Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-developing network that delivers new opportunities to earn cash online. One of these opportunities is to become a domain reseller and offer domain names to end customers, earning profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. 1000's of domains are registered every day, and there are millions of presently active domains, so this is a growing marketing niche that you can be a part of.

TLDs and SLDs

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

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the best known domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the ccTLDs include 2-character abbreviations that symbolize each country. Examples of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic TLD or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an institution that deals with the registrations and sets the requirements that each particular TLD may contain, among them the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms work under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact offer the domain name to clients and handle all domain name records.

Earn Profit From Trading Domain Names

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to gain profit from offering domain names to end users. If you register with such a program, you can start your very own personal e-business. Normally, a domain will cost less if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The cause is that resellers can contact more persons in provinces or countries where the Registrar may not be known at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will capitalize on that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain name registration.

Offer TLDs On Behalf Of Your Very Own Personal Brand Name

When you subscribe to a domain reseller program, you will receive a webspace hosting Control Panel where you can select the prices for the various Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most firms also offer invoicing transaction software and web design skins for your online store, and the automation of the whole process combined with the flourishing demand for domain names render the domain reseller market so tempting. You will either get a pre-built web site and avail of the Registrar system to resell domains, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your own personal portal and form for placing orders. Usually, you have the opportunity to pick between the two alternatives, so it all revolves around how experienced you are in these issues. As a domain reseller, you will do business on behalf of your very own brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Gain Money From Supplying Hosting Services As Well

An adequate supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts as well. Thus, you can offer a package deal to users who wish to build their site and demand both a domain and a web space hosting account. Given firms supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can buy a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free billing management software to bill your clients. You can then sell TLDs and shared website hosting plans to customers, and since they provide plenty of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to users from all around the world.
