In addition to hosting resource-demanding websites, there is a further reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to launch your web hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, due to the fact that a growing number of people and businesses start their web presence, so they need website hosting space and a domain. If you have a website hosting server, you will be able to generate web hosting offers then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your own websites on the server too, but you can also make a very good profit by having a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, which will be the connection between the reseller web site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor for instance PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive online payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of a standard reseller program is the fact that your clients will have more resources and you will be able to set up the server-side software which their sites may need to function properly. The latter will not be possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, since you'll have some limitations in this regard.
