Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-flourishing platform that delivers new ways to make money on the Web. One of these possibilities is to be a domain name reseller and sell domains to end customers, making profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered each day, and there are millions of currently active domain names, so this is a flourishing trading niche that you can become involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

A domain consists of two parts - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take, for instance, ".com" is the top-level domain name and "domain" is the second-level domain name.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs include the most widely used domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code TLDs comprise 2-letter abbreviations that signify each country. Instances of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an institution that deals with the registrations and determines the preconditions that each specific Top-Level Domain may impose, such as the duration of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the companies that actually offer the domain name to customers and handle all DNS resource records.

Earn Money From Selling Domain Names

Many Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to gain money from offering domain names to end customers. If you sign up for such a program, you can set up your very own Internet business. Regularly, a domain name will be cheaper if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is purchased straight from the Registrar by an end client. The explanation is that resellers can contact more people in local communities or countries where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will take advantage of that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain name registration.

Resell Domains Under Your Very Own Personal Brand

When you register with a domain name reseller program, you will receive a web site hosting CP where you can determine the prices for the different Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also provide invoice transaction software and web templates for your online shop, and the automation of the whole process combined with the expanding demand for domain names make the domain name reseller business so attractive. You will either get a pre-built site 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 make your own personal web portal and order form. Traditionally, you have the opportunity to choose between the two options, so it all depends on how skilled you are in these issues. As a domain reseller, you will sell on behalf of your own trademark name and not under the Registrar's.

Gain Revenue From Promoting Web Space Hosting Services As Well

An appropriate addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting services as well. Thus, you can give a package deal to clients who want to make their web site and require both a domain and a web hosting account. A few companies offer such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can buy a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free-of-charge billing software to charge your customers. You can then sell Top-Level Domains and shared hosting plans to clients, and since they provide many diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to people from all around the globe.
