If you obtain a web hosting server with the intention to start your very own web hosting company and to resell plans to other people, you may also want to sell domains, so as to give your customers the chance to get everything they need for their new Internet site from just a single place. To become a certified registrar involves thousands of dollars plus a considerable amount of documentation, so the most effective solution is to register for a domain name reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller website will be connected to that account via the registrar's API. To use such an account has a variety of pros - all of your customers will be able to purchase and to manage new domains with ease; the cost of a new registration is lower compared to what you would need to spend as an end customer; and you're able to start reselling right away. The registrar businesses which supply domain reseller accounts often need an amount of money as a deposit.
