When you obtain a hosting server with the idea to start your individual hosting company and to resell plans to various people, you may as well want to sell domains, so as to give your customers the chance to acquire everything they want for their new site from one place. To be an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars plus a considerable amount of documentation, so the simplest solution would be to register for a domain name reseller account with an existing registrar company. Your reseller site will be linked to that account through the registrar's API. Employing such an account has various benefits - all of your customers are able to acquire and to manage new domain names comfortably; the price of a brand new registration will be lower when compared to what you'd have to spend as an end customer; last but not least you'll be able to start reselling immediately. The registrar businesses which provide domain reseller accounts in most cases need a certain amount of money as a deposit.
