Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-flourishing community that furnishes new options to make cash on the Web. One of them is to be a domain reseller and sell domain names to end customers, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. Thousands of domains are registered each and every day, and there are millions of currently functioning domain names, so this is a flowering trading niche that you can become a part of.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain includes 2 parts - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take domain.com, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD.

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names comprise the most common domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the ccTLDs include two-letter abbreviations that correspond to each country. Examples of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic TLD or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an institution that manages the registrations and determines the preconditions that each concrete Top-Level Domain may have, such as the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms work under the Registry. These are the companies that actually sell the domain name to clients and manage all domain resource records.

Gain Revenue From Trading Domains

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that allow individuals to earn revenue from selling domain names to end users. If you sign up for such a program, you can set up your very own online business. As a rule, a domain will cost less if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can contact more customers in regional districts or countries where the Registrar may not be popular at all. This implies 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 client pays and the one that the Registrar levies for the domain name registration.

Sell Domains On Behalf Of Your Very Own Brand

When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will have a web page hosting Control Panel where you can select the prices for the specific TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most firms also provide invoicing transaction software and web themes for your online shop, and the automation of the entire process together with the significant demand for domains make the domain reseller business niche so tempting. You will either have a pre-made web site and use the Registrar system to sell domains, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your own website and order form. Commonly, you have the opportunity to select between the 2 alternatives, so it all depends on how proficient you are in these matters. As a domain name reseller, you will operate under your own brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Make Profit From Reselling Website Hosting Services As Well

A good addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting services as well. In this way, you can give a package deal to clients who wish to make their site and require both a domain and a webspace hosting package. A few corporations furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can have a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and charge-free billing management software to bill your clients. You can then sell Top-Level Domains and shared website hosting packages to customers, and since they offer plenty of different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to clients from all over the globe.
