Domain reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-increasing platform that provides new options to gain money on the Web. One of these options is to become a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end clients, making revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered each day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently functioning domain names, so this is a blossoming trading niche that you can be a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

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

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The gTLDs comprise the most common domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the ccTLDs consist of 2-character abbreviations that denote each country. Instances of country-code top-level domain names are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a gTLD or a country-code one, has a Registry - an organization that is responsible for the registrations and sets the preconditions that each concrete Top-Level Domain may entail, among them the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact sell the domain name to clients and manage all domain name records.

Make Revenue From Offering Domain Names

Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that permit individuals to make profit from offering domain names to end customers. If you sign up for such a program, you can kickstart your own web business. Generally, a domain will cost less if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end client. The reason is that resellers can reach more users in regional communities or states where the Registrar may not be famous at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will earn a profit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar levies for the domain name registration.

Sell Domains Under Your Own Trademark Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will obtain a hosting Control Panel where you can determine the prices for the different Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most companies also provide invoice management software and website themes for your online shop, and the automation of the whole procedure combined with the considerable demand for domains make the domain name reseller business niche so attractive. You will either acquire a pre-built website and make use of the Registrar system to resell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your very own personal site and form for placing orders. Traditionally, you have the opportunity to choose between the two alternatives, so it all revolves around how practiced you are in these matters. As a domain name reseller, you will operate under your personal trademark name and not under the Registrar's.

Gain Money From Promoting Website Hosting Plans Too

A nice supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts as well. Thereby, you can offer a package deal to customers who would like to launch their website and require both a domain and a hosting plan. Some companies furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can order a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and free-of-cost billing management software to charge your customers. You can then offer Top-Level Domains and shared web hosting accounts to clients, and since they offer many different domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to people from all over the world.
