How Do I Get My eNom Domain Reseller Account?

The eNom account comes free with any Reseller, VPS or Dedicated Server hosting plan. It allows our resellers to buy domain names for as low as $9.50 per year and works with WHMCS. To request your eNom domain reseller account, please fill out the form located at:

This will also grant you access to eNom's website so you can manage your domains and even take advantage of eNom features such as the custom parking page — a one page website which can be used as a place holder while the real website is under construction.

Sub-Retail Accounts vs. Sub-Reseller Accounts

eNom offers two types of reseller accounts: sub-retail and sub-reseller. By default, your account is set up as a retail eNom account. Some of the differences between these types of accounts are listed below.

Sub-Retail:

  • You pay with a credit card PER domain registration.
  • You do not have access to the eNom reseller tools.
  • HostGator has full access to your domain names.

Sub-Reseller:

  • You make a $100.00 deposit and keep a positive balance on your account (credit card and PayPal will remove 3% per transaction).
  • You have access to the eNom reseller tools and sub-account structure (eNom API and Registry Rocket).
  • HostGator has limited access to your domain names.
  • You set your own default DNS to be used when registering domains.
  • You set your own default information for the WHOIS information when you register domains.
To upgrade your account from sub-retail to sub-reseller, please submit a ticket to our Billing department with your eNom username and password and request that the retail account be upgraded to a "reseller API" account.

eNom Price List

eNom offers domain registrations at the following prices (per year):

TLD Sub-Retail Sub-Reseller
.COM $10.74 $9.71
.NET $11.92 $10.65
.ORG $12.18 $10.88
.BIZ $11.56 $10.28
.US $11.27 $10.00
.INFO $11.56 $10.28

You must have an eNom domain reseller (retail or reseller API) account to get these prices. Other domain prices will vary. For a list of other domain TLD's eNom can register for you, please refer to HostGator's TLD list (your direct price from eNom should be lower than the price we list).

Note: As a result of a VeriSign price increase on January 14, 2012, the cost of registering .COM and .NET domains with eNom has increased by $0.50. Any domains ordered prior to Jan 14, 2012, will see a renewal fee which is higher than the initial order cost. The prices above reflect this price increase.

An additional price increase has been applied on December 29, 2014. The price for several TLDs has increased by roughly $0.20 to $1.00.

ResellerClub Accounts

ResellerClub accounts are free, allowing you to both register and manage domains for your clients. Currently this is only available for Reseller package sign-ups and will be provided for VPS and Dedicated servers in the future.

Clients may contact us with questions regarding the Verisign price increase; so, some quick notes:
 
  1. Our domain prices are not changing.
  2. This only affects eNom resellers, the majority seeing an increase of about 20-50 cents.
  3. The price change by ENOM was done on 1/14/12; however, the price change was officially done through VeriSign on 1/15/12. This is due to VeriSign hiking the price for registrars:
