Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-growing platform that provides new options to gain cash online. One of these opportunities is to be a domain name reseller and sell domain names to end clients, 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 currently functioning domain names, so this is a developing trading niche that you can be a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

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

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs comprise the most common domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code top-level domain names consist of 2-character abbreviations that denote each country. Examples of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic Top-Level Domain or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an organization that manages the registrations and sets the preconditions that each concrete TLD may contain, like the length of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact offer the domain name to customers and administer all domain resource records.

Earn Profit From Offering Domains

Lots of Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to earn profit from offering domains to end clients. If you subscribe to such a program, you can build your own e-business. As a rule, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end client. The explanation is that resellers can contact more people in local communities or states where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will cash in on that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain name registration.

Sell Domains Under Your Own Personal Trademark Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will have a web page hosting Control Panel where you can determine the prices for the different top-level domain names that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also provide invoice transaction software and web page themes for your virtual store, and the automation of the whole process combined with the huge demand for domains make the domain name reseller industry so desirable. You will either receive a pre-built website and use the Registrar platform to sell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your own personal web page and form for placing orders. Commonly, you have the option to pick between the two possibilities, so it all depends on how trained you are in these affairs. As a domain reseller, you will sell under your own brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Gain Profit From Trading Web Hosting Services Too

A logical supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans as well. In this way, you can give a package deal to customers who want to create their online portal and demand both a domain name and a web hosting account. A few corporations supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can buy a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and free-of-charge billing transaction software to bill your customers. You can then offer Top-Level Domains and shared hosting plans to customers, and since they provide plenty of different domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to individuals from all over the globe.
