Being a certified registrar involves thousands of dollars as well as tons of documentation, so the most effective solution would be to register for a domain reseller account with an existing registrar company. Your reseller website will be connected to that account via the registrar's API. To use such an account has more than a few advantages - all your customers can acquire and to manage new domain names effortlessly; the price of a brand new registration is lower compared to what you would need to pay as an end customer; and you are able to start reselling instantly. The registrar businesses which sell domain reseller accounts usually ask for an amount of money as a deposit.
