When you have your own server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to start your own hosting reseller business and to earn good money in a niche that is maintaining growth each and every year. With the growing necessity for Internet sites, you will need just three things to start - a server; a payment app, which is the connection between your web store and the hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, which will help you accept web transactions. Since there're ready-made reseller programs available, the usage of your own server will provide you with additional control over the software environment. The ability to install server-side software, for example, will give you an advantage over competitors and will mean more happy customers. When you use a standard reseller program, the accounts are set up on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, for that reason, some websites may not work correctly. Running your own reseller company will give you the ability to make a profit, while you may still use the server for hosting your individual sites as well.
