Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-flourishing network that supplies new ways to make money on the Web. One of these possibilities is to be a domain reseller and sell domain names to end customers, generating profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently functioning domains, so this is a growing business niche that you can become involved in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain name is made of two entities - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The gTLDs comprise the most popular domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code Top-Level Domains contain 2-letter abbreviations that denote each country. Instances of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic Top-Level Domain or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an institution that tackles the registrations and sets the prerequisites that each concrete top-level domain name may have, such as the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the companies that actually offer the domain name to clients and handle all domain name records.

Gain Money From Trading Domains

Numerous Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to gain revenue from offering domain names to end customers. If you sign up for such a program, you can set up your very own personal electronic business. Usually, a domain will be cheaper if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is purchased straight from the Registrar by an end user. The explanation is that resellers can reach more clients in regions or countries where the Registrar may not be famous whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will earn a profit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain registration.

Sell Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Personal Brand Name

When you register with a domain name reseller program, you will acquire a website hosting CP where you can determine the prices for the specific TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also offer billing management software and web templates for your web store, and the automation of the whole process together with the large demand for domain names render the domain reseller market so attractive. You will either have a pre-built website and utilize the Registrar platform to sell domain names, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your own web portal and order form. Normally, you have the opportunity to choose between the 2 options, so it all depends on how trained you are in these affairs. As a domain reseller, you will work under your own brand name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Gain Revenue From Providing Web Space Hosting Packages Too

A logical supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting services too. Thereby, you can give a package deal to persons who desire to have their web page and need both a domain name and a web hosting plan. Particular corporations supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can buy a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and charge-free billing management software to charge your customers. You can then offer domain names and shared hosting packages to customers, and since they provide lots of different domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to persons from all over the world.
