How are eNom resellers handing the new "name only" registration at enom.com?
Before very recently, enom only had $29.95 registrations on their site, which meant that they were not competing with their reseller channel directly at all.
Now, enom are selling $5.99 domain registrations with no access to nameservers or anything, with an option to make them full access for an additional $3.99.
I know I'm a bit thick at times, but doesn't this mean that enom are now selling their $29.95 registration package (which didn't really compete with their reseller channel) for $9.98?
Yes, I see that you have to spend $495 to get one of these accounts set up, but domain speculators do this every week. For someone with 400 domain names, this is not even a discussion point.
Doesn't this put enom in direct competition with their reseller channel now?
I've been looking hard at enom to add to my domain portfolio, but this does not bode well for the reseller / registrar relationship with them.
