Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-enlarging network that furnishes new possibilities to earn money on the Internet. One of these possibilities is to become a domain name reseller and offer domains to end clients, generating revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. Thousands of domains are registered every day, and there are millions of presently active domains, so this is a growing marketing niche that you can be involved in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain is made of 2 entities - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the most common domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code top-level domain names comprise two-character abbreviations that symbolize each country. Examples of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic or a country-code one, has a Registry - an organization that manages the registrations and determines the preconditions that each specific top-level domain name may entail, such as the duration of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar firms work under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact offer the domain name to clients and handle all domain resource records.

Make Cash From Offering Domain Names

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to make money from offering domain names to end users. If you subscribe to such a program, you can kick off your own personal e-business. Regularly, a domain will cost less if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is purchased straight from the Registrar by an end customer. The cause is that resellers can contact more persons in local districts or states where the Registrar may not be famous whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will capitalize on that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain name registration.

Offer Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Very Own Personal Brand Name

When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will acquire a web hosting CP where you can settle the prices for the separate TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also provide invoice transaction software and website skins for your web storefront, and the automation of the whole procedure together with the immense demand for domains make the domain reseller market niche so attractive. You will either have a ready-for-use website and use the Registrar system to sell domains, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your own personal portal and order form. Generally, you have the opportunity to select between the two options, so it all depends on how skillful you are in these matters. As a domain name reseller, you will do business under your own personal trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Earn Money From Offering Site Hosting Accounts As Well

A reasonable addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans as well. In this way, you can give a package deal to individuals who would like to launch their site and require both a domain name and a site hosting account. A number of corporations supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can order a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free-of-charge invoice management software to charge your customers. You can then offer domain names and shared web hosting packages to clients, and since they provide many diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to clients from all around the world.
