Other than hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's a further reason to buy a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, considering that a growing number of people and businesses start their online presence, which means that they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a hosting server, you can create hosting plans and sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your own websites on the server too, but you will also make a good profit by operating a lucrative business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, that will be the link between the reseller website and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor like 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 a lot more resources and you are able to install the server-side software that their sites may need to operate efficiently. The latter is not possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, as you'll have specific limitations in this regard.
