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 earn good money in a niche that continues to grow each and every year. With the growing demand for Internet sites, you will need only 3 things to start - a server; a payment app, that will be the connection between your web store and the web hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, that will help you accept online payments. As there're ready-made reseller applications out there, 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, gives you a benefit over competitors and means even more pleased clients. With a standard reseller program, the accounts are created on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, because of this, some websites may not operate effectively. Having your own reseller business gives you the option to make a profit, while you can still use the server for your personal sites too.
