Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-increasing platform that supplies new ways to earn cash online. One of these opportunities is to be a domain name reseller and offer domains to end clients, making profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are millions of currently functioning domain names, so this is an enlarging business niche that you can be engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

A domain contains two components - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take domain.com, for example, ".com" is the top-level domain name and "domain" is the SLD.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domains

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the most common domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code Top-Level Domains are made of two-letter abbreviations that stand for each country. Examples of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a gTLD or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an institution that manages the registrations and determines the requirements that each particular top-level domain name may include, including the duration of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact sell the domain name to clients and administer all domain name resource records.

Gain Cash From Reselling Domain Names

Numerous Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to gain revenue from offering domains to end customers. If you sign up for such a program, you can build your own personal online business. As a rule, a domain name will be cheaper if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is bought straight from the Registrar by an end user. The reason is that resellers can contact more clients in local districts or states where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will make a profit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain registration.

Offer Top-Level Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Personal Trademark Name

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will receive a web site hosting Control Panel where you can choose the prices for the specific top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most companies also offer invoice management software and web page templates for your virtual storefront, and the automation of the whole process together with the proliferating demand for domain names render the domain reseller market so attractive. You will either acquire a pre-built web site and avail of the Registrar platform to resell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your very own online portal and order form. Typically, you have the option to pick between the two possibilities, so it all revolves around how expert you are in these matters. As a domain name reseller, you will operate on behalf of your own personal brand name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Earn Profit From Trading Webspace Hosting Services Too

A proper supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting packages as well. Thereby, you can give a package deal to clients who want to run their website and demand both a domain and a hosting plan. Given companies offer such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can have a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and free billing management software to bill your clients. You can then offer domain names and shared hosting plans to customers, and since they offer plenty of different domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to persons from all over the world.
