Domain reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-growing platform that offers new opportunities to gain money on the Web. One of these possibilities is to be a domain name reseller and offer domains to end customers, making profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. Thousands of domains are registered each day, and there are millions of presently active domains, so this is an enlarging trading niche that you can become involved in.

TLDs and SLDs

A domain name contains two components - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we pick domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the TLD 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 include the most widespread domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code top-level domain names are made of two-letter abbreviations that signify each country. Examples of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an institution that administers the registrations and determines the preconditions that each given top-level domain name may impose, like the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the firms that actually sell the domain name to customers and handle all DNS resource records.

Gain Money From Trading Domains

Many Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to make profit from selling domains to end customers. If you register with such a program, you can launch your very own personal web business. Usually, a domain will be cheaper if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is bought straight from the Registrar by an end customer. The explanation is that resellers can reach more clients in regional communities or states where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will profit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain registration.

Offer Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Own Brand

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will receive a website hosting CP where you can select the prices for the individual top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also provide billing management software and layouts for your virtual shop, and the automation of the whole process coupled with the immense demand for domain names render the domain name reseller business niche so seductive. You will either have a pre-developed site and utilize the Registrar platform to resell domain names, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your very own personal web site and order form. Generally, you have the opportunity to select between the 2 alternatives, so it all revolves around how proficient you are in these issues. As a domain reseller, you will do business on behalf of your personal brand name and not under the Registrar's brand.

Make Money From Offering Web Space Hosting Plans Too

An appropriate addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting services too. Thereby, you can give a package deal to people who would like to have their web page and require both a domain and a web hosting account. Given companies 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 cost-free invoice transaction software to bill your clients. You can then sell TLDs and shared website hosting plans to clients, and since they provide many diverse domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to users from all over the world.
