When you purchase a web hosting server with the intent to start your personal web hosting company and to resell plans to other people, you may as well want to sell domains, in order to give your customers the chance to purchase everything they need for their new Internet site from one place. Becoming a certified registrar involves thousands of dollars and tons of documentation, so the most convenient solution would be to register for a domain reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller Internet site will be linked to that account by using the registrar's API. To use this kind of account has more than a few pros - all your customers are able to buy and to manage new website names with ease; the price of a brand new registration is lower compared to what you would need to pay as an end customer; what's more you're able to start reselling at once. The registrar businesses that supply domain reseller accounts almost always need a certain amount of money as a deposit.
