Other than hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is one more reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to make your hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, considering that a growing number of people and businesses start their web presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you will be able to make website hosting package deals then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your personal sites on the server as well, but you may also make a decent profit by having a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, which will be the connection between the reseller web site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive Internet payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the use of a standard reseller program is the fact that your clients will have a lot more system resources and you can install the server-side software which their websites may need so as to function efficiently. The aforementioned will not be possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you'll have specific limitations in this regard.
