When you get a web hosting server with the idea to start your very own hosting company and to resell packages to various other people, you may also wish to sell domain names, to give your customers the option to purchase everything they want for their new Internet site from a single place. Being a certified registrar involves thousands of dollars plus a considerable amount of documentation, so the most effective solution is to register for a domain name reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller site will be linked to that account via the registrar's API. Employing this type of account has more than a few pros - all of your customers are able to obtain and to manage new domains with ease; the price of a new registration is lower compared to what you'd need to spend as an end customer; also you're able to start reselling instantly. The registrar companies that supply domain reseller accounts usually need an amount of money as a deposit.
