    You'd have to buy the domain yourself, and then just not bill the customer for it.

    So it'd be like buying a domain for yourself - you'd come along, buy it, and keep it in your account as normal. The only difference is the customer would own the domain.

    You can set this up to do automatically in whmcs under each product page. Then when the customer signs up for a domain or a transfer, it won't charge the customer and will process the domain. The fee will automatically be deducted from your reseller balance with the registrar you use. Works nicely. I offer free domains with 1 or 2 year plans only and this can also be set up in whmcs.

    Just so you know enom requires a 100$ deposit to get started, if you intend on giving out at least 12 domains then enom is worth it, but if not you may look at another option.

    yes, you can sign up with enom and buy customers domains yourself, however, you will have to perform all domain settings for these domains yourself either.

    Yeah enom is expensive and charges for privacy. There are others that are less expensive.

    Actually, you own the domain name, not the customer. Many customers think under such a scenario they own the name, but in effect you do.

    If you are registering as domain Reseller then you can have different domain accounts for each domain your client want to have and in this way they can own that domain.

    It depends on the registrant's details? Whatever the technical, admin and billing information is, it's the registrant's details that matter IMHO?

    i just a enom reseller account and i setup a domain account separate from mine for a client. The client does all the buying and control his domains by himself. That way i make a small commission per domain.

    Another cheap way to get domains is with ipower for $6.85 but that way you have to setup the dns etc yourself

    With netfirms you can also get com for $4.95 (max 5) but only for the first year

    Owning a domain name means you have control over the operations related to domain like Domain registrant's details for Technical/ admin / billing can be changed anytime if you have a domain cp access. Only a domain owner or who has its control panel access preserve the Domain transfer rights.

    Hmm, that seems about right to me However I still think that the registrant details are the sole determinant of who owns the domain. It can be managed (tech/admin/billing) by anyone, although if the registrant shows as something different, that other person *owns* the domain.
