If you have your own website hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you can start your own hosting reseller business and to get good money in a market that is maintaining growth every year. With the increasing necessity for Internet sites, you will need only three things to start - a server; a billing application, that 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 online transactions. While there're ready-made reseller programs out there, the usage of your own server will provide you with further control over the software environment. To be able to install server-side software, for example, will give you a benefit over the competition and means many more pleased clients. With a standard reseller program, the accounts are created on a shared server, therefore no software can be installed and, for that reason, some websites may not operate properly. Running your own reseller business will give you the opportunity to generate income, while you may still use the server for your individual sites too.
