If you have your own website hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you'll be able to start your own web hosting reseller business and to earn good money in a niche that keeps growing every year. With the growing need for sites, you'll 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 payment processor, that will allow you to accept web financial transactions. As there're ready-made reseller programs out there, the usage of your own server will give you further control over the software environment. The ability to install server-side software, for instance, will give you an advantage over the competition and means many more satisfied customers. When you use a standard reseller program, the accounts are generated on a shared server, which means that no software can be installed and, for that reason, some Internet sites may not function correctly. Having your own reseller business provides you with the opportunity to make a profit, while you may still use the server for hosting your own sites as well.
