Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-expanding platform that offers new possibilities to gain money online. One of these opportunities is to be a domain reseller and sell domain names to end users, making revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. Thousands of domains are registered each day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently functioning domain names, so this is a flowering business niche that you can be involved in.

TLDs and SLDs

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

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The gTLDs include the most widely used domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code TLDs are composed of 2-letter abbreviations that correspond to each country. Instances of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a gTLD or a country-code one, has a Registry - an organization that tackles the registrations and determines the preconditions that each concrete top-level domain name may include, among them the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact offer the domain name to clients and handle all domain name resource records.

Gain Money From Trading Domains

Numerous Registrars have reseller programs that permit individuals to gain revenue from selling domain names to end customers. If you subscribe to such a program, you can kickstart your very own personal e-business. Regularly, a domain name will cost less if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end client. The cause is that resellers can contact more clients in provinces or states where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will benefit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain registration.

Trade TLDs On Behalf Of Your Own Brand

When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will get a web hosting CP where you can choose the prices for the individual Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most firms also provide billing management software and web site layouts for your virtual storefront, and the automation of the entire process together with the flourishing demand for domain names render the domain reseller market niche so desirable. You will either acquire a pre-made site and use the Registrar system to resell domains, or they will grant 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 select between the two possibilities, so it all revolves around how experienced you are in these issues. As a domain name reseller, you will operate under your very own personal brand name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Gain Money From Promoting Web Site Hosting Solutions Too

A suitable addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions too. Thereby, you can give a package deal to people who desire to develop their web portal and demand both a domain name and a web page hosting account. A number of corporations have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can manage a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and free-of-cost invoice software to charge your customers. You can then sell top-level domain names and shared website hosting plans to clients, and since they offer plenty of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to clients from all over the world.
