Becoming an accredited registrar involves thousands of dollars along with a considerable amount of documentation, so the most convenient solution would be to sign up for a domain name reseller account with an existing registrar company. Your reseller Internet site will be linked to that account via the registrar's API. Using such an account has a variety of advantages - your customers can obtain and to manage new domain names without any difficulty; the price for a new registration is lower when compared to what you'd need to pay as an end customer; also you can start reselling without delay. The registrar businesses which sell domain reseller accounts often require some money as a deposit.
