    Top Domain Name Registrar, Go Daddy, Launches Reseller Program

    Scottsdale, Ariz., July 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The Go Daddy Group, Inc. has announced the launch of new and improved reseller plans for Wild West Domains, its reseller program. Dubbed ''Wild West Reloaded,'' the new plans invigorate the online presence of existing resellers, and provide new resellers the ability to positively impact their online sales quicker.

    Four major initiatives characterize Wild West's reloaded plans. First, all plans have the industry's lowest buy rates; comparisons are available at http://www.godaddy.com/gdshop/resell...t_compare.asp. Second, unlike competitor programs, Wild West resellers are not required to pre-fund accounts in order to be a reseller. Third, there is no revenue sharing -- which means resellers retain the entire profit for each and every product they sell. Fourth, the ability to generate profit is increased, because every reseller now receives a wide variety of marketing tools (a $300+ retail value), at no cost, including:

    * Free Secure SSL Certificate shows the world that transactions on reseller sites are up to 256-bit encrypted and secure;

    * Free Deluxe email account provides resellers with 5 email addresses and 1,000MB total storage;

    * Free Traffic Blazer(R), allows resellers to optimize and submit their sites to search engines like Google(R) , Yahoo!(R) and MSN(R);

    * Free WebSite Tonight(R) allows resellers to build their own custom home pages;

    * Free Express Email Marketing(TM) allows resellers to keep in contact with their customers the spam-Free and legal way, and includes ready-made templates;

    * Free Online File Folder(TM) provides secure, on-the-go access to important files from any Internet-connected computer;

    * Free Google AdWords credit helps resellers' ads appear alongside and above search results on Google.com; and

    * Free Reseller Handbook, full of practical tips and advice on site promotion and more.

    Wild West Domains has a reloaded reseller package to fit every need: Basic is $99/year; Pro is $199/yr; Super Reseller is $229/year; and the API is $249/year. Reloaded plans retain several key features of prior plans, including: a customizable website that allows resellers to be ''up and selling'' within minutes after sign-up, 24x7 support for resellers and their customers, and a 30-day money back guarantee.

    ''In the few weeks since we launched Wild West Reloaded, sales revenue for all programs has jumped dramatically, particularly for the Basic and Pro programs, which have had growth in excess of 110%,'' said Bob Parsons, president and founder of Go Daddy. ''Clearly, deploying the lowest buy rates combined with Free marketing tools was exactly what customers wanted in their reseller program.''

    Launched? I think re-lauch is more appropriate. They may be focusing on tucows/enom territory in their quest for growth

    im my loving sacrastic voice i should ask one of two questions

    um why?
    or if you just want it strait up ............ UM N-O spells no


    not to be mean or anything but i really dont like godaddys network, i think there fine for domain names cause it doesnt take much to run a registry server as far as bandwidth goes but hostings another whole entire issue and most people may like something like enom for domain reselling

    Yep.. for resellers with more than 100 domains, is cheaper use Directi. I transfer to directi from godaddy, aplus, bluerazor, dotster and other five or six registrars without problems.. and prices go lowering when billed money is more.

    Personally I wouldn't resell the service. I don't see anything special that they are offering their resellers. A whole 5 email accounts? Other companies offer API for free and have done so for years.... yet GoDaddy still wants to charge? At least it isn't a thousand dollars anymore.
