Aside from hosting resource-demanding sites, there's a further reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to create your website hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, because an increasing number of people and businesses start their web presence, which means that they need hosting space and a domain name. If you have a server, you'll be able to make web hosting packages and sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses when you host your own websites on the server too, but you may also make a good profit by having a successful business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, that will be the link between the reseller website and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive Internet payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of a standard reseller program is the fact that your clients will have much more system resources and you'll be able to install the server-side software that their websites may need to function efficiently. The aforementioned isn't possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, because you'll have some limitations in this regard.
