If you buy a website hosting server with the intent to start your individual hosting company and to resell plans to various people, you may also need to sell domain names, in order to give your customers the opportunity to get everything they need for their new Internet site from a single place. Being an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars and tons of documentation, so the easiest solution is to sign up for a domain reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller website will be connected to that account through the registrar's API. Employing such an account has many different benefits - all of your customers will be able to obtain and to control new domains effortlessly; the price of a brand new registration is lower when compared to what you would have to pay as an end customer; also you're able to start reselling at once. The registrar companies that provide domain reseller accounts generally require a certain amount of money as a deposit.
