Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-enlarging system that generates new options to make cash on the Web. One of these possibilities is to be a domain name reseller and sell domains to end users, generating profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. Thousands of domains are registered each and every day, and there are millions of presently functioning domain names, so this is a blossoming marketing niche that you can be a part of.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain name contains two constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we pick, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the second-level domain name.

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs include the most widely used domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains include two-character abbreviations that stand for each country. Examples of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a gTLD or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an institution that deals with the registrations and determines the preconditions that each concrete Top-Level Domain may entail, such as the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact offer the domain name to customers and handle all domain name resource records.

Earn Money From Offering Domains

Numerous Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to gain money from selling domains to end users. If you register with such a program, you can commence your very own Internet business. Regularly, a domain name will cost less if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is purchased straight from the Registrar by an end client. The cause is that resellers can contact more people in local communities or states where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will capitalize on that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain name registration.

Offer TLDs Under Your Own Brand

When you subscribe to a domain reseller program, you will acquire a site hosting CP where you can settle the prices for the various TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most companies also provide billing software and site layouts for your online store, and the automation of the entire process together with the expanding demand for domains render the domain name reseller market so tempting. You will either obtain a pre-developed website and avail of the Registrar platform to resell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your own online portal and form for placing orders. Traditionally, you have the option to pick between the 2 options, so it all depends on how accomplished you are in these things. As a domain name reseller, you will work on behalf of your very own trademark name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Earn Profit From Trading Web Page Hosting Accounts Too

A relevant addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans as well. Thus, you can give a package deal to persons who desire to build their online portal and need both a domain name and a website hosting package. Given companies offer such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can order a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free-of-cost billing management software to bill your customers. You can then offer domain names and shared website hosting plans to clients, and since they provide a lot of different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to users from all over the globe.
