Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-developing community that furnishes new ways to gain cash online. One of these ways is to be a domain reseller and offer domains to end customers, earning profit 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 millions of presently active domain names, so this is an increasing trading niche that you can be involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

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

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The gTLDs include the most conventional domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code TLDs consist of 2-character abbreviations that denote each country. Instances of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an organization that administers the registrations and sets the prerequisites that each particular top-level domain name may have, such as the duration of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact offer the domain name to clients and manage all domain name records.

Earn Profit From Selling Domains

Many Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to gain money from selling domain names to end customers. If you sign up for such a program, you can launch your own web business. Generally, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end user. The cause is that resellers can contact more users in provinces or states 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 client pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain registration.

Resell TLDs Under Your Own Trademark Name

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will acquire a hosting CP where you can choose the prices for the various Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most firms also provide billing software and skins for your virtual storefront, and the automation of the whole process together with the expanding demand for domains make the domain name reseller industry so desirable. You will either obtain a pre-made web site and avail of 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 very own personal web page and form for placing orders. Normally, you have the option to choose between the two alternatives, so it all depends on how proficient you are in these affairs. As a domain reseller, you will sell on behalf of your very own trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Gain Cash From Providing Hosting Solutions Too

A suitable supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions too. In this way, you can offer a package deal to persons who desire to build their online portal and demand both a domain and a web site hosting account. A number of corporations offer such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can run a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and cost-free invoice transaction software to charge your customers. You can then sell TLDs and shared website hosting plans to customers, and since they offer many diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to customers from all over the globe.
