If you have your own hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to start your own web hosting reseller business and to get good money in a niche that continues to grow every year. With the increasing demand for sites, you will need only 3 things to start - a server; a billing application, that is the connection between your e-store and the website hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, which will enable you to accept online financial transactions. As there are ready-made reseller programs out there, the usage of your own server will give you further control over the software environment. To be able to set up server-side software, for example, provides you with an advantage over the competition and will mean even more happy clients. With a standard reseller program, the accounts are generated on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, for that reason, some Internet sites may not work effectively. Having your own reseller company gives you the option to generate a profit, while you can still use the server for your own Internet sites too.
