That it does, though I'm not so sure how many here are up for that. Perhaps better to stick to the Enom/Directi reseller accounts for now, eh?

When you add up all the fees, it does carry a rather large price tag.

I think it is better to start with domain reselling.

Well i understand that it will be expensive but I am actually doing a feasibility analysis as what would be more effective for me? - being a reseller or a registrar.

Looking at the required ICANN fees, it would definitely be an obvious choice at continuing to be a Domain Reseller. Anyways, lets see.. Am still keeping my options open..

If you'll just have a few thousand domain names, being a reseller is the way to go. With this volume, you can get registrars to give you attractive pricing without any of the headaches of maintaining a relationship with ICANN.
