Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-increasing network that offers new possibilities to make money on the Internet. One of them is to become a domain reseller and sell domain names to end clients, earning profit 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 currently functioning domain names, so this is an enlarging marketing niche that you can be a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain name contains 2 parts - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take, for example, ".com" is the top-level domain name and "domain" is the SLD.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names comprise the most widely used domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code TLDs consist of two-letter abbreviations that denote each country. Examples of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an institution that manages the registrations and determines the requirements that each particular top-level domain name may impose, like the duration of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar firms work under the Registry. These are the companies that actually sell the domain name to customers and administer all DNS records.

Make Profit From Offering Domain Names

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that allow individuals to gain cash from offering domains to end users. If you register with such a program, you can set up your own personal Internet business. Regularly, a domain name will be cheaper if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end customer. The cause is that resellers can contact more people in regional communities or countries where the Registrar may not be famous at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will capitalize on that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain registration.

Resell Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Personal Trademark Name

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will have a web site hosting CP where you can fix the prices for the specific top-level domain names that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also provide billing software and web design skins for your web store, and the automation of the entire procedure together with the enormous demand for domain names render the domain reseller market niche so attractive. You will either get a ready-to-use site and utilize the Registrar system to sell domains, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your own online portal and form for placing orders. Typically, you have the opportunity to decide between the two alternatives, so it all depends on how skillful you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will work on behalf of your very own personal trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Earn Money From Offering Web Page Hosting Services As Well

An adequate supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts as well. Thus, you can offer a package deal to individuals who desire to build their online portal and require both a domain name and a website hosting account. Given companies provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can manage a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free-of-charge invoicing transaction software to bill your clients. You can then offer Top-Level Domains and shared website hosting plans to customers, and since they provide many diverse domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to users from all around the world.
