If you get a virtual or a dedicated server, you can use it not just to host your websites, but also to resell hosting packages to various other people. This will allow you to make good money, as the number of people who build their first website keeps growing and the need for hosting services is growing every year. Other than the server itself, you will need a merchant account with some payment processor, which will enable you to accept payments online, as well as a payment application so as to link each of them. Using your own server means to have more control when compared to the regular web hosting reseller programs. If, for instance, a customer wishes to run some script which needs a specific application to be present on the server, there won't be any trouble to set it up on a virtual or a dedicated machine, but it is not possible to do that on a shared server where all reseller accounts are set up. With small effort and investment, you'll have the chance to start a successful hosting company of yours and to become a part of the ever expanding web hosting market.
