When you have your own web hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you can launch your own web hosting reseller business and to get good money in a market that continues to grow every year. With the increasing demand for websites, you'll need just 3 things to start - a server; a billing application, which will be the connection between your electronic store and the hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, that will help you accept web financial transactions. While there are ready-made reseller applications out there, the use of your own server will provide you with additional control over the software environment. The ability to set up server-side software, for example, will give you an advantage over the competition and will mean even more pleased customers. With a standard reseller program, the accounts are created on a shared server, which means that no software can be installed and, because of this, some websites may not operate correctly. Having your own reseller business will provide you with the chance to generate income, while you may still use the server for hosting your personal websites as well.
