Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-growing community that delivers new possibilities to make cash online. One of these ways is to be a domain name reseller and offer domains to end users, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are millions of currently active domains, so this is an expanding marketing niche that you can become involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain name is composed of two pieces - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the second-level domain name.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the most widespread domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code top-level domain names comprise 2-character abbreviations that stand for each country. Instances of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an organization that tackles the registrations and sets the requirements that each given top-level domain name may involve, including the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact sell the domain name to customers and administer all domain resource records.

Earn Money From Reselling Domain Names

Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that allow individuals to earn cash from selling domains to end clients. If you subscribe to such a program, you can commence your very own personal web business. Regularly, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can reach more customers in local communities or countries where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. 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 client pays and the one that the Registrar levies for the domain name registration.

Resell Top-Level Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Very Own Trademark Name

When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will get a website hosting CP where you can determine the prices for the individual Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most companies also offer billing transaction software and web design themes for your online shop, and the automation of the entire procedure coupled with the big demand for domain names make the domain reseller market so desirable. You will either receive a pre-developed website and avail of the Registrar system to resell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your very own personal website and order form. Traditionally, you have the opportunity to decide between the 2 options, so it all revolves around how practiced you are in these matters. As a domain name reseller, you will work under your very own trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Gain Profit From Offering Hosting Accounts As Well

A logical addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting services too. In this way, you can give a package deal to clients who wish to have their site and need both a domain and a hosting account. Certain companies provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can have a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and charge-free invoice transaction software to charge your clients. You can then offer domain names and shared web hosting packages to customers, and since they provide many diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to individuals from all over the globe.
