When you have your own web hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you'll be able to launch your own website hosting reseller business and to make good money in a market that grows each and every year. With the growing necessity for Internet sites, you will need only 3 things to start - a server; a billing app, that will be the connection between your web store and the hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, which will allow you to accept web payments. While there're ready-made reseller programs out there, the use of your own server provides you with further control over the software environment. To be able to set up server-side software, for example, will provide you with an advantage over the competition and will mean more happy clients. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are created on a shared server, which means that no software can be installed and, because of this, some sites may not function efficiently. Having your own reseller business will provide you with the ability to make a profit, while you may still use the server for your own Internet sites too.
