Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-developing network that offers new options to make cash on the Web. One of these options is to become a domain reseller and sell domain names to end users, earning profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently functioning domain names, so this is a flourishing marketing niche that you can be involved in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain is composed of 2 components - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we pick, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD.

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names comprise the most common domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains comprise 2-character abbreviations that correspond to each country. Examples of ccTLDs 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 institution that is responsible for the registrations and sets the prerequisites that each specific Top-Level Domain may include, among them the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar firms work under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact offer the domain name to customers and manage all domain resource records.

Gain Money From Trading Domains

Lots of Registrars have reseller programs that permit individuals to make cash from selling domains to end clients. If you register with such a program, you can begin your own online business. Generally, a domain will be cheaper if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end client. The explanation is that resellers can reach more clients in local districts or states where the Registrar may not be popular at all. This means 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 customer pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain registration.

Trade Domains On Behalf Of Your Very Own Personal Brand Name

When you register with a domain name reseller program, you will obtain a hosting CP where you can choose the prices for the different top-level domain names that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also offer invoice transaction software and web page themes for your online shop, and the automation of the entire procedure combined with the swelling demand for domains render the domain reseller business so attractive. You will either receive a ready-made web site and make use of the Registrar platform to sell domain names, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your very own site and order form. Usually, you have the opportunity to pick between the 2 options, so it all depends on how experienced you are in these things. As a domain reseller, you will do business under your own trademark name and not under the Registrar's.

Make Profit From Providing Web Hosting Services As Well

A nice supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts too. In this way, you can give a package deal to users who want to establish their site and demand both a domain name and a web hosting package. Some corporations 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 name reseller account and charge-free billing transaction software to charge your customers. You can then sell Top-Level Domains and shared hosting plans to clients, and since they offer many different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to persons from all around the world.
