When you have your own server, virtual or dedicated, you'll be able to launch your own web hosting reseller business and to make good money in a niche that grows every year. With the increasing need for Internet sites, you'll need only 3 things to start - a server; a payment application, that will be the connection between your store and the website hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, that will enable you to accept online transactions. While there're ready-made reseller programs out there, the use of your own server gives you more control over the software environment. To be able to set up server-side software, for instance, provides you with a benefit over competitors and means more happy customers. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are created on a shared server, which means that no software can be installed and, as a result, some Internet sites may not function properly. Having your own reseller business provides you with the chance to generate income, while you can still use the server for hosting your personal websites too.
