I am thinking about renting a dedicated server, more as a hobby than a business. I will host a few of my own sites and make some tests, it's not to earn money.
But, as it costs money to rent a dedicated server and as I will have so much free space available and ressources, I thought: "why not try to recover a small part of the cost"?
I don't want to start a web hosting business because I would need to have at least a second server, hire people for the support etc. I don't want to create an umpteenth resale rights memberships, there are enough I think and it would require a few extra hard disks!
I was more thinking about maybe buying a script to install on my server and then ask a small subscription fee for people to get access to this service. Any idea the script I could buy or the type of services I could offer? I don't want something that would take a lot of my time, rather something quite automatic.
Any ideas or advices?
