How a Domain Reseller can Register Domains for Themselves
Article Details

Last Updated

This article explains how a reseller can register a domain for themselves.  The first thing to cover is that all domains need to be associated with a customer level account, so if you don’t have your own customer account you will need to create one. You can create your customer account my logging into your domain reseller account and navigating to Customers >> Add.

Now that you have a customer account for yourself, you can get started on registering the domain.  First you must log into your domain reseller account and Navigate to Products >> Domain Registration >> Check Availability.

This will bring up a new window; this window is your SuperSite where you customers will go to register domains. On this page you are going to see the prices that you have set for your Customer account clients. When you register the domains from here your reseller account will be billed the normal reseller cost. On this page you should see that you are logged in as the reseller in the upper left of your page. Lower on the page, in the main body, you will see that you can enter the domain that you want to register. Enter the domain or domains and then click the green “Search for Domains Name(s)” button.

At that point the system will check to make sure the domain is available. If the domain is available it will display a green “Add” button next to the domain. If the domain is not available you will see a gray “Taken” instead. This screen will also show you other available domains similar to the one you searched for. Select the number of years you would like to register your domain or domains for, and click the “Add” button. When you are finished adding domains you can click on the blue “Go to Cart” button.

On this new page you will be asked for the username of the customer account that you want to put this domain under.  Here you will need to enter the username (email address) for the customer account you have created.  Then click the blue “Place your order” button.

You will now be taken to you shopping cart. Here you can click on the icons next to your domain name if you wish to change the domain contact information, name servers, and privacy protection settings.

If you scroll down on this same page you will see you have different options upon processing the order(s). Because you are logged in as the reseller, you will have 3 processing options to choose from.  In this case (because you are registering the domain for yourself) you will use the option to “Activate Order(s) - Don't create Customer's Invoice(s)”. This way the customer level account will not have to pay the reseller account for the order(s).  If you were registering domains for a customer that is going to pay you at a later time for the domains you would use the “Activate Order(s) - Customers can pay Invoice(s) later” option.  Once you have selected the option you want click the blue “Process Order(s)” button.

The domain(s) are registered now. You can go back to your reseller control panel and see the domains listed in your account.  The easiest way to see the domain is Navigate to Products >> List All Orders and you will see the newly registered domain(s) in that list.
