Aside from hosting resource-demanding websites, there's one more reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to launch your hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, since a growing number of people and businesses start their web presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain name. If you have a website hosting server, you'll be able to make website hosting plans then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your own Internet sites on the server as well, but you may also make a decent profit by running a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, that will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, plus a business account with a payment processor for example PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive online payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your clients will have extra resources and you'll be able to install the server-side software which their sites may need so as to work properly. The latter is not possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you'll have some limitations in this regard.
