Launch: Domain Name Management, Phase 3

Earlier this week we released phase 3 of our Domain Management system. Here is a quick summary of the features in this release:
* We modified the “Add Domains” section in the control panel to allow an admin to add a domain to our system without needing to purchase email hosting. This means that current customers can use us for DNS hosting or Registration but are not required to purchase mailboxes for those domains.
* We added a new section to “Upgrade Services” which will allow customers to purchase email hosting services for domains that are in our system but do not yet have email hosting services. So, if a customer purchases a new domain, but elects not to purchase email hosting they can at any time change their mind by going to this new section.
Thanks to Will, BL, Vinny, and Nell-Marie for their hard work on this project.
