When you have your own website hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you'll be able to launch your own website hosting reseller business and to earn good money in a niche that keeps growing each and every year. With the growing need for websites, you'll need just three things to start - a server; a payment application, that is the connection between your store and the website hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, that will allow you to accept online financial transactions. As there're ready-made reseller applications available, the use of your own server will give you further control over the software environment. The ability to install server-side software, for instance, will give you a benefit over the competition and will mean more happy customers. When you use 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. Running your own reseller company will provide you with the ability to make a profit, while you can still use the server for hosting your own Internet sites too.
