When you obtain a web hosting server with the idea to start your very own website hosting company and to resell packages to other people, you may as well wish to sell domains, in order to give your customers the opportunity to buy everything they need for their new website from one place. To become an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars and a lot of documentation, so the simplest solution would be to sign up for a domain reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller Internet site will be linked to that account by using the registrar's API. To use such an account has many different advantages - all your customers will be able to obtain and to control new website names without any difficulty; the price for a brand new registration will be lower compared to what you would need to spend as an end customer; last but not least you'll be able to start reselling instantly. The registrar businesses that supply domain reseller accounts in most cases ask for some money as a deposit.
