In addition to hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is another reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to start your hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, since more and more people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so that they need website hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you'll be able to make website hosting deals and sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses when you host your personal sites on the server too, but you may also make a great profit by operating a successful business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, that will be the link between the reseller web site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive web payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the usage of an ordinary 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 Internet sites may need to operate properly. The aforementioned isn't possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you'll have some limitations in this regard.
