I have my first hosting client and need some help. She's a friend of mine from high school. I need to know how I go about setting up the domain name for her site. I know there are companies out there that I can set-up an account with. But many of those want a deposit. I'm not able to commit money up front for a deposit just yet. How can I go about getting just one domain name? What's the best route?
Try to search on page search engine first, then you can compare the entire good domain name registration provider (for me, the familiar web hosts that you must compare) that you found. Because that you said, many web hosts out there provide for domain registration.
If you want to resell domains, I recommend ResellerClub. They do not require deposits, so you can pay as you go. They are the same company as WHMCS, so it's 100% compatible with it. Also, if you already have WHMCS you can sign up for a ResellerClub account though their website.
Reseller club is helpful when you want domains in bulk, and still don't want to deposit amount to buy them.. but if you are thinking for just a single domain name, why not go for some normal registrar like namecheap, godaddy, domainsite etc. for the registration?
These all domain registration sites ask to pay as you buy the domain name and most of them also provide hosting too, reducing your hassle to set-up hosting account elsewhere, linking the nameservers etc.
