When you get a web hosting server with the idea to start your very own hosting company and to resell plans to other people, you may as well want to sell domains, so as to give your customers the option to purchase everything they need for their new site from a single place. To become a certified registrar involves thousands of dollars as well as a lot of documentation, so the most convenient solution would be to register for a domain reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller site will be linked to that account through the registrar's API. To use this kind of account has more than a few advantages - your customers can obtain and to manage new website names without any difficulty; the cost of a new registration is lower as compared to what you'd need to pay as an end customer; what's more you'll be able to start reselling without delay. The registrar companies that offer domain reseller accounts often ask for a certain amount of money as a deposit.
