When you have your own hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you'll be able to launch your own web hosting reseller business and to make good money in a market that is maintaining growth every year. With the increasing demand for websites, you'll need just 3 things to start - a server; a billing app, that is the connection between your online store and the website hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, which will help you accept online payments. Since there are ready-made reseller programs out there, the usage of your own server gives you more control over the software environment. The ability to set up server-side software, for instance, gives you an advantage over the competition and means more happy clients. When you use a standard reseller program, the accounts are created on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, because of this, some sites may not work efficiently. Having your own reseller business will provide you with the opportunity to generate income, while you can still use the server for your personal Internet sites as well.
