If you have your own server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to launch your own web hosting reseller business and to get good money in a niche that is maintaining growth every year. With the increasing need for websites, you'll need just three things to start - a server; a billing app, which is the connection between your online store and the hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, that will allow you to accept web financial transactions. Since there are ready-made reseller programs out there, the usage of your own server will give you additional control over the software environment. To be able to install server-side software, for instance, will provide you with an advantage over the competition and will mean more pleased customers. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are created on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, because of this, some websites may not work efficiently. Running your own reseller company will give you the ability to generate a profit, while you may still use the server for hosting your own websites as well.
