When you get a hosting server with the intent to start your very own hosting company and to resell packages to various other people, you may as well wish to sell domains, in order to give your clients the opportunity to buy everything they want 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 easiest solution is to register for a domain name reseller account with an existing registrar company. Your reseller site will be linked to that account by using the registrar's API. To use such an account has numerous pros - your customers will be able to acquire and to control new domain names effortlessly; the price for a new registration will be lower as compared to what you'd need to pay as an end customer; and you're able to start reselling immediately. The registrar businesses that supply domain reseller accounts usually require some money as a deposit.
