Domain reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-enlarging community that generates new ways to gain money online. One of these possibilities is to become a domain reseller and sell domains to end customers, gaining profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. 1000's of domains are registered every day, and there are millions of currently active domain names, so this is an increasing trading niche that you can be engaged in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain name contains two entities - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we pick, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the second-level domain name.

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The gTLDs include the most common domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the ccTLDs contain two-letter abbreviations that symbolize each country. Instances 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 one, has a Registry - an organization that handles the registrations and determines the prerequisites that each given top-level domain name may have, among them the length of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar firms work under the Registry. These are the firms that actually sell the domain name to customers and manage all DNS resource records.

Make Revenue From Reselling Domain Names

Lots of Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to gain cash from offering domains to end users. If you sign up for such a program, you can build your very own web business. Typically, 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 user. The explanation is that resellers can contact more persons in local communities or countries where the Registrar may not be known at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will make a profit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain name registration.

Trade Domains On Behalf Of Your Very Own Personal Trademark Name

When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will obtain a web site hosting Control Panel where you can choose the prices for the individual Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most firms also provide invoicing software and templates for your online store, and the automation of the whole procedure coupled with the vast demand for domain names render the domain reseller business so tempting. You will either have a pre-developed website and avail of the Registrar platform to sell domain names, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your own personal online portal and order form. Traditionally, you have the opportunity to decide between the two alternatives, so it all revolves around how skillful you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will sell on behalf of your very own brand name and not under the Registrar's.

Gain Money From Providing Web Page Hosting Packages As Well

A perfect addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting services as well. Thereby, you can give a package deal to users who want to have their web page and demand both a domain and a site hosting account. A number of companies furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can purchase a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and cost-free invoicing transaction software to bill your clients. You can then sell top-level domain names and shared web hosting plans to clients, and since they provide a lot of different domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to clients from all around the world.
