    Hello,
    I currently use the dotster reseller program to sell and transfer in top level domains.
    I am unhappy with the system because domains are not registered directly from my site.

    I am looking for a solution that will integrate domain reg with modernbill
    Any suggestions

    Regards
    Brendan

    Try using Tucows. they have a VERY good program.

    http://www.opensrs.org

    you have to keep a deposit on file, if you run out of funds, all ordes are denied. But they have a way you can automatically add funds to your account, AFTER you make 3 payments, that way if their is a emergency.

    Look into it. Good program. Not as cheap as Go Daddy, but better software I think.

    HTH,

    Thanks Poerhouse.

    Is openSRS a remotely hosted system or can registrations be done directly from your site,

    The reason i ask is because i need the details of registrations to be entered into a database automatically.

    Regards

    Actually YES and NO.

    You run all the scripts from YOUR site. It actually registers it FROM YOUR SITE, BUT the call that registers it is a &CALL& to their servers.

    It just returns a Yes or No, then you can write it to the database in the YES or NOT do so if it's Rejected.

    It works VERY well.

    If you want to see it in action, you can look at ours, at
    http://register.firstratehosting.com

    I have NO problems with them at all!
    sounds like the one you where using was Go Daddy, they run all theirs on their site, your more like an affiliate with them, except you can customize the layout a little bit. I can always tell when someone is using Go Daddy cause they all look alike. I don't like their site. Prices are decent for the .com, .net, and .org.

    OpenSRS blows them away on the .biz and .info (.us too)

    I'd prefer to run them myself so I can completely customize the look and feel, functions too. Plus .com is kinda dying. Not really but geeze, their are not that many GREAT names left in .com .biz however is rocking, and has tons of GREAT names available.

    Anyways, I'm working on a Demo version where people can demo the registration before they use our system, that way they can see how EASY it is to register with us.

    Basically in a NUTSHELL, you are an &Affiliate& of OpenSRS, but you have a LOT more control. More like a reseller, and you get a pretty distinct name, RSP which is Registration Service Provider.
    You cannot say your &ICANN Accredited& but you CAN say &In Association with an ICANN Accredited Registrar&, and there are even a few banners floating around that you can get that say such.

    HTH!

    Wow, they are pretty cheap. Let us know how it goes, how the service is, and how the support is.

    They don't make much money on each domain, so I don't know how they can handle a huge amount of support. From what I understand, the .com, .net, and .org price is 6.00 each, then they can sell them for what they want, so at their price, they would only make about 2.00 each, not much at all.

    I may be wrong, but I've seen that in more than one place, (the price registrars pay), so I don't know for sure.

    If their prices are that low, and they have GOOD service, plus allow scripts like OpenSRS, then let us know, in particular let me know at powerhouse@servicenterprises.com so I can start registering through them.

    Thanks!
