When you buy a website hosting server with the intention to start your own web hosting company and to resell packages to various people, you may also wish to sell domain names, so as to give your clients the opportunity to purchase everything they need for their new site from one place. Becoming an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars and a lot of documentation, so the most effective solution is to sign up for a domain name reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller website will be linked to that account by using the registrar's API. Employing this kind of account has a variety of benefits - all of your customers are able to get and to control new website names without any difficulty; the cost of a brand new registration will be lower as compared to what you would have to pay as an end customer; also you can start reselling right away. The registrar businesses which sell domain reseller accounts almost always need an amount of money as a deposit.
