Domain reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-enlarging community that provides new ways to earn cash on the Web. One of these options is to be a domain name reseller and sell domains to end clients, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each day, and there are millions of presently functioning domain names, so this is an increasing marketing niche that you can become involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

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

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs include the best known domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains involve two-character abbreviations that stand for each country. Examples of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an organization that deals with the registrations and determines the requirements that each given top-level domain name may entail, among them the duration of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the companies that actually offer the domain name to clients and administer all domain name resource records.

Make Money From Offering Domain Names

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to gain money from selling domains to end clients. If you sign up for such a program, you can build your own personal online business. Typically, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end user. The explanation is that resellers can reach more people in areas or states where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will earn a profit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar levies for the domain registration.

Trade Top-Level Domains Under Your Own Personal Trademark Name

When you register with a domain reseller program, you will receive a webspace hosting CP where you can determine the prices for the various top-level domain names that the Registrar provides. Most firms also provide invoicing transaction software and templates for your web shop, and the automation of the whole process coupled with the large demand for domain names make the domain reseller business so tempting. You will either obtain a ready-for-use web site and make use of the Registrar system to resell domains, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your own personal web page and form for placing orders. Normally, you have the option to pick between the two alternatives, so it all revolves around how skilled you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will sell under your very own personal brand name and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Make Cash From Supplying Web Space Hosting Solutions Too

An excellent supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting services too. Thereby, you can give a package deal to customers who desire to establish their site and require both a domain and a web space hosting account. Some companies have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can buy a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and cost-free invoicing software to bill your clients. You can then offer Top-Level Domains and shared website hosting accounts to customers, and since they offer lots of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to individuals from all around the globe.
