Do you register domains on behalf of your clients?

Do you usually get your clients to register their own domains or do you do it for them?  I'm concerned with the management of the domain as well as the on-going billing.  Is there any advantage to re-selling and/or is it worth it?

If you do, please elaborate.  If you don't please elaborate. :)

Cheers,

Rob

Thanks to you both.  I think what's important here is the visibility for the client, rather than trying to "re-sell" the service.  I'm guessing the margins are so slim that it's not worth the hassle and best to just let them have it done each year.

Correct, domain registration is maybe $10. Pointless trying to get a cut of that, but you DO need access and visibility for when something goes wrong.
