Domain reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-expanding community that offers new ways to gain money on the Web. One of these ways is to become a domain name reseller and sell domains to end users, making profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered every day, and there are millions of currently active domain names, so this is an enlarging marketing niche that you can become engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

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

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The gTLDs include the most widespread domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the ccTLDs include two-character abbreviations that signify each country. Examples of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic Top-Level Domain or a country-code one, has a Registry - an institution that manages the registrations and determines the preconditions that each given Top-Level Domain may have, among them the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the companies that actually offer the domain name to clients and handle all DNS resource records.

Earn Revenue From Selling Domains

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that allow people to earn cash from offering domains to end users. If you subscribe to such a program, you can set up your very own personal Internet business. Typically, a domain name will be cheaper if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end user. The explanation is that resellers can contact more people in local districts or states where the Registrar may not be known at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will earn a profit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain registration.

Sell Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Very Own Brand Name

When you subscribe to a domain reseller program, you will obtain a Control Panel where you can choose the prices for the various top-level domain names that the Registrar provides. Most companies also offer billing management software and web page themes for your virtual store, and the automation of the whole process coupled with the large demand for domains make the domain reseller market niche so desirable. You will either obtain a turn-key website 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 make your own personal web site and form for placing orders. Traditionally, you have the option to pick between the 2 possibilities, so it all revolves around how trained you are in these issues. As a domain reseller, you will do business on behalf of your own trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Make Money From Selling Site Hosting Accounts As Well

A reasonable addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting services too. Thus, you can offer a package deal to people who want to run their online portal and need both a domain name and a web space hosting package. A number of firms supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can manage a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and charge-free billing transaction software to charge your clients. You can then sell Top-Level Domains and shared website hosting packages to customers, and since they provide plenty of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to persons from all around the world.
