Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-developing community that generates new ways to gain money on the Web. One of these ways is to become a domain reseller and offer domain names to end customers, making profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. 1000's of domains are registered each and every day, and there are millions of currently functioning domain names, so this is a blossoming business niche that you can be engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

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

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs include the most famous domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code TLDs involve 2-character abbreviations that stand for each country. Examples of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an institution that is responsible for the registrations and determines the requirements that each given TLD may have, like the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms work under the Registry. These are the corporations that actually offer the domain name to clients and handle all DNS records.

Earn Money From Reselling Domain Names

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that permit individuals to gain revenue from selling domains to end users. If you subscribe to such a program, you can kickstart your very own personal online business. Normally, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is bought straight from the Registrar by an end client. The explanation is that resellers can reach more customers in local districts or countries where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will cash in on that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain name registration.

Offer Top-Level Domains Under Your Own Personal Trademark Name

When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will obtain a web site hosting CP where you can select the prices for the specific top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most firms also provide invoice software and web design skins for your virtual storefront, and the automation of the whole process coupled with the enormous demand for domain names make the domain name reseller market so tempting. You will either acquire a ready-made web site and make use of the Registrar system to resell domains, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your own web portal and order form. Usually, you have the opportunity to decide between the 2 alternatives, so it all depends on how practiced you are in these things. As a domain name reseller, you will operate on behalf of your personal brand name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Earn Cash From Offering Webspace Hosting Solutions As Well

A reasonable supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans too. In this way, you can offer a package deal to customers who would like to build their site and need both a domain name and a web hosting plan. Certain companies offer such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can have a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free invoicing transaction software to bill your clients. You can then sell Top-Level Domains and shared website hosting accounts to clients, and since they offer lots of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to customers from all around the world.
