Aside from hosting resource-demanding sites, there is another reason to purchase a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to create your website hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, considering that a growing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so that they need website hosting space and a domain name. If you have a server, you can create web hosting deals and then sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your personal Internet sites on the server too, but you will also make a very good profit by operating a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, that will be the connection between the reseller site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive online payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a standard reseller program is that your clients will have considerably more resources and you will be able to set up the server-side software that their sites may need in order to operate properly. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you'll have specific restrictions in this regard.
