Domain reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-increasing platform that supplies new ways to make money on the Web. One of these options is to become a domain reseller and sell domains to end clients, making revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. Thousands of domains are registered each day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently functioning domains, so this is a flourishing marketing niche that you can be involved in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain is made of two components - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we pick, 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 comprise the most common domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the ccTLDs contain two-letter abbreviations that signify each country. Instances of country-code top-level domain names are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a country-code one, has a Registry - an organization that is responsible for the registrations and sets the preconditions that each concrete Top-Level Domain may impose, like the length of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar companies operate under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact sell the domain name to customers and handle all domain name resource records.

Gain Cash From Selling Domain Names

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that allow people to make profit from selling domains to end customers. If you register with such a program, you can start your own personal online business. Normally, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can contact more customers in regional communities or countries where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will make a profit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.

Sell Domain Names Under Your Very Own Trademark Name

When you subscribe to a domain reseller program, you will receive a web space hosting CP where you can settle the prices for the individual top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also offer invoice management software and web templates for your virtual storefront, and the automation of the entire procedure combined with the vast demand for domain names render the domain reseller industry so seductive. You will either get a pre-made web site and use the Registrar platform to resell domains, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your own website and form for placing orders. Generally, you have the option to choose between the two options, so it all depends on how advanced you are in these issues. As a domain reseller, you will do business under your very own trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Make Profit From Promoting Web Space Hosting Solutions As Well

A sensible addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions too. Thereby, you can offer a package deal to clients who wish to run their website and demand both a domain name and a web site hosting account. Certain corporations furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can order a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and cost-free invoice software to bill your clients. You can then sell Top-Level Domains and shared hosting packages to customers, and since they offer a lot of different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to users from all over the world.
