Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-enlarging network that provides new ways to earn cash on the Internet. One of these opportunities is to be a domain reseller and offer domains to end clients, earning profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. Thousands of domains are registered each day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently functioning domain names, so this is a flowering business niche that you can be engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

A domain involves 2 constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we pick, for instance, ".com" is the top-level domain name and "domain" is the SLD.

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names include the most popular domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code top-level domain names involve two-letter abbreviations that symbolize each country. Instances of country-code top-level domain names are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a country-code one, has a Registry - an organization that handles the registrations and determines the prerequisites that each concrete top-level domain name may include, such as the length of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies operate under the Registry. These are the firms that actually offer the domain name to clients and handle all domain name resource records.

Gain Revenue From Offering Domain Names

Many Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to gain cash from selling domains to end users. If you subscribe to such a program, you can start your own personal electronic business. As a rule, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is bought straight from the Registrar by an end client. The explanation is that resellers can contact more clients in regions or countries where the Registrar may not be famous at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will benefit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain registration.

Trade Domains Under Your Personal Brand Name

When you register with a domain reseller program, you will get a web hosting Control Panel where you can choose the prices for the various Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also offer invoice management software and web design templates for your virtual storefront, and the automation of the whole procedure combined with the big demand for domain names render the domain name reseller market so desirable. You will either have a ready-made web site and avail of the Registrar system to sell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your very own site and order form. Commonly, you have the opportunity to pick between the two options, so it all depends on how accomplished you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will do business on behalf of your own personal brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Make Money From Supplying Site Hosting Plans Too

An excellent addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans as well. Thereby, you can offer a package deal to customers who want to build their web portal and require both a domain and a web hosting plan. Certain firms supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can run a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and charge-free billing management software to charge your clients. You can then sell domains and shared hosting packages to clients, and since they provide plenty of different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to users from all around the globe.
