If 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 continues to grow each and every year. With the growing need for Internet sites, you'll need just three things to start - a server; a billing application, that is the connection between your store and the web hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, that will allow you to accept online financial transactions. While there are ready-made reseller programs available, the usage of your own server will give you more control over the software environment. To be able to install server-side software, for instance, will provide you with a benefit over rivals and means many more happy customers. With a standard reseller program, the accounts are set up on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, because of this, some websites may not work effectively. Having your own reseller business will give you the chance to generate a profit, while you can still use the server for hosting your own sites as well.
