Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-enlarging platform that offers new opportunities to gain money online. One of these possibilities is to be a domain name reseller and offer domains to end users, earning profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. Thousands of domains are registered each and every day, and there are millions of currently functioning domain names, so this is a blossoming marketing niche that you can be involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

A domain contains two constituents - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we pick, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The gTLDs include the most popular domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code TLDs are composed of 2-letter abbreviations that correspond to each country. Examples of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic TLD or a country-code one, has a Registry - an institution that tackles the registrations and determines the preconditions that each given Top-Level Domain may have, such as the length of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact sell the domain name to clients and manage all domain name resource records.

Earn Cash From Reselling Domain Names

Numerous Registrars have reseller programs that allow individuals to gain revenue from selling domains to end customers. If you subscribe to such a program, you can set up your very own e-business. Typically, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is purchased directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The explanation is that resellers can contact more users in provinces or states where the Registrar may not be popular at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will earn a profit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.

Resell Domains Under Your Very Own Brand

When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will obtain a web space hosting Control Panel where you can settle the prices for the various TLDs that the Registrar provides. Most firms also offer billing management software and web themes for your web storefront, and the automation of the whole process together with the proliferating demand for domain names make the domain reseller business so attractive. You will either obtain a ready-to-use web site and utilize the Registrar system to sell domain names, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your own web site and order form. Traditionally, you have the option to select between the 2 possibilities, so it all depends on how accomplished you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will sell under your very own brand name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Make Cash From Promoting Web Hosting Solutions As Well

A perfect supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans too. Thereby, you can offer a package deal to persons who desire to manage their online portal and demand both a domain and a web hosting account. Some companies supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can order a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and free invoice transaction software to charge your customers. You can then offer domain names and shared web hosting plans to clients, and since they provide a lot of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to persons from all around the world.
