In addition to hosting resource-demanding websites, there's a further reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to make your web hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, as more and more 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 will be able to make web hosting plans and then sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your personal Internet sites on the server as well, but you can also make a decent profit by owning a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, that will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive online payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the use of a standard reseller program is the fact that your clients will have much more resources and you are able to set up the server-side software that their sites may need to function properly. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, as you will have specific restrictions in this regard.
