When you obtain a hosting server with the purpose to start your own website hosting company and to resell plans to various other people, you may also need to sell domains, so as to give your clients the chance to purchase everything they want for their new site from one place. To become an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars along with a considerable amount of documentation, so the simplest solution would be to sign up for a domain reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller site will be connected to that account through the registrar's API. To use this kind of account has a number of benefits - all of your customers can purchase and to manage new domains with ease; the price of a brand new registration is lower as compared to what you would need to spend as an end customer; what's more you'll be able to start reselling without delay. The registrar businesses which supply domain reseller accounts in most cases want an amount of money as a deposit.
