Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-expanding system that provides new possibilities to gain money on the Web. One of these possibilities is to be a domain reseller and sell domains to end users, making profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. Thousands of domains are registered each day, and there are millions of presently active domain names, so this is a flourishing business niche that you can be a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

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

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domains

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The gTLDs comprise the most common domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains include two-character 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 or a country-code one, has a Registry - an institution that deals with the registrations and determines the prerequisites that each particular top-level domain name may involve, such as the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact offer the domain name to customers and handle all DNS resource records.

Gain Profit From Reselling Domains

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that allow people to make cash from selling domain names to end clients. If you subscribe to such a program, you can establish your own personal electronic business. Typically, a domain name will cost less if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is purchased straight from the Registrar by an end customer. The explanation is that resellers can reach more clients in regions or countries where the Registrar may not be popular 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 charges for the domain name registration.

Offer TLDs Under Your Own Personal Brand Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will receive a web page hosting CP where you can settle the prices for the various Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most firms also offer invoicing transaction software and web page themes for your online shop, and the automation of the entire process together with the high demand for domain names render the domain name reseller business so desirable. You will either receive a pre-developed website and use the Registrar platform to sell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your own web portal and form for placing orders. Traditionally, you have the option to pick between the two options, so it all revolves around how skilled you are in these affairs. As a domain reseller, you will do business under your personal trademark name and not under the Registrar's.

Earn Cash From Offering Website Hosting Plans Too

A nice supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions too. Thus, you can give a package deal to users who would like to manage their website and require both a domain and a hosting package. Some firms furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can run a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and free-of-cost billing software to charge your customers. You can then offer top-level domain names and shared hosting accounts to clients, and since they provide many different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to people from all over the world.
