If you obtain a server with the intent to start your individual web hosting company and to resell plans to various people, you may as well want to sell domain names, to give your customers the opportunity to acquire everything they need for their new Internet site from one place. Being a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars as well as a considerable amount of documentation, so the easiest solution would be to register for a domain reseller account with an existing registrar company. Your reseller website will be connected to that account via the registrar's API. To use this kind of account has many different pros - all of your customers are able to buy and to take care of new domains comfortably; the price for a brand new registration is lower compared to what you would need to pay as an end customer; what's more you're able to start reselling without delay. The registrar companies that sell domain reseller accounts in most cases want an amount of money as a deposit.
