How to manage your domain portfolio better

What are your domainer business goals this year? Whether you want to keep better track of nameservers, audit pricing, or simply increase sales, you will need an effective platform for conducting domain portfolio management.

When it comes to reselling domains or purchasing a large number of domains on behalf of others, to guarantee success, you need a place where you can: 

  • Secure great domain deals
  • Seamlessly manage your domain portfolio
  • Access all the tools you need to purchase, maintain, and sell domains
  • Easily integrate and configure necessary features

Spaceship offers all this and more. Created with domains and better domain management at the core, we’ve got all the essentials for helping you maintain your portfolio and do domainer business effectively. Spaceship’s competitive pricing will also help ensure long-term success for your domain reselling business.

And it’s all on an easy-to-use customer-driven platform that you’re helping to shape. If there are any features or tools you think would make managing your domains even better, you have the power to help make them a reality.

For now, let’s take a closer look at the current features that will help you manage your domain portfolio better.

Simple domain management

If you have a large number of domains to take care of, you must keep track of countless important details to stay on top of your business and not miss important deadlines, such as domain expiry dates.

Spaceship has several tools and features to streamline domain name portfolio management so that domainers can focus on acquiring, selling, and optimizing their domains rather than getting bogged down in administrative tasks. Two essential features are the Domain List and the Domain Portfolio.

Domain List

The Domain List simplifies the process of keeping track of your owned domains. You can easily check information about expiry dates and linked products. The simple layout will prevent you from missing renewals and keep you up-to-date regarding other important information about your domain assets.

Domain Portfolio


Domain Portfolio has multiple features to help you monitor your domain name portfolio. The export list allows you to export a list of domain names with all their related information. Meanwhile, the category management features let you oversee and manage domains more effectively by adding them to personalized categories.

Another handy aspect of both Domain List and Domain Portfolio is that you can configure URL redirects and email forwarding for free.

And if privacy is a concern, we even provide free privacy protection for all eligible TLDs. This means that your personal information won’t be visible in the WHOIS database of domain owners.

Easy domain transfers 

For all domainers, no matter the size of their portfolio, the ability to transfer a domain in and out is paramount. If you’re in the business of acquiring and transferring domains, Spaceship simplifies the process. You can swiftly transfer domains to Spaceship if they were purchased elsewhere and transfer them out if they are sold to a new owner without any fuss. Spaceship’s domain privacy protection also enhances security and privacy during these transfers.

To initiate the transfer process, you can use the Transfer Manager feature. Here, you can view, manage, and submit transfers all in one place. You also have the option to import your list of domain names from a CSV file and transfer your domains in bulk.

If you want to transfer a domain to another Spaceship account owner, you can do so with Domain List. Before transfer, you can review the contact information and choose to retain the original information or update it with the new owner's details.

It’s as simple as:

  • Logging in to your Spaceship account and finding the Domain List app.
  • Select the domain name you want to transfer to another Spaceship account.
  • Hitting Transfer in the side panel and then selecting Transfer ownership.

When the transfer is successful, both you and the new owner will receive a notification in your Spaceship account and email.

Optimized DNS Management

Overseeing everything related to DNS is essential for domainers, especially when preparing domains for sale. From setting up DNS configurations to advanced DNS settings, including nameserver management and Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC), maintaining the technical aspects of domains will ensure transfers go smoothly. Spaceship’s DNS Preset Manager and Advanced DNS features make things easy.

DNS Preset Manager

DNS Preset Manager allows you to create preset DNS configurations to apply to all your domains, whether a single preset or several groups of them. This will save you time in the long run, as you’ll be able to apply preset configurations in just a few clicks rather than filling out the same configuration each time. It also reduces the risk of making mistakes.

You can also implement the Default DNS Preset feature so that all newly registered domain names are automatically configured with your preferred preset right after registration. If anything goes wrong along the way, the Conflict Resolution Layer feature continually checks DNS configurations and will notify you if it detects that the DNS configuration made might not work properly.

Advanced DNS

For more comprehensive DNS management and control, the Advanced DNS features will cover all your needs. It has DNSSEC enabled by default for stronger domain security and to protect from DNS-related attacks and unauthorized changes.

You’ll also get complete freedom over domain settings, from product connections and adding subdomains to adjusting DNS settings, allowing domainers to customize domains for sale or transfer.

Manage your domains with Spaceship

When it comes to effectively managing your domain portfolio, whatever its size, the Spaceship platform is the perfect choice for anyone who values ease of use and complete control over their online setup.

If that sounds like you, check out our wide selection of domains. If you already have domains you purchased somewhere else, submit them for transfer to Spaceship today.
