Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-enlarging system that provides new opportunities to make money on the Internet. One of these ways is to be a domain reseller and sell domain names to end clients, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. Thousands of domains are registered each and every day, and there are millions of currently functioning domains, so this is a growing marketing niche that you can become engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain includes 2 components - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take, for example, ".com" is the TLD 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 famous domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the ccTLDs involve 2-character abbreviations that denote each country. Examples 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 tackles the registrations and sets the preconditions that each particular top-level domain name may impose, like the duration of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact offer the domain name to clients and manage all domain name resource records.

Make Profit From Reselling Domains

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to earn money from offering domains to end customers. If you subscribe to such a program, you can establish your very own personal online business. Generally, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The explanation is that resellers can contact more people in provinces or states where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will cash in on that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain registration.

Resell Domains Under Your Personal Trademark Name

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will obtain a site hosting CP where you can choose the prices for the different top-level domain names that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also provide billing management software and web site themes for your online shop, and the automation of the whole process together with the increasing demand for domain names render the domain reseller business so tempting. You will either obtain a ready-to-use website and make use of the Registrar system to resell domains, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your very own web site and order form. Commonly, you have the opportunity to choose between the 2 options, so it all depends on how experienced you are in these issues. As a domain name reseller, you will operate under your personal brand name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Make Profit From Trading Web Hosting Solutions As Well

An appropriate supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions as well. In this way, you can give a package deal to customers who wish to run their web page and need both a domain and a web page hosting plan. A few corporations have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can order a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free invoice transaction software to charge your customers. You can then offer top-level domain names and shared hosting accounts to customers, and since they offer lots of different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to people from all over the globe.
