When you acquire a server with the intent to start your very own website hosting company and to resell plans to various people, you may as well need to sell domain names, in order to give your customers the opportunity to acquire everything they want for their new website from just a single place. Being a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars and a lot of documentation, so the most convenient solution is to register for a domain name reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller website will be connected to that account by using the registrar's API. To use this kind of account has a lot of pros - all your customers are able to purchase and to take care of new domain names without difficulty; the price of a new registration will be lower when compared to what you'd have to spend as an end customer; what's more you'll be able to start reselling without delay. The registrar companies which sell domain reseller accounts in most cases require an amount of money as a deposit.
