Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-increasing platform that generates new options to make cash on the Internet. One of these options is to be a domain reseller and sell domains to end users, gaining profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are millions of currently functioning domain names, so this is a blooming marketing niche that you can become engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain name is composed of 2 constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we pick domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs comprise the most widespread domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code TLDs consist of two-letter abbreviations that represent each country. Instances of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a gTLD or a country-code one, has a Registry - an organization that administers the registrations and sets the prerequisites that each concrete Top-Level Domain may contain, like the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact offer the domain name to clients and manage all DNS resource records.

Earn Profit From Reselling Domains

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that allow people to earn money from offering domains to end clients. If you subscribe to such a program, you can kickstart your own personal electronic business. As a rule, a domain will be cheaper if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is purchased directly from the Registrar by an end user. The reason is that resellers can reach more users in regional communities or countries where the Registrar may not be known at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will take advantage of that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain registration.

Sell Domains On Behalf Of Your Personal Trademark Name

When you register with a domain reseller program, you will get a site hosting CP where you can fix the prices for the different top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most firms also offer invoice software and web design skins for your web storefront, and the automation of the entire process combined with the towering demand for domain names make the domain name reseller business so seductive. You will either receive a pre-developed website and avail of the Registrar platform to resell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your own personal web portal and form for placing orders. Typically, you have the opportunity to pick between the two alternatives, so it all depends on how advanced you are in these affairs. As a domain name reseller, you will work under your personal brand name and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Make Money From Providing Web Site Hosting Accounts Too

A good supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting services as well. Thus, you can give a package deal to persons who desire to make their web site and need both a domain name and a web page hosting account. Some firms have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can manage a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free-of-charge billing software to charge your customers. You can then offer top-level domain names and shared hosting plans to customers, and since they provide plenty of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to persons from all over the world.
