When you have your own server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to start your own web hosting reseller business and to make good money in a market 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 billing app, which will be the connection between your e-store and the web hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, that will enable you to accept web financial transactions. Since there are ready-made reseller programs out there, the use of your own server will provide you with additional control over the software environment. To be able to install server-side software, for instance, will give you an advantage over rivals and means more pleased customers. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are created 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 will provide you with the opportunity to make a profit, while you can still use the server for your personal websites too.
