Domain name reseller
The World Wide Web is an ever-increasing system that supplies new options to gain money on the Web. One of them is to become a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end clients, earning profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. 1000's of domains are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently functioning domains, so this is a growing marketing niche that you can be engaged in.
Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names
A domain is made of 2 parts - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (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 Domains can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs comprise the most widespread domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the ccTLDs are made of two-character abbreviations that denote 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 or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an organization that deals with the registrations and determines the preconditions that each particular Top-Level Domain may contain, such as the duration of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the corporations that in fact offer the domain name to customers and manage all DNS records.
Earn Cash From Reselling Domain Names
Lots of Registrars have reseller programs that allow people to gain money from selling domains to end users. If you register with such a program, you can initiate your own Internet business. Regularly, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is purchased directly from the Registrar by an end client. The reason is that resellers can reach more users in regional districts or countries where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will take advantage of that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar levies for the domain name registration.
Resell Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Personal Brand
When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will receive a web page hosting CP where you can determine the prices for the separate Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also offer invoice software and website themes for your web storefront, and the automation of the entire procedure combined with the significant demand for domains make the domain name reseller market so desirable. You will either have a ready-for-use web site and make use of 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 own site and order form. Usually, you have the opportunity to pick between the 2 alternatives, so it all revolves around how trained you are in these things. As a domain reseller, you will operate under your very own personal trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.
Earn Revenue From Offering Hosting Accounts Too
A good supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts as well. Thereby, you can give a package deal to persons who desire to run their web portal and require both a domain and a site hosting package. Some corporations have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can purchase a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free-of-cost invoice management software to bill your clients. You can then sell Top-Level Domains and shared hosting plans to customers, and since they provide lots of different domain extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to customers from all over the globe.
