When you have your own server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to start your own website hosting reseller business and to get good money in a niche that grows every year. With the increasing demand for Internet sites, you will need just three things to start - a server; a payment application, that is the connection between your e-store and the web hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, which will help you accept web transactions. While there are ready-made reseller applications out there, the use of your own server will give you more control over the software environment. To be able to install server-side software, for example, gives you a benefit over competitors and will mean even more pleased customers. With a standard reseller program, the accounts are set up on a shared server, therefore no software can be installed and, for that reason, some sites may not work correctly. Having your own reseller company will give you the chance to generate a profit, while you may still use the server for hosting your personal websites as well.
