If you have your own hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to start your own web hosting reseller business and to earn good money in a market that grows every year. With the increasing demand for Internet sites, you'll need just three things to start - a server; a payment application, which is the connection between your store and the website hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, that will allow you to accept web payments. Since there are ready-made reseller programs available, the use of your own server will provide you with more control over the software environment. To be able to install server-side software, for example, will provide you with a benefit over rivals and will mean many more satisfied customers. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are created on a shared server, therefore no software can be installed and, for that reason, some websites may not operate properly. Running your own reseller business gives you the ability to generate income, while you can still use the server for hosting your own websites too.
