Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-increasing network that furnishes new ways to earn money online. One of these possibilities is to be a domain name reseller and sell domain names to end users, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered each day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently functioning domain names, so this is a flourishing trading niche that you can be a part of.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain involves two parts - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we pick, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the second-level domain name.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domains

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs include the most famous domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code top-level domain names are made of 2-character abbreviations that signify each country. Examples of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an organization that handles the registrations and determines the requirements that each specific Top-Level Domain may contain, like the duration of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies operate under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact offer the domain name to customers and administer all domain name records.

Gain Cash From Reselling Domains

Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to make cash from selling domains to end clients. If you register with such a program, you can establish your very own personal web business. As a rule, a domain will cost less if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end user. The reason is that resellers can contact more individuals in regional communities or states where the Registrar may not be famous at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will make a profit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.

Trade TLDs On Behalf Of Your Own Personal Brand Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will get a web page hosting CP where you can set the prices for the separate Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most firms also offer invoice software and web site themes for your online store, and the automation of the whole procedure coupled with the proliferating demand for domain names make the domain name reseller business niche so desirable. You will either receive a pre-developed website and make use of the Registrar platform to resell domains, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your very own web portal and order form. Generally, you have the opportunity to select between the two alternatives, so it all revolves around how trained you are in these things. As a domain reseller, you will do business under your very own personal brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Gain Revenue From Reselling Web Site Hosting Accounts As Well

A nice addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions too. In this way, you can give a package deal to persons who would like to make their web portal and need both a domain name and a hosting account. A number of corporations supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can have a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and cost-free billing software to charge your customers. You can then offer top-level domain names and shared hosting accounts to clients, and since they offer many different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to customers from all around the world.
