Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-flourishing community that offers new possibilities to gain cash on the Internet. One of these ways is to be a domain name reseller and offer domains to end clients, gaining profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are millions of presently functioning domain names, so this is an enlarging marketing niche that you can become a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain contains two constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the second-level domain name.

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The gTLDs include the most common domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code top-level domain names are made of 2-character abbreviations that signify each country. Examples of country-code top-level domain names are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an organization that deals with the registrations and sets the requirements that each specific top-level domain name may entail, among them the length of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies operate under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact sell the domain name to clients and handle all DNS resource records.

Gain Cash From Selling Domain Names

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that allow individuals to make revenue from selling domain names to end customers. If you sign up for such a program, you can launch your own e-business. Commonly, a domain name will cost less if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can contact more users in regional districts or countries where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will cash in on that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.

Trade TLDs On Behalf Of Your Very Own Personal Trademark Name

When you subscribe to a domain reseller program, you will have a web site hosting Control Panel where you can choose the prices for the different TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most firms also offer billing transaction software and design layouts for your online shop, and the automation of the whole procedure together with the strong demand for domain names make the domain name reseller industry so desirable. You will either have a pre-built web site and utilize the Registrar platform to resell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your own web site and order form. Typically, you have the opportunity to select between the two alternatives, so it all revolves around how accomplished you are in these affairs. As a domain reseller, you will work under your very own brand and not under the Registrar's brand.

Earn Revenue From Reselling Site Hosting Solutions Too

A sensible addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions too. Thereby, you can offer a package deal to customers who wish to establish their web site and need both a domain name and a hosting plan. A few corporations supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, 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 bill your customers. You can then sell domain names and shared web hosting plans to clients, and since they offer lots of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to persons from all over the globe.
