In addition to hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's one more reason to purchase a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to create your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, as an increasing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a website hosting server, you will be able to create hosting packages and 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 will also make a very good profit by owning a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, that will be the link between the reseller website and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive web payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your clients will have much more resources and you'll be able to set up the server-side software that their websites may need to operate properly. The latter is not possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you will have specific restrictions in this regard.
