When you have your own hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you'll be able to start your own web hosting reseller business and to get good money in a niche that keeps growing each and every year. With the increasing demand for sites, you'll need only 3 things to start - a server; a billing application, which is the connection between your store and the website hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, that will allow you to accept web financial transactions. While there are ready-made reseller applications available, the use of your own server will give you further control over the software environment. The ability to install server-side software, for instance, will provide you with a benefit over competitors and means more satisfied customers. When you use a standard reseller program, the accounts are created on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, for that reason, some sites may not work efficiently. Running your own reseller company gives you the chance to generate income, while you may still use the server for hosting your individual sites too.
