Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-developing community that supplies new ways to make money online. One of them is to be a domain name reseller and offer domains to end customers, making revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered each day, and there are millions of currently functioning domain names, so this is a flowering trading niche that you can be engaged in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain contains 2 parts - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the SLD.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domains

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The gTLDs comprise the most widely used domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains are composed of two-character abbreviations that represent each country. Examples of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a gTLD or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an organization that deals with the registrations and sets the requirements that each specific top-level domain name may impose, among them the duration of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact offer the domain name to clients and administer all DNS records.

Gain Profit From Offering Domain Names

Numerous Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to earn revenue from offering domains to end clients. If you register with such a program, you can kickstart your own e-business. Typically, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end user. The cause is that resellers can contact more users in local regions or states where the Registrar may not be known at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will earn a profit 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 registration.

Trade Top-Level Domains On Behalf Of Your Very Own Personal Brand Name

When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will acquire a website hosting Control Panel where you can select the prices for the separate top-level domain names that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also offer billing software and web page layouts for your online store, and the automation of the entire process combined with the considerable demand for domain names make the domain name reseller market niche so tempting. You will either acquire a pre-developed web site and utilize the Registrar platform to sell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your very own personal web portal and order form. Normally, you have the opportunity to select between the two possibilities, so it all depends on how accomplished you are in these issues. As a domain name reseller, you will do business under your own personal brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Earn Revenue From Supplying Webspace Hosting Accounts Too

A suitable supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting packages as well. Thereby, you can offer a package deal to people who desire to make their site and demand both a domain name and a web site hosting account. A few companies provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, 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 management software to charge your clients. You can then sell domain names and shared website hosting packages to customers, and since they provide many diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to users from all over the globe.
