Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-flourishing platform that delivers new possibilities to make money online. One of these ways is to become a domain reseller and sell domain names to end customers, making profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently functioning domain names, so this is a flowering marketing niche that you can be involved in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains

A domain is composed of 2 components - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the second-level domain name.

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the most widespread domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the ccTLDs are composed of 2-character abbreviations that symbolize 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 or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an institution that tackles the registrations and determines the requirements that each specific Top-Level Domain may involve, such as the duration 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 customers and handle all DNS resource records.

Earn Cash From Offering Domain Names

Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to gain cash from selling domain names to end customers. If you sign up for such a program, you can begin your own personal web business. Normally, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is purchased straight from the Registrar by an end customer. The cause is that resellers can contact more people in provinces or countries where the Registrar may not be famous whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will cash in on that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain registration.

Resell Top-Level Domains Under Your Own Personal Trademark Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will receive a Control Panel where you can choose the prices for the different TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most companies also offer invoice software and web site skins for your online storefront, and the automation of the whole process combined with the big demand for domains render the domain name reseller industry so tempting. You will either have a pre-made site and make use of the Registrar platform to resell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your very own personal online portal and order form. Typically, you have the opportunity to select between the two options, so it all revolves around how expert you are in these issues. As a domain name reseller, you will operate on behalf of your very own personal brand and not under the Registrar's brand.

Make Revenue From Reselling Web Hosting Services Too

A proper addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting packages as well. Thereby, you can offer a package deal to customers who want to build their website and require both a domain name and a hosting account. Given companies furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can purchase a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and charge-free invoice software to bill your customers. You can then offer TLDs and shared hosting accounts to clients, and since they provide a lot of different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to customers from all over the world.
