If you have your own hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you'll be able to start your own website hosting reseller business and to make good money in a market that continues to grow every year. With the growing necessity for sites, you'll need just three things to start - a server; a payment app, which will be the connection between your online store and the web hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, which will allow you to accept web financial transactions. As there are ready-made reseller programs available, the usage of your own server will give you additional control over the software environment. The ability to set up server-side software, for instance, gives you a benefit over the competition and will mean many more pleased customers. When you use a standard reseller program, the accounts are set up on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, as a result, some Internet sites may not operate efficiently. Running your own reseller business will give you the opportunity to generate a profit, while you may still use the server for your own Internet sites too.
