Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-enlarging platform that delivers new possibilities to gain cash on the Web. One of these possibilities is to become a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end customers, generating revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered every day, and there are millions of presently active domain names, so this is a blossoming trading niche that you can be involved in.

TLDs and SLDs

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

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domains

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs comprise the most common domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains involve 2-character 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 TLD or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an organization that handles the registrations and determines the prerequisites that each particular Top-Level Domain may have, like the length of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact sell the domain name to customers and handle all DNS resource records.

Gain Money From Reselling Domains

Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that allow individuals to make cash from offering domains to end clients. If you subscribe to such a program, you can launch your very own Internet business. Commonly, a domain name will cost less if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end user. The explanation is that resellers can reach more individuals in provinces or states where the Registrar may not be famous whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will benefit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain name registration.

Trade Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Personal Brand Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will receive a web hosting Control Panel where you can settle the prices for the different TLDs that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also provide invoice software and design layouts for your virtual shop, and the automation of the entire procedure together with the immense demand for domain names make the domain name reseller business so seductive. You will either obtain a pre-built website and make use of the Registrar platform to resell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your own personal portal and order form. Typically, you have the option to choose between the 2 alternatives, so it all depends on how accomplished you are in these things. As a domain reseller, you will work on behalf of your very own personal brand and not under the Registrar's brand.

Earn Money From Trading Web Site Hosting Plans Too

An adequate supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts too. In this way, you can give a package deal to people who desire to set up their web portal and need both a domain and a webspace hosting plan. A few companies furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can run a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and free-of-cost billing software to charge your customers. You can then sell domains and shared website hosting plans to clients, and since they offer lots of different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to individuals from all over the world.
