When you have your own web hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you can launch your own web hosting reseller business and to make good money in a market that continues to grow every year. With the growing need for Internet sites, you'll need just three things to start - a server; a payment application, which is the connection between your store and the hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, which will enable you to accept online payments. While there are ready-made reseller applications available, the use of your own server gives you additional control over the software environment. The ability to install server-side software, for example, provides you with a benefit over rivals and will mean more satisfied clients. When you use a standard reseller program, the accounts are set up on a shared server, which means that no software can be installed and, for that reason, some Internet sites may not function properly. Running your own reseller business provides you with the option to generate a profit, while you may still use the server for hosting your individual websites too.
