Domain reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-increasing system that offers new possibilities to make money on the Web. One of these possibilities is to become a domain name reseller and sell domains to end clients, earning revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered each and every day, and there are millions of currently functioning domain names, so this is a thriving business niche that you can be engaged in.

TLDs and SLDs

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

Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names

The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names include the most famous domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code top-level domain names are composed of two-letter abbreviations that correspond to each country. Instances of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an organization that administers the registrations and sets the requirements that each concrete top-level domain name may impose, like the length of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar companies operate under the Registry. These are the firms that actually offer the domain name to customers and manage all domain records.

Gain Money From Offering Domain Names

Many Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to earn profit from selling domains to end customers. If you sign up for such a program, you can launch your very own online business. Typically, a domain will be cheaper if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is purchased straight from the Registrar by an end customer. The reason is that resellers can reach more individuals in regional districts or countries where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will benefit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain name registration.

Resell Domains Under Your Very Own Personal Brand Name

When you register with a domain name reseller program, you will receive a web hosting CP where you can choose the prices for the various TLDs that the Registrar provides. Most firms also offer invoicing transaction software and web templates for your virtual storefront, and the automation of the entire process combined with the strong demand for domains render the domain reseller business so alluring. You will either get a pre-made site and use the Registrar platform to sell domains, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your very own online portal and order form. Typically, you have the opportunity to pick between the 2 possibilities, so it all revolves around how practiced you are in these matters. As a domain reseller, you will work under your own personal brand name and not under the Registrar's.

Gain Profit From Selling Web Space Hosting Solutions As Well

A logical addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting services too. In this way, you can offer a package deal to clients who want to manage their website and require both a domain and a web space hosting plan. A number of companies have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can purchase a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and free invoicing software to charge your customers. You can then offer domain names and shared web hosting accounts to clients, and since they provide plenty of different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to users from all over the world.
