Your reseller website will be linked to that account via the registrar's API. Employing this kind of account has a lot of pros - your customers can get and to take care of new domain names without any difficulty; the price for a new registration is lower when compared to what you would need to pay as an end customer; and you are able to start reselling instantly.
