If 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 is maintaining growth each and every year. With the growing need for Internet sites, you'll need only 3 things to start - a server; a payment application, that is the connection between your e-store and the website hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, that will allow you to accept web payments. While there're ready-made reseller applications available, 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 a benefit over rivals and means more pleased customers. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are set up on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, for that reason, some Internet sites may not function efficiently. Having your own reseller business will provide you with the opportunity to generate a profit, while you may still use the server for hosting your individual websites too.
