When you have your own website hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to start your own web hosting reseller business and to earn good money in a market that continues to grow every year. With the growing necessity for sites, you will need just three things to start - a server; a payment application, which will be the connection between your store and the web hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, which will allow you to accept web financial transactions. While there are ready-made reseller applications out there, the use of your own server gives you further control over the software environment. To be able to set up server-side software, for example, provides you with a benefit over rivals and will mean more pleased clients. When you use 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 work effectively. Running your own reseller business will give you the option to make a profit, while you can still use the server for hosting your personal Internet sites as well.
