Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-expanding community that provides new possibilities to earn money online. One of these ways is to become a domain name reseller and offer domains to end clients, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered every day, and there are millions of presently active domain names, so this is an enlarging business niche that you can become engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

A domain consists of 2 pieces - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we pick, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD.

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains comprise the most widespread domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains consist of two-character abbreviations that correspond to each country. Instances of country-code TLDs 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 one, has a Registry - an organization that manages the registrations and sets the prerequisites that each given TLD may have, like the length of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the firms that actually sell the domain name to customers and manage all domain name records.

Make Cash From Reselling Domain Names

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to gain profit from selling domain names to end customers. If you register with such a program, you can commence your own personal electronic business. Usually, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can reach more individuals in regional communities or states where the Registrar may not be famous whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will profit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar levies for the domain name registration.

Sell Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Personal Trademark Name

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will get a CP where you can settle the prices for the specific Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most companies also offer billing transaction software and web skins for your web storefront, and the automation of the entire process combined with the significant demand for domain names make the domain reseller business niche so attractive. You will either obtain a pre-made web site and utilize the Registrar system to resell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your own web site and form for placing orders. Typically, you have the opportunity to pick between the two options, so it all revolves around how experienced you are in these issues. As a domain reseller, you will do business under your very own trademark name and not under the Registrar's.

Earn Profit From Supplying Web Space Hosting Services Too

An adequate supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans too. Thereby, you can give a package deal to people who wish to create their website and require both a domain name and a hosting package. A number of companies provide 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 reseller account and free invoicing transaction software to bill your clients. You can then sell Top-Level Domains and shared website hosting accounts to customers, and since they offer plenty of different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to individuals from all over the world.
