When you buy a server with the intention to start your own web hosting company and to resell packages to various other people, you may as well need to sell domains, to give your customers the option to purchase everything they need for their new site from just a single place. To become an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars and a considerable amount of documentation, so the most convenient solution is to sign up for a domain reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller Internet site will be linked to that account through the registrar's API. Employing this kind of account has a lot of pros - all your customers are able to buy and to manage new domain names with ease; the price for a new registration will be lower when compared to what you'd need to spend as an end customer; and you'll be able to start reselling instantly. The registrar companies which sell domain reseller accounts generally require some money as a deposit.
