The company I work for is a Tucows reseller with approximately 260 .com and .net domains registered for our own use. We're ready to quit paying the $10.10 per registration year for these domains and find something cheaper. Who would be a good registrar to move these domains to?
A couple of must haves:
[list=1][*] Must have a good domain management web interface.[*] Must make transfers away easy, without having to jump through hoops.[*] Must NOT be GoDaddy or a WildWest reseller.[*] Must not require prepayment. Only payment via credit card at time of renewal.[/list=1]
This can either be a reseller account or retail. If a reseller account, then like it says above, they must not require prepayment, as Tucows now requires.
Originally posted by dmaven I have 6000+ names at RegisterFly and have the best interface for bulk management I have ever seen. If you are luck you can get a $5.50 transfer code and transfer your names to them at that price
Thanks. Are you a RegisterFly reseller? If so, why not just become an eNom reseller instead?
That's kinda funny that you'd recommend them because I have a personal domain through RegisterFly. I like them just fine, except that their management site can be pretty slow sometimes.
Originally posted by dmaven I am an enom ETP as well. I get the same pricing as an enom ETP but I prefer the domain management interface. The bulk tools, sub-users , reporting and security tools are the best I have used.
So are the 6000 domains you mentioned your own plust those you've resold through RegisterFly?
I've found the reseller page at RegisterFly but can't for the life of me find any pricing info. Do you have a link by any chance?
Did RegiterFly ever become an accredited registrar or are they still only an eNom reseller?

I do not really resell domains through them. Maybe 500 names I manage for other people. The rest are names I earn money via traffic(and other means
From what I understand based on some discussion I had last month, RegisterFly already owns an icann accredited registrar and they were supposed to close on a second purchase in June. What happens to the relationship with enom I have not a clue.

Can you easily do bulk changes to domain registration info?
Say I wanted to change the email address of the Tech contact for all 260 of our domains. Or change nameservers for all domains at the same time.
YES, select any domain name you wish to make a change to. Change the nameservers or contact info, check the GLOBAL box at the bottom (apply this change to all of my domains).
All of your domain names will be updated with that info. It processes pretty fast. A bulk advanced setting request only takes about 40 minutes for all 6000+ of my domains
Can you easily do bulk renewals?
Yes, you just select the domain names to renew in bulk and add to your cart. They also support auto-renewals of domains. You just specify the domain names to renew. I have renewed 500-700 names at once.
Renew 23 domains or 100 or all 260 domains at once.
