In addition to hosting resource-demanding websites, there's a further reason to purchase a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to create your hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, because a growing number of people and businesses start their online presence, which means that they need hosting space and a domain. If you have a server, you'll be able to make website hosting packages then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses if you host your own Internet sites on the server as well, but you can also make a great profit by owning a flourishing 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, as well as 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 usage of a standard reseller program is the fact that your clients will have considerably more system resources and you can install the server-side software that their Internet sites may need in order to function efficiently. The latter isn't possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, as you'll have certain limitations in this regard.
