Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-enlarging network that delivers new possibilities to gain money on the Internet. One of these ways is to be a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end users, gaining profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. 1000's of domains are registered each day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently functioning domain names, so this is a blossoming trading niche that you can become involved in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain name comprises two parts - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we pick domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domains

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names include the most widely used domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code Top-Level Domains are made of 2-character abbreviations that symbolize each country. Instances of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic TLD or a country-code one, has a Registry - an organization that handles the registrations and sets the preconditions that each particular top-level domain name may entail, including the length of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar companies operate under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact sell the domain name to clients and handle all domain records.

Make Cash From Selling Domain Names

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to earn profit from selling domain names to end users. If you subscribe to such a program, you can kick off your own electronic business. Usually, 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 customer. The cause is that resellers can contact more clients in areas or states where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will cash in on that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.

Resell Top-Level Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Own Trademark Name

When you subscribe to a domain reseller program, you will get a web space hosting CP where you can determine the prices for the specific Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also offer invoice software and web site templates for your online store, and the automation of the whole procedure combined with the growing demand for domains make the domain reseller market niche so desirable. You will either receive a pre-developed website and make use of the Registrar system to sell domains, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your very own personal site and form for placing orders. Usually, you have the opportunity to pick between the 2 options, so it all revolves around how trained you are in these things. As a domain reseller, you will do business on behalf of your own personal brand name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Gain Cash From Trading Web Page Hosting Solutions Too

A sensible supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts too. Thus, you can offer a package deal to individuals who would like to have their web page and demand both a domain name and a hosting plan. A number of corporations supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can run a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and free billing transaction software to charge your customers. You can then sell Top-Level Domains and shared website hosting accounts to clients, and since they provide plenty of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to customers from all over the world.
