When you get a website hosting server with the purpose to start your personal website hosting company and to resell packages to various other people, you may also wish to sell domains, to give your clients the chance to get everything they want for their new Internet site from a single place. Becoming a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars and a considerable amount of documentation, so the most effective solution would be to sign up for a domain name reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller site will be linked to that account via the registrar's API. Using such an account has more than a few benefits - all your customers will be able to buy and to control new domain names effortlessly; the price for a brand new registration is lower compared to what you would need to pay as an end customer; what's more you can start reselling immediately. The registrar businesses which sell domain reseller accounts generally need a certain amount of money as a deposit.
