Re: domain registra question

Although Eric is correct that you can become an ICANN accredited
registrar, that's probably not what you want to do.

Many registrars have reseller programs which allow you to sell
domain registrations that are actually handled by the registrar
whose service you are reselling.  If you just want to let your
customers register the domains they use in their hosted web sites,
that's much, much easier.

I resell Tucows (www.opensrs.com) and am happy with them, but you
should look at several large registrars and choose the one that
best meets your needs.
