Domain reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-growing platform that generates new opportunities to earn cash on the Web. One of these possibilities is to become a domain reseller and offer domains to end clients, making profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. 1000's of domains are registered each day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently functioning domains, so this is a blooming trading niche that you can be involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

A domain is composed of 2 parts - 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 SLD.

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains comprise the most popular domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code top-level domain names are composed of two-letter abbreviations that correspond to each country. Instances of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a gTLD or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an institution that is responsible for the registrations and sets the preconditions that each specific Top-Level Domain may include, including the length of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the firms that actually offer the domain name to customers and manage all domain name resource records.

Gain Cash From Offering Domain Names

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to gain profit from selling domains to end clients. If you subscribe to such a program, you can kick off your own Internet business. As a rule, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end customer. The explanation is that resellers can contact more clients in regions or states where the Registrar may not be famous at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will capitalize 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.

Offer Domains On Behalf Of Your Very Own Brand

When you register with a domain name reseller program, you will have a web site hosting CP where you can settle the prices for the different top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most companies also provide billing management software and site templates for your virtual storefront, and the automation of the entire procedure combined with the big demand for domain names make the domain name reseller market niche so attractive. You will either have a ready-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 create your very own portal and order form. Normally, you have the opportunity to select between the 2 possibilities, so it all depends on how expert you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will operate under your own brand name and not under the Registrar's.

Earn Revenue From Trading Web Site Hosting Accounts As Well

A perfect supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting packages as well. Thereby, you can offer a package deal to people who desire to run their web page and need both a domain name and a website hosting package. A number of companies offer such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can buy a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and cost-free invoice software to charge your clients. You can then sell domains and shared web hosting plans to customers, and since they provide plenty of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to individuals from all around the globe.
