If you obtain a website hosting server with the intention to start your own website hosting company and to resell packages to various people, you may also want to sell domains, in order to give your customers the option to acquire everything they need for their new Internet site from a single place. To be a certified registrar involves thousands of dollars along with a considerable amount of documentation, so the most convenient 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. Employing this kind of account has numerous advantages - all of your customers will be able to acquire and to take care of new domain names comfortably; the cost of a brand new registration is lower compared to what you would need to spend as an end customer; also you'll be able to start reselling instantly. The registrar companies that supply domain reseller accounts generally want a certain amount of money as a deposit.
