Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-growing community that provides new opportunities to make money on the Internet. One of these ways is to become a domain reseller and offer domains to end users, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently functioning domains, so this is an enlarging trading niche that you can become a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

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

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the most famous domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code TLDs are composed of 2-character abbreviations that symbolize 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 top-level domain name, has a Registry - an institution that is responsible for the registrations and sets the preconditions that each given Top-Level Domain may contain, including the duration of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies operate under the Registry. These are the companies that actually offer the domain name to clients and handle all DNS records.

Gain Profit From Selling Domain Names

Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that allow people to gain profit from offering domains to end users. If you sign up for such a program, you can commence your very own Internet business. Commonly, a domain will cost less if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is purchased directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can reach more users in provinces or states where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will benefit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain name registration.

Sell Domain Names Under Your Personal Trademark Name

When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will receive a web hosting CP where you can determine the prices for the individual top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also provide invoice software and web themes for your virtual storefront, and the automation of the whole procedure together with the vast demand for domain names render the domain reseller industry so attractive. You will either acquire a pre-made web site and utilize the Registrar platform to resell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your very own personal online portal and form for placing orders. Generally, you have the opportunity to select between the two alternatives, so it all depends on how advanced you are in these things. As a domain reseller, you will work under your own trademark name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Earn Cash From Trading Webspace Hosting Packages As Well

A logical supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting services too. Thus, you can offer a package deal to individuals who want to create their site and need both a domain and a web space hosting package. Given corporations have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can have a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and free-of-cost billing transaction software to charge your clients. You can then sell domains and shared web hosting packages to clients, and since they provide a lot of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to persons from all around the globe.
