If you get a hosting server with the purpose to start your very own hosting company and to resell plans to other people, you may also wish to sell domains, in order to give your customers the option to buy everything they need for their new Internet site from a single place. Becoming a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars and a lot of documentation, so the easiest solution would be to register for a domain reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller Internet site will be connected to that account via the registrar's API. Using this type of account has many different benefits - all of your customers are able to acquire and to control new domains without difficulty; the price of a new registration will be lower as compared to what you'd have to pay as an end customer; also you'll be able to start reselling immediately. The registrar businesses that supply domain reseller accounts often ask for a certain amount of money as a deposit.
