When you have your own server, virtual or dedicated, you'll be able to start your own hosting reseller business and to get good money in a niche that is maintaining growth every year. With the growing necessity for sites, you will need only three things to start - a server; a billing app, that will be the connection between your store and the web hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, that will enable you to accept web financial transactions. Since there are ready-made reseller applications out there, the use of your own server gives you better control over the software environment. To be able to set up server-side software, for instance, will give you an advantage over the competition and means many more pleased clients. With a standard reseller program, the accounts are made on a shared server, which means that no software can be installed and, as a result, some Internet sites may not work correctly. Having your own reseller business will give you the ability to generate income, while you may still use the server for your own websites too.
