Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-expanding system that delivers new options to make cash on the Web. One of these possibilities is to be a domain name reseller and sell domains to end clients, earning profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. 1000's of domains are registered each and every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently active domain names, so this is an enlarging business niche that you can become a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain comprises two constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the most common domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code TLDs consist of 2-letter abbreviations that represent each country. Instances of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an institution that deals with the registrations and sets the prerequisites that each concrete top-level domain name may contain, among them the length of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact offer the domain name to customers and handle all domain name records.

Make Profit From Offering Domains

Lots of Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to make cash from offering domain names to end clients. If you sign up for such a program, you can commence your very own personal e-business. Usually, a domain name will cost less if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is purchased straight from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can reach more persons in local regions or countries where the Registrar may not be famous whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will capitalize on that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar levies for the domain name registration.

Sell Domain Names Under Your Very Own Personal Brand

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will receive a web hosting CP where you can select the prices for the different Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most companies also offer invoice software and web site themes for your online shop, and the automation of the entire procedure together with the high demand for domain names render the domain name reseller business so alluring. You will either acquire a pre-developed site and avail of the Registrar system to resell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your own web page and form for placing orders. Normally, you have the option to pick between the 2 possibilities, so it all revolves around how trained you are in these matters. As a domain name reseller, you will sell on behalf of your personal trademark name and not under the Registrar's.

Gain Cash From Selling Web Page Hosting Accounts Too

An excellent supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions as well. Thus, you can give a package deal to customers who would like to launch their online portal and need both a domain and a hosting plan. Certain companies have 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 reseller account and charge-free billing software to charge your clients. You can then offer domains and shared website hosting accounts to customers, and since they provide plenty of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to persons from all over the globe.
