If you get a hosting server with the idea to start your individual web hosting company and to resell plans to various other people, you may also need to sell domain names, so as to give your customers the opportunity to purchase everything they want for their new site from just a single place. To be an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars plus a considerable amount of documentation, so the most convenient solution is to sign up for a domain name reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller site will be connected to that account by using the registrar's API. Employing this type of account has various advantages - your customers can purchase and to manage new domain names effortlessly; the cost of a brand new registration is lower when compared to what you would need to pay as an end customer; and you can start reselling instantly. The registrar companies that offer domain reseller accounts often want an amount of money as a deposit.
