If you have your own hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you'll be able to start your own hosting reseller business and to make good money in a market that is maintaining growth each and every year. With the increasing demand for Internet sites, you will need just 3 things to start - a server; a payment application, which is the connection between your e-store and the web hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, that will allow you to accept web transactions. As there're ready-made reseller applications available, the usage of your own server gives you more control over the software environment. To be able to set up server-side software, for instance, gives you a benefit over the competition and will mean many more pleased clients. When you use a standard reseller program, the accounts are generated on a shared server, which means that no software can be installed and, for that reason, some sites may not work effectively. Having your own reseller business will provide you with the chance to generate income, while you can still use the server for hosting your own Internet sites too.
