In addition to hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is one more reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to start your website hosting company. This is an ever expanding business, as more and more people and businesses start their online presence, so they need hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you can generate website hosting packages and sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your own Internet sites on the server as well, but you may also make a good profit by owning a prosperous business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the connection between the reseller web site and your web space, plus a business account with a payment processor for example PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive web payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a regular reseller program is the fact that your customers will have more resources and you will be able to install the server-side software which their Internet sites may need in order to function efficiently. The aforementioned will not be possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you will have specific restrictions in this regard.
