Domain name reseller
The Internet is an ever-growing network that provides new opportunities to gain cash on the Internet. One of these options is to become a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end users, making revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each day, and there are millions of currently functioning domain names, so this is an enlarging business niche that you can become engaged in.
Top-Level and Second-Level Domains
A domain name consists of two components - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take domain.com, for example, ".com" is the top-level domain name and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.
Generic and Country-Code TLDs
The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the most widely used domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains involve 2-character abbreviations that correspond to each country. Examples of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a country-code one, has a Registry - an institution that deals with the registrations and determines the preconditions that each particular top-level domain name may entail, including the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact offer the domain name to clients and administer all DNS records.
Gain Cash From Offering Domain Names
Numerous Registrars have reseller programs that allow individuals to gain money from selling domains to end users. If you register with such a program, you can establish your very own online business. Regularly, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end client. The reason is that resellers can reach more users in local regions or states where the Registrar may not be known at all. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will cash in on that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain registration.
Resell Domains Under Your Very Own Personal Trademark Name
When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will receive a web hosting Control Panel where you can select the prices for the separate Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most companies also offer invoicing transaction software and site templates for your virtual storefront, and the automation of the entire process together with the enlarging demand for domain names make the domain name reseller market so seductive. You will either acquire a pre-built 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 website and order form. Traditionally, you have the opportunity to decide between the two alternatives, so it all revolves around how advanced you are in these issues. As a domain name reseller, you will work on behalf of your personal brand name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.
Make Cash From Supplying Web Space Hosting Services As Well
A nice addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions too. Thereby, you can give a package deal to customers who want to manage their web portal and demand both a domain and a hosting account. Some companies provide such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can have a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain name reseller account and charge-free invoicing transaction software to bill your customers. You can then sell domains and shared hosting plans to customers, and since they offer a lot of different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to users from all over the world.
