Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-developing network that provides new opportunities to make cash on the Internet. One of these ways is to become a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end users, earning profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. Thousands of domains are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently active domain names, so this is an increasing trading niche that you can become involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain name consists of 2 entities - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs include the most popular domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code TLDs are composed of 2-letter abbreviations that denote each country. Examples of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic Top-Level Domain or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an institution that tackles the registrations and determines the preconditions that each specific Top-Level Domain may include, among them the duration of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms work under the Registry. These are the firms that actually sell the domain name to customers and manage all domain records.

Earn Profit From Reselling Domains

Numerous Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to make money from offering domain names to end customers. If you sign up for such a program, you can set up your very own personal e-business. Typically, a domain name will cost less if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is bought straight from the Registrar by an end customer. The cause is that resellers can reach more people in regional communities or states where the Registrar may not be famous whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will take advantage of that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain registration.

Offer Domains On Behalf Of Your Own Personal Brand Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will acquire a site hosting Control Panel where you can choose the prices for the different top-level domain names that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also provide invoice transaction software and web design skins for your web storefront, and the automation of the entire process coupled with the enlarging demand for domain names render the domain reseller market so seductive. You will either receive a ready-made site and avail of the Registrar system to sell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your very own web portal and form for placing orders. Normally, you have the opportunity to pick between the two alternatives, so it all revolves around how skilled you are in these issues. As a domain reseller, you will work on behalf of your own brand and not under the Registrar's brand.

Gain Revenue From Offering Hosting Packages As Well

A logical addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans as well. Thereby, you can offer a package deal to customers who wish to establish their online portal and need both a domain name and a web hosting plan. Particular corporations provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can buy a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and cost-free invoicing transaction software to charge your clients. You can then offer domains and shared web hosting accounts to customers, and since they offer many different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to individuals from all around the world.
