When you have your own server, virtual or dedicated, you'll be able to launch your own web hosting reseller business and to earn good money in a niche that is maintaining growth each and every year. With the increasing need for websites, you'll need only 3 things to start - a server; a payment app, that will be the connection between your e-store and the website hosting space; and an account with a payment processor, that will allow you to accept online financial transactions. Since there're ready-made reseller applications available, the use of your own server will give you better control over the software environment. To be able to install server-side software, for example, will give you an advantage over the competition and means more happy customers. Using a standard reseller program, the accounts are created on a shared server, so no software can be installed and, as a result, some websites may not function effectively. Having your own reseller business provides you with the opportunity to generate income, while you may still use the server for your own Internet sites too.
