Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-enlarging platform that provides new ways to earn money online. One of these options is to be a domain reseller and sell domains to end customers, making revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently active domains, so this is a flourishing business niche that you can be a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

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

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names comprise the best known domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code TLDs involve two-letter abbreviations that symbolize 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 or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an organization that manages the registrations and determines the preconditions that each particular TLD may entail, like the duration of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact sell the domain name to customers and manage all DNS records.

Make Cash From Selling Domain Names

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to make revenue from offering domains to end customers. If you subscribe to such a program, you can kickstart your own personal Internet business. Commonly, a domain will be cheaper if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end client. The reason is that resellers can contact more persons in local districts or states where the Registrar may not be famous at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will 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.

Sell Top-Level Domains On Behalf Of Your Personal Brand Name

When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will get a website hosting CP where you can choose the prices for the separate TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most companies also provide invoicing software and design layouts for your virtual shop, and the automation of the whole procedure coupled with the strong demand for domains make the domain reseller market niche so desirable. You will either have a ready-for-use website and utilize the Registrar system to sell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your very own website and order form. Usually, you have the option to select between the two alternatives, so it all depends on how practiced you are in these issues. As a domain reseller, you will operate under your own brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Make Cash From Offering Site Hosting Solutions As Well

A relevant supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting packages too. In this way, you can give a package deal to individuals who desire to have their web site and require both a domain name and a hosting package. A number of firms offer such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can have a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free-of-cost invoice management software to charge your clients. You can then sell domain names and shared web hosting plans to clients, and since they offer a lot of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to users from all over the world.
