If you have your own server, virtual or dedicated, you can launch your own website hosting reseller business and to get good money in a market that is maintaining growth each and every year. With the growing need for sites, you'll need just 3 things to start - a server; a payment app, which will be the connection between your store and the web hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, which will allow you to accept online transactions. Since there are ready-made reseller applications available, the use of your own server gives you more control over the software environment. The ability to install server-side software, for instance, gives you an advantage over competitors and will mean even more pleased customers. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are generated on a shared server, therefore no software can be installed and, as a result, some sites may not operate efficiently. Running your own reseller business provides you with the option to generate a profit, while you can still use the server for hosting your personal websites as well.
