Enom will end our reseller web hosting services on March 31, 2020. This move will help us streamline our product offering and platform to meet the needs of the majority of our resellers better and work to provide you greater value.
If you resell web hosting services, you need to find a new home for your reseller hosting business.
If you are a reseller with sub-accounts that sell hosting, you need to notify your sub-accounts. We recommend directing them to this page.
By the end of November 2019 — you will no longer be able to register web hosting services through your reseller account.
Before March 31, 2020 - you must download all necessary website files and begin your migration to Exact Hosting or the provider of your choosing. However, to avoid service interruptions for end-users, we recommend taking action as soon as possible.
On March 31st — all web hosting services registered through an Enom reseller account or sub-account will fall inactive:
- Resellers will no longer have access to the web hosting management tools via their Enom account.
- All domains pointing to Enom nameservers will redirect to a splash page with the following text:
“This website is no longer in service. If you are the owner of this website and want to reactivate your website, please contact Enom ASAP:
