If you acquire a hosting server with the intent to start your own web hosting company and to resell plans to other people, you may as well wish to sell domain names, so that you can give your clients the opportunity to purchase everything they need for their new Internet site from just a single place. Becoming an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars and a lot of documentation, so the most convenient solution would be to register for a domain reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller website will be linked to that account by using the registrar's API. To use this kind of account has a number of advantages - all of your customers can purchase and to take care of new website names comfortably; the price for a brand new registration is lower when compared to what you'd have to pay as an end customer; and you are able to start reselling right away. The registrar companies that sell domain reseller accounts in most cases want an amount of money as a deposit.
