Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-increasing platform that provides new ways to make money on the Web. One of these opportunities is to be a domain reseller and sell domains to end clients, earning revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are millions of presently functioning domain names, so this is an expanding business niche that you can become engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

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

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the best known domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code TLDs include two-letter abbreviations that signify each country. Examples of country-code top-level domain names are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a country-code one, has a Registry - an institution that administers the registrations and determines the preconditions that each given Top-Level Domain may involve, like the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact sell the domain name to clients and manage all DNS records.

Make Revenue From Offering Domains

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to earn revenue from offering domain names to end users. If you subscribe to such a program, you can set up your very own personal online business. Usually, a domain will be cheaper if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is purchased directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can contact more clients in provinces or countries where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will earn a profit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain registration.

Resell Domain Names Under Your Very Own Personal Brand

When you register with a domain reseller program, you will have a web hosting CP where you can select the prices for the different Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also provide billing software and web site skins for your web storefront, and the automation of the entire process coupled with the considerable demand for domain names make the domain reseller industry so attractive. You will either have a pre-developed website and avail of the Registrar platform to sell 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. Commonly, you have the opportunity to decide between the 2 possibilities, so it all revolves around how trained you are in these matters. As a domain name reseller, you will do business under your own personal brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Gain Profit From Offering Hosting Plans As Well

An excellent supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans too. In this way, you can offer a package deal to clients who desire to make their website and demand both a domain name and a web space hosting package. Given corporations offer such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can buy a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and free-of-charge billing transaction software to charge your customers. You can then offer top-level domain names and shared web hosting plans to customers, and since they provide many different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to persons from all over the world.
