Aside from hosting resource-demanding sites, there is another reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to create your web hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, because a growing number of people and businesses start their online presence, so they need hosting space and a domain. If you have a website hosting server, you'll be able to generate hosting packages and then sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your personal websites on the server as well, but you will also make a very good profit by running a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, that will be the connection 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 online payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your customers will have extra system resources and you are able to set up the server-side software that their websites may need to function efficiently. The latter is not possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, because you will have some restrictions in this regard.
