When you purchase a website hosting server with the idea to start your individual website hosting company and to resell plans to various people, you may as well wish to sell domain names, in order to give your customers the opportunity to purchase everything they need for their new website from one place. Being an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars as well as tons of documentation, so the most effective solution is to sign up for a domain name reseller account with an existing registrar company. Your reseller site will be linked to that account via the registrar's API. To use this type of account has many benefits - all your customers can obtain and to take care of new domain names without difficulty; the price of a brand new registration is lower as compared to what you'd have to spend as an end customer; last but not least you are able to start reselling at once. The registrar companies that offer domain reseller accounts often want a certain amount of money as a deposit.
