DNS Gateway - an up and coming Domain Reseller Platform

Managing various domain products on different platforms can be an administrative nightmare and potentially large financial risks often arise, should the domains lapse or expire without significant prior notice. The DNS Gateway Shared Registry System (SRS) offers a solution for domain name registrars and resellers who wish to access multiple domain name spaces via one integrated platform. 

The DNS Portal serves as an online user interface that allows Gateway Customers to manage their account as well as a full service Web-RAR. Domains can be registered, managed, renewed and transferred without the need to onboard every-time. Resellers and registrars can also benefit from DNS Africa’s ICANN Accreditation through the portal.

DNS Gateway Web-RAR Dashboard

Gateway just signed their first ICANN Accredited Registrar onto the Gateway Platform.  The Registrar is making use of Passthrough; a service we offer which is a simple and efficient way for a Registrar who is already directly accredited with a registry but wishes to consolidate technical operations through the DNS Gateway System. This allows them to benefit from all the features of the Gateway Platform whilst managing domains through a multitude of registries from one account. 

Gateway’s competitive pricing is economical to registrars and resellers with sought after domain names, such as .africa at $7.25 (currently on promotion), co.za at $5.90 and .com at $9.15 to name a few, openly available to Gateway clients. The only 3 city gTLDs on the African continent: .joburg, .capetown and .durban are also available on Gateway for a $4.75 and with multiple sales throughout the year, such as the Asante 50% sale, currently running through the month of September 2019, domain name registration is as easy as pie!

DNS Gateway Portal Features

In addition to the efficient local support, as well as the availability of an online chat system, should any pressing issues arise, the Portal’s responsive design makes Gateway render well on a variety of devices, allowing registrars and resellers to login and manage their accounts from wherever they are.  

We are continuously adding new domain names and registrars onto our system and with this expanding platform, resellers can expand their range simultaneously and ultimately increase their portfolios without the added stress of having to onboard multiple times, or attain individual ICANN accreditation. 

DNS is excited about its' first ICANN Accredited Registrar signing up (using Passthrough) and views this as a validation of the product and its position in the domain market. Additional features and enhancements are being developed and rolled out on a regular basis. 

If you are a domain reseller or registrar and would like more information we look forward to hearing from you (contact us here).
