When you purchase a web hosting server with the idea to start your personal web hosting company and to resell plans to various other people, you may also need to sell domains, in order to give your clients the option to obtain everything they want for their new Internet site from a single place. To become a certified registrar involves thousands of dollars and a lot of documentation, so the most convenient solution would be to register for a domain name reseller account with an existing registrar company. Your reseller site will be connected to that account by using the registrar's API. To use such an account has various advantages - all of your customers can get and to manage new website names without any difficulty; the price of a new registration will be lower when compared to what you would have to pay as an end customer; and you can start reselling instantly. The registrar businesses that supply domain reseller accounts almost always need a certain amount of money as a deposit.
