If you have your own hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you can start your own web hosting reseller business and to make good money in a niche that continues to grow every year. With the increasing demand for websites, you'll need only 3 things to start - a server; a billing app, which is the connection between your store and the hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, which will enable you to accept web transactions. Since there're ready-made reseller programs available, the usage of your own server gives you further control over the software environment. To be able to install server-side software, for example, provides you with a benefit over competitors and will mean many more happy customers. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are made on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, for that reason, some Internet sites may not operate correctly. Running your own reseller business provides you with the option to make a profit, while you can still use the server for hosting your personal websites too.
