Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-enlarging system that delivers new ways to gain cash on the Internet. One of these options is to be a domain reseller and offer domain names to end users, earning revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. 1000's of domains are registered each and every day, and there are millions of currently active domain names, so this is a developing marketing niche that you can be involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

A domain name includes 2 constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the second-level domain name.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs include the most widespread domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code top-level domain names comprise 2-letter abbreviations that symbolize each country. Examples of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a gTLD or a country-code one, has a Registry - an institution that handles the registrations and determines the requirements that each concrete Top-Level Domain may contain, including the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact sell the domain name to customers and handle all domain resource records.

Make Profit From Reselling Domains

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to earn profit from selling domain names to end users. If you register with such a program, you can start your own personal Internet business. Typically, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is purchased directly from the Registrar by an end client. The cause is that resellers can reach more customers in regions or states where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will take advantage of that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain name registration.

Offer TLDs Under Your Own Personal Brand Name

When you register with a domain name reseller program, you will get a web site hosting CP where you can set the prices for the individual TLDs that the Registrar provides. Most companies also provide billing management software and skins for your online shop, and the automation of the whole procedure coupled with the enlarging demand for domain names make the domain reseller business niche so tempting. You will either have a ready-made web site and make use of the Registrar platform to sell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your very own personal web page and order form. Usually, you have the option to decide between the 2 alternatives, so it all revolves around how trained you are in these things. As a domain reseller, you will operate under your own personal brand and not under the Registrar's brand.

Gain Cash From Supplying Web Site Hosting Solutions As Well

A suitable addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions as well. In this way, you can offer a package deal to customers who desire to set up their site and demand both a domain name and a web page hosting package. A few firms supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can order a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and cost-free invoicing software to bill your customers. You can then sell Top-Level Domains and shared website hosting accounts to clients, and since they provide many different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to customers from all over the world.
