Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-growing community that provides new possibilities to make money online. One of them is to become a domain reseller and offer domains to end clients, earning revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. 1000's of domains are registered every day, and there are millions of presently active domains, so this is a developing marketing niche that you can become a part of.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain name contains two constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we pick, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names comprise the most common domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the ccTLDs include 2-letter abbreviations that represent each country. Examples of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an organization that administers the registrations and sets the requirements that each given Top-Level Domain may entail, among them the length of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact sell the domain name to customers and handle all domain records.

Gain Money From Reselling Domain Names

Many Registrars have reseller programs that allow people to gain cash from selling domain names to end clients. If you register with such a program, you can kick off your very own personal Internet business. As a rule, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can contact more users in areas or states where the Registrar may not be popular at all. This implies 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.

Trade Top-Level Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Personal Brand

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will get a CP where you can fix the prices for the separate Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also provide billing software and web page skins for your web storefront, and the automation of the entire procedure combined with the great demand for domain names render the domain name reseller industry so desirable. You will either acquire a pre-made site and utilize the Registrar platform to sell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your very own site and order form. Usually, you have the opportunity to choose between the two options, so it all depends on how practiced you are in these affairs. As a domain reseller, you will do business on behalf of your very own personal trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Gain Money From Supplying Web Page Hosting Services Too

An appropriate addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions too. In this way, you can give a package deal to individuals who wish to launch their website and need both a domain name and a web space hosting plan. Given corporations provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can run a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free invoicing transaction software to bill your clients. You can then offer Top-Level Domains and shared website hosting packages to customers, and since they offer many different domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to customers from all over the world.
