Default Why Rent a Server?

Maybe it's been asked and answered but here goes. I have been a Vent user for a couple years, only as a user on a friends server. Well, that friend no longer uses the server so I wanted to make my own. I downloaded the server files, installed them, followed all the instructions, and Voila!, it works. Now here's the question part. Why would I PAY for a rented server if I can run it all myself? Is it only if I need more than 8 people? (Which I don't.) Also, are there any security issues with people being allowed into my computer as I am hosting it?

Thanks for your help.
