Aside from hosting resource-demanding websites, there's one more reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your web hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, because more and more people and businesses start their web presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you can make hosting deals and then sell them, so 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 decent profit by running a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, that will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor for example PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive Internet payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the usage of a regular reseller program is the fact that your clients will have considerably more resources and you're able to install the server-side software which their websites may need to operate properly. The latter is not possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you will have some restrictions in this regard.
