Other than hosting resource-demanding sites, there's a further reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to start your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, since a growing number of 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 generate hosting deals then sell them, so that 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 very good profit by running a successful business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, that will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order 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 much more system resources and you will be able to set up the server-side software which their sites may need so as to work properly. The aforementioned will not be possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, because you will have certain restrictions in this regard.
