Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-enlarging platform that generates new possibilities to gain cash on the Internet. One of these opportunities is to be a domain reseller and sell domain names to end users, generating revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. Thousands of domains are registered every day, and there are millions of currently functioning domains, so this is an enlarging marketing niche that you can be involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

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

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the most common domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains contain two-character abbreviations that correspond to each country. Instances of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an organization that handles the registrations and determines the preconditions that each given top-level domain name may include, including the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact sell the domain name to clients and handle all domain resource records.

Make Revenue From Offering Domain Names

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to make money from selling domains to end clients. If you sign up for such a program, you can establish your very own personal electronic business. Typically, a domain name will be cheaper if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The explanation is that resellers can contact more clients in regional communities or countries where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will cash in on that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain registration.

Offer Top-Level Domains Under Your Very Own Personal Brand

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will have a web site hosting Control Panel where you can choose the prices for the different TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most firms also offer billing management software and web design themes for your virtual shop, and the automation of the entire process combined with the growing demand for domains make the domain reseller business niche so desirable. You will either obtain a ready-for-use web site and avail of the Registrar platform to resell domains, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your very own personal website and form for placing orders. Normally, you have the opportunity to choose between the two alternatives, so it all depends on how trained you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will operate under your own personal brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Earn Cash From Offering Webspace Hosting Services As Well

A reasonable supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions too. Thereby, you can give a package deal to customers who wish to establish their website and demand both a domain name and a web space hosting plan. A few firms provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can have a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free invoice software to bill your clients. You can then sell domains and shared website hosting accounts to customers, and since they offer many different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to individuals from all over the globe.
