When you have your own web hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you'll be able to start your own web hosting reseller business and to get good money in a market that grows every year. With the growing demand for websites, you will need just three things to start - a server; a payment application, that is the connection between your e-store and the hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, that will allow you to accept online financial transactions. While there're ready-made reseller applications out there, the usage of your own server provides you with additional control over the software environment. To be able to set up server-side software, for example, will provide you with an advantage over competitors and will mean even more satisfied customers. With a standard reseller program, the accounts are generated on a shared server, therefore no software can be installed and, for that reason, some Internet sites may not operate efficiently. Running your own reseller business will give you the opportunity to generate a profit, while you may still use the server for your personal websites as well.
