Domain name reseller
The World Wide Web is an ever-developing community that generates new opportunities to gain money on the Internet. One of these ways is to become a domain name reseller and sell domains to end customers, generating profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. 1000's of domains are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently active domains, so this is an enlarging business niche that you can become engaged in.
TLDs and SLDs
A domain comprises 2 constituents - 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 name 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 comprise the most famous domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code top-level domain names contain 2-letter abbreviations that symbolize each country. Examples of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic Top-Level Domain or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an institution that administers the registrations and sets the requirements that each particular top-level domain name may involve, among them the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar companies operate under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact offer the domain name to customers and administer all domain records.
Gain Revenue From Offering Domains
Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that allow individuals to gain profit from selling domain names to end customers. If you subscribe to such a program, you can kick off your own electronic business. As a rule, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can reach more users in local regions or countries where the Registrar may not be famous at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will benefit 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.
Trade Top-Level Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Very Own Brand Name
When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will receive a hosting CP where you can settle the prices for the specific top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most firms also offer invoice transaction software and web design themes for your online storefront, and the automation of the whole procedure together with the considerable demand for domain names make the domain reseller business niche so attractive. You will either get a pre-built website and avail of the Registrar system to sell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your own web site and order form. Usually, you have the opportunity to decide between the two options, so it all revolves around how accomplished you are in these things. As a domain reseller, you will sell on behalf of your personal trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.
Earn Money From Reselling Web Hosting Packages As Well
A sensible addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts as well. In this way, you can offer a package deal to users who would like to make their web portal and need both a domain and a hosting account. Some corporations offer such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can run a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free invoicing transaction software to charge your customers. You can then offer domains and shared website hosting plans to customers, and since they offer plenty of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to users from all over the world.
