Aside from hosting resource-demanding websites, there is one more reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, since a growing number of people and businesses start their online presence, which means that they need web hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you can make website hosting deals and sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses in case you host your personal Internet sites on the server too, but you may also make a great profit by running a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the connection between the reseller site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor for instance PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive web payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the usage of a regular reseller program is that your clients will have extra system resources and you'll be able to install the server-side software which their sites may need to work efficiently. The latter is not possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you'll have certain limitations in this regard.
