Depends how much you're talking about "doing themselves" - if you feel
like writing a domain registration system and your own tags, it'll cost
you a sum upfront just to be able to register.  If you don't do that, then
you can mostly use any of the cheap registration companies that take your
fancy, and webscrap them or hook into an API to do some/most of the job.
Doubly so when some of them want to make it easy for you to resell and
manage domains without having to do much work yourself.

Uh, one or two ourshack members thought it was, they're implicated in (as am I).  You may even find that this gives you some
influence in getting things added to it if you feel it's not quite right.
