When you buy a web hosting server with the purpose to start your very own website hosting company and to resell packages to various other people, you may also wish to sell domain names, so that you can give your clients the chance to purchase everything they want for their new site from just a single place. To be a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars and a considerable amount of documentation, so the most effective solution is to sign up for a domain reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller Internet site will be connected to that account through the registrar's API. Using such an account has more than a few advantages - all your customers can get and to manage new domains without any difficulty; the cost of a new registration will be lower when compared to what you'd need to spend as an end customer; and you will be able to start reselling without delay. The registrar businesses that offer domain reseller accounts usually ask for a certain amount of money as a deposit.
