When you get a website hosting server with the intention to start your personal hosting company and to resell plans to other people, you may also want to sell domains, in order to give your customers the option to get everything they want for their new Internet site from just a single place. Being a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars and a considerable amount of documentation, so the easiest solution would be to sign up for a domain reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller website will be connected to that account through the registrar's API. Employing this kind of account has a lot of benefits - your customers can buy and to manage new website names comfortably; the cost of a new registration is lower as compared to what you would need to spend as an end customer; also you can start reselling without delay. The registrar businesses which offer domain reseller accounts often need some money as a deposit.
