If you obtain a server with the idea to start your own website hosting company and to resell plans to various people, you may also want to sell domains, to give your customers the option to buy everything they need for their new website from a single place. To be a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars and a considerable amount of documentation, so the simplest solution is to sign up for a domain reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller website will be linked to that account by using the registrar's API. Employing such an account has numerous benefits - all your customers will be able to acquire and to manage new website names with ease; the cost of a brand new registration is lower as compared to what you'd have to spend as an end customer; also you're able to start reselling immediately. The registrar companies that offer domain reseller accounts generally need some money as a deposit.
