    Benefits/Costs of Becoming an ICANN-Accredited Registrar

    Hi, I was wondering how onerous the ICANN registrar accreditation process really is, in practice.

    The Rules require proof of financial solvency as well as technical proficiency, but can't a lot of the technical aspects be outsourced?

    If you were getting into the business of researching/buying/reselling a large volume of domain names, wouldn't it make sense to just become a registrar yourself? Thanks!

    Sorry for the late response ;-) Just noticed this thread now. The process usually takes 2-3 months (ICANN has a lot of requests now and the due diligence takes time as well).

    You can outsource the technical process and those service providers that offer hosted systems to run a registrar often will also help you get accredited if you're willing to commit to using their services for a while.

    Usually it only stars making sense at about 8,000 to 10,000 domains if you're looking to save money. If it's about protection/control for your own portfolio.

    Let me know if you would like to know more.
