If you purchase a web hosting server with the intention to start your personal web hosting company and to resell packages to various other people, you may as well wish to sell domains, in order to give your clients the opportunity to acquire everything they need for their new Internet site from one place. To be an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars and a lot of documentation, so the most convenient solution would be to sign up for a domain name reseller account with a pre-existing registrar company. Your reseller site will be connected to that account through the registrar's API. Using this kind of account has many different benefits - all of your customers are able to acquire and to control new domains effortlessly; the cost of a new registration will be lower compared to what you would need to pay as an end customer; also you can start reselling without delay. The registrar companies that provide domain reseller accounts in most cases want some money as a deposit.
