Greetings,

This is my first post here, so let me know if this isn't appropriate. I've been developing web sites professionally for the last 10 years and I've gathered a "portfolio" of around a hundred domain names that I manage and renew, mostly for clients.

A couple years ago, I moved everything under a single GoDaddy account because they had good prices and I used renewal coupons to get some good prices and make a buck or two when charging clients. Last year, I susbscribed to GoDaddy discount club at half price so I didn't have to hunt renewal coupons every time I would renew a domain name. Now, with Discount Club at full price, it's barely worth it.

I'm now looking for other options.

So far, I think going for a reseller plan is my best long term option. I'd like to know the opinion of people in a similar position (managing domain name for clients and charging them for it). If possible, I'd like a Canadian company, or at least an option with stable CAD prices.

So far, the most popular reseller options I see are: GoDaddy, eNom, OpenSRS.

My main issue is that they want to handle the billing for me and give me a commission. I'd prefer handling the billing/payments so I can charge taxes properly. Access to an API would also be great for future development on my own.

Any thoughts, recommendations here?

Thanks
Oli

Try OpenSRS owned by Tucows. They are a Canadian company and support most domain names not restricted to ownership by a local. They also cater for SSL certificates. We have used them since 2000 and would not consider dealing with anyone else.
