Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-developing community that supplies new opportunities to earn cash on the Internet. One of these options is to be a domain name reseller and offer domains to end clients, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently active domain names, so this is a thriving marketing niche that you can become involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain includes two pieces - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we pick, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domains

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The gTLDs comprise the most famous domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code TLDs involve two-character abbreviations that signify 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 TLD, has a Registry - an institution that administers the registrations and determines the prerequisites that each particular top-level domain name may include, among them the length of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the corporations that actually sell the domain name to clients and manage all domain resource records.

Gain Money From Selling Domain Names

Many Registrars have reseller programs that permit individuals to earn profit from selling domains to end users. If you subscribe to such a program, you can set up your own e-business. Typically, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end user. The explanation is that resellers can contact more persons in regional districts or countries where the Registrar may not be popular at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will profit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain name registration.

Trade Top-Level Domains On Behalf Of Your Very Own Personal Brand

When you register with a domain reseller program, you will obtain a CP where you can select the prices for the specific Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most companies also provide invoice transaction software and web site skins for your web store, and the automation of the whole process together with the great demand for domains render the domain name reseller business so tempting. You will either have a pre-developed website and make use of the Registrar platform to sell domains, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your very own personal web site and order form. Generally, you have the option to select between the two alternatives, so it all depends on how proficient you are in these issues. As a domain reseller, you will sell under your own personal brand name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Make Money From Providing Hosting Solutions As Well

A good addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts too. In this way, you can offer a package deal to persons who wish to manage their web site and require both a domain name and a webspace hosting account. Some corporations have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can buy a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and free-of-cost billing management software to bill your customers. You can then offer domains and shared website hosting plans to customers, and since they offer a lot of different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to customers from all around the globe.
