Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-growing network that generates new possibilities to make cash on the Web. One of these possibilities is to be a domain name reseller and sell domains to end users, generating profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. Thousands of domains are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently active domains, so this is a flowering business niche that you can become involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

A domain name involves 2 components - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The gTLDs include the most common domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code Top-Level Domains are composed of two-letter abbreviations that denote each country. Examples of country-code top-level domain names are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an organization that tackles the registrations and sets the preconditions that each specific Top-Level Domain may entail, such as the duration of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact sell the domain name to clients and manage all DNS records.

Make Money From Selling Domains

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that allow individuals to make revenue from offering domains to end customers. If you sign up for such a program, you can kickstart your very own personal web business. Normally, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is bought straight from the Registrar by an end client. The explanation is that resellers can contact more clients in regional communities or states where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will capitalize on that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar levies for the domain registration.

Offer Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Own Brand

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will acquire a hosting Control Panel where you can fix the prices for the separate top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most companies also provide invoice transaction software and site themes for your web shop, and the automation of the whole process together with the swelling demand for domain names make the domain reseller market so alluring. You will either receive a ready-for-use site and use the Registrar platform to resell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your own website and order form. Normally, you have the option to pick between the two possibilities, so it all depends on how practiced you are in these matters. As a domain name reseller, you will operate under your own personal brand and not under the Registrar's brand.

Gain Profit From Reselling Website Hosting Plans Too

An appropriate addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts too. Thus, you can offer a package deal to people who wish to run their web portal and need both a domain and a web space hosting plan. A few companies provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can have a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free-of-cost billing transaction software to charge your clients. You can then sell domains and shared website hosting plans to customers, and since they provide a lot of different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to persons from all around the world.
