More accurately, a reseller of a registrar  :)

I'm sure you will understand why I make a point of noting the
distinction.  Unlike Registrars, resellers of registrar services have
no voice inside ICANN.  The registrars constituency won't have us, the
business constituency wants rules to bar us from there, and there just
isn't any other place for us to be heard.
