If you acquire a hosting server with the intention to start your own web hosting company and to resell packages to various other people, you may also want to sell domains, so that you can give your customers the chance to buy everything they need for their new Internet site from one place. To become a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars and tons of documentation, so the simplest solution is to sign up for a domain name reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller site will be connected to that account through the registrar's API. Employing this kind of account has a variety of advantages - all of your customers are able to purchase and to control new website names without any difficulty; the cost of a new registration is lower compared to what you would need to spend as an end customer; what's more you are able to start reselling without delay. The registrar businesses that sell domain reseller accounts in most cases require a certain amount of money as a deposit.
