Domain reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-flourishing system that supplies new possibilities to earn cash on the Internet. One of them is to become a domain name reseller and sell domains to end clients, generating 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 currently active domain names, so this is a flourishing marketing niche that you can be a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain name involves two pieces - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the SLD.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domains

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The gTLDs include the most widespread domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code Top-Level Domains are made of two-character abbreviations that symbolize each country. Examples of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an institution that is responsible for the registrations and determines the requirements that each particular Top-Level Domain may contain, such as the length of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact sell the domain name to customers and handle all domain name records.

Make Cash From Reselling Domain Names

Lots of Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to gain cash from offering domain names to end customers. If you sign up for such a program, you can initiate your own personal electronic business. Typically, a domain will be more inexpensive 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 people in regional communities or countries where the Registrar may not be popular at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will make a profit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain name registration.

Resell Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Very Own Brand Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will receive a webspace hosting Control Panel where you can determine the prices for the individual Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most companies also offer billing transaction software and web design skins for your online storefront, and the automation of the entire process coupled with the rising demand for domains make the domain reseller industry so attractive. You will either get a pre-developed web site and use the Registrar platform to resell domains, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your own web site and order form. Typically, you have the option to select between the 2 alternatives, so it all revolves around how experienced you are in these issues. As a domain name reseller, you will do business under your personal brand and not under the Registrar's brand.

Make Money From Promoting Webspace Hosting Solutions Too

An appropriate addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting services as well. Thereby, you can offer a package deal to customers who would like to build their site and require both a domain and a web space hosting account. A number of firms furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can order a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free-of-charge invoice transaction software to charge your clients. You can then sell top-level domain names and shared web hosting plans to clients, 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 globe.
