When you get a website hosting server with the idea to start your individual web hosting company and to resell packages to various other people, you may as well need to sell domains, to give your customers the chance to acquire everything they need for their new site from one place. Being a certified registrar involves thousands of dollars and tons of documentation, so the most convenient solution is to sign up for a domain name reseller account with an existing registrar company. Your reseller Internet site will be linked to that account by using the registrar's API. To use this kind of account has a lot of pros - your customers will be able to get and to take care of new domain names effortlessly; the price for a new registration is lower when compared to what you'd have to spend as an end customer; and you are able to start reselling at once. The registrar businesses that supply domain reseller accounts almost always require an amount of money as a deposit.
