Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-increasing platform that provides new options to make money on the Internet. One of them is to become a domain reseller and sell domain names to end customers, earning revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. Thousands of domains are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently active domains, so this is an enlarging business niche that you can be a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

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

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs include the most common domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains are composed of 2-character abbreviations that symbolize each country. Examples of country-code TLDs 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 institution that administers the registrations and sets the prerequisites that each particular top-level domain name may have, including the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the firms that actually offer the domain name to customers and administer all domain resource records.

Earn Profit From Offering Domains

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that allow people to earn cash from offering domains to end customers. If you register with such a program, you can build your own Internet business. Typically, a domain name will be cheaper if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end user. The explanation is that resellers can contact more customers in regions or states where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This implies 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 levies for the domain name registration.

Sell Domains On Behalf Of Your Personal Brand

When you register with a domain name reseller program, you will acquire a website hosting Control Panel where you can fix the prices for the individual TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most firms also offer invoice management software and web site layouts for your web shop, and the automation of the whole procedure together with the huge demand for domains make the domain name reseller business niche so seductive. You will either get a ready-for-use site and use the Registrar platform to sell domain names, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your own personal website and form for placing orders. Commonly, you have the opportunity to select between the 2 alternatives, so it all revolves around how accomplished you are in these things. As a domain name reseller, you will operate on behalf of your personal brand name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Gain Revenue From Promoting Site Hosting Packages As Well

A suitable supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans as well. Thus, you can offer a package deal to customers who would like to run their web page and require both a domain and a hosting plan. Particular companies provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can order a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and charge-free invoicing software to bill your customers. You can then sell domains and shared hosting plans to customers, and since they offer lots of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to persons from all around the globe.
