When you buy a web hosting server with the intention to start your very own website hosting company and to resell plans to various other people, you may also need to sell domain names, to give your clients the option to get everything they want for their new website from a single place. Becoming an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars plus a considerable amount of documentation, so the easiest solution would be to sign up for a domain name reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller site will be connected to that account by using the registrar's API. Using this kind of account has more than a few advantages - all of your customers are able to acquire and to take care of new website names with ease; the price for a brand new registration is lower when compared to what you would need to spend as an end customer; last but not least you're able to start reselling immediately. The registrar businesses which provide domain reseller accounts often want an amount of money as a deposit.
