When you have your own hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to start your own website hosting reseller business and to get good money in a niche that continues to grow every year. With the increasing need for sites, you will need only 3 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 payment processor, that will help you accept online financial transactions. Since there're ready-made reseller applications out there, the usage of your own server gives you better control over the software environment. To be able to set up server-side software, for example, will provide you with an advantage over competitors and means even more pleased clients. When you use 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 properly. Having your own reseller company will provide you with the option to make a profit, while you can still use the server for your individual websites too.
