Hi,

What is the cost of .coms that you get from your provider ?
Is it worth becoming a REGISTRAR if you have 1000 domains ?

I believe to become a domain regsitrar is really hard, there's a certain terms, conditions and rules which your company need to pass.

However, its been easy now to offering domain registration since there's a lot of registrar/company that offering a domain reseller account.

There's a plenty of them such as Enom, Directi, SRS(some name that I know but doesnt have any experience with them). Some of them, required you to deposit certain amount to be eligible as their reseller while the other allow it for free.

Normally, their price structure are different between but could be based on a discount percent that apply for a certain amount of sales that you bring in.

Try look at their respective site to see the cost.

namecheap is free but I believe you have to sign some agreements and such. I have only resold a few, so do not know much about it, I haven't even done it in probably a year plus.

It wouldn't be worth it to become a register if you had 1,000 domains. You'd have to be a big player in the domain business like a Godaddy or Namecheap for it to be worth it.

$3,500 non-refundable application fee.
$4,000 yearly accreditation fee
$70,000 proof of operating liquid capital
$500,000 insurance

Plus each individual gTLD operator has its separate fees it charges for services.

No, it would not be worth going through all of the procedures to just register 1000 domains by yourself. I would recommend getting a good reseller account instead.

HAHAHAHA. WOW. After seeing those prices, I'd have to agree that it's not worth it.

Nope, it's not worth becoming a registrar if you have 1000+ domains. Maybe if you have 100,000+... At 1k, you might just wanna keep to reselling.

According to me, it's not that easy to become domain name registrar with having 1000 domains under your account. You need to have big amount to become domain name registrar.

When I've started my hosting business 4 years ago, at first, I take a decision to become a domain register. After then, I surprised to see there (ICANN) rules & regulations, price list etc etc... So I cut the idea from my head.
Now I think, hosting business is best for me. Because its not so much and also good profitable business.

Shared my experience. Hope that will be helpful for someone. Thanks.

As long as you complete the forms correctly and pay the fees you can become a registrar

Maybe in the beginning of that craze. It's near impossible now. The costs are way to prohibitive and its difficult to gain market share in a marketplace dominated by registrars willing to sell their domains below cost.

Stick with wholesaler.

I don't think there is a minimum but I don't think at 1000 domains is worth it.

There was a company (forgot the name) that assisted companies in becoming ICANN accredited. They did some big names such as HostGator etc and from what I can recall, they recommend having a minimum of 10,000 domains under management.

You have to look at the costs against your domain renewal revenue to determine if it will be worth it or not. Not only the application / ongoing ICANN fees but also profit per TLD etc.

As for a list of prices per TLD, this differs on the registrar but Verisign who manages .com and .net charges: $7.85 per year.
