If you have your own server, virtual or dedicated, you can start your own web hosting reseller business and to make good money in a niche that keeps growing each and every year. With the growing need for sites, you'll need only three things to start - a server; a payment app, which is the connection between your web store and the web hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, which will help you accept online payments. While there are ready-made reseller applications out there, the use of your own server gives you further control over the software environment. To be able to set up server-side software, for example, provides you with a benefit over competitors and will mean more satisfied clients. When you use a standard reseller program, the accounts are generated on a shared server, which means that no software can be installed and, as a result, some Internet sites may not function effectively. Having your own reseller company provides you with the chance to generate a profit, while you may still use the server for your individual websites as well.
