If you acquire a website hosting server with the idea to start your personal hosting company and to resell plans to various other people, you may also want to sell domains, to give your clients the chance to obtain everything they want for their new site from one place. To become an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars along with tons of documentation, so the most effective solution is to sign up for a domain reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller website will be linked to that account through the registrar's API. To use this type of account has more than a few benefits - your customers will be able to get and to take care of new domains effortlessly; the cost of a new registration will be lower as compared to what you'd need to spend as an end customer; and you'll be able to start reselling immediately. The registrar businesses that sell domain reseller accounts usually want an amount of money as a deposit.
