Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-developing community that supplies new options to make cash on the Internet. One of them is to be a domain reseller and offer domains to end clients, making profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered every day, and there are millions of presently functioning domain names, so this is a blossoming business niche that you can be engaged in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain name involves 2 components - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we pick domain.com, for example, ".com" is the top-level domain name and "domain" is the second-level domain name.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names comprise the most conventional domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code TLDs consist of two-letter abbreviations that represent each country. Examples of country-code top-level domain names are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an institution that is responsible for the registrations and sets the prerequisites that each specific top-level domain name may impose, like the duration of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the companies that actually offer the domain name to customers and manage all DNS resource records.

Earn Cash From Reselling Domains

Many Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to make cash from selling domains to end users. If you register with such a program, you can initiate your own personal web business. Usually, a domain name 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 contact more customers in areas or states where the Registrar may not be known at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will profit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.

Trade Top-Level Domains Under Your Own Brand Name

When you register with a domain name reseller program, you will obtain a site hosting Control Panel where you can set the prices for the individual top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most firms also offer billing management software and skins for your web storefront, and the automation of the entire process together with the expanding demand for domain names render the domain reseller business niche so desirable. You will either get a ready-for-use web site and make use of the Registrar system to resell domains, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your very own web site and order form. Traditionally, you have the option to pick between the two alternatives, so it all revolves around how skillful you are in these things. As a domain reseller, you will sell on behalf of your own trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Gain Revenue From Supplying Hosting Plans As Well

A sensible addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting services too. Thus, you can give a package deal to persons who would like to establish their web site and need both a domain and a site hosting plan. Some firms offer such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can buy a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free-of-charge billing management software to charge your clients. You can then offer top-level domain names and shared web hosting accounts to customers, and since they provide lots of different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to people from all around the world.
