If you buy a server with the idea to start your individual web hosting company and to resell packages to other people, you may as well wish to sell domain names, to give your clients the option to get everything they want for their new site from just a single place. To become an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars and a considerable amount of documentation, so the most effective solution is to sign up for a domain name reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller website will be connected to that account via the registrar's API. To use this kind of account has a lot of benefits - all your customers are able to obtain and to take care of new domain names without difficulty; the cost of a brand new registration will be lower as compared to what you would have to pay as an end customer; also you're able to start reselling instantly. The registrar businesses that offer domain reseller accounts often require an amount of money as a deposit.
