Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-expanding network that delivers new options to make cash on the Web. One of them is to become a domain reseller and offer domain names to end clients, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. Thousands of domains are registered each and every day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently functioning domains, so this is a flowering business niche that you can be engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

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

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs include the most common domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the ccTLDs comprise two-character abbreviations that represent 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 TLD or a country-code one, has a Registry - an institution that deals with the registrations and determines the preconditions that each given Top-Level Domain may impose, such as the duration of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the corporations that actually sell the domain name to customers and handle all domain resource records.

Make Money From Trading Domain Names

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that permit individuals to earn money from selling domains to end users. If you register with such a program, you can start your own personal online business. Regularly, a domain will cost less if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can reach more people in local regions or states where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will make a profit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain name registration.

Offer Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Own Trademark Name

When you subscribe to a domain reseller program, you will obtain a web page hosting Control Panel where you can settle the prices for the individual TLDs that the Registrar provides. Most companies also provide invoicing transaction software and web templates for your online shop, and the automation of the whole procedure together with the growing demand for domains render the domain reseller market niche so tempting. You will either acquire a ready-to-use web site and utilize 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 personal web site and order form. Typically, you have the opportunity to choose between the two options, so it all depends on how skilled you are in these issues. As a domain reseller, you will work on behalf of your personal brand and not under the Registrar's.

Make Cash From Providing Web Page Hosting Services Too

A proper addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting packages too. Thus, you can give a package deal to individuals who wish to launch their web portal and need both a domain and a hosting plan. Given corporations offer such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can purchase a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free-of-cost billing management software to charge your clients. You can then offer TLDs and shared hosting plans to clients, and since they provide lots of different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to persons from all over the world.
