What can I do with an eNom Domain Registration Reseller account?
A: You can register many TLDs (top level domains) such as .com, .net,
.info, .eu, .ca, .de, .cc, and so forth (see above list) for discounted
pricing AND/OR offer domain registration services from your own Website
at whatever pricing you choose to. eNom offers various tools to do so,
such as Registry Rocket (free) and also an API (free) to implement this
on your own site, as well as a private label domain reseller portal called
PDQ (annual $99 fee). eNom's software tools as well as eNom's documentation
and support are indeed known to be outstanding when compared to any other
domain reseller programs!
A: eNom is a leading American domain registrar and for sure the company
with most domain name resellers world-wide. For a reason! Domains you
register with eNom come with many free extras (which, of course,
you can charge your customers for, if you like), such as free email forwarding,
free domain forwarding, free nameserver services, free domain name locking,
free domain parking, and free 1 to 10 page website.
Why not signing up directly with eNom why with you?
A: To become an eNom Technology Partner you need to deposit $6,950 first.
If you have or expect to have a high selling sales site then you should
indeed sign up directly with eNom. Our offer is mostly aimed at companies
that are small to medium, web designers, as well as individuals who just
want to register a couple of domains. VERY important: you are not in any
way dependent from us although you create your account through
us, your contract is with eNom, and once you have funds in your account
or at least one domain we are not able to delete your account, even if
we wanted to. Even if our own eNom account would be deleted, your's would
not. Also, if you become a successful domain reseller or otherwise change
your mind, then you can always transfer your account to eNom directly.
As long as you are a low to medium volume domain reseller you will have
better pricing with us than you would get from eNom directly!
What about the special pricing for Reseller Sharks reseller hosting customers?
A: Best explained with an example: Say you have
a $22 "Starter" reseller with us (20,000 MB space, 100 Gig bandwidth,
host up to
20 domains, either cPanel, Plesk,
or DirectAdmin). If you and/or your customers register 20 domains through
your new eNom account in any given billing month, we will refund you $20
towards your $22 monthly hosting fee. If you register double that many
domains, however, the maximum refund will still not be more than your
monthly hosting fee. Of course, it might then make sense to upgrade your
hosting plan to the next larger plan and get that for free. This benefit
is, of course, IN ADDITION to whatever profit you make through the registrations.
Domain pricing is completely up to you.
CONDITIONS & LIMITATIONS:
- Refunds are made monthly if at least 15 domains are registered in that
particular billing month; if less than 15 domain registrations, we will
refund the month after such number (15) was reached; there is no time
I am no Reseller Sharks reseller hosting customer, can I still sign up
for the eNom account?
A: You sure can, just that you won't get the extra benefit of a 75 cents refund
(towards your hosting fee) per registered domain.
What happens to my eNom account if I cancel my Reseller Sharks reseller
A: Nothing, other than loosing the 75 cents refund per registered domain.
How can I be sure you won't raise domain pricing once I have signed up?
A: We guarantee that we will not raise domain prices and pricing for any
add-on services unless eNom raises pricing for their ETPs. You can secure
your current pricing (so we would not be able to change it even if we
wanted to only eNom can) by creating a sub-retail account ("retail,"
not "reseller") in your account and assign the lowest possible
pricing for each domain (which is identical to your own pricing).
How can I be sure you do not delete my domains or change settings, etc.?
A: ETPs can see the domains a reseller registers (this allows us to issue
you the 75 sents refund, for example), but they cannot make changes of any sort;
only the registrant (domain owner), the direct reseller (you), and the
registrar (eNom) can.
A: The TOS
(Terms of Service agreement) states that you will be responsible for chargebacks
resulting from fraudulent registrations if using eNom's billing system.
However, as you will read in eNom's online help center, eNom presently
pays for all chargebacks (see here).
It would be up to them to change such policy. If using your own billing
sytem you will have to deal with this yourself, of course.
Can I cancel domain registrations e.g. if a typo was made or for
a fraud order?
A: Yes, the grace period is 5 days; contact eNom directly via trouble
ticket system if there is a fraud order or mistake.
How can I fund my eNom account?
A: Either by credit card, PayPal, or U.S. Check. There is a 3% processing
fee for credit card and PayPal funding; no such fees for Checks.
