Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-increasing community that supplies new ways to gain cash online. One of these opportunities is to become a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end users, earning revenue 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 presently active domain names, so this is a blooming trading niche that you can be engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

A domain comprises two parts - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the second-level domain name.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names include the most widely used domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code TLDs are made of 2-character abbreviations that stand for 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 or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an organization that administers the registrations and determines the requirements that each specific Top-Level Domain may have, such as the duration of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact offer the domain name to customers and handle all domain records.

Make Revenue From Trading Domains

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to earn money from offering domains to end clients. If you subscribe to such a program, you can launch your own web business. Regularly, a domain name will be cheaper if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end user. The reason is that resellers can reach more clients in regional districts or countries where the Registrar may not be known at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will capitalize on that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.

Offer Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Very Own Brand

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will get a web page hosting CP where you can select the prices for the individual top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most firms also provide billing management software and layouts for your web shop, and the automation of the entire process coupled with the huge demand for domains make the domain reseller industry so attractive. You will either get a turn-key website and use the Registrar system to resell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your own personal site and form for placing orders. Typically, you have the opportunity to decide between the two alternatives, so it all revolves around how trained you are in these things. As a domain name reseller, you will do business on behalf of your own trademark name and not under the Registrar's.

Make Revenue From Promoting Web Space Hosting Plans As Well

A reasonable addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions as well. In this way, you can give a package deal to customers who would like to manage their web page and need both a domain and a hosting package. A few corporations supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can order a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and cost-free invoice software to charge your customers. You can then sell TLDs and shared web hosting accounts to customers, and since they offer a lot of different domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to customers from all over the globe.
