Aside from hosting resource-demanding sites, there is another reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your website hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, as more and more people and businesses start their web presence, so they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a server, you will be able to create web hosting deals then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your own websites on the server as well, but you may also make a very good profit by running a lucrative business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, which will be the link between the reseller web site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive web payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your clients will have more system resources and you are able to set up the server-side software that their sites may need to work properly. The latter isn't possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, since you will have specific limitations in this regard.
