Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-developing network that supplies new options to earn money on the Internet. One of these opportunities is to be a domain name reseller and sell domain names to end customers, generating profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently active domains, so this is a blooming business niche that you can be engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

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

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs comprise the most common domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code top-level domain names involve 2-character abbreviations that stand for each country. Examples of country-code top-level domain names are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic TLD or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an organization that deals with the registrations and determines the requirements that each given top-level domain name may have, such as the duration of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact offer the domain name to customers and manage all domain records.

Earn Profit From Reselling Domain Names

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that allow individuals to gain revenue from offering domains to end clients. If you register with such a program, you can kick off your very own online business. Usually, a domain name will cost less if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end client. The cause is that resellers can reach more people in areas or states where the Registrar may not be famous whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will make a profit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar levies for the domain name registration.

Resell Top-Level Domains Under Your Personal Brand

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will acquire a hosting Control Panel where you can fix the prices for the separate top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also offer billing software and site templates for your web store, and the automation of the entire process together with the significant demand for domains make the domain name reseller market niche so seductive. You will either acquire a ready-for-use web site and avail of the Registrar system to sell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your very own personal online portal and order form. Generally, you have the option to choose between the two possibilities, so it all revolves around how proficient you are in these affairs. As a domain name reseller, you will do business under your very own brand and not under the Registrar's.

Gain Profit From Offering Web Page Hosting Packages Too

A logical supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts as well. Thereby, you can offer a package deal to people who would like to set up their web page and need both a domain name and a web page hosting plan. Particular firms have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can have a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and charge-free invoice management software to bill your customers. You can then sell domains and shared website hosting packages to clients, and since they offer a lot of different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to customers from all over the world.
