how do you sell domains on your site? do you need a liscence or something? Do you get to chose your own rates? How do many different people sell domains? Is there a master database of registered domains?
You can get a reseller account from many people on these forums. People will give you an $8.95 reseller account for free, and you can sell domains at whatever price you like, but it will cost you $8.95 each domain.
You can also get $6.95 accounts, if you're prepared to pay about $300-500(give to take) for the account.
From memory I think directi.com sells them a bit cheaper, but finding an enom reseller account is usually your best bet.
Ultimately, ICANN is the domain registration "authority" that grants registration to allow domain registrars to directly sell domain names. There are certain financial and other requirements and I think there is still some license fee paid to NetSol but my info is a little dated on this.
Usually, it is more cost effective to just become a domain reseller unless you are wanting to focus on domains as your core business and grow it in a big way.
