If you get a website hosting server with the purpose to start your very own web hosting company and to resell plans to various other people, you may also want to sell domain names, to give your clients the chance to get everything they need for their new Internet site from one place. Becoming a certified registrar involves thousands of dollars along with a considerable amount of documentation, so the simplest solution would be to sign up for a domain reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller website will be connected to that account by using the registrar's API. To use this kind of account has many different benefits - your customers will be able to obtain and to take care of new domain names without difficulty; the price of a new registration will be lower as compared to what you would have to pay as an end customer; what's more you can start reselling at once. The registrar companies which sell domain reseller accounts usually want an amount of money as a deposit.
