When you get a hosting server with the intention to start your own web hosting company and to resell plans to other people, you may also want to sell domains, in order to give your clients the chance to buy everything they want for their new Internet site from a single place. Becoming a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars as well as a considerable amount of documentation, so the easiest solution is to register for a domain reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller Internet site will be linked to that account through the registrar's API. To use this type of account has many different advantages - your customers can get and to control new domain names without difficulty; the price of a brand new registration is lower compared to what you would need to pay as an end customer; also you'll be able to start reselling at once. The registrar businesses which provide domain reseller accounts almost always require some money as a deposit.
