Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-increasing platform that delivers new options to gain money on the Internet. One of these opportunities is to become a domain reseller and offer domain names to end users, generating profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently functioning domain names, so this is a flourishing trading niche that you can become engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

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

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domains

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains comprise the most conventional domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code Top-Level Domains contain two-letter abbreviations that stand for each country. Instances of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an organization that handles the registrations and sets the requirements that each specific Top-Level Domain may entail, including the duration of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the companies that actually sell the domain name to customers and administer all domain records.

Make Profit From Offering Domain Names

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to make cash from selling domains to end customers. If you subscribe to such a program, you can launch your very own personal Internet business. Generally, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end user. The explanation is that resellers can contact more individuals in provinces or states where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will make a profit from 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.

Sell Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Own Personal Trademark Name

When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will obtain a site hosting CP where you can determine the prices for the specific TLDs that the Registrar provides. Most firms also provide invoice transaction software and web templates for your web store, and the automation of the whole procedure together with the swelling demand for domains make the domain reseller market niche so tempting. You will either obtain a ready-to-use website and utilize the Registrar platform to sell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your own personal web page and order form. Commonly, you have the opportunity to decide between the 2 possibilities, so it all depends on how advanced you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will sell under your personal brand and not under the Registrar's.

Make Profit From Offering Web Hosting Plans As Well

An appropriate supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts as well. Thus, you can offer a package deal to people who desire to develop their web site and require both a domain name and a web site hosting plan. A few firms supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can have a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free-of-charge invoice transaction software to charge your clients. You can then offer top-level domain names and shared web hosting plans to customers, and since they provide plenty of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to clients from all around the world.
