When you get a website hosting server with the idea to start your very own web hosting company and to resell plans to various people, you may also wish to sell domains, so that you can give your clients the opportunity to acquire everything they need for their new Internet site from a single place. To be a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars and a lot of documentation, so the easiest solution would be to register for a domain name reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller site will be linked to that account via the registrar's API. To use this type of account has a number of benefits - all your customers are able to purchase and to control new website names with ease; the cost of a brand new registration is lower as compared to what you'd need to spend as an end customer; last but not least you can start reselling without delay. The registrar companies which provide domain reseller accounts in most cases need an amount of money as a deposit.
