  • I answered your question in my first post. There is no way to configure lots of IFD top-level domains with a single deployment. You will need a separate deployment for each top-level domain. This is expensive and I've never heard of a reseller or customer willing to pay for it, which is which is why I don't know any hosting companies that provide this service.

  • Hello, I launched the UK's leading Microsoft Dynamics CRM hosting business in 2006 and sold it in Feb 2009. I recently wrote a blog article (What now for Microsoft's hosting partners?) about how I see the future for Microsoft's CRM hosting partners -- in short, I wouldn't launch a CRM hosting business if I were you.

    If you want to use different domain names for each reseller, you'll need a set of front-end web servers for each reseller. This will make your service a LOT more expensive than CRM Online.

    Regards, Neil
