If you have your own hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you can start your own web hosting reseller business and to earn good money in a niche that keeps growing every year. With the growing necessity for sites, you'll need only 3 things to start - a server; a billing application, that will be the connection between your store and the web hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, which will enable you to accept web payments. While there are ready-made reseller applications available, the usage of your own server gives you further control over the software environment. To be able to install server-side software, for example, will give you an advantage over competitors and will mean many more pleased customers. When you use a standard reseller program, the accounts are made on a shared server, which means that no software can be installed and, for that reason, some websites may not function efficiently. Having your own reseller business will provide you with the chance to make a profit, while you can still use the server for your personal sites too.
