Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-growing system that generates new opportunities to gain money on the Internet. One of these ways is to be a domain reseller and offer domains to end customers, making profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. 1000's of domains are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently functioning domain names, so this is an increasing marketing niche that you can be involved in.

TLDs and SLDs

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

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domains

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names include the best known domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code Top-Level Domains contain 2-character abbreviations that signify each country. Instances 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 Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an institution that deals with the registrations and determines the preconditions that each concrete top-level domain name may impose, among them the duration of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact offer the domain name to clients and administer all DNS resource records.

Gain Profit From Reselling Domain Names

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to gain money from selling domains to end users. If you sign up for such a program, you can set up your own Internet business. As a rule, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end user. The explanation is that resellers can contact more persons in local communities or states where the Registrar may not be popular at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will benefit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain registration.

Resell Domain Names Under Your Own Trademark Name

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will get a Control Panel where you can choose the prices for the different top-level domain names that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also offer invoice software and themes for your virtual store, and the automation of the whole procedure together with the considerable demand for domains make the domain name reseller business niche so tempting. You will either acquire a ready-to-use website and make use of the Registrar platform to sell domain names, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your own personal portal and order form. Traditionally, you have the opportunity to choose between the 2 alternatives, so it all revolves around how experienced you are in these things. As a domain name reseller, you will operate under your own brand name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Earn Revenue From Offering Web Page Hosting Packages As Well

A proper addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting services as well. In this way, you can give a package deal to persons who desire to launch their online portal and demand both a domain and a web hosting account. Particular corporations supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can run a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free-of-charge billing management software to charge your clients. You can then offer Top-Level Domains and shared website hosting packages to customers, and since they offer lots of different domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to users from all around the world.
