Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-growing community that offers new possibilities to earn cash on the Internet. One of these opportunities is to be a domain reseller and offer domains to end customers, earning revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. Thousands of domains are registered every day, and there are millions of currently active domain names, so this is a blooming marketing niche that you can be involved in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain involves 2 pieces - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The gTLDs include the most widely used domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the ccTLDs are composed of 2-character abbreviations that correspond to each country. Examples of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic TLD or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an institution that handles the registrations and sets the preconditions that each concrete TLD may involve, like the length of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the firms that actually offer the domain name to customers and administer all domain records.

Make Revenue From Selling Domains

Lots of Registrars have reseller programs that permit individuals to gain money from offering domains to end users. If you sign up for such a program, you can kick off your own personal web business. Normally, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is purchased straight from the Registrar by an end customer. The cause is that resellers can reach more persons in regional districts or states where the Registrar may not be known at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will benefit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain registration.

Offer Domain Names Under Your Very Own Personal Brand Name

When you register with a domain reseller program, you will have a Control Panel where you can settle the prices for the different TLDs that the Registrar provides. Most firms also provide invoicing transaction software and site skins for your virtual shop, and the automation of the entire process combined with the rising demand for domain names make the domain reseller business so desirable. You will either obtain a pre-built web site and use the Registrar system to resell domains, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your own personal portal and form for placing orders. Commonly, you have the option to select between the two options, so it all depends on how practiced you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will work on behalf of your personal trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Earn Money From Offering Web Site Hosting Plans Too

A nice supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts too. Thereby, you can offer a package deal to users who want to establish their web portal and demand both a domain and a site hosting plan. Given companies offer such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can order a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free-of-cost invoice software to charge your customers. You can then sell domains and shared web hosting packages to customers, and since they provide many diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to individuals from all around the world.
