Apart from hosting resource-demanding websites, there's one more reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your website hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, due to the fact that an increasing number of people and businesses start their web presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a hosting server, you'll be able to create hosting package deals and then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses if you host your personal sites on the server too, but you will also make a very good profit by having a successful business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, that will be the connection between the reseller web site and your web space, plus a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive online payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a standard reseller program is the fact that your customers will have much more resources and you will be able to install the server-side software which their sites may need to function efficiently. The latter will not be possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, since you'll have specific limitations in this regard.
