Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-enlarging community that furnishes new ways to gain money on the Web. One of these possibilities is to be a domain name reseller and sell domain names to end customers, gaining profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each 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 a flowering business niche that you can be a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain name involves 2 constituents - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take, for example, ".com" is the top-level domain name 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 generic TLDs include the most famous domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code TLDs include two-character abbreviations that symbolize each country. Instances of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic Top-Level Domain or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an institution that is responsible for the registrations and determines the preconditions that each particular Top-Level Domain may have, such as the length of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact sell the domain name to clients and administer all domain name records.

Make Profit From Trading Domain Names

Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to earn cash from selling domains to end customers. If you sign up for such a program, you can commence your own personal online business. Generally, a domain name will cost less if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is bought straight from the Registrar by an end user. The reason is that resellers can contact more users in provinces or countries where the Registrar may not be popular at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will benefit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain registration.

Sell Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Personal Brand Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will get a hosting CP where you can settle the prices for the various TLDs that the Registrar provides. Most companies also provide invoicing software and web skins for your web store, and the automation of the entire procedure together with the strong demand for domains make the domain name reseller market niche so alluring. You will either get a pre-developed website and make use of the Registrar system to sell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your own online portal and order form. Typically, you have the option to decide between the 2 possibilities, so it all revolves around how experienced you are in these matters. As a domain name reseller, you will do business on behalf of your personal brand name and not under the Registrar's.

Gain Money From Offering Hosting Solutions Too

A suitable addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting packages too. Thus, you can give a package deal to people who would like to make their site and require both a domain and a website hosting plan. Particular corporations 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 reseller account and charge-free invoice management software to charge your clients. You can then sell domain names and shared hosting plans to customers, and since they provide lots of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to users from all over the globe.
