When you get a web hosting server with the idea to start your very own website hosting company and to resell packages to other people, you may also need to sell domain names, so that you can give your clients the option to purchase everything they want for their new site from just a single place. Being a certified registrar involves thousands of dollars and a lot of documentation, so the most effective solution would be to register for a domain name reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller site will be linked to that account via the registrar's API. Employing this kind of account has numerous pros - your customers can purchase and to control new website names with ease; the price of a new registration is lower compared to what you would have to spend as an end customer; last but not least you are able to start reselling at once. The registrar businesses which sell domain reseller accounts usually ask for a certain amount of money as a deposit.
