Other than hosting resource-demanding websites, there's another reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to create your web hosting company. This is an ever expanding business, because an increasing number of people and businesses start their online presence, which means that they need hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you'll be able to create hosting packages and then sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your own 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, billing software, that will be the link between the reseller web site and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor for instance PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive Internet payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a regular reseller program is the fact that your clients will have more resources and you'll be able to set up the server-side software which their sites may need in order to operate properly. The aforementioned isn't possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, as you'll have specific limitations in this regard.
