Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-growing network that provides new ways to make cash on the Internet. One of these possibilities is to become a domain name reseller and sell domain names to end clients, earning revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are millions of currently active domain names, so this is an enlarging marketing niche that you can be engaged in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain involves 2 constituents - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we pick domain.com, 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 gTLDs comprise the most common domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code top-level domain names involve two-character abbreviations that represent each country. Instances of ccTLDs 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 organization that is responsible for the registrations and determines the requirements that each concrete Top-Level Domain may impose, like the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar firms work under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact sell the domain name to clients and administer all DNS resource records.

Make Revenue From Reselling Domains

Lots of Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to make profit from offering domain names to end users. If you register with such a program, you can kickstart your own Internet business. Regularly, a domain name will cost less if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end client. The explanation is that resellers can reach more customers in local districts or states where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will profit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar levies for the domain name registration.

Offer Domains Under Your Own Trademark Name

When you subscribe to a domain reseller program, you will have a web site hosting CP where you can select the prices for the individual Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also provide invoice management software and web page layouts for your online store, and the automation of the whole process coupled with the increasing demand for domain names make the domain reseller market niche so desirable. You will either acquire a pre-developed website and avail of the Registrar system to sell domains, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your own personal website and order form. Generally, you have the option to decide between the 2 alternatives, so it all revolves around how trained you are in these affairs. As a domain name reseller, you will sell on behalf of your personal brand name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Earn Profit From Reselling Web Space Hosting Solutions Too

A relevant supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts too. Thus, you can offer a package deal to customers who want to launch their online portal and need both a domain name and a web site hosting package. Given firms furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can have a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and free-of-cost billing transaction software to charge your customers. You can then offer Top-Level Domains and shared web hosting plans to clients, and since they offer lots of different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to persons from all around the globe.
