You can offer domain registration on your own if you want to. You can resell domains. A good place to check would be Enom.Originally posted by Gman243
I'm just a bit confused. I know the general function and everything...or maybe I don't. What I get is the cpanel and everything (whm) where I make packages, set prices on my site, someone buys from me, I give them the package I made with WHM and it takes that amount of space and bandwidth away from what I pay for my reseller account. If you understood that, great!
What i'm confused about is domains.
~ How do they work? ~
o How would I offer domain names on my website...or can I?
o What are name servers?
o What address is the persons website at when I give them the package?
o Do I need a seperate IP for each one?
o Do my clients have to have a domain before I give them an account and how would I transfer one?
These are just general questions before I actually purchase a reseller account. I want to know how to do something before I pay for it.
Nameservers are a way to point your domain to a server. An example NS would be like NS1.YOURDOMAIN.COM, NS2.YOURDOMAIN.COM. You can register your own if your host gives you your own IPs.
You need your own IPs if you want to have your own nameservers.
Your clients don't need a domain when they sign up. Usually they can register it later from another registrar.
Hope this helps,
The client tells you what domain he wants his site at. If you give your clients an IP they can just visit their site VIA the IP.
