Hi there. We are just setting up a domain name sales site. Currently we use bulkregister for the registration of our domains, but I do have an issue that when it comes to renewal time, they send out emails to all the registered owners of the domains to tell them to come to bulkregister to renew. For this reason (and also to do some due-diligence) I'm having a look around to see what people think about these ICANN registered providers. Here's what I'm wondering:
1. Which provider gives the best system to integrate? I'm looking to use my own html pages and payment systems but use back-end scripts to do the registration. I also want to register .co.uk through the UKs Nominet as well as the usual .com, .nets etc...
2. I want a provider that will not contact my own clients
3. Pricing - obviously pricing is an issue, but not the most major one. Bulkregister charge from $12 down to $10, so I'm obviously looking some something better than this.
I still keep my BR account especialy for main name servers, but now use enom with DRAM - works fine. Enom does contact your customers for renewl reminders - but only if you click that option from your control panel. eNom does not offer .UK domain - but you might ask their sales if they have it in the works.
