Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-developing network that delivers new ways to make cash online. One of these options is to be a domain name reseller and sell domain names to end clients, 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 presently active domain names, so this is a developing trading niche that you can be a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

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

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names comprise the most common domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the ccTLDs comprise 2-character abbreviations that denote each country. Instances of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic TLD or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an organization that manages the registrations and determines the preconditions that each concrete Top-Level Domain may involve, including the length of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact sell the domain name to customers and handle all domain resource records.

Make Cash From Offering Domain Names

Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that allow individuals to earn profit from selling domain names to end clients. If you sign up for such a program, you can start your very own personal e-business. Commonly, a domain will cost less if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end client. The explanation is that resellers can reach more persons in regional communities or countries where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will profit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain registration.

Resell Top-Level Domains Under Your Very Own Personal Brand

When you register with a domain name reseller program, you will obtain a web hosting Control Panel where you can determine the prices for the various TLDs that the Registrar provides. Most companies also offer billing transaction software and design layouts for your online storefront, and the automation of the entire procedure together with the flourishing demand for domains render the domain reseller market so desirable. You will either have a ready-made web site and utilize 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 own personal site and form for placing orders. Typically, you have the option to pick between the two possibilities, so it all depends on how skilled you are in these matters. As a domain name reseller, you will work under your very own personal brand name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Gain Cash From Offering Web Site Hosting Accounts Too

An appropriate supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts too. In this way, you can offer a package deal to persons who would like to manage their web portal and require both a domain name and a webspace hosting plan. Given companies supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can order a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free-of-charge billing management software to bill your clients. You can then offer domain names and shared hosting plans to customers, and since they offer lots of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to individuals from all around the world.
