Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-increasing community that provides new options to gain cash on the Internet. One of these possibilities is to become a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end customers, gaining profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. 1000's of domains are registered each day, and there are millions of currently active domain names, so this is a flowering trading niche that you can become engaged in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain name comprises two components - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we pick, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD.

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs include the most common domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code top-level domain names are made of two-letter abbreviations that correspond to 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 country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an organization that handles the registrations and sets the preconditions that each concrete Top-Level Domain may impose, like the length of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the firms that actually offer the domain name to customers and administer all DNS records.

Earn Profit From Selling Domain Names

Numerous Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to earn money from selling domains to end users. If you sign up for such a program, you can commence your very own web business. Usually, a domain will be cheaper if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end client. The cause is that resellers can contact more persons in provinces or states where the Registrar may not be famous whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will take advantage of that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.

Trade Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Personal Brand Name

When you register with a domain reseller program, you will get a site hosting CP where you can choose the prices for the individual top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also offer billing management software and web layouts for your web shop, and the automation of the entire process combined with the large demand for domains make the domain name reseller market so seductive. You will either acquire a pre-built web site and utilize the Registrar system to sell domains, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your own web site and form for placing orders. Usually, you have the opportunity to pick between the two possibilities, so it all revolves around how proficient you are in these issues. As a domain name reseller, you will operate under your very own trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Make Cash From Selling Site Hosting Plans Too

A reasonable supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts too. Thus, you can offer a package deal to clients who want to establish their online portal and need both a domain and a hosting plan. Particular companies supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can purchase a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and cost-free invoicing transaction software to charge your customers. You can then offer Top-Level Domains and shared website hosting accounts to customers, and since they offer many diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to clients from all over the globe.
