Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-enlarging community that offers new ways to earn cash online. One of them is to be a domain reseller and sell domain names to end clients, generating revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. 1000's of domains are registered each day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently active domain names, so this is an enlarging marketing niche that you can become involved in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain includes 2 parts - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take, for instance, ".com" is the top-level domain name and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domains

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs include the most common domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code TLDs comprise two-letter 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 TLD or a country-code one, has a Registry - an organization that deals with the registrations and determines the requirements that each specific Top-Level Domain may entail, including the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the corporations that actually offer the domain name to clients and handle all domain resource records.

Gain Cash From Trading Domain Names

Lots of Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to gain profit from selling domain names to end users. If you register with such a program, you can initiate your very own Internet business. Normally, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end client. The reason is that resellers can contact more clients in local regions or countries where the Registrar may not be famous 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 customer pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain registration.

Trade Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Very Own Trademark Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will get a web site hosting Control Panel where you can set the prices for the different top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most firms also offer invoicing software and website templates for your virtual storefront, and the automation of the whole procedure coupled with the immense demand for domains render the domain name reseller business niche so desirable. You will either have a ready-to-use site and make use of the Registrar platform to sell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your very own personal portal and form for placing orders. Normally, you have the opportunity to pick between the two options, so it all depends on how proficient you are in these issues. As a domain name reseller, you will work under your personal brand name and not under the Registrar's.

Earn Revenue From Supplying Web Hosting Packages Too

A good supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans too. In this way, you can offer a package deal to customers who desire to launch their web page and require both a domain name and a website hosting account. Given corporations provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can order a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and charge-free billing transaction software to bill your clients. You can then sell TLDs and shared hosting packages to customers, and since they offer many different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to people from all around the globe.
