    If you can't or don't want to meet the criteria, you might want to consider being a reseller or affiliate for an existing registrar.

      WOW! They lowered the price, but it doesn't REALLY make things easier. Oh well! I ALREADY have the policy. But $70,000 in the BANK(Not stocks, bonds, gold, etc...), and a minimum of $7500+ in the first year, is just a little too much.

      And I hope you LOVE competing with the likes of godaddy and wildwest. For those that don't know, there is a market for kind of SUBlicensing, and wildwest is a company godaddy started so THEY could bit into that market.

        I'm pretty sure it used to be a million.

          I don't agree. The goal is to protect the integrity of the business and the safety of those who register domains with you....not to encourage people without back-up resources to enter the field.

            I was ****NOT**** claiming it wasn't proper, etc... I meant it was too much for ***ME*** and MOST. I always went in as a kind of sub registrar, with enom or wildwest or opensrs.
