When you have your own hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you can launch your own website hosting reseller business and to earn good money in a market that keeps growing every year. With the growing demand for Internet sites, you will need just three things to start - a server; a billing app, which will be the connection between your online store and the 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 further control over the software environment. To be able to install server-side software, for instance, gives you an advantage over rivals and will mean many more happy clients. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are set up on a shared server, therefore no software can be installed and, because of this, some Internet sites may not function efficiently. Having your own reseller business gives you the opportunity to make a profit, while you may still use the server for your personal sites as well.
