If you have your own web hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to start your own website hosting reseller business and to get good money in a niche that grows each and every year. With the growing demand for sites, you will need only three things to start - a server; a payment application, which will be the connection between your online store and the website hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, which will help you 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. The ability to install server-side software, for example, will give you a benefit over competitors and will mean even more satisfied customers. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are generated on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, because of this, some websites may not work properly. Running your own reseller business provides you with the option to generate a profit, while you can still use the server for hosting your personal websites as well.
