Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-developing platform that generates new ways to earn money on the Web. One of these options is to be a domain reseller and sell domains to end users, generating 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 millions of presently functioning domains, so this is a developing marketing niche that you can become engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain name is made of two constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs include the most popular domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains are made of 2-letter abbreviations that represent 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 TLD, has a Registry - an organization that deals with the registrations and sets the prerequisites that each concrete Top-Level Domain may impose, like the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar companies operate under the Registry. These are the firms that actually offer the domain name to clients and administer all domain name resource records.

Make Cash From Trading Domains

Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to make revenue from selling domains to end users. If you sign up for such a program, you can launch your own e-business. As a rule, 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 cause is that resellers can contact more persons in local communities or countries where the Registrar may not be popular at all. This implies 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 customer pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.

Trade TLDs Under Your Own Personal Brand Name

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will receive a site hosting CP where you can set the prices for the individual top-level domain names that the Registrar provides. Most firms also provide invoicing software and web page layouts for your virtual storefront, and the automation of the entire procedure combined with the growing demand for domains make the domain reseller industry so seductive. You will either acquire a pre-made website and utilize the Registrar system to resell domains, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your own portal and order form. Typically, you have the opportunity to decide between the 2 options, so it all depends on how expert you are in these affairs. As a domain reseller, you will work on behalf of your own personal brand and not under the Registrar's.

Make Revenue From Providing Webspace Hosting Accounts As Well

An adequate supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts too. Thereby, you can give a package deal to clients who would like to manage their website and need both a domain and a web hosting package. Some corporations supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can order a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free-of-charge billing management software to bill your clients. You can then offer domains and shared web hosting plans to customers, and since they provide a lot of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to individuals from all around the globe.
