When you get a server with the idea to start your very own website hosting company and to resell packages to various other people, you may also want to sell domains, in order to give your customers the chance to purchase everything they want for their new website from one place. Being a certified registrar involves thousands of dollars along with a considerable amount of documentation, so the most effective solution is to register for a domain reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller site will be connected to that account through the registrar's API. Using this type of account has various advantages - all your customers are able to get and to manage new website names with ease; the price of a new registration will be lower when compared to what you'd have to spend as an end customer; also you're able to start reselling immediately. The registrar businesses that offer domain reseller accounts in most cases need a certain amount of money as a deposit.
