When you have your own website hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you'll be able to launch your own hosting reseller business and to get good money in a niche that is maintaining growth each and every year. With the increasing necessity for sites, you will need only three things to start - a server; a billing application, that is the connection between your web store and the hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, that will help you accept web payments. As there're ready-made reseller programs available, the use of your own server gives you additional control over the software environment. The ability to install server-side software, for example, will provide you with a benefit over competitors and will mean many more pleased 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 effectively. Running your own reseller business provides you with the opportunity to generate a profit, while you can still use the server for hosting your own websites as well.
