If you have your own website hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you'll be able to launch your own hosting reseller business and to make good money in a niche that keeps growing each and every year. With the growing need for Internet sites, you'll need just three things to start - a server; a payment application, that will be the connection between your e-store and the website hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, that will enable you to accept online payments. While there're ready-made reseller programs available, the use of your own server will give you further control over the software environment. To be able to install server-side software, for instance, gives you a benefit over the competition and will mean even more satisfied clients. When you use a standard reseller program, the accounts are set up on a shared server, therefore no software can be installed and, because of this, some websites may not work correctly. Having your own reseller business provides you with the option to make a profit, while you can still use the server for hosting your personal websites as well.
