If you buy a hosting server with the idea to start your individual web hosting company and to resell plans to other people, you may also wish to sell domains, in order to give your clients the chance to purchase everything they need for their new Internet site from a single place. Becoming a certified registrar involves thousands of dollars plus a considerable amount of documentation, so the easiest solution is to sign up for a domain name reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller Internet site will be connected to that account via the registrar's API. Employing this type of account has numerous advantages - your customers can get and to take care of new website names comfortably; the price for a brand new registration will be lower when compared to what you'd need to spend as an end customer; what's more you're able to start reselling immediately. The registrar companies that offer domain reseller accounts almost always want some money as a deposit.
