Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-enlarging community that supplies new options to gain money online. One of these ways is to become a domain reseller and sell domain names to end clients, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently functioning domain names, so this is an expanding business niche that you can be a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain name is made of 2 pieces - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take, for instance, ".com" is the top-level domain name and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs comprise the best known domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the ccTLDs contain 2-letter abbreviations that represent each country. Examples of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an organization that handles the registrations and sets the requirements that each specific TLD may involve, such as the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact sell the domain name to clients and administer all DNS resource records.

Make Profit From Trading Domains

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that permit individuals to make revenue from selling domains to end customers. If you register with such a program, you can kick off your very own personal web business. Usually, a domain will be cheaper if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is bought straight from the Registrar by an end user. The reason is that resellers can contact more people in provinces or countries where the Registrar may not be known at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will make a profit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain name registration.

Trade Top-Level Domains On Behalf Of Your Very Own Personal Trademark Name

When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will obtain a web hosting Control Panel where you can determine the prices for the different top-level domain names that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also offer invoicing software and web page skins for your web store, and the automation of the whole procedure coupled with the high demand for domains make the domain reseller business niche so seductive. You will either obtain a ready-to-use web site and use the Registrar platform to resell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your own personal site and form for placing orders. Generally, you have the opportunity to choose between the two options, so it all revolves around how skillful you are in these affairs. As a domain reseller, you will sell on behalf of your own trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Gain Profit From Trading Site Hosting Accounts Too

A sensible supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions too. Thus, you can give a package deal to users who desire to make their web site and need both a domain name and a web site hosting account. A number of companies provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can have a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and free-of-charge billing transaction software to charge your customers. You can then offer domains and shared web hosting packages to clients, and since they provide plenty of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to persons from all around the world.
