When you have your own server, virtual or dedicated, you can start your own web hosting reseller business and to make good money in a niche that is maintaining growth every year. With the increasing necessity for websites, you will need just 3 things to start - a server; a payment application, which will be the connection between your web store and the hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, which will help you accept web payments. While there're ready-made reseller applications available, the use of your own server will provide you with further control over the software environment. To be able to install server-side software, for instance, provides you with a benefit over rivals and will mean more pleased clients. With a standard reseller program, the accounts are set up on a shared server, which means that no software can be installed and, as a result, some websites may not operate efficiently. Having your own reseller company will give you the option to make a profit, while you may still use the server for your own websites as well.
