Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-enlarging system that offers new options to gain cash on the Web. One of these options is to become a domain name reseller and offer domains to end customers, earning profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each day, and there are millions of presently functioning domains, so this is a flowering trading niche that you can be engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

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

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The gTLDs include the most widespread domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code TLDs include 2-letter abbreviations that denote each country. Instances of country-code top-level domain names are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an organization that is responsible for the registrations and determines the requirements that each given top-level domain name may entail, like the length of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact sell the domain name to clients and manage all domain name records.

Make Revenue From Selling Domain Names

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to make profit from offering domains to end customers. If you subscribe to such a program, you can kick off your own personal Internet business. Generally, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end user. The explanation is that resellers can reach more clients in regional communities or countries where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will benefit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain name registration.

Resell Domains On Behalf Of Your Own Brand

When you subscribe to a domain reseller program, you will have a website hosting CP where you can determine the prices for the individual TLDs that the Registrar provides. Most firms also provide invoice software and site skins for your online shop, and the automation of the entire process combined with the enlarging demand for domain names render the domain reseller industry so alluring. You will either obtain a ready-for-use website and utilize the Registrar system to resell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your very own site and form for placing orders. Commonly, you have the option to pick between the two alternatives, so it all depends on how skilled you are in these issues. As a domain name reseller, you will sell on behalf of your very own personal trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Make Profit From Providing Web Hosting Accounts Too

An appropriate supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions too. In this way, you can offer a package deal to persons who wish to develop their website and demand both a domain name and a web space hosting package. Certain corporations furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can buy a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free-of-cost invoicing transaction software to charge your clients. You can then offer Top-Level Domains and shared website hosting packages to customers, and since they offer plenty of different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to individuals from all around the globe.
