Domain reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-increasing platform that supplies new opportunities to gain money online. One of these possibilities is to become a domain reseller and offer domain names to end users, gaining profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered every day, and there are millions of currently functioning domain names, so this is a blooming marketing niche that you can become a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

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

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains comprise the most widely used domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code TLDs 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 TLD, has a Registry - an organization that deals with the registrations and sets the requirements that each specific top-level domain name may contain, including the duration of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact sell the domain name to customers and manage all DNS resource records.

Gain Money From Selling Domain Names

Many Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to earn money from offering domains to end users. If you register with such a program, you can launch your very own personal online business. Typically, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end client. The cause is that resellers can contact more individuals in regions or states where the Registrar may not be famous at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will profit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.

Offer Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Own Personal Brand

When you subscribe to a domain reseller program, you will receive a web space hosting CP where you can set the prices for the different top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most companies also offer billing transaction software and web page skins for your online shop, and the automation of the whole process combined with the proliferating demand for domains render the domain name reseller industry so seductive. You will either have a ready-to-use site and utilize the Registrar system to sell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your very own personal site and form for placing orders. Generally, you have the opportunity to decide between the 2 possibilities, so it all revolves around how experienced you are in these things. As a domain reseller, you will do business under your very own brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Make Money From Offering Site Hosting Services As Well

A suitable supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions too. Thus, you can offer a package deal to people who desire to make their web portal and need both a domain name and a web page hosting account. Given corporations supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can buy a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free invoice transaction software to charge your clients. You can then offer Top-Level Domains and shared web hosting accounts to clients, and since they offer a lot of different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to users from all around the world.
