NuNames Reseller accounts are designed for registrars, domain managers, and other domain name
resellers who wish to be able to manage domain names for their clients or other registrants.
Using a Reseller account, you will have access to your own unique, back office website where you will
be able to create your own customers who each have their own unique contact data and where you may
register and manage domain names for those customers.
NuNames offers two different types of accounts.
