Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-increasing network that supplies new ways to make cash on the Web. One of these possibilities is to be a domain reseller and offer domains to end customers, making revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered every day, and there are millions of presently active domains, so this is an expanding business niche that you can be a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

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

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The gTLDs comprise the best known domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code TLDs comprise two-letter abbreviations that represent each country. Examples of country-code top-level domain names are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an organization that tackles the registrations and sets the preconditions that each concrete top-level domain name may involve, such as the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact offer the domain name to customers and manage all domain resource records.

Earn Money From Reselling Domain Names

Numerous Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to earn profit from offering domain names to end clients. If you subscribe to such a program, you can launch your own personal online business. Commonly, a domain will cost less if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is bought straight from the Registrar by an end client. The explanation is that resellers can reach more users in local communities or countries where the Registrar may not be famous whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will cash in on that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain registration.

Trade Domain Names Under Your Own Trademark Name

When you register with a domain reseller program, you will receive a website hosting Control Panel where you can choose the prices for the separate Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also offer invoice software and web layouts for your virtual shop, and the automation of the whole process combined with the high demand for domain names render the domain reseller business so tempting. You will either get a pre-developed site and make use of the Registrar system to resell domains, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your own personal web page and form for placing orders. Commonly, you have the option to select between the two alternatives, so it all revolves around how skilled you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will work on behalf of your very own trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Make Revenue From Trading Website Hosting Packages Too

A perfect supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting packages too. Thus, you can give a package deal to persons who wish to set up their website and require both a domain and a web page hosting plan. A number of firms furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can purchase a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and free invoice management software to bill your clients. You can then sell Top-Level Domains and shared hosting plans to clients, and since they offer a lot of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to users from all over the globe.
