When you obtain a web hosting server with the idea to start your personal hosting company and to resell plans to various other people, you may also want to sell domains, in order to give your clients the option to get everything they want for their new site from a single place. To be an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars and tons of documentation, so the most convenient solution would be to register for a domain reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller website will be connected to that account by using the registrar's API. Using such an account has numerous benefits - your customers are able to obtain and to control new website names with ease; the cost of a brand new registration will be lower as compared to what you'd need to spend as an end customer; and you can start reselling at once. The registrar businesses that provide domain reseller accounts in most cases require a certain amount of money as a deposit.
