Domain Registration

Verve Logic allows you flexibility in selecting the domain name extensions (TLDs) that you want to sell and setting the Selling Price for your Customers and Sub-Resellers for your Domain Registration Product. The pricing model allows setting your Selling Price for Customers to suit the needs of your business. For Sub-Resellers, pricing is determined based on the Total Receipts based Slabs.

Select the TLDs that you want to Sell (Anchor: select-tld)

  1. Log in to your Control Panel. 1

  2. In the Menu, navigate to Settings > Manage Products and Pricing.

  3. Click on the Domain Registration link and then click on the Manage TLDs link.

  4. Here, you may choose to either:

    • Sell: To sell this TLD to your Customers and Sub-Resellers.

    • No New Orders: To stop accepting new Orders for this TLD from your Customers and Sub-Resellers. However, existing Orders can continue to be Managed and Renewed.

    • Do Not Sell: To entirely stop offering this TLD to your Customers and Sub-Resellers. However, you may set this status if there are no Orders of this TLD.

  5. Upon setting your TLD Signup Preferences, agree to the applicable Terms and Conditions and click on the Submit button.

Note

You have to compulsorily continue selling at least 1 TLD and can not discontinue selling all TLDs. This implies that at least 1 TLD should be on the Active status.

Setting Selling Prices for Domain Names

Given the  number of domain extensions that Verve Logic offers, the pricing tool is designed to be flexible and powerful to address various pricing needs you may have like:

  • Setting different prices for end customers and sub-resellers

  • Bulk updating prices for a set of extensions by simply specifying your desired profit margin

  • Setting different prices/profit margins for Registrations, Renewals, Transfers and Restores

  • Giving discounts for the minimum duration, while charging nominal prices for every subsequent duration or

  • Giving price discounts for multi-year registrations/renewals (telescopic pricing)

To Set your Domain Registration Selling Price

  1. Log in to your Control Panel.  2

  2. In the menu, navigate to Settings > Manage Products and Pricing .

  3. Click on the Domain Registration link and then click on the Manage Prices link.

  4. On the succeeding Domains Pricing Overview page, you will find a list of Top Level Domains (TLDs) that you have chosen to sell.

  5. Here, you can set the price for the TLD / TLDs in any of the following ways.
    • Search and Bulk update prices for a set of TLDs using the profit-based pricing tool

      With the bulk pricing tool, you can do a bulk search for the TLDs, specify your profit margin and the system will calculate and set your selling prices accordingly.

      1. Using the search box, enter the TLDs you wish to monitor/update. You could search for one or multiple TLDs using the search. 
      2. Click on the Set prices using Profit Margin link.
      3. Here, enter your desired profit margins. You could choose to enter values in percentage or absolute.  
      4. You can also round off your prices before or after the decimal to display more commercial values.
      5. Once done, hit the Save button.

      How does Rounding Off work?

      You can round off your calculated Selling Price(s) by specifying the last digit, before or after the decimal. Your Selling Price(s) will be rounded off to the closest number, based on your input.

      Note that profit margins might vary slightly from the specified due to rounding off.

      Attention    

      Your Selling Price(s) will NOT be updated automatically, should your Cost Price change.

    •  Set prices individually for a TLD

      Click on the icon against the TLD you wish to manage.

      On the next page, set your selling prices as per your business requirements. You could:

      • Set different prices for each action, i.e. Registration, Renewal, Transfer and Restore.
      • Set reducing price for each year to offer multi-year discounts. This way, you can offer increased discounts as and when your Customers register / renew domain names for more than the typical one year.
      • Set discounts for the minimum duration and nominal prices for every subsequent tenure, etc.

      Certain TLDs have a one-time Application Fee for Registrations in the Sunrise Period, apart from the normal Registration charges. Set the Application Cost pricing, wherever required. This amount will appear as a separate component 'Application Fee' in the Invoice.

       

      Additional Information

      Invoices

      Note
      • Enter only Per year selling prices in each field. The system will calculate the final price for every duration for your Customers at the time of purchase.

      • Example:

      • If you wish to charge USD 20 for a 2 year registration, enter USD 10 as your 'per year' price against the 2 years field. At the time of purchase, the system will calculate 10*2, and charge your Customer USD 20 for a 2 year registration.

      • Alternatively, if you wish to give discounts for multi-year registrations, set a reduced 'per year' price in each field. Hence, if you want to offer a 2 year registration for USD 18 and not USD 20, set USD 9 as the reduced 'per year' price in the field against 2 years.

      • Your Customers will not be displayed multi-year prices on your SuperSite, if you set the same per year price for all years.

      • Example:

      • If you have set USD 10 as the 'per year' price for all the years, then your SuperSite will only display USD 10 as your Selling Price. So if your Customer chooses to register a domain name in that TLD for 3 years, he will be charged USD 10*3 = USD 30.

      • Telescopic prices cannot be set for Transfers and Restores.

      • When Specific Pricing is not set, your Customers would get the best of telescopic prices (if any) and promotional prices (if any).

    •  Set prices individually for a TLD

      Click on the icon against the TLD you wish to manage.

    Note
    • The Base Selling Price cannot be empty.

    • Each Slab must have a Pricing lower than or equal to the previous Slab.

    • You may enter zero (0) in any field.

      Example:

      If you set the Domain Name Renewal price for .COM domains as 0 for a particular Slab for your Sub-Resellers, then a Sub-Reseller falling under that Slab would be able to Renew .COM domain names for free.

    • When you set the Price to zero (0), an Invoice is still raised for the Domain Name Registration Product but its value is zero (0). This is done only from the perspective of recording the transaction. Your Sub-Reseller is never asked to pay for this Invoice.

    • A Slab can have the Price field empty, in which case it will be ignored.

    • You can offer Telescopic Pricing .on .UK domain names for your Sub-Resellers. You can set Telescopic Pricing within each Pricing Slab that you may have added.

    • The SuperSite and PartnerSite contain Pricing information about the Products and Services you offer to your Customers and Resellers respectively. This data is downloaded to your SuperSite and PartnerSite from your Control Panel and cached (stored) on the SuperSite and PartnerSite Server respectively. The cache of your SuperSite and PartnerSite will be reloaded automatically, once you have completed the above process. This way, the updated details will be downloaded to your SuperSite and PartnerSite from your Control Panel.
