Domain name reseller
The Internet is an ever-enlarging network that delivers new options to gain cash on the Internet. One of these options is to be a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end users, gaining profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. Thousands of domain names are registered every day, and there are millions of presently functioning domain names, so this is an increasing marketing niche that you can become involved in.
TLDs and SLDs
A domain name is made of 2 components - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the second-level domain name.
Generic and Country-Code TLDs
The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs include the most conventional domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code TLDs comprise two-letter abbreviations that symbolize 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 organization that administers the registrations and sets the preconditions that each specific top-level domain name may include, like the length of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies operate under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact offer the domain name to clients and manage all DNS resource records.
Gain Cash From Offering Domains
Lots of 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 commence your very own personal Internet business. Regularly, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is purchased directly from the Registrar by an end user. The explanation is that resellers can reach more individuals in regions or states where the Registrar may not be popular at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will take advantage of that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.
Resell Domain Names Under Your Own Personal Trademark Name
When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will obtain a site hosting CP where you can settle the prices for the various top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most firms also provide invoicing software and web site templates for your web shop, and the automation of the whole process together with the rising demand for domain names make the domain name reseller business so desirable. You will either obtain a ready-for-use website and utilize the Registrar system to resell domains, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your very own portal and order form. Generally, you have the option to pick between the 2 options, so it all revolves around how practiced you are in these affairs. As a domain name reseller, you will sell under your very own trademark name and not on behalf of the Registrar's brand.
Make Revenue From Trading Site Hosting Packages Too
A good supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting packages too. In this way, you can offer a package deal to people who wish to build their online portal and demand both a domain name and a web site hosting package. A few companies supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can have a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and cost-free invoice software to charge your clients. You can then sell domain names and shared hosting plans to customers, and since they provide lots of different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain and hosting services to people from all around the world.
