If you have your own website hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to launch your own web hosting reseller business and to make good money in a market that is maintaining growth every year. With the growing demand for Internet sites, you will need only 3 things to start - a server; a billing app, which will be the connection between your electronic store and the website hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, which will allow you to accept web financial transactions. While there're ready-made reseller applications available, the use of your own server will provide you with additional control over the software environment. The ability to install server-side software, for example, provides you with an advantage over competitors and means more satisfied clients. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are created on a shared server, therefore no software can be installed and, for that reason, some websites may not function effectively. Running your own reseller business will give you the ability to make a profit, while you may still use the server for hosting your personal sites as well.
