Domain reseller

The Internet is an ever-enlarging platform that provides new options to gain cash online. One of these options is to be a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end users, generating profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. 1000's of domains are registered every day, and there are millions of presently active domains, so this is an enlarging trading niche that you can become engaged in.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

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

gTLDs and ccTLDs

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The gTLDs include the best known domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains contain 2-character abbreviations that symbolize each country. Examples of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a gTLD or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an organization that handles the registrations and sets the prerequisites that each concrete TLD may have, among them the length of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms work under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact offer the domain name to customers and handle all domain records.

Make Cash From Reselling Domain Names

A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to make profit from offering domain names to end users. If you register with such a program, you can start your very own web business. Commonly, a domain name 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 contact more persons in local communities or states where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will capitalize on that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain registration.

Trade TLDs Under Your Personal Trademark Name

When you sign up for a domain name reseller program, you will receive a webspace hosting Control Panel where you can choose the prices for the individual TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most firms also provide invoice software and web site templates for your virtual storefront, and the automation of the entire process combined with the proliferating demand for domains render the domain reseller industry so desirable. You will either have a turn-key website and utilize the Registrar platform to resell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your very own site and order form. Generally, you have the option to pick between the 2 options, so it all revolves around how practiced you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will do business on behalf of your personal brand name and not under the Registrar's.

Make Money From Providing Web Page Hosting Accounts Too

A proper supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting services too. Thus, you can give a package deal to individuals who desire to run their web site and demand both a domain and a webspace hosting plan. Particular companies furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can have 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 bill your clients. You can then sell domain names and shared web hosting accounts to customers, and since they provide many different domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to users from all around the globe.
