When you get a website hosting server with the purpose to start your very own website hosting company and to resell plans to other people, you may also want to sell domain names, so that you can give your clients the chance to purchase everything they want for their new site from just a single place. To become an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars along with tons of documentation, so the simplest solution would be to register for a domain reseller account with an existing registrar company. Your reseller Internet site will be connected to that account through the registrar's API. Using this kind of account has numerous pros - all of your customers are able to obtain and to manage new domain names without difficulty; the price for a new registration is lower compared to what you would need to pay as an end customer; and you'll be able to start reselling immediately. The registrar businesses which sell domain reseller accounts almost always ask for an amount of money as a deposit.
