If you have your own website hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to launch your own website hosting reseller business and to make good money in a niche that is maintaining growth each and every year. With the growing necessity for Internet sites, you will need just 3 things to start - a server; a billing application, that will be the connection between your store and the hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, which will enable you to accept web payments. Since there are ready-made reseller programs available, the use of your own server will give you additional control over the software environment. To be able to set up server-side software, for example, will provide you with a benefit over the competition and will mean even more satisfied clients. With a standard reseller program, the accounts are generated on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, because of this, some Internet sites may not operate properly. Running your own reseller business provides you with the opportunity to generate a profit, while you may still use the server for hosting your personal websites too.
