Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-expanding community that furnishes new opportunities to make cash on the Internet. One of these ways is to be a domain reseller and offer domains to end users, earning revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered every day, and there are millions of presently active domains, so this is a thriving marketing niche that you can be engaged in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain consists of 2 constituents - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we pick, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names include the best known domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code top-level domain names are made of two-character abbreviations that represent each country. Examples of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic TLD or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an institution that deals with the registrations and determines the requirements that each concrete Top-Level Domain may entail, like the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the firms that actually offer the domain name to customers and administer all domain resource records.

Make Money From Offering Domain Names

Numerous Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to gain cash from selling domains to end users. If you subscribe to such a program, you can set up your own web business. Regularly, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is bought straight from the Registrar by an end user. The cause is that resellers can reach more clients in regional communities or states where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. 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 client pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain name registration.

Resell Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Very Own Brand Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will acquire a website hosting CP where you can select the prices for the various TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most companies also provide invoice transaction software and skins for your virtual store, and the automation of the entire process combined with the significant demand for domains make the domain reseller business niche so desirable. You will either obtain a turn-key website and use the Registrar system to resell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your own personal web portal and form for placing orders. Normally, you have the option to decide between the two possibilities, so it all revolves around how practiced you are in these issues. As a domain name reseller, you will do business on behalf of your own brand name and not under the Registrar's.

Earn Revenue From Offering Hosting Plans Too

An appropriate supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts too. In this way, you can give a package deal to users who would like to launch their web page and need both a domain name and a web page hosting package. Some firms provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can manage a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and free billing management software to bill your clients. You can then sell domain names and shared website hosting accounts to clients, and since they provide a lot of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to individuals from all over the world.
