I strongly hope all interested ISPs take a close look at, and implement
OpenSRS (, which allows you to become a domain reseller of

This is currently the best way to "strike back" at Network Solutions.

OpenSRS gives you CGI software for a registration interface, and a separate
management interface, which customers can login to, and change the contact
info in real time!!  No sloppy garbage email interface, no $30 charge.  And
it's way less expensive ($10/year/domain).

The only thing NetSol has going for it is the fact that is has been there so
long.  Everything else about it stinks and we all know it!!!!!! (Thanks to
Tucows for helping create this alternative....)
