Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-increasing platform that provides new possibilities to earn money on the Web. One of these opportunities is to be a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end customers, earning revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are millions of presently active domain names, so this is an expanding trading niche that you can become involved in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain consists of two pieces - 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 SLD.

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The gTLDs comprise the most popular domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the ccTLDs comprise 2-letter abbreviations that represent each country. Examples of country-code Top-Level Domains 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 name, has a Registry - an organization that is responsible for the registrations and sets the prerequisites that each specific Top-Level Domain may impose, such as the duration of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact sell the domain name to customers and handle all DNS resource records.

Gain Money From Reselling Domain Names

Numerous Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to gain revenue from selling domains to end users. If you subscribe to such a program, you can kickstart your very own web 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 reason is that resellers can reach more customers in areas or countries where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will profit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain registration.

Resell Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Very Own Personal Brand Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will have a web space hosting CP where you can set the prices for the different Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most companies also offer billing transaction software and website layouts for your virtual store, and the automation of the whole procedure combined with the enormous demand for domains make the domain reseller business so desirable. You will either obtain a ready-for-use 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 set up your own personal web portal and form for placing orders. Normally, you have the opportunity to pick between the two possibilities, so it all revolves around how trained you are in these issues. As a domain reseller, you will do business under your own trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Gain Cash From Offering Web Hosting Services As Well

A good addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans as well. In this way, you can offer a package deal to users who would like to launch their web site and need both a domain and a web site hosting account. Given corporations supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can buy a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free-of-charge billing management software to charge your customers. You can then offer domain names and shared web hosting packages to customers, and since they offer lots of different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to users from all over the world.
