Dear Bruce,

Are you referring to a registration or transfer procedure?

  If I am to register a gTLD domain today as a reseller, the registrar 
sends the successful confirmation message to my reseller contact email, not 
directly to the registrant contact. Isn't this correct?

Kind regards,

Lucian Kafka
