I also recommend OpenSRS. They are very professional, have competitive rates, and a very good domain management system.

Same here, but he/she is after a system where the customer can do it themselves.

Dotster has a reseller program at
Com, net, org domains are $12 per year, so not the cheapest out there. Free setup is nice, though.

Reliable webhosting, real easy, really affordable

As far as I know, if you want to use an automated system to register .uk domains you have to be a Nominet tag holder and have a credit account with them. This will allow and enable you to use their automated system to register .uk TLDs.

If you are after scripts to carry out WHOIS on domains, there are plenty about. Are you just looking for a simple one that will check and report upon domain availability? We have a couple, including one that we have written ourselves and used on our site in the past.

(I am assuming you are looking for a Perl script)
