If you have your own web hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to launch your own web hosting reseller business and to make good money in a niche that keeps growing every year. With the growing necessity for sites, you'll need just three things to start - a server; a payment app, that is the connection between your web store and the web hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, which will help you accept online payments. Since there're ready-made reseller applications out there, the use of your own server will give you more control over the software environment. The ability to set up server-side software, for example, gives you an advantage over competitors and means even more satisfied clients. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are created on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, as a result, some websites may not work correctly. Having your own reseller business gives you the chance to generate income, while you may still use the server for your individual sites too.
