If you buy a server with the purpose to start your very own website hosting company and to resell plans to other people, you may also need to sell domains, to give your customers the opportunity to get everything they want for their new Internet site from a single place. Being an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars along with a considerable amount of documentation, so the simplest solution is to register for a domain reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller site will be connected to that account through the registrar's API. Using such an account has a number of benefits - your customers can get and to control new domains comfortably; the price of a brand new registration will be lower when compared to what you'd need to pay as an end customer; last but not least you'll be able to start reselling at once. The registrar businesses that offer domain reseller accounts generally need a certain amount of money as a deposit.
