Aside from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is another reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, since more and more people and businesses start their online presence, so they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a hosting server, you can create hosting plans then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your own websites on the server too, but you can also make a great profit by having a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, which will be the connection between the reseller site and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor for example PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive Internet payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your clients will have more resources and you are able to install the server-side software that their Internet sites may need so as to function efficiently. The aforementioned isn't possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, because you will have some limitations in this regard.
