When you buy a website hosting server with the idea to start your very own hosting company and to resell plans to other people, you may also need to sell domains, to give your clients the opportunity to buy everything they want for their new website from a single place. To be a certified registrar involves thousands of dollars and tons of documentation, so the easiest solution would be to register for a domain name reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller Internet site will be connected to that account via the registrar's API. Using such an account has various benefits - your customers can get and to take care of new website names with ease; the price of a new registration is lower compared to what you'd need to spend as an end customer; and you are able to start reselling right away. The registrar companies which supply domain reseller accounts often need an amount of money as a deposit.
