When you have your own hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to launch your own web hosting reseller business and to make good money in a niche that is maintaining growth each and every year. With the growing demand for websites, you will need just 3 things to start - a server; a payment application, which is the connection between your web store and the website hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, that will help you accept web payments. As there're ready-made reseller programs out there, the usage of your own server will give you more control over the software environment. The ability to set up server-side software, for example, gives you a benefit over rivals and will mean many more happy clients. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are generated on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, because of this, some sites may not operate efficiently. Having your own reseller business will provide you with the option to generate a profit, while you can still use the server for hosting your personal sites as well.
