When you obtain a server with the intent to start your very own web hosting company and to resell plans to various other people, you may also want to sell domains, in order to give your clients the opportunity to get everything they need for their new site from just a single place. To be a certified registrar involves thousands of dollars along with a considerable amount of documentation, so the easiest solution would be to sign up for a domain name reseller account with an existing registrar company. Your reseller website will be linked to that account via the registrar's API. To use this kind of account has many different benefits - all your customers can obtain and to take care of new domains with ease; the price of a brand new registration is lower compared to what you'd need to spend as an end customer; also you'll be able to start reselling at once. The registrar businesses which sell domain reseller accounts generally want some money as a deposit.
