Buying Domain Names for Resellers Made Easy

If you are interested in registering domain names as a reseller, you are in great luck. Due to overwhelming demand from our reseller clients, we have added a new feature to our domain name registration system today: the ability to purchase a domain name under ownership details other than those of your own main account.

Ok so we know it isn’t the coolest, sexiest feature in the world, but we do know a lot of customers require this on a regular basis.  Web designers, resellers, domain speculators or simply anyone who has ever helped friend setup a web presence benefits from this feature.

All you need to do is search for your domain name in the regular manner via:

Once you have confirmed your domain name is available, select the ‘basket’ button to add the domain to your order.  On the following screen you should now see the ‘customise domain registration details’ button directly under your domain name order.  By selecting this a further screen will load up that will allow you to specify unique ownership details for the domain name.  These details will then appear on the WHOIS lookup for the domain name, and will serve as the legal ownership data.  (Note: the customization screen also offers our WHOIS opt-out feature too, for non uk domains).

We have plenty more updates and features that we hope to roll out over the rest of this year, but as ever, please do get in touch if you find there is a feature you require, that we do not presently offer.

Happy domain hunting!

    I was actually chatting to a client earlier this morning about this – he asked me to register two domains for him, yet from past experience I find it’s best for the client to do this.

    This should solve that problem! Perfect timing 🙂

    it may seem like a small update but this will make a big difference and save so much time.

    Having to change ownership details post registration via the Nominet control panel was a bit of a pain. This will also make clients happier when they see their own name instead of mine on the WHOIS after I buy their domain.

    This is a terrific feature. I don’t do enough business to become a reseller; I’ve had to tell a couple of clients that they have to register their domain name themselves, and both times had to guide them through he procedure.
    This makes things easier for me.

    This is great.

    Who gets the reminders when the domain is up for renewal?

    All this affects are the WHOIS/ownership details of the domain. Renewal notices will still go to the email address the domain is under (what you use to login to our site with).

    This is very helpful for helping clients to register a domain in their own name. Good work, Thanks.
