If you get a virtual or a dedicated server, you can use it not only to host your sites, but, in addition to resell hosting plans to various other people. This will help you make good money, due to the fact that the number of people who build their first website keeps increasing and the need for website hosting services is growing year after year. Apart from the server itself, you'll also need a merchant account with a payment processor, that will enable you to accept payment transactions online, as well as a payment app so as to link the two of them. To use your own server means having more control as opposed to the standard hosting reseller programs. If, for instance, a client needs to run some script which needs a specific application to be present on the server, there won't be a trouble to set it up on a virtual or a dedicated machine, but it's not possible to do that on a shared server where all reseller accounts are set up. With small effort and investment, you will have the chance to start a successful hosting company on your own and to be a part of the ever expanding hosting market.
