Aside from hosting resource-demanding websites, there's a further reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your web hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, due to the fact that a growing number of people and businesses start their online presence, which means that they need hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you can make website hosting offers and then sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses when you host your personal websites on the server too, but you will also make a very good profit by owning 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, as well as a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive web payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the usage of a regular reseller program is the fact that your clients will have extra system resources and you're able to set up the server-side software that their websites may need in order to work effectively. The latter isn't possible with a shared hosting reseller program, as you will have specific restrictions in this regard.
