Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-enlarging platform that generates new options to make cash on the Internet. One of these possibilities is to be a domain name reseller and offer domains to end clients, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. 1000's of domains are registered each and every day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently active domain names, so this is a blossoming business niche that you can become engaged in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain name comprises 2 components - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we pick, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names comprise the most famous domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code TLDs include two-character abbreviations that denote each country. Instances of country-code top-level domain names 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, has a Registry - an institution that deals with the registrations and sets the prerequisites that each particular TLD may contain, such as the duration of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact sell the domain name to clients and manage all DNS resource records.

Make Revenue From Selling Domain Names

Many Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to make cash from selling domain names to end clients. If you register with such a program, you can initiate your own personal electronic business. Usually, a domain will cost less 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 reach more persons in local communities 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 revenue will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain name registration.

Trade Domain Names Under Your Own Brand

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will receive a web space hosting CP where you can set the prices for the specific TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most companies also offer billing software and web page skins for your online shop, and the automation of the entire procedure coupled with the huge demand for domains make the domain reseller market niche so tempting. You will either receive a ready-made site and use the Registrar platform to resell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your own web portal and form for placing orders. Generally, you have the opportunity to choose between the two possibilities, so it all revolves around how expert you are in these affairs. As a domain reseller, you will work on behalf of your very own brand and not under the Registrar's brand.

Earn Revenue From Providing Web Hosting Services As Well

A relevant supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts as well. Thus, you can offer a package deal to clients who desire to have their web site and require both a domain name and a website hosting plan. A number of companies offer such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can buy a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and cost-free invoice transaction software to charge your clients. You can then offer Top-Level Domains and shared web hosting plans to clients, and since they offer many different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to people from all around the world.
