If you acquire a virtual or a dedicated server, you can use it not only to host your own websites, but, in addition to resell hosting packages to various other people. This will help you make good money, as the number of people who build their first site grows and the need for website hosting services is growing every single year. Along with the server itself, you will need a merchant account with some payment processor, which will allow you to accept payments online, as well as a payment app to link each of them. To use your own server means having extra control as opposed to the traditional hosting reseller programs. If, for instance, a client has to run some script that requires a particular application to be present on the server, there will not be a problem to install it on a virtual or a dedicated machine, but it's impossible to do that on a shared server where all reseller accounts are set up. With minimum effort and investment, you have the opportunity to start a successful hosting company of your own and to be a part of the ever expanding hosting market.
