Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-flourishing platform that generates new opportunities to gain money on the Internet. One of these ways is to be a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end clients, earning revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. Thousands of domains are registered every day, and there are millions of currently active domain names, so this is a growing business niche that you can be involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

A domain name is made of two entities - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we pick domain.com, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names comprise the most conventional domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains include 2-character abbreviations that correspond to each country. Examples of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an organization that manages the registrations and determines the prerequisites that each given Top-Level Domain may have, such as the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact sell the domain name to clients and administer all domain name resource records.

Make Cash From Reselling Domain Names

Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to gain profit from selling domains to end users. If you subscribe to such a program, you can kick off your own personal online business. Normally, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can reach more customers in local districts or countries where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will earn a profit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.

Resell Domains Under Your Own Personal Brand

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will have a web space hosting Control Panel where you can fix the prices for the different TLDs that the Registrar provides. Most companies also offer invoicing transaction software and website layouts for your web storefront, and the automation of the entire procedure combined with the expanding demand for domain names render the domain name reseller business niche so attractive. You will either receive a ready-for-use web site and avail of the Registrar platform to sell domains, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your very own personal portal and form for placing orders. Commonly, you have the option to pick between the 2 options, so it all revolves around how experienced you are in these affairs. As a domain reseller, you will sell under your own personal brand name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Make Revenue From Promoting Web Page Hosting Solutions Too

A logical addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting packages too. Thereby, you can give a package deal to individuals who want to create their web portal and demand both a domain and a site hosting package. A few corporations provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can run a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free-of-cost billing management software to charge your clients. You can then sell Top-Level Domains and shared website hosting packages to customers, and since they provide lots of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to people from all around the globe.
