Domain reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-flourishing network that furnishes new options to earn cash on the Internet. One of these options is to become a domain reseller and sell domains to end users, gaining profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. Thousands of domains are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently active domain names, so this is an enlarging business niche that you can become involved in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain comprises 2 components - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we pick, for instance, ".com" is the top-level domain name and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names comprise the best known domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the ccTLDs consist of two-character abbreviations that represent each country. Examples of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a country-code one, has a Registry - an organization that deals with the registrations and determines the requirements that each concrete top-level domain name may impose, including the length of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the firms that actually offer the domain name to customers and handle all DNS resource records.

Earn Revenue From Offering Domains

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that allow people to earn revenue from offering domains to end users. If you sign up for such a program, you can kick off your very own electronic business. Regularly, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end user. The explanation is that resellers can reach more people in local districts or countries where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will cash in on that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar levies for the domain registration.

Trade Top-Level Domains Under Your Own Brand

When you subscribe to a domain reseller program, you will have a web page hosting Control Panel where you can select the prices for the individual Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also offer invoicing software and site skins for your web shop, and the automation of the entire procedure coupled with the towering demand for domains make the domain reseller business niche so attractive. You will either obtain a ready-to-use web site and make use of the Registrar platform to resell domain names, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your very own personal site and order form. Typically, you have the option to select between the 2 alternatives, so it all depends on how advanced you are in these affairs. As a domain reseller, you will do business under your own personal brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Gain Cash From Trading Site Hosting Packages As Well

A good addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting services too. Thus, you can offer a package deal to individuals who would like to set up their site and demand both a domain and a web site hosting account. Certain corporations supply 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 reseller account and free-of-charge billing software to charge your clients. You can then offer TLDs and shared website hosting accounts to clients, and since they provide a lot of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to clients from all over the world.
