Resell GD


Resell GD Plugin – Allow GoDaddy Resellers to redirect product sales and perform domain name search through their reseller.

This plugin is built completely with PHP Objects. All of the obhects except godaddyreseller.php can be inherited for customiztion.
There are some rules for this:

  • The customized object must be in the custom directory.
  • The filename must be _custom.php, i.e. gd_admin_custom.php
  • The class must be named _custom and inherit , i.e class gd_core_custom inherits gd_core {.
  • It should include a constructor that calls the parent constructor:
    function __construct() {

javascript and css files may be customized also. The custom items are placed in the custom folder and named custom.js and
custom.css. The default scripts and css files are enqueued before the custom scripts.

  • Import GoDaddy Products. Select the Export Group, the GoDaddy Price management page the products are on, and click the Do Import button. The import can rakde some time.
  • Import GoDaddy Prices. These are the prices exported from the GoDaddy Price management page.
  • Add your shortcodes to your posts or pages. You can use the Shortcode Generator to generate a shortcode.

  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Configure Resell GD
  4. Import GoDaddy Products
  5. Import GoDaddy Prices

How can I change the look of the Domain Search Widget

The html and the css for the widget are very spartan. It is dimply a form with a text box and a submit button. The first change you might want
to make is to the css for the widget. Follow the following steps to change the css.

  1. Create the resell-gd_custom directory in the plugins directory of you site if it doesn’t exist.
  2. Create the file custom.css if it doesn’t exist.
  3. If the following rules do not exist, create them or edit the existing rules. Note that the sprite image I am using is in the
    resell-gd_custom/images directory.
  4. Save the files and check it out.

    .gd_widget_submit {
    background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0) url(“images/readmore-sprite.png”) no-repeat scroll left top;
    border: none;
    border-radius: 23px;
    display: block;
    height: 46px;
    width: 200px;
    font-size: 125%;
    color: #fff;

    .gd_widget_input {
    width: 200px;

To add text to the widget, do the following:

  1. Create the resell-gd_custom directory in the plugins directory of you site if it doesn’t exist.
  2. Create the file gd_widget_custom.php. Insert the following:


    class gd_widget_custom extends gd_widget {

    function __construct() {


    public function widget( $args, $instance ) {
        $args['after_widget'] = '<h4 class="text-center" style="color: #a9a883;">It All Starts With A Domain Name</h4>'.$args['after_widget'];
        parent::widget( $args, $instance );



The above will add the text ‘It All Starts With A Domain Name’ below the widget.
