When you have your own server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to launch your own website hosting reseller business and to get good money in a market that keeps growing each and every year. With the growing need for sites, you will need just three things to start - a server; a payment application, that is the connection between your e-store and the hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, that will allow you to accept online transactions. As there are ready-made reseller programs out there, the use of your own server provides you with better control over the software environment. To be able to install server-side software, for example, will provide you with an advantage over the competition and will mean more pleased customers. When you use a standard reseller program, the accounts are made on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, as a result, some Internet sites may not work correctly. Running your own reseller business will give you the ability to make a profit, while you may still use the server for hosting your individual websites as well.
