Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-enlarging system that provides new opportunities to make cash online. One of these options is to become a domain reseller and offer domains to end customers, gaining 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 1 000 000's of presently active domains, so this is an increasing trading niche that you can be involved in.

TLDs and SLDs

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

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domains

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the most common domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the ccTLDs include two-letter abbreviations that represent each country. Examples of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic TLD or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an institution that handles the registrations and determines the requirements that each specific top-level domain name may include, among them the length of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies operate under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact offer the domain name to clients and manage all domain name resource records.

Earn Cash From Offering Domain Names

Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to make cash from offering domains to end users. If you sign up for such a program, you can launch your very own personal web business. Commonly, a domain name will cost less if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end client. The cause is that resellers can contact more customers in provinces or states where the Registrar may not be famous at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will cash in on that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain registration.

Sell Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Own Brand Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will get a web hosting Control Panel where you can determine the prices for the various Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also offer billing transaction software and design themes for your web shop, and the automation of the whole process coupled with the expanding demand for domains make the domain reseller industry so desirable. You will either acquire a ready-made web site and use the Registrar system to sell domain names, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your own personal web portal and order form. Normally, you have the opportunity to pick between the two options, so it all revolves around how skilled you are in these issues. As a domain name reseller, you will sell under your own brand and not under the Registrar's brand.

Earn Money From Selling Web Page Hosting Plans Too

A relevant supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans too. Thus, you can give a package deal to persons who want to set up their online portal and require both a domain and a web page hosting package. Particular corporations furnish 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 cost-free invoice management software to bill your customers. You can then sell top-level domain names and shared hosting accounts to customers, and since they offer plenty of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to users from all around the globe.
