So with enoms new price increase are they still the way to go for resellers or is godaddy the better option? Yes Enom may still be fairly cheap but if you can't afford the $500 dollar account and have to be a reseller it now makes it impossible to compete with the likes of godaddy etc who sell to normal users at $9.00 or less so what other options are there
Yes but by the time you have added your markup to cover merchant costs and a little profit you can't compete with godday or a few others anymore, which most people tend to know about nowadays even if there are some who still pay $15.00 or more
Yes I am but just saying for a lot of people the $500 entry fee is a big layout so would you be better off getting a reseller account from godaddy/wildwest and then under cut them by a few cents,
Not trying to have an argument here (not implying you are causing one) just after peoples opinions on what they consider to now be the better option ie is enom going to start losing clients/resellers to godaddy etc
resellers selling other resellers accounts never has been too good for profit.. often more hassle than its worth.
Most people which do it are in for a quick $10 setup and dont care about the monthly commission.
Enom have done the right thing changing to this new policy as it will stop the market being flooded with cheap reseller accounts and allow the companies who payed to be level 1 resellers to start turning some profit again.
Competition brings prices down though doesn't it, I agree with you though looks like the only way to go if you want to sell domain names is be a direct reseller and not an enom sellers reseller, just the high charge enom makes to do it compared to godaddy etc
