Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-increasing system that supplies new opportunities to earn cash on the Web. One of these options is to become a domain name reseller and offer domains to end customers, generating profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. 1000's of domains are registered each day, and there are millions of currently functioning domain names, so this is a blooming business niche that you can become engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain is composed of two components - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we pick, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names include the most famous domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code TLDs include 2-character abbreviations that symbolize each country. Instances of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an organization that manages the registrations and determines the requirements that each particular top-level domain name may impose, among them the length of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the companies that actually offer the domain name to clients and manage all DNS records.

Earn Revenue From Offering Domain Names

Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that allow individuals to earn profit from selling domains to end customers. If you subscribe to such a program, you can set up your own Internet business. Regularly, a domain will cost less if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end client. The cause is that resellers can reach more customers in local communities or states where the Registrar may not be known at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will cash in 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 registration.

Resell Top-Level Domains On Behalf Of Your Own Brand Name

When you register with a domain name reseller program, you will receive a Control Panel where you can determine the prices for the separate Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also offer invoicing software and website skins for your online storefront, and the automation of the entire process together with the swelling demand for domains render the domain name reseller market so attractive. You will either have a pre-built website and make use of the Registrar system to sell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your very own online portal and order form. Generally, you have the option to pick between the 2 options, so it all depends on how accomplished you are in these issues. As a domain reseller, you will work on behalf of your very own brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Earn Money From Selling Web Page Hosting Packages As Well

A relevant addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting services as well. In this way, you can give a package deal to persons who would like to develop their web portal and demand both a domain and a site hosting plan. Some companies provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can order a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and free-of-charge invoice software to charge your customers. You can then sell domain names and shared web hosting packages to clients, and since they offer lots of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to people from all around the globe.
