If you have your own web hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you'll be able to launch your own website hosting reseller business and to earn good money in a niche that is maintaining growth each and every year. With the growing necessity for Internet sites, you'll need just 3 things to start - a server; a payment application, which will be the connection between your store and the website hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, which will allow you to accept online transactions. Since there are ready-made reseller programs available, the usage of your own server provides you with more control over the software environment. To be able to set up server-side software, for example, will give you a benefit over the competition and will mean many more happy clients. When you use a standard reseller program, the accounts are generated on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, for that reason, some websites may not work effectively. Having your own reseller business will give you the option to generate a profit, while you may still use the server for your own sites as well.
