Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-growing network that generates new options to earn cash on the Web. One of them 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 millions of presently functioning domains, so this is an enlarging marketing niche that you can be engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

A domain involves two parts - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we pick, for instance, ".com" is the top-level domain name and "domain" is the second-level domain name.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains comprise the best known domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the ccTLDs are composed of 2-character abbreviations that stand for each country. Instances of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an organization that deals with the registrations and sets the preconditions that each particular top-level domain name may have, such as the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms work under the Registry. These are the companies that actually offer the domain name to clients and administer all domain resource records.

Make Profit From Selling Domain Names

Lots of Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to gain money from offering domain names to end customers. If you subscribe to such a program, you can set up your own personal web business. Usually, a domain will be more inexpensive 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 persons in local communities or countries where the Registrar may not be known at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will cash in on that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.

Resell TLDs On Behalf Of Your Own Brand Name

When you register with a domain name reseller program, you will acquire a site hosting CP where you can choose the prices for the various Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most firms also provide invoice software and website layouts for your web storefront, and the automation of the entire procedure coupled with the flourishing demand for domain names render the domain reseller business niche so seductive. You will either get a pre-made site and avail of the Registrar system to resell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your very own web page and order form. Normally, you have the opportunity to pick between the two options, so it all revolves around how practiced you are in these matters. As a domain name reseller, you will operate on behalf of your very own brand name and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Gain Money From Promoting Web Space Hosting Solutions As Well

A nice addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans too. In this way, you can give a package deal to persons who wish to run their online portal and need both a domain name and a webspace hosting package. Some companies furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can run a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and cost-free invoice transaction software to bill your customers. You can then sell domain names and shared web hosting accounts to clients, and since they provide many different domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to customers from all around the world.
