If you have your own server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to launch your own hosting reseller business and to earn good money in a market that grows every year. With the growing need for websites, you'll need just three things to start - a server; a payment app, that will be the connection between your e-store and the hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, which will help you accept web transactions. Since there are ready-made reseller programs out there, the usage of your own server gives you additional control over the software environment. The ability to install server-side software, for instance, will provide you with a benefit over the competition and means more happy customers. With a standard reseller program, the accounts are set up on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, as a result, some Internet sites may not operate efficiently. Running your own reseller business gives you the ability to generate a profit, while you can still use the server for hosting your own Internet sites too.
