When you have your own hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to start your own web hosting reseller business and to make good money in a niche that continues to grow each and every year. With the growing need for sites, you'll need just 3 things to start - a server; a payment application, that will be the connection between your electronic store and the website hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, that will allow you to accept online financial transactions. While there are ready-made reseller applications available, the use of your own server will provide you with better control over the software environment. The ability to install server-side software, for example, gives you a benefit over rivals and means many more happy clients. With a standard reseller program, the accounts are generated on a shared server, which means that no software can be installed and, for that reason, some Internet sites may not function efficiently. Having your own reseller company provides you with the chance to generate income, while you may still use the server for hosting your personal sites as well.
