Domain name reseller
The Internet is an ever-developing platform that supplies new opportunities to gain cash on the Web. One of these opportunities is to become a domain reseller and sell domains to end users, generating profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered each day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently functioning domain names, so this is an expanding business niche that you can be a part of.
TLDs and SLDs
A domain name contains two constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take domain.com, for example, ".com" is the top-level domain name and "domain" is the SLD.
Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names
The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the most common domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the ccTLDs comprise two-character abbreviations that signify each country. Examples of country-code top-level domain names are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a country-code one, has a Registry - an institution that administers the registrations and sets the preconditions that each concrete TLD may involve, among them the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact sell the domain name to clients and manage all DNS resource records.
Make Money From Offering Domain Names
Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that allow individuals to earn revenue from selling domain names to end users. If you subscribe to such a program, you can build your own personal e-business. Normally, a domain name will cost less if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is purchased directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The cause is that resellers can contact more customers in provinces or countries where the Registrar may not be known at all. This implies 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 charges for the domain registration.
Resell Top-Level Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Own Personal Trademark Name
When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will have a website hosting Control Panel where you can set the prices for the different top-level domain names that the Registrar provides. Most firms also offer billing transaction software and web site skins for your online storefront, and the automation of the whole procedure combined with the flourishing demand for domains make the domain name reseller market so desirable. You will either receive a pre-developed web site and use the Registrar system to sell domains, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your own web site and order form. Generally, you have the option to pick between the 2 options, so it all depends on how expert you are in these affairs. As a domain reseller, you will operate on behalf of your very own personal trademark name and not under the Registrar's.
Earn Revenue From Providing Hosting Services As Well
A reasonable supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts as well. Thus, you can offer a package deal to customers who would like to run their web site and need both a domain and a website hosting package. Certain corporations provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can have a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and cost-free invoice transaction software to bill your clients. You can then offer top-level domain names and shared web hosting accounts to customers, and since they offer many different domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to users from all over the world.
