If you have your own hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you can launch your own web hosting reseller business and to get good money in a market that keeps growing each and every year. With the increasing need for Internet sites, you'll need only 3 things to start - a server; a payment application, that is the connection between your store and the website hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, which will help you accept online payments. As there are ready-made reseller applications out there, 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, provides you with an advantage over the competition and will mean many more pleased customers. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are made on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, for that reason, some Internet sites may not operate properly. Running your own reseller business will give you the opportunity to make a profit, while you can still use the server for hosting your personal websites as well.
