Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-increasing platform that provides new opportunities to gain cash online. One of these possibilities is to become a domain reseller and offer domains to end customers, making profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently active domain names, so this is a blooming business niche that you can be involved in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain name consists of two parts - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the most popular domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code TLDs are composed of two-letter abbreviations that stand for each country. Instances of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic TLD or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an institution that deals with the registrations and determines the prerequisites that each specific top-level domain name may involve, including the length of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact offer the domain name to clients and manage all DNS resource records.

Make Cash From Trading Domains

Numerous Registrars have reseller programs that permit individuals to earn cash from selling domains to end customers. If you subscribe to such a program, you can initiate your very own web business. Generally, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end client. The reason is that resellers can reach more persons in provinces or states where the Registrar may not be famous 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 registration.

Resell Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Personal Trademark Name

When you register with a domain reseller program, you will get a hosting CP where you can choose the prices for the different TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most firms also provide invoice management software and web themes for your virtual shop, and the automation of the whole procedure combined with the swelling demand for domains render the domain reseller market niche so desirable. You will either receive a pre-made web site and utilize the Registrar platform to sell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your own site and form for placing orders. Traditionally, you have the opportunity to pick between the two alternatives, so it all revolves around how advanced you are in these things. As a domain name reseller, you will do business on behalf of your very own trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Earn Money From Trading Site Hosting Packages Too

A good supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting services as well. In this way, you can offer a package deal to customers who wish to set up their web page and need both a domain name and a web hosting plan. A few corporations furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can run a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and free invoice software to bill your clients. You can then offer TLDs and shared website hosting accounts to customers, and since they provide many different domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to clients from all over the world.
