Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-enlarging platform that provides new options to earn cash on the Internet. One of these opportunities is to become a domain name reseller and offer domains to end customers, 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 millions of currently active domain names, so this is an enlarging business niche that you can be a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain name comprises 2 pieces - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we pick, for instance, ".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 Domains comprise the most common domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code TLDs are composed of two-letter abbreviations that correspond to each country. Examples of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic TLD or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an institution that tackles the registrations and determines the prerequisites that each given top-level domain name may include, like the length of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the corporations that actually sell the domain name to clients and manage all DNS resource records.

Make Profit From Reselling Domain Names

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that allow individuals to earn cash from offering domains to end users. If you sign up for such a program, you can kick off your own personal Internet business. Normally, a domain name will cost less if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is purchased directly from the Registrar by an end client. The explanation is that resellers can contact more customers in regional districts or states where the Registrar may not be popular at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will earn a profit from 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 Domains Under Your Personal Brand

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will acquire a webspace hosting CP where you can determine the prices for the different Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most firms also offer invoice management software and website layouts for your virtual shop, and the automation of the entire procedure together with the vast demand for domain names render the domain name reseller business so tempting. You will either get a pre-built website and use the Registrar system to resell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your own personal web site and order form. Typically, you have the option to decide between the 2 possibilities, so it all revolves around how experienced you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will work under your own brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Make Money From Offering Web Site Hosting Packages Too

An excellent supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions as well. Thus, you can give a package deal to clients who desire to run their web site and demand both a domain name and a hosting package. Certain companies have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can have a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and cost-free invoicing software to bill your customers. You can then offer TLDs and shared website hosting plans to customers, and since they offer a lot of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to individuals from all over the world.
