Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-flourishing community that supplies new opportunities to make cash on the Web. One of these opportunities is to be a domain reseller and offer domains to end customers, making profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. Thousands of domains are registered each day, and there are millions of presently active domain names, so this is an expanding business niche that you can be a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain name involves two constituents - 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 SLD.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names include the most conventional domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the ccTLDs consist of 2-letter abbreviations that represent each country. Instances of country-code TLDs 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, has a Registry - an organization that is responsible for the registrations and determines the preconditions that each specific Top-Level Domain may contain, like the length of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies operate under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact offer the domain name to customers and manage all domain records.

Earn Revenue From Offering Domains

Lots of Registrars have reseller programs that allow individuals to gain profit from selling domains to end clients. If you sign up for such a program, you can launch your own personal e-business. As a rule, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is purchased directly from the Registrar by an end user. The explanation is that resellers can contact more individuals in local districts or countries where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. 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 user pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain registration.

Resell Top-Level Domains Under Your Own Brand

When you register with a domain reseller program, you will obtain a web space hosting Control Panel where you can fix the prices for the different TLDs that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also provide invoicing software and site skins for your online shop, and the automation of the entire process together with the great demand for domains make the domain reseller business so desirable. You will either get a pre-made website and use the Registrar system to sell domains, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your very own personal website and form for placing orders. Usually, you have the option to choose between the two options, so it all revolves around how advanced you are in these things. As a domain name reseller, you will sell on behalf of your own personal trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Earn Money From Promoting Webspace Hosting Packages As Well

An appropriate addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting services too. In this way, you can give a package deal to users who want to set up their web portal and demand both a domain name and a webspace hosting plan. Given companies supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can buy a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free-of-charge invoice software to charge your clients. You can then offer TLDs and shared web hosting packages to clients, and since they offer lots of different domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to clients from all over the globe.
