Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-enlarging platform that furnishes new options to gain money on the Internet. One of these options is to be a domain name reseller and sell domain names to end customers, making profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered every day, and there are millions of presently functioning domain names, so this is an increasing trading niche that you can become involved in.

TLDs and SLDs

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

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs comprise the most common domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code top-level domain names comprise 2-letter abbreviations that correspond to each country. Examples 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 name, has a Registry - an institution that is responsible for the registrations and sets the requirements that each given top-level domain name may entail, among them the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact sell the domain name to customers and administer all domain records.

Make Profit From Trading Domain Names

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that permit individuals to earn profit from offering domain names to end clients. If you register with such a program, you can set up your own Internet business. Commonly, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end user. The cause is that resellers can reach more customers in local districts or countries where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will profit from 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.

Resell Domains Under Your Own Brand

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will acquire a web hosting CP where you can select the prices for the specific Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also offer invoice transaction software and web design skins for your online storefront, and the automation of the entire process coupled with the immense demand for domains render the domain name reseller market niche so seductive. You will either have a turn-key site and make use of the Registrar system to resell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your very own web page and form for placing orders. Normally, you have the opportunity to pick between the 2 options, so it all revolves around how skillful you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will operate on behalf of your very own trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Make Revenue From Reselling Site Hosting Accounts Too

A logical addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting services too. In this way, you can give a package deal to clients who wish to have their online portal and need both a domain name and a site hosting plan. A few corporations furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can purchase a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and cost-free invoicing software to bill your customers. You can then offer domain names and shared web hosting plans to customers, and since they provide plenty of different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to persons from all over the globe.
