Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-enlarging network that supplies new ways to gain money on the Web. One of these options is to become a domain reseller and sell domains to end users, earning 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 millions of presently functioning domains, so this is a flourishing marketing niche that you can become engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain name is composed of 2 components - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we pick, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the SLD.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the best known domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code top-level domain names comprise two-letter abbreviations that represent each country. Examples of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic TLD or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an institution that handles the registrations and sets the preconditions that each specific Top-Level Domain may have, among them the length of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms work under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact offer the domain name to customers and handle all domain resource records.

Gain Money From Offering Domains

Many Registrars have reseller programs that allow people to earn money from selling domains to end clients. If you sign up for such a program, you can kickstart your very own personal Internet business. Generally, a domain will be cheaper if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end user. The reason is that resellers can contact more users in areas or states where the Registrar may not be known at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will benefit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain registration.

Offer Domain Names Under Your Own Trademark Name

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will get a web space hosting Control Panel where you can fix the prices for the specific Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most firms also provide invoice software and layouts for your virtual store, and the automation of the entire process together with the high demand for domains make the domain reseller market niche so alluring. You will either acquire a ready-for-use website and avail of the Registrar system to sell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your own personal web site and form for placing orders. Typically, you have the opportunity to pick between the 2 alternatives, so it all revolves around how practiced you are in these things. As a domain name reseller, you will work under your very own personal brand name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Earn Cash From Supplying Hosting Solutions As Well

A nice supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts too. In this way, you can give a package deal to customers who want to run their online portal and demand both a domain name and a web site hosting plan. A number of corporations supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can purchase a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free invoice transaction software to charge your customers. You can then sell top-level domain names and shared web hosting packages to clients, and since they provide a lot of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to customers from all around the globe.
