Domain reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-growing platform that furnishes new opportunities to make money on the Web. One of them is to become a domain name reseller and sell domains to end clients, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently active domains, so this is a developing trading niche that you can become involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

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

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains comprise the most famous domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the ccTLDs consist of two-letter abbreviations that correspond to each country. Examples of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic Top-Level Domain or a country-code one, has a Registry - an institution that administers the registrations and sets the preconditions that each particular top-level domain name may have, such as the duration of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar firms work under the Registry. These are the firms that actually offer the domain name to clients and handle all domain records.

Make Money From Selling Domain Names

Many Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to gain money from selling domains to end customers. If you register with such a program, you can establish your very own web business. Regularly, a domain will be cheaper if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is purchased straight from the Registrar by an end client. The reason is that resellers can reach more users in regional districts or states where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will cash in on that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain registration.

Resell Domain Names Under Your Personal Brand Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will obtain a web page hosting CP where you can choose the prices for the individual Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most companies also offer billing management software and templates for your online shop, and the automation of the entire procedure together with the flourishing demand for domains render the domain name reseller business niche so tempting. You will either get a ready-for-use site and make use of the Registrar system to resell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your very own personal website and order form. Usually, you have the opportunity to choose between the 2 options, so it all depends on how accomplished you are in these things. As a domain name reseller, you will work on behalf of your own trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Make Cash From Supplying Webspace Hosting Solutions As Well

A suitable supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions too. Thus, you can offer a package deal to clients who desire to create their web site and demand both a domain name and a website hosting plan. A number of companies provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can purchase a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and cost-free billing transaction software to charge your customers. You can then offer domain names and shared website hosting packages to customers, and since they offer plenty of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to users from all around the globe.
