When you acquire a server with the purpose to start your own website hosting company and to resell packages to other people, you may also need to sell domains, to give your clients the chance to buy everything they want for their new website from a single place. To become an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars plus a considerable amount of documentation, so the easiest solution is to sign up for a domain reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller website will be connected to that account via the registrar's API. Employing this kind of account has a number of benefits - all of your customers can obtain and to control new domains without difficulty; the cost of a brand new registration will be lower as compared to what you would have to spend as an end customer; and you are able to start reselling without delay. The registrar businesses that provide domain reseller accounts often need a certain amount of money as a deposit.
