Domain name reseller
The Internet is an ever-increasing community that supplies new possibilities to make money on the Web. One of these ways is to be a domain name reseller and offer domains to end users, generating revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. Thousands of domains are registered each and every day, and there are millions of currently functioning domain names, so this is an enlarging trading niche that you can become involved in.
Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names
A domain name involves two components - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD.
gTLDs and ccTLDs
The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the best known domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code TLDs comprise two-letter abbreviations that signify 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 name or a country-code one, has a Registry - an organization that administers the registrations and sets the requirements that each specific TLD may have, including the length of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the companies that actually offer the domain name to clients and manage all DNS resource records.
Make Money From Reselling Domain Names
Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to make revenue from selling domain names to end clients. If you sign up for such a program, you can commence your own Internet business. Regularly, a domain name will be cheaper if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end user. The cause is that resellers can contact more customers in local communities or countries where the Registrar may not be known 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 client pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain registration.
Resell Top-Level Domains On Behalf Of Your Own Personal Trademark Name
When you subscribe to a domain reseller program, you will have a Control Panel where you can choose the prices for the various TLDs that the Registrar provides. Most firms also provide invoice management software and site templates for your online store, and the automation of the whole procedure coupled with the strong demand for domain names make the domain name reseller market so attractive. You will either acquire a pre-built web site and avail of the Registrar system to resell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your very own personal website and form for placing orders. Traditionally, you have the opportunity to decide between the two options, so it all revolves around how proficient you are in these things. As a domain reseller, you will sell on behalf of your own personal trademark name and not under the Registrar's.
Gain Cash From Trading Web Hosting Plans Too
A suitable supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans too. In this way, you can give a package deal to clients who wish to run their website and require both a domain name and a web site hosting package. Particular companies furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can purchase a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and free-of-cost invoicing transaction software to charge your customers. You can then offer Top-Level Domains and shared website hosting plans to customers, and since they provide many different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to customers from all over the world.
