    Since when did we need a poll for a FACT?
    Co-Founder @HostHideout. Profoundly influenced by #Bauhaus, @Nameslave unrepentantly embraces #Minimalism with a bias for functionality, color theory and pixel precision: a #multimedia messenger in the McLuhan sense. His totally irrelevant M.Ed. dissertation examines Organizational Culture and Change Management. He also likes Patrik Ervell, Wong Kar-wai and IKEA.

    To my knowledge WWD and Godaddy are owned by the same individual as is Blue Razor Domains.

    Depends on how you define "main". It has certainly the most public exposure.

    Both are the same company. While Godaddy is into domains, shared hosting, email hosting, VPS, Dedicated servers, SSL certificates etc., all targeted at end users, Wild West Domains is a reseller only company. So it is similar to what ResellerClub and Answerable.com are.

    Different business, different organization, you need to allocate resources and calculate costs, effectiveness, operational efficiency and profits differently. It's mostly a business issue. In all large organizations you have units operating completely independent of each other, with intangible "products" it's maybe easier to differentiate that way or it's just industry-specific.

    Resellers usually want branding option for their control panels and hence the reseller brand is always separated. Since resellers register domains and host websites in bulk, they need to prevent their customers from knowing from which company they are buying domains and hosting and want them to know the reseller is the direct provider. Reseller Brands are normally customizable and the customer brand of the companies is also a reseller brand in real.
