If you have your own website hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you'll be able to launch your own web hosting reseller business and to earn good money in a market that grows each and every year. With the growing necessity for sites, you'll need just three things to start - a server; a payment application, which will be the connection between your web store and the hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, that will help you accept online financial transactions. While there're ready-made reseller programs available, the usage of your own server gives you more control over the software environment. To be able to install server-side software, for example, provides you with a benefit over competitors and means even more satisfied clients. Using 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 sites may not function properly. Having your own reseller company gives you the opportunity to generate a profit, while you can still use the server for hosting your individual sites too.
