Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-developing system that provides new possibilities to earn cash on the Internet. One of these ways is to be a domain name reseller and offer domains to end customers, making revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. Thousands of domains are registered every day, and there are millions of presently functioning domain names, so this is a developing trading niche that you can be engaged in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain involves two entities - 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.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domains

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs comprise the most widespread domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code TLDs involve two-character abbreviations that signify each country. Examples of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic TLD or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an organization that tackles the registrations and sets the preconditions that each concrete Top-Level Domain may include, including the length of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the companies that actually sell the domain name to customers and manage all DNS resource records.

Make Money From Offering Domain Names

Many Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to gain cash from offering domain names to end users. If you register with such a program, you can build your own personal web business. Normally, 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 user. The reason is that resellers can reach more people in regional districts or states where the Registrar may not be famous at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will profit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.

Offer Top-Level Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Own Personal Trademark Name

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will get a web space hosting Control Panel where you can set the prices for the various Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also offer invoicing software and web skins for your virtual storefront, and the automation of the entire procedure together with the proliferating demand for domains render the domain reseller market so attractive. You will either get a turn-key site and make use of the Registrar system to sell domains, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your very own personal web site and order form. Usually, you have the opportunity to decide between the two alternatives, so it all revolves around how accomplished you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will work on behalf of your own trademark name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Make Profit From Offering Web Page Hosting Packages As Well

A relevant supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting packages too. Thereby, you can give a package deal to people who wish to develop their online portal and demand both a domain and a webspace hosting package. Some firms have 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 name reseller account and free-of-charge invoice management software to charge your clients. You can then sell domains and shared web hosting plans to customers, and since they offer lots of different domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to persons from all over the globe.
