Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-enlarging platform that supplies new ways to gain cash on the Web. One of these opportunities is to be a domain reseller and sell domain names to end customers, earning profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. 1000's of domains are registered each day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently active domain names, so this is a growing business niche that you can be involved in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain includes two entities - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names comprise the most widely used domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code top-level domain names involve 2-character abbreviations that denote each country. Instances of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic or a country-code one, has a Registry - an institution that handles the registrations and determines the preconditions that each concrete top-level domain name may involve, like the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact offer the domain name to customers and handle all DNS resource records.

Make Money From Trading Domains

Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to earn cash from offering domain names to end clients. If you register with such a program, you can commence your very own personal electronic business. Commonly, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end client. The reason is that resellers can contact more people in areas or countries where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will make a profit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain name registration.

Sell Top-Level Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Personal Brand

When you subscribe to a domain reseller program, you will have a webspace hosting Control Panel where you can set the prices for the individual top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most firms also offer invoice transaction software and web site themes for your online storefront, and the automation of the entire procedure coupled with the considerable demand for domains render the domain reseller industry so tempting. You will either receive a turn-key site 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 online portal and form for placing orders. Generally, you have the option to select between the 2 options, so it all depends on how advanced you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will do business under your very own brand name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Make Money From Reselling Web Space Hosting Solutions As Well

A good supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts as well. In this way, you can give a package deal to users who would like to develop their online portal and demand both a domain and a web page hosting package. Certain firms furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can have a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and charge-free invoice management software to bill your clients. You can then offer domain names and shared website hosting packages to clients, and since they offer lots of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to people from all over the world.
