Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-enlarging community that delivers new opportunities to earn money on the Internet. One of these ways is to be a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end customers, earning profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are millions of presently functioning domains, so this is a blooming trading niche that you can be involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

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

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains comprise the most widely used domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code Top-Level Domains are composed of 2-character abbreviations that denote each country. Examples of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic TLD or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an organization that manages the registrations and sets the requirements that each concrete Top-Level Domain may entail, like the length of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the firms that actually offer the domain name to customers and handle all domain records.

Earn Revenue From Selling Domains

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to make cash from offering domain names to end clients. If you sign up for such a program, you can commence your very own personal e-business. Normally, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can reach more users in local districts or countries where the Registrar may not be famous at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will benefit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain registration.

Offer Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Personal Trademark Name

When you subscribe to a domain reseller program, you will get a hosting CP where you can select the prices for the specific Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also offer billing transaction software and web site themes for your virtual shop, and the automation of the entire procedure together with the flourishing demand for domains make the domain reseller business so desirable. You will either acquire a pre-built website and use the Registrar system to resell domains, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your very own site and form for placing orders. Normally, you have the opportunity to choose between the two options, so it all revolves around how practiced you are in these affairs. As a domain name reseller, you will do business on behalf of your very own trademark name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Earn Revenue From Supplying Web Space Hosting Services As Well

A perfect supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions too. Thus, you can offer a package deal to customers who desire to manage their website and demand both a domain and a hosting plan. A number of firms supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can manage a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and charge-free billing management software to bill your customers. You can then offer domains and shared website hosting accounts to clients, and since they offer lots of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to users from all around the globe.
