Aside from hosting resource-demanding websites, there is a further reason to buy a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to create your hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, as an increasing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so that they need hosting space and a domain. If you have a hosting server, you will be able to generate web hosting plans and then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses if you host your own Internet sites on the server too, but you will also make a good profit by having a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the link between the reseller web site and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive web payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your clients will have more resources and you'll be able to install the server-side software that their sites may need in order to work effectively. The latter isn't possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, as you will have some restrictions in this regard.
