NetRegistry has launched an affiliate scheme, offering resellers the chance to pitch domain names or hosting without the billing and technical support requirements of its current reseller program.
CEO, Larry Bloch, said the scheme was designed for businesses that wanted to resell domain-related services without getting tied into areas that didn't play to their expertise.
"This scheme really suits organisations that want to provide these services to customers but don't want to be responsible for ongoing billing. For example, a Web designer," he said. "In this way, resellers can maintain relationships with customers but we handle the back end."
Bloch said resellers would receive a 10 per cent finder's fee. They would continue to receive a 10 per cent cut of future purchases made by that customer, even if it was a result of NetRegistry marketing initiatives.
Resellers that sign up for the new scheme will also hold the right to offer billing and technical support to any clients they wish to service directly.
