Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-growing community that offers new ways to gain cash on the Web. One of these options is to become a domain name reseller and sell domains to end customers, generating revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are millions of presently functioning domains, so this is a growing marketing niche that you can become engaged in.

TLDs and SLDs

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

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names comprise the most widely used domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains contain 2-letter abbreviations that stand for each country. Instances 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 ccTLD, has a Registry - an institution that handles the registrations and sets the requirements that each specific top-level domain name may impose, including the duration of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the companies that actually offer the domain name to clients and administer all DNS records.

Earn Cash From Offering Domains

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to make money from offering domains to end clients. If you subscribe to such a program, you can kickstart your own Internet business. Regularly, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end user. The explanation is that resellers can contact more clients in provinces or states where the Registrar may not be famous at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will make a profit 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.

Trade Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Own Personal Brand Name

When you register with a domain reseller program, you will acquire a web site hosting Control Panel where you can determine the prices for the specific Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also provide billing software and web design skins for your web store, and the automation of the whole procedure combined with the growing demand for domains make the domain name reseller business niche so alluring. You will either receive a turn-key site and make use of the Registrar system to resell domains, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your very own site and form for placing orders. Commonly, you have the opportunity to pick between the two alternatives, so it all revolves around how accomplished you are in these matters. As a domain name reseller, you will operate under your personal brand name and not under the Registrar's.

Earn Money From Trading Hosting Services Too

A sensible supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans as well. Thus, you can offer a package deal to customers who desire to run their online portal and require both a domain and a web page hosting plan. A number of companies furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can manage a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and free-of-charge invoicing transaction software to bill your clients. You can then offer domain names and shared web hosting plans to customers, and since they offer a lot of different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to people from all around the world.
