If you acquire a server with the idea to start your individual web hosting company and to resell plans to various people, you may also need to sell domains, so that you can give your clients the option to acquire everything they need for their new website from one place. To become a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars as well as tons of documentation, so the most convenient solution is to register for a domain reseller account with an existing registrar company. Your reseller site will be linked to that account through the registrar's API. Using this kind of account has a large number of benefits - all of your customers are able to obtain and to take care of new domains effortlessly; the price of a new registration is lower compared to what you'd need to pay as an end customer; last but not least you are able to start reselling without delay. The registrar businesses that sell domain reseller accounts generally ask for an amount of money as a deposit.
