When you have your own hosting server, virtual or dedicated, you can launch your own web hosting reseller business and to earn good money in a market that keeps growing each and every year. With the increasing demand for websites, you will need only three things to start - a server; a billing application, which is the connection between your e-store and the hosting space; and an account with a billing processor, which will allow you to accept online transactions. Since there are ready-made reseller applications out there, the use of your own server provides you with further control over the software environment. The ability to set up server-side software, for example, gives you a benefit over rivals and will mean even more pleased customers. With a standard reseller program, the accounts are set up on a shared server, therefore no software can be installed and, as a result, some websites may not operate efficiently. Running your own reseller business will provide you with the opportunity to generate a profit, while you can still use the server for your individual sites as well.
