If you have your own hosting 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 every year. With the growing necessity for websites, you will need just 3 things to start - a server; a payment app, that is the connection between your web store and the website hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, which will enable you to accept online financial transactions. Since there are ready-made reseller programs out there, the use of your own server will provide you with more control over the software environment. The ability to install server-side software, for instance, gives you a benefit over the competition and will mean even more pleased customers. With a standard reseller program, the accounts are set up on a shared server, therefore no software can be installed and, for that reason, some sites may not operate properly. Having your own reseller company gives you the chance to make a profit, while you may still use the server for your individual sites too.
