If you buy a website hosting server with the intention to start your very own web hosting company and to resell plans to various people, you may also wish to sell domain names, to give your customers the chance to buy everything they want for their new Internet site from just a single place. Being a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars along with tons of documentation, so the most convenient solution is to sign up for a domain name reseller account with an existing registrar company. Your reseller site will be connected to that account through the registrar's API. Employing such an account has numerous pros - your customers will be able to get and to manage new website names without difficulty; the price for a brand new registration will be lower when compared to what you would need to pay as an end customer; and you will be able to start reselling immediately. The registrar businesses which offer domain reseller accounts in most cases ask for an amount of money as a deposit.
