If you purchase a web hosting server with the intent to start your individual hosting company and to resell packages to other people, you may also wish to sell domain names, in order to give your clients the opportunity to obtain everything they want for their new Internet site from a single place. To be a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars along with a lot of documentation, so the most effective solution would be to register for a domain name reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller Internet site will be linked to that account through the registrar's API. Employing this type of account has a large number of advantages - your customers are able to acquire and to manage new domains without difficulty; the price of a new registration is lower when compared to what you'd have to spend as an end customer; and you can start reselling right away. The registrar businesses that supply domain reseller accounts often need some money as a deposit.
