If you have your own server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to start your own website hosting reseller business and to get good money in a niche that is maintaining growth every year. With the increasing demand for websites, you will need only three things to start - a server; a payment application, which will be the connection between your web store and the web hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, that will help you accept online transactions. While there are ready-made reseller applications available, the usage of your own server provides you with additional control over the software environment. To be able to install server-side software, for example, will provide you with an advantage over rivals and will mean many more happy clients. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are set up on a shared server, therefore no software can be installed and, for that reason, some sites may not operate properly. Having your own reseller company will provide you with the chance to generate a profit, while you may still use the server for your personal websites too.
