Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-growing platform that generates new possibilities to make cash on the Web. One of them is to become a domain reseller and offer domains to end clients, making revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently active domains, so this is a growing business niche that you can become a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

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

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names comprise the most common domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains include two-letter abbreviations that denote each country. Instances of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic TLD or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an organization that manages the registrations and determines the requirements that each specific top-level domain name may have, among them the length of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact sell the domain name to clients and manage all domain records.

Make Money From Offering Domains

Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to earn money from selling domain names to end users. If you register with such a program, you can kick off your very own web business. Usually, a domain name will cost less if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is bought straight from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can contact more customers in local districts or countries where the Registrar may not be famous at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will capitalize on that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain registration.

Resell Top-Level Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Very Own Brand Name

When you register with a domain name reseller program, you will have a site hosting Control Panel where you can determine the prices for the individual top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most companies also offer invoice management software and site layouts for your online store, and the automation of the entire process coupled with the enormous demand for domains render the domain name reseller industry so desirable. You will either obtain a pre-developed website and use the Registrar system to resell domain names, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your very own online portal and form for placing orders. Normally, you have the option to select between the two possibilities, so it all revolves around how skilled you are in these things. As a domain reseller, you will do business on behalf of your personal trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Earn Profit From Reselling Site Hosting Solutions As Well

A suitable addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting packages as well. Thereby, you can offer a package deal to customers who would like to manage their web page and require both a domain and a web hosting plan. Given firms have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can buy a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free-of-cost invoice transaction software to charge your clients. You can then sell top-level domain names and shared website hosting plans to customers, and since they offer many diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to clients from all over the globe.
