Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-growing community that furnishes new opportunities to make cash online. One of them is to be a domain reseller and sell domains to end clients, generating revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently active domains, so this is a growing marketing niche that you can become engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain name is composed of 2 entities - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we pick, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names include the most popular domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code top-level domain names involve 2-letter abbreviations that denote each country. Examples of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an organization that manages the registrations and determines the preconditions that each specific top-level domain name may have, including the length of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms work under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact sell the domain name to clients and handle all domain resource records.

Make Revenue From Offering Domains

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to gain profit from offering domain names to end clients. If you subscribe to such a program, you can start your very own personal web business. Normally, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is purchased directly from the Registrar by an end client. The explanation is that resellers can reach more users in regions or countries where the Registrar may not be famous whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will take advantage of that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain registration.

Resell Top-Level Domains On Behalf Of Your Very Own Personal Trademark Name

When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will have a website hosting CP where you can set the prices for the separate TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most firms also offer billing management software and design templates for your virtual shop, and the automation of the entire process combined with the proliferating demand for domain names render the domain name reseller business so tempting. You will either have a turn-key site and avail of the Registrar platform to resell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your very own personal web site and order form. Commonly, you have the option to choose between the 2 alternatives, so it all depends on how trained you are in these things. As a domain name reseller, you will do business under your very own personal brand name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Gain Money From Promoting Webspace Hosting Services As Well

A relevant supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts as well. In this way, you can give a package deal to people who would like to have their site and need both a domain and a website hosting plan. Certain corporations have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can order a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and charge-free invoicing software to charge your customers. You can then offer TLDs and shared web hosting plans to customers, and since they provide a lot of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to users from all over the world.
