If you acquire a web hosting server with the idea to start your own web hosting company and to resell plans to other people, you may also wish to sell domains, so that you can give your clients the option to purchase everything they need for their new website from one place. To become an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars plus tons of documentation, so the most effective solution would be to register for a domain reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller website will be linked to that account through the registrar's API. Employing this kind of account has more than a few pros - your customers can obtain and to manage new domain names without any difficulty; the cost of a new registration is lower compared to what you'd have to pay as an end customer; also you can start reselling instantly. The registrar businesses that sell domain reseller accounts often need an amount of money as a deposit.
