Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-increasing community that furnishes new ways to make money on the Web. One of these options is to be a domain reseller and sell domain names to end customers, making revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are millions of currently active domain names, so this is an expanding marketing niche that you can become a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

A domain consists of two entities - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the SLD.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs include the most widely used domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code Top-Level Domains include two-character abbreviations that represent each country. Examples of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic Top-Level Domain or a country-code one, has a Registry - an institution that tackles the registrations and determines the requirements that each specific top-level domain name may have, including the duration of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact offer the domain name to customers and administer all domain name records.

Make Revenue From Trading Domains

Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that allow people to earn cash from selling domains to end users. If you sign up for such a program, you can start your own personal electronic business. Commonly, a domain name will be cheaper if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is purchased directly from the Registrar by an end client. The explanation is that resellers can reach more people in provinces or states where the Registrar may not be popular at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will cash in on that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain registration.

Sell Domain Names Under Your Own Trademark Name

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will obtain a web site hosting CP where you can set the prices for the individual top-level domain names that the Registrar provides. Most firms also provide billing transaction software and website layouts for your virtual storefront, and the automation of the entire procedure coupled with the large demand for domain names render the domain name reseller market niche so seductive. You will either receive a turn-key site and avail of the Registrar system to resell domain names, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your very own website and order form. Commonly, you have the opportunity to select between the two options, so it all depends on how practiced you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will sell on behalf of your personal brand and not under the Registrar's brand.

Make Profit From Reselling Webspace Hosting Services As Well

A reasonable addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting services as well. Thus, you can give a package deal to persons who would like to have their website and need both a domain name and a website hosting account. A few corporations supply 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 invoice transaction software to charge your customers. You can then offer TLDs and shared hosting packages to customers, and since they offer lots of different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to users from all around the globe.
