When you have your own hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you can start your own hosting reseller business and to get good money in a niche that grows every year. With the growing need for websites, you'll need just three things to start - a server; a payment app, which will be the connection between your web store and the website hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, that will allow you to accept web financial transactions. As there are ready-made reseller applications out there, the use of your own server will give you further control over the software environment. To be able to set up server-side software, for example, provides you with an advantage over rivals and will mean more happy clients. When you use a standard reseller program, the accounts are set up on a shared server, which means that no software can be installed and, because of this, some websites may not function effectively. Running your own reseller business will provide you with the opportunity to generate income, while you can still use the server for your individual websites too.
