Other than hosting resource-demanding websites, there is a further reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to make your website hosting company. This is an ever expanding business, considering that an increasing number of people and businesses start their web presence, so that they need website hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you will be able to generate hosting offers and sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses when you host your personal Internet sites on the server too, but you can also make a good profit by operating a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, that will be the link between the reseller site and your web space, plus a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive online payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the usage of an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your clients will have a lot more system resources and you are able to install the server-side software which their Internet sites may need to operate effectively. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared hosting reseller program, because you'll have some limitations in this regard.
