If you buy a hosting server with the idea to start your individual website hosting company and to resell packages to various people, you may also want to sell domains, to give your clients the opportunity to purchase everything they want for their new site from a single place. Becoming an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars and a lot of documentation, so the easiest solution is to register for a domain reseller account with an existing registrar company. Your reseller Internet site will be connected to that account via the registrar's API. Employing this kind of account has more than a few pros - your customers can purchase and to take care of new domain names without difficulty; the price of a brand new registration is lower as compared to what you'd need to pay as an end customer; what's more you are able to start reselling at once. The registrar companies that provide domain reseller accounts usually ask for a certain amount of money as a deposit.
