When you have your own hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you'll be able to launch your own hosting reseller business and to make good money in a market that keeps growing every year. With the increasing demand for Internet sites, you'll 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 billing processor, which will help you accept web financial transactions. Since there're ready-made reseller programs available, the usage of your own server gives you further control over the software environment. The ability to install server-side software, for instance, provides you with an advantage over rivals and will mean even more satisfied customers. When you use a standard reseller program, the accounts are generated on a shared server, therefore no software can be installed and, because of this, some websites may not operate effectively. Running your own reseller company gives you the chance to generate a profit, while you can still use the server for your own Internet sites too.
