Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-growing network that delivers new opportunities to make cash on the Internet. One of these options is to become a domain name reseller and sell domains to end users, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. 1000's of domains are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently active domains, so this is a developing trading niche that you can become involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

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

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The gTLDs comprise the most conventional domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code top-level domain names include 2-letter abbreviations that denote each country. Examples of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic TLD or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an organization that handles the registrations and determines the requirements that each given TLD may have, like the duration of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact offer the domain name to customers and handle all domain name records.

Gain Revenue From Trading Domain Names

Plenty 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 establish your own personal online business. Commonly, a domain name will be cheaper if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can reach more persons in areas or states where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will take advantage of that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain name registration.

Resell Top-Level Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Own Brand

When you subscribe to a domain reseller program, you will receive a web hosting CP where you can select the prices for the individual Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also provide invoice transaction software and web site themes for your web store, and the automation of the entire process coupled with the increasing demand for domains make the domain name reseller business so attractive. You will either acquire a pre-built web site and avail of the Registrar platform to sell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your own web site and order form. Typically, you have the option to choose between the 2 possibilities, so it all depends on how proficient you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will operate under your own brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Gain Profit From Reselling Web Site Hosting Plans Too

A nice addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting packages as well. Thus, you can give a package deal to individuals who want to launch their web page and need both a domain name and a hosting plan. Particular corporations provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can run a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and free-of-charge invoice transaction software to bill your customers. You can then sell domain names and shared hosting packages to customers, and since they provide many diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to individuals from all around the globe.
