Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-flourishing network that delivers new possibilities to gain cash on the Internet. One of these options is to become a domain name reseller and sell domain names to end clients, gaining profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. 1000's of domains are registered every day, and there are millions of currently active domains, so this is an increasing marketing niche that you can become a part of.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain includes two components - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take, for example, ".com" is the top-level domain name and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the most popular domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code Top-Level Domains include 2-character 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 name or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an organization that tackles the registrations and sets the requirements that each given top-level domain name may involve, among them the duration of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the firms that actually offer the domain name to customers and manage all DNS resource records.

Gain Profit From Offering Domains

Many Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to make cash from offering domain names to end clients. If you register with such a program, you can start your own web business. Normally, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is purchased directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The explanation is that resellers can reach more clients in areas or states where the Registrar may not be known 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 customer pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.

Sell Top-Level Domains Under Your Very Own Personal Brand

When you subscribe to a domain reseller program, you will obtain a web space hosting Control Panel where you can settle the prices for the separate top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most companies also provide invoice transaction software and web site templates for your virtual store, and the automation of the whole process combined with the increasing demand for domains render the domain reseller business so attractive. You will either have a ready-for-use website and use the Registrar platform to resell domains, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your own personal website and form for placing orders. Commonly, you have the opportunity to pick between the two possibilities, so it all depends on how accomplished you are in these affairs. As a domain name reseller, you will sell under your own personal trademark name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Make Profit From Providing Site Hosting Accounts Too

An appropriate addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting services as well. Thereby, you can give a package deal to people who want to develop their web site and demand both a domain and a web space hosting plan. A few corporations supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can order a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free-of-charge invoice transaction software to charge your clients. You can then sell top-level domain names and shared website hosting accounts to clients, and since they offer lots of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to people from all around the globe.
