If you acquire a web hosting server with the intention to start your very own hosting company and to resell packages to various people, you may as well need to sell domain names, in order to give your clients the opportunity to obtain everything they want for their new Internet site from one place. To be a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars as well as a considerable amount of documentation, so the most convenient solution would be to register for a domain name reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller website will be linked to that account via the registrar's API. Using such an account has lots of benefits - all of your customers will be able to acquire and to take care of new domain names with ease; the cost of a new registration will be lower compared to what you'd have to spend as an end customer; what's more you are able to start reselling right away. The registrar companies that sell domain reseller accounts generally want an amount of money as a deposit.
