Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-flourishing network that supplies new possibilities to gain cash on the Web. One of these opportunities is to be a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end customers, generating revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. 1000's of domains are registered each and every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently active domains, so this is a blooming trading niche that you can be engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

A domain is composed of two 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 Second-Level Domain.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the most widespread domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code top-level domain names include two-letter abbreviations that signify each country. Examples of country-code top-level domain names are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an organization that manages the registrations and sets the preconditions that each particular TLD may include, among them the duration of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the corporations that actually offer the domain name to customers and administer all DNS resource records.

Make Revenue From Reselling Domains

Lots of Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to gain money from selling domains to end clients. If you subscribe to such a program, you can kick off your very own online business. Commonly, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is purchased directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The explanation is that resellers can contact more clients in regional districts or countries where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will profit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain registration.

Offer Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Very Own Personal Brand

When you register with a domain reseller program, you will obtain a hosting CP where you can set the prices for the individual Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most firms also offer invoicing software and themes for your web shop, and the automation of the entire process together with the increasing demand for domains make the domain name reseller industry so attractive. You will either get a pre-developed site and avail of the Registrar system to sell domain names, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your very own personal web site and order form. Usually, you have the option to select between the two possibilities, so it all revolves around how proficient you are in these things. As a domain name reseller, you will do business under your very own personal brand name and not under the Registrar's.

Gain Money From Promoting Web Page Hosting Solutions As Well

A proper addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting packages as well. In this way, you can offer a package deal to persons who desire to create their online portal and require both a domain name and a site hosting plan. A few corporations furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can have a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free-of-cost invoice software to bill your customers. You can then sell top-level domain names and shared hosting plans to customers, and since they provide lots of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to people from all around the world.
