    UK Domain Name Reselling

    I am looking into Reselling domains in the UK. I currently use Fasthosts, but just have a normal account that I then register clients domains on, rather than an actual resellers account.

    I have been looking into getting a WHMCS license and if I buy it from LicensePal, they offer a free eNom reseller account but I was just wondering if there was anyone in the UK that would be better as most domains are .UK.

    Thanks in advance.

    NetEarthOne are much cheaper for .uk domains than Enom, it also integrates with WHMCS nicely.

    What type of domains are you thinking of selling?

    If you are going to sell .uk domains then the way forward would be to become a registrar with Nominet (the registry). You pay a joining fee (it was GBP 400 when we joined) and an annual fee (GBP 100) and then you can register direct with the registry. It won't actually save you a lot of money (as the Fasthosts and 123Regs of this world are all selling .uk at not much above cost) but it puts you in control.

    As for other domains - we use Total Registrations because they are in the UK which makes them more accessible than someone the other side of the world (everything we do with them is under UK law and covered by the UK legal system)... but if you're not fussed about what country's laws you are dealing under then there are plenty of other companies to choose from.

    Thanks for your comment. I don't have the kind of money to become a registrar (yet anyway) and it seems overkill for what I'm looking for.

    As long as I can sell domains and have them setup on my server, I'm happy

    Thanks, I have just registered for a reseller account with NetEarthOne so will see how that goes. A little unsure about their payment method (having to preload the funds) but will see how it goes

    You have to preload funds with any reseller. I'm sure you'll like the great chat & email support from NetEarthOne.

    NetEarthOne has the advantage of having no minimum refill, whereas Enom have a $100 minimum.

    If your activity is fairly low, just throw $20 in there and keep an eye on it.

    Thanks, it does sound good, especially the low cost of the domains. Might transfer all my current client domains to their so they're all in one place
