Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-growing network that delivers new possibilities to gain money on the Internet. One of these ways is to be a domain reseller and offer domain names to end users, making profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered each day, and there are millions of presently functioning domains, so this is a thriving marketing niche that you can become a part of.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain name is made 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 name and "domain" is the SLD.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the most widespread domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code TLDs include two-character abbreviations that denote each country. Instances of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a gTLD or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an institution that tackles the registrations and sets the requirements that each given TLD may contain, such as the duration of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact sell the domain name to clients and manage all domain name resource records.

Earn Cash From Trading Domain Names

Many Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to earn money from offering domains to end clients. If you register with such a program, you can launch your own personal electronic business. Usually, a domain will be cheaper if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is purchased directly from the Registrar by an end client. The explanation is that resellers can reach more users in regions or countries where the Registrar may not be famous at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will take advantage of that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain registration.

Resell TLDs On Behalf Of Your Personal Brand Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will obtain a web site hosting CP where you can choose the prices for the individual Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most companies also offer invoice software and design themes for your online storefront, and the automation of the whole process coupled with the growing demand for domain names make the domain reseller business so desirable. You will either get a ready-for-use web site and make use of the Registrar platform to resell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your own online portal and order form. Traditionally, you have the opportunity to pick between the two options, so it all depends on how skillful you are in these affairs. As a domain reseller, you will work under your own personal trademark name and not under the Registrar's.

Gain Cash From Trading Webspace Hosting Services Too

An excellent supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts as well. In this way, you can give a package deal to clients who would like to make their online portal and demand both a domain name and a site hosting plan. A number of companies supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can buy a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and charge-free billing software to bill your clients. You can then sell TLDs and shared hosting packages to clients, and since they provide a lot of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to individuals from all over the world.
