When you have your own website hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to start your own web hosting reseller business and to get good money in a market that grows every year. With the increasing necessity for sites, you will need just 3 things to start - a server; a billing application, which will be the connection between your online store and the website hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, that will enable you to accept online financial transactions. Since there're ready-made reseller programs available, the usage of your own server will provide you with better control over the software environment. To be able to install server-side software, for example, provides you with an advantage over rivals and will mean more happy clients. With a standard reseller program, the accounts are created on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, as a result, some sites may not function effectively. Having your own reseller business will provide you with the ability to generate a profit, while you can still use the server for your own websites too.
