Domain name reseller

The Internet is an ever-developing platform that delivers new opportunities to make money on the Internet. One of these ways is to be a domain reseller and offer domains to end users, earning profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. Thousands of domains are registered each and every day, and there are millions of presently active domains, so this is a blossoming marketing 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 name (SLD). If we pick, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the SLD.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domains

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs comprise the most widely used domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the ccTLDs involve 2-character abbreviations that denote each country. Examples of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a gTLD or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an organization that handles the registrations and sets the requirements that each specific TLD may involve, 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 sell the domain name to clients and manage all DNS records.

Gain Profit From Offering Domains

Many Registrars have reseller programs that allow people to make profit from offering domain names to end customers. If you subscribe to such a program, you can kickstart your own electronic business. Usually, a domain will cost less if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is purchased straight from the Registrar by an end user. The reason is that resellers can contact more clients in local regions or states where the Registrar may not be known at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will take advantage of that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.

Resell TLDs Under Your Own Brand

When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will obtain a site hosting Control Panel where you can choose the prices for the different TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also provide billing management software and web skins for your virtual shop, and the automation of the entire procedure coupled with the strong demand for domains make the domain name reseller industry so desirable. You will either obtain a ready-for-use website and make use of the Registrar platform to sell domain names, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your own site and order form. Typically, you have the opportunity to choose between the two alternatives, so it all revolves around how proficient you are in these affairs. As a domain name reseller, you will sell on behalf of your very own brand name and not under the Registrar's.

Earn Money From Selling Website Hosting Solutions Too

A sensible addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting packages too. In this way, you can give a package deal to persons who desire to develop their web page and require both a domain and a web page hosting package. Given corporations supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can order a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and cost-free billing software to charge your customers. You can then sell top-level domain names and shared web hosting packages to customers, and since they offer a lot of different domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to clients from all over the globe.
