Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-growing platform that supplies new possibilities to gain money on the Internet. One of them is to be a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end clients, gaining profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered each day, and there are millions of presently functioning domain names, so this is an increasing marketing niche that you can be involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain name includes 2 constituents - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we pick, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the second-level domain name.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs include the best known domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains comprise two-letter abbreviations that represent each country. Examples of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an organization that tackles the registrations and sets the prerequisites that each concrete TLD may involve, such as the duration of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the corporations that actually sell the domain name to clients and manage all domain records.

Make Cash From Offering Domains

Lots of Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to earn revenue from selling domain names to end users. If you sign up for such a program, you can kick off your own web business. Normally, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end client. The reason is that resellers can contact more persons in areas or states where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will benefit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain registration.

Resell Domain Names Under Your Very Own Personal Brand

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will receive a web site hosting Control Panel where you can choose the prices for the specific Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most firms also provide billing transaction software and web layouts for your web shop, and the automation of the entire process coupled with the strong demand for domain names make the domain reseller business so tempting. You will either obtain a ready-to-use web site and avail of the Registrar system to resell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your very own online portal and form for placing orders. Generally, you have the option to decide between the two alternatives, so it all depends on how practiced you are in these issues. As a domain reseller, you will do business under your very own personal brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Gain Money From Supplying Web Site Hosting Services Too

A suitable addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting services as well. Thereby, you can offer a package deal to clients who would like to launch their website and demand both a domain name and a webspace hosting package. Given firms provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can order a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and free invoicing software to charge your clients. You can then offer domains and shared hosting accounts to customers, and since they provide a lot of different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to individuals from all over the world.
