When you buy a server with the intention to start your own website hosting company and to resell packages to various people, you may also need to sell domains, to give your clients the chance to obtain everything they need for their new Internet site from a single place. Being a certified registrar involves thousands of dollars along with tons of documentation, so the most effective solution is to sign up for a domain reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller site will be connected to that account by using the registrar's API. Employing such an account has a variety of pros - all your customers are able to obtain and to take care of new domains without difficulty; the cost of a brand new registration will be lower when compared to what you would have to spend as an end customer; last but not least you'll be able to start reselling at once. The registrar businesses which provide domain reseller accounts almost always want a certain amount of money as a deposit.
