Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-growing network that supplies new ways to make money on the Internet. One of these options is to become a domain reseller and sell domains to end users, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently functioning domain names, so this is a flowering marketing niche that you can become engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

A domain includes two entities - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we pick, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD.

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names include the most conventional domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code Top-Level Domains are made of 2-letter abbreviations that correspond to each country. Instances of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, 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 particular TLD may contain, among them the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact offer the domain name to customers and manage all domain records.

Earn Cash From Reselling Domains

Lots of Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to earn profit from selling domains to end clients. If you sign up for such a program, you can establish your very own personal electronic business. As a rule, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can contact more users in provinces or countries where the Registrar may not be known at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will take advantage of that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar levies for the domain name registration.

Trade Domains On Behalf Of Your Own Brand Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will get a site hosting Control Panel where you can determine the prices for the separate TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most companies also provide billing management software and skins for your virtual shop, and the automation of the whole procedure together with the proliferating demand for domain names make the domain reseller industry so tempting. You will either acquire a turn-key web site and avail of the Registrar system to sell domains, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your very own personal site and form for placing orders. Usually, you have the opportunity to decide between the 2 alternatives, so it all depends on how trained you are in these matters. As a domain name reseller, you will work on behalf of your very own personal trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Earn Cash From Reselling Web Space Hosting Accounts Too

A good addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting packages as well. Thus, you can offer a package deal to persons who want to build their website and require both a domain and a web page hosting package. A number of companies provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can manage a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free-of-cost billing transaction software to bill your clients. You can then offer Top-Level Domains and shared hosting accounts to clients, and since they provide many different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to customers from all around the world.
