Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-flourishing system that offers new ways to gain cash on the Web. One of these options is to be a domain reseller and offer domain names to end clients, making profit 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 presently functioning domain names, so this is an expanding business niche that you can be engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

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

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names comprise the most popular domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code Top-Level Domains include two-character abbreviations that denote each country. Examples of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an organization that tackles the registrations and determines the requirements that each particular Top-Level Domain may involve, among them the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact offer the domain name to customers and manage all domain records.

Make Cash From Trading Domain Names

Lots of Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to make profit from offering domain names to end clients. If you subscribe to such a program, you can begin your own Internet business. Generally, a domain name will cost less if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end user. The reason is that resellers can reach more clients in provinces or states where the Registrar may not be known at all. This means 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 charges for the domain registration.

Offer TLDs On Behalf Of Your Own Trademark Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will get a CP where you can determine the prices for the individual Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also offer invoicing software and web page themes for your virtual store, and the automation of the entire process combined with the enormous demand for domains make the domain reseller market so desirable. You will either get a pre-made web site and use the Registrar system to sell 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 form for placing orders. Normally, you have the option to decide between the two alternatives, so it all revolves around how skillful you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will work on behalf of your very own personal brand name and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.

Gain Cash From Offering Webspace Hosting Services As Well

A perfect supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans as well. Thus, you can give a package deal to people who desire to create their web page and require both a domain and a website hosting package. Particular firms offer such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can buy a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and free-of-cost invoicing software to charge your customers. You can then sell domain names and shared hosting plans to clients, and since they offer plenty of diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to users from all over the globe.
