Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-developing platform that furnishes new possibilities to gain cash on the Internet. One of these opportunities is to become a domain reseller and offer domain names to end customers, making revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each day, and there are millions of currently functioning domains, so this is an expanding marketing niche that you can become engaged in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain comprises 2 pieces - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take, for example, ".com" is the top-level domain name and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs include the most famous domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains comprise two-character abbreviations that represent each country. Instances 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 or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an organization that administers the registrations and determines the prerequisites that each given Top-Level Domain may have, including the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the corporations that actually offer the domain name to clients and manage all DNS resource records.

Earn Revenue From Offering Domain Names

Many Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to gain profit from offering domains to end clients. If you subscribe to such a program, you can commence your own web business. Normally, a domain will cost less if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is purchased directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The cause is that resellers can reach more persons in local districts or states where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will benefit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain registration.

Resell Top-Level Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Very Own Brand Name

When you register with a domain reseller program, you will receive a webspace hosting CP where you can fix the prices for the various top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most firms also provide invoicing transaction software and web design templates for your virtual shop, and the automation of the whole process together with the immense demand for domains render the domain name reseller market so alluring. You will either acquire a pre-made website and use the Registrar system to resell domain names, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your own web portal and order form. Typically, you have the option to select between the two alternatives, so it all depends on how skillful you are in these matters. As a domain name reseller, you will work under your very own personal trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Make Money From Reselling Web Site Hosting Plans Too

A nice supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions too. In this way, you can offer a package deal to clients who would like to have their online portal and need both a domain and a web site hosting plan. Particular corporations supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can order a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and charge-free billing management software to bill your clients. You can then sell TLDs and shared website hosting packages to clients, and since they offer plenty of different domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to individuals from all over the world.
