Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-expanding network that delivers new opportunities to gain money on the Web. One of these options is to be a domain reseller and offer domains to end clients, generating revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each 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 increasing business niche that you can be involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain name involves two parts - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we pick, for example, ".com" is the top-level domain name 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 widely used domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code top-level domain names are composed of two-letter abbreviations that stand for each country. Instances of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a gTLD or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an organization that manages the registrations and sets the preconditions that each concrete Top-Level Domain may include, like the length of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact offer the domain name to clients and manage all DNS records.

Make Revenue From Offering Domain Names

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that permit individuals to gain revenue from selling domains to end clients. If you sign up for such a program, you can commence your own Internet business. Typically, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can reach more customers in regions or states where the Registrar may not be known at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will make a 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.

Trade Top-Level Domains Under Your Personal Brand Name

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will get a web hosting CP where you can settle the prices for the individual TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most companies also offer invoicing transaction software and website layouts for your web storefront, and the automation of the whole procedure coupled with the vast demand for domains make the domain name reseller industry so seductive. You will either obtain a ready-for-use web site and use the Registrar system to resell domain names, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your own personal portal and form for placing orders. Traditionally, you have the option to pick between the 2 alternatives, so it all depends on how advanced you are in these things. As a domain name reseller, you will sell on behalf of your personal brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Make Money From Reselling Hosting Solutions Too

A suitable addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans too. In this way, you can give a package deal to customers who want to launch their website and require both a domain name and a web site hosting account. Particular corporations supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can run a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free-of-charge billing management software to charge your customers. You can then offer domains and shared hosting plans to customers, and since they provide lots of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to people from all around the globe.
