When you have your own server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to start your own web hosting reseller business and to make good money in a market that keeps growing every year. With the growing need for Internet sites, you will need just three things to start - a server; a billing app, that is the connection between your online store and the website hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, which will enable you to accept web transactions. As there're ready-made reseller programs out there, the use of your own server gives you further control over the software environment. To be able to set up server-side software, for instance, will provide you with a benefit over competitors and will mean many more pleased clients. With a standard reseller program, the accounts are set up on a shared server, therefore no software can be installed and, because of this, some websites may not operate efficiently. Running your own reseller company gives you the opportunity to generate income, while you can still use the server for hosting your personal websites as well.
