When you have your own website hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to launch your own website hosting reseller business and to get good money in a niche that continues to grow every year. With the increasing necessity for Internet sites, you'll need just three things to start - a server; a payment application, that will be the connection between your online store and the website hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, which will enable you to accept online payments. As there're ready-made reseller applications out there, the use of your own server will give you additional control over the software environment. To be able to install server-side software, for example, gives you an advantage over competitors and will mean more happy clients. With a standard reseller program, the accounts are set up on a shared server, which means that no software can be installed and, for that reason, some Internet sites may not work properly. Having your own reseller business provides you with the option to make a profit, while you may still use the server for your own Internet sites too.
