Becoming domain registrar??
#1
Ok guys and gals,
I am considering to ofer domain registration for my members after numerous requests. But I am looking as a thrid level domain registrar only. so how do I actually go about it?? Does it very complicated and the cost involved is hefty??

For example, like uni.cc , .com.ru ...etc. So that my member could register a third level domain like "member.uni.cc" something like that.

ANy guide is much appreciated. I am totally new in this area.

Nice idea! And the investment cost is:



$7~ for the domain name only Smile

It's all apache and php or can be asp development.

Apache is main concern.

I don't know if you want to become a registrar yourself. That is a pretty involved and expensive process. You might look at some of the registrars, though, that let you set up as white label resellers. You esentially re-sell the domains but it is all transparent to the customer and they think they are buying it from you directly. I think Enom offers this and some other registrars as well.

Hey guys, i just saw this post, sorry I didn't reply earlier.

Becoming a registrar is a rather long process. Since everything goes through ICANN now-a-days, you will have to apply directly to ICANN. There is an application fee of $2,500. Paying this fee does not mean that you will get accredited as a registrar, but it DOES mean that you just lost $2,500, as it is non refundable.

For the full process, check out ICANN's application form:
ICANN | Registrar Accreditation: Application


If you want to sell domains, I suggest that you just become a reseller from GoDaddy or another company. Then you have very few expenses.

Hi it's me again,

emm...seems like a heavy investment for me now. Not advisable at the moment...yet.

This is the option I am going right now. Just that one of the barrier is to get a shortest possible domain name so the sub-domain would not be too long.

Well, those 3character domain names are no longer available unless I buy it from someone ealse which would mean paying higher price of more than $10 each (in most cases the price would be much higher). In these scenario, I think the best bet for me is to do more research to get hold of a 4characters domain name...hopefully.:o

Wishing myself good luck..I need it.:p

Oh I see what you mean

It shouldnt be too hard to get this to work. Many companies do this (I remember that even back in 1998 I got my site redirected through a shorter URL by a service like this). There is probably some script out there that manages this. I would suspect that you either need your own server, a dedicated server, or a really flexable reseller hosting account in order to get this working.

If you just want to host subdomains, you are not becoming a registrar. So you don't have to pay icann in order to become one.

You obviously need to find a domain which is attractive to the user... I don't really see the appeal of yoursite.uni.cc, but I might be missing something. Why not stick to .com, it shouldnt incur more expenses..
