Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-developing community that delivers new opportunities to earn money on the Internet. One of these options is to be a domain reseller and offer domain names to end clients, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently active domain names, so this is a blossoming business niche that you can be a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

A domain is composed of 2 entities - 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 Domains can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the most common domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the ccTLDs include 2-character abbreviations that correspond to each country. Examples of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a gTLD or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an institution that administers the registrations and sets the requirements that each particular TLD may impose, like the length of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the companies that actually offer the domain name to customers and administer all DNS resource records.

Make Revenue From Offering Domains

Numerous Registrars have reseller programs that permit individuals to make money from offering domain names to end users. If you subscribe to such a program, you can commence your very own e-business. Regularly, a domain will be cheaper if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end user. The reason is that resellers can contact more customers in areas or states where the Registrar may not be known at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will take advantage of that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain name registration.

Trade Domains Under Your Very Own Personal Brand Name

When you register with a domain reseller program, you will receive a site hosting Control Panel where you can select the prices for the specific Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most firms also offer billing software and web page themes for your web shop, and the automation of the whole process coupled with the considerable demand for domain names render the domain name reseller market niche so tempting. You will either have a pre-developed site and utilize the Registrar platform to resell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your very own website and order form. Usually, you have the option to pick between the two possibilities, so it all depends on how expert you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will sell under your own personal brand name and not under the Registrar's.

Make Cash From Selling Web Hosting Solutions As Well

A logical addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting services too. Thereby, you can give a package deal to clients who desire to launch their website and demand both a domain name and a web site hosting account. A number of firms have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can manage a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and free-of-cost invoice software to bill your customers. You can then offer top-level domain names and shared website hosting packages to clients, and since they provide many diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to individuals from all around the globe.
