When you get a hosting server with the purpose to start your own hosting company and to resell plans to various other people, you may also wish to sell domains, to give your clients the option to buy everything they need for their new website from one place. To be an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars and a considerable amount of documentation, so the most convenient solution is to register for a domain reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller Internet site will be connected to that account via the registrar's API. To use this kind of account has many advantages - your customers will be able to purchase and to manage new domain names comfortably; the price for a brand new registration is lower compared to what you would have to pay as an end customer; and you can start reselling without delay. The registrar companies that provide domain reseller accounts usually need some money as a deposit.
