Domain name reseller
The Internet is an ever-enlarging community that furnishes new opportunities to make cash on the Internet. One of these opportunities is to be a domain reseller and sell domain names to end users, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently functioning domains, so this is a thriving trading niche that you can be engaged in.
TLDs and SLDs
A domain involves 2 constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take domain.com, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the second-level domain name.
Generic and Country-Code TLDs
The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the most conventional domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code top-level domain names comprise 2-character abbreviations that symbolize each country. Examples of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an institution that manages the registrations and determines the preconditions that each concrete top-level domain name may entail, such as the duration of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the firms that actually sell the domain name to customers and manage all domain name records.
Make Revenue From Offering Domain Names
Lots of Registrars have reseller programs that permit individuals to earn profit from offering domain names to end customers. If you sign up for such a program, you can commence your own personal web business. Normally, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end client. The reason is that resellers can reach more customers in local districts or states 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 profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar levies for the domain registration.
Resell Domains Under Your Own Trademark Name
When you register with a domain name reseller program, you will receive a web page hosting CP where you can determine the prices for the individual Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most firms also offer invoice management software and design themes for your online shop, and the automation of the whole process combined with the rising demand for domains make the domain name reseller industry so attractive. You will either get a pre-made website and make use of the Registrar system to resell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your very own personal web page and order form. Commonly, you have the opportunity to pick between the two alternatives, so it all depends on how practiced you are in these things. As a domain name reseller, you will work under your personal brand name and not under the Registrar's.
Gain Profit From Supplying Web Page Hosting Accounts Too
A proper supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans too. Thus, you can offer a package deal to people who wish to set up their site and need both a domain and a web hosting plan. Some corporations have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can order a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and charge-free billing software to bill your customers. You can then sell domains and shared web hosting packages to customers, and since they provide a lot of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to users from all over the world.
