If you acquire a web hosting server with the intent to start your personal web hosting company and to resell plans to other people, you may as well need to sell domain names, so that you can give your customers the opportunity to acquire everything they want for their new Internet site from a single place. Being an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars as well as a considerable amount of documentation, so the easiest solution is to register for a domain name reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller site will be linked to that account through the registrar's API. Using such an account has many different advantages - all of your customers can obtain and to control new domains comfortably; the price of a brand new registration is lower when compared to what you would need to spend as an end customer; also you'll be able to start reselling right away. The registrar businesses which provide domain reseller accounts generally require some money as a deposit.
