Domain reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-increasing network that provides new options to make money on the Web. One of these options is to become a domain reseller and sell domains to end clients, generating revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently functioning domain names, so this is a flowering trading niche that you can become involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

A domain is made of two parts - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we pick, for example, ".com" is the top-level domain name and "domain" is the second-level domain name.

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The gTLDs comprise the most widely used domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code top-level domain names are made of two-letter abbreviations that stand for each country. Examples of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an organization that administers the registrations and determines the prerequisites that each specific top-level domain name may have, such as the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the firms that actually offer the domain name to customers and administer all domain name records.

Gain Cash From Offering Domain Names

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to gain revenue from offering domain names to end customers. If you sign up for such a program, you can kickstart your very own personal e-business. Usually, a domain name will cost less if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end user. The cause 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 take advantage of that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.

Trade Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Very Own Personal Brand

When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will acquire a website hosting Control Panel where you can choose the prices for the specific Top-Level Domains that the Registrar provides. Most firms also provide invoice management software and web site themes for your virtual store, and the automation of the whole process combined with the great demand for domain names render the domain reseller market niche so seductive. You will either obtain a pre-built site and avail of the Registrar platform to resell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your own personal portal and order form. Traditionally, you have the opportunity to pick between the 2 alternatives, so it all revolves around how advanced you are in these things. As a domain reseller, you will do business under your own personal brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's.

Earn Money From Promoting Web Space Hosting Plans Too

A good supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans too. Thereby, you can offer a package deal to customers who desire to develop their web site and demand both a domain name and a hosting plan. Certain corporations have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can purchase a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and free invoicing transaction software to bill your clients. You can then sell Top-Level Domains and shared web hosting plans to customers, and since they offer lots of different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to people from all over the globe.
