When you have your own web hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you will be able to start your own web hosting reseller business and to get good money in a market that keeps growing each and every year. With the growing demand for websites, you will need only three things to start - a server; a billing application, which will be the connection between your online store and the web hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, which will enable you to accept web payments. As there are ready-made reseller applications available, the usage of your own server will provide you with further control over the software environment. The ability to install server-side software, for instance, provides you with an advantage over competitors and means even more happy customers. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are generated on a shared server, therefore no software can be installed and, for that reason, some websites may not work correctly. Having your own reseller company will give you the ability to generate income, while you may still use the server for hosting your own Internet sites as well.
