If you obtain a web hosting server with the purpose to start your very own website hosting company and to resell packages to other people, you may also need to sell domains, so as to give your clients the opportunity to buy everything they need for their new website from just a single place. To become a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars as well as a lot of documentation, so the most convenient solution is to sign up for a domain name reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller site will be linked to that account by using the registrar's API. To use this kind of account has numerous advantages - all of your customers can buy and to manage new domain names comfortably; the price for a brand new registration will be lower compared to what you'd have to pay as an end customer; what's more you'll be able to start reselling immediately. The registrar businesses which provide domain reseller accounts in most cases need an amount of money as a deposit.
