When you have your own web hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you'll be able to launch your own web hosting reseller business and to earn good money in a niche that grows each and every year. With the growing demand for Internet sites, you will need only 3 things to start - a server; a billing application, that will be the connection between your online store and the web hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, that will allow you to accept web financial transactions. As there're ready-made reseller programs available, the use of your own server provides you with better control over the software environment. To be able to set up server-side software, for instance, provides you with a benefit over competitors and means more happy clients. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are set up on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, for that reason, some websites may not function correctly. Running your own reseller business gives you the ability to generate a profit, while you may still use the server for your personal sites as well.
