Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-flourishing network that furnishes new possibilities to earn money on the Internet. One of these opportunities is to be a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end clients, generating profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. 1000's of domains are registered each day, and there are millions of currently active domains, so this is an enlarging trading niche that you can become a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

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

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains comprise the most popular domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the ccTLDs consist of 2-character abbreviations that denote each country. Instances of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic Top-Level Domain or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an institution that manages the registrations and determines the preconditions that each particular TLD may have, including the duration of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the companies that actually offer the domain name to clients and handle all domain records.

Make Profit From Trading Domain Names

Lots of Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to make money from offering domain names to end clients. If you register with such a program, you can kick off your very own web business. Typically, a domain name will be cheaper if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end user. The explanation is that resellers can reach more users in local communities or states where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will take advantage of that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar levies for the domain registration.

Sell Domain Names Under Your Own Brand Name

When you register with a domain reseller program, you will acquire a site hosting Control Panel where you can determine the prices for the various top-level domain names that the Registrar provides. Most companies also provide invoice management software and web page skins for your web storefront, and the automation of the entire process coupled with the high demand for domains make the domain name reseller business so seductive. You will either receive a ready-for-use website and make use of the Registrar platform to resell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your very own personal web site and form for placing orders. Typically, you have the option to decide between the two alternatives, so it all revolves around how skilled you are in these things. As a domain name reseller, you will do business under your very own personal trademark name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Make Cash From Promoting Site Hosting Services Too

A reasonable addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans as well. Thus, you can offer a package deal to individuals who want to run their online portal and require both a domain name and a web space hosting account. Given companies supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can order a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free-of-charge billing software to bill your customers. You can then offer TLDs and shared website hosting accounts to clients, and since they offer many different domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to clients from all around the globe.
