Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-enlarging community that furnishes new options to gain cash online. One of these possibilities is to be a domain reseller and offer domains to end clients, 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 and every day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently active domain names, so this is a growing marketing niche that you can become engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

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

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains comprise the best known domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code TLDs are made of two-letter abbreviations that stand for each country. Examples 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 country-code TLD, has a Registry - an organization that handles the registrations and sets the requirements that each concrete top-level domain name may include, like the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the firms that actually sell the domain name to customers and manage all DNS resource records.

Earn Revenue From Trading Domain Names

Many Registrars have reseller programs that allow individuals to earn revenue from selling domain names to end clients. If you sign up for such a program, you can begin your own electronic business. As a rule, a domain name will be cheaper if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end client. The reason is that resellers can contact more users in local communities or countries where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will cash in on that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.

Trade Top-Level Domains Under Your Very Own Personal Brand

When you register with a domain reseller program, you will receive a web space hosting Control Panel where you can set the prices for the various TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also offer billing software and web themes for your online store, and the automation of the whole process combined with the considerable demand for domains make the domain reseller business so desirable. You will either acquire a pre-developed site and use 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 personal online portal and order form. Commonly, you have the option to choose between the 2 options, so it all depends on how experienced you are in these affairs. As a domain name reseller, you will operate on behalf of your personal brand and not under the Registrar's.

Earn Cash From Providing Web Hosting Services As Well

A reasonable addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting services too. Thus, you can offer a package deal to customers who wish to launch their online portal and need both a domain and a webspace hosting plan. Particular firms offer such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can purchase a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and free-of-cost billing management software to bill your clients. You can then offer top-level domain names and shared web hosting plans to clients, and since they offer lots of different domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to people from all over the globe.
