Domain name reseller
The Internet is an ever-expanding community that supplies new opportunities to make cash 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. Thousands of domain names are registered each day, and there are millions of currently active domains, so this is an increasing business niche that you can be engaged in.
TLDs and SLDs
A domain is made of 2 parts - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take domain.com, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the SLD.
Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names
The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names comprise the most conventional domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code TLDs are made of 2-character abbreviations that represent each country. Examples of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic TLD or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an organization that manages the registrations and sets the prerequisites that each given top-level domain name may entail, including the length of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the firms that actually offer the domain name to clients and handle all DNS records.
Earn Profit From Reselling Domain Names
Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to gain profit from selling domains to end clients. If you subscribe to such a program, you can commence your own online business. Commonly, a domain name will cost less if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is purchased straight from the Registrar by an end customer. The cause is that resellers can contact more users in regional communities or countries where the Registrar may not be famous whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will profit from 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.
Sell Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Own Personal Brand Name
When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will obtain a site hosting Control Panel where you can fix the prices for the various TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most firms also provide invoicing transaction software and web design themes for your online store, and the automation of the entire procedure together with the enlarging demand for domain names render the domain reseller business so seductive. You will either acquire a pre-made website and make use of the Registrar system to sell domains, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your own web site and order form. Normally, you have the opportunity to pick between the 2 options, so it all depends on how skillful you are in these affairs. As a domain reseller, you will work on behalf of your own personal brand name and not under the Registrar's.
Make Profit From Selling Web Hosting Plans As Well
A proper supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions as well. In this way, you can give a package deal to users who would like to launch their web page and demand both a domain name and a web space hosting plan. Some firms provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can manage a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and free-of-charge invoice management software to charge your clients. You can then sell domains and shared hosting accounts to customers, and since they provide a lot of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to users from all over the world.
