When you buy a web hosting server with the purpose to start your individual web hosting company and to resell packages to various other people, you may also want to sell domains, so that you can give your customers the option to buy everything they want for their new Internet site from a single place. To become a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars along with a lot of documentation, so the easiest solution would be to sign up for a domain name reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller website will be linked to that account by using the registrar's API. To use this kind of account has many advantages - all your customers will be able to purchase and to control new website names with ease; the price for a brand new registration is lower when compared to what you would need to spend as an end customer; and you're able to start reselling without delay. The registrar businesses which supply domain reseller accounts in most cases need a certain amount of money as a deposit.
