If you acquire a web hosting server with the purpose to start your own web hosting company and to resell packages to other people, you may also wish to sell domain names, so that you can give your clients the option to purchase everything they need for their new Internet site from a single place. To be a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars and a considerable amount of documentation, so the easiest solution would be to register for a domain reseller account with an existing registrar company. Your reseller Internet site will be linked to that account via the registrar's API. Employing this kind of account has a large number of advantages - your customers will be able to purchase and to manage new domains with ease; the cost of a new registration will be lower when compared to what you would need to pay as an end customer; last but not least you will be able to start reselling right away. The registrar businesses that sell domain reseller accounts usually require an amount of money as a deposit.
