Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-growing system that furnishes new options to gain money on the Web. One of these possibilities is to be a domain reseller and sell domain names to end clients, generating profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently functioning domains, so this is a blooming trading niche that you can become a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

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

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names comprise the most common domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code Top-Level Domains include two-character abbreviations that signify each country. Examples of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an organization that tackles the registrations and determines the preconditions that each particular Top-Level Domain may impose, such as the duration of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the firms that actually offer the domain name to clients and handle all DNS resource records.

Make Profit From Reselling Domain Names

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that permit individuals to gain revenue from offering domain names to end clients. If you sign up for such a program, you can establish your own online business. Usually, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end user. The cause is that resellers can reach more users in local regions or countries where the Registrar may not be famous 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 client pays and the one that the Registrar levies for the domain name registration.

Resell TLDs On Behalf Of Your Own Personal Trademark Name

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will acquire a web hosting CP where you can set the prices for the various Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also provide invoice software and site templates for your virtual store, and the automation of the whole process coupled with the immense demand for domain names render the domain name reseller industry so seductive. You will either receive a ready-to-use web site and utilize the Registrar platform to resell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your own site and order form. Normally, you have the opportunity to choose between the two alternatives, so it all depends on how trained you are in these things. As a domain name reseller, you will work on behalf of your own personal brand name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Earn Profit From Reselling Web Site Hosting Accounts As Well

A perfect supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting packages too. In this way, you can offer a package deal to customers who desire to launch their web portal and require both a domain and a web space hosting account. Particular corporations furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can purchase a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free-of-cost invoicing transaction software to bill your customers. You can then offer Top-Level Domains and shared website hosting accounts to customers, and since they provide lots of different domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to users from all over the world.
