When you acquire a web hosting server with the idea to start your very own website hosting company and to resell packages to other people, you may as well need to sell domain names, to give your clients the option to purchase everything they want for their new Internet site from a single place. Becoming a certified registrar involves thousands of dollars along with tons of documentation, so the simplest solution is to register for a domain reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller site will be connected to that account via the registrar's API. Employing such an account has a number of benefits - all your customers will be able to obtain and to manage new website names comfortably; the cost of a new registration is lower when compared to what you would need to pay as an end customer; and you will be able to start reselling immediately. The registrar companies that provide domain reseller accounts usually need an amount of money as a deposit.
