Domain name reseller
The Internet is an ever-growing community that provides new options to earn cash on the Web. One of these opportunities is to become a domain name reseller and sell domain names to end clients, making profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. 1000's of domains are registered every day, and there are millions of presently functioning domain names, so this is an enlarging business niche that you can be involved in.
Top-Level and Second-Level Domains
A domain comprises 2 pieces - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we pick domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the second-level domain name.
Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domains
The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic top-level domain names include the most conventional domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code top-level domain names contain 2-letter abbreviations that correspond to each country. Examples of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic Top-Level Domain or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an institution that is responsible for the registrations and sets the preconditions that each concrete TLD may include, such as the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact sell the domain name to customers and handle all domain resource records.
Gain Money From Selling Domains
Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that enable individuals to earn profit from selling domain names to end users. If you sign up for such a program, you can initiate your own personal Internet business. Normally, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained straight from the Registrar by an end user. The reason is that resellers can contact more individuals in local districts or states where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will profit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain registration.
Offer Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Own Personal Trademark Name
When you register with a domain reseller program, you will obtain a web page hosting Control Panel where you can select the prices for the different Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most firms also provide billing management software and web design templates for your web shop, and the automation of the whole process coupled with the big demand for domains render the domain name reseller market so desirable. You will either receive a ready-made web site and use the Registrar system to sell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your very own online portal and form for placing orders. Typically, you have the option to select between the two options, so it all depends on how practiced you are in these issues. As a domain name reseller, you will do business under your own brand name and not under the Registrar's brand.
Make Revenue From Selling Webspace Hosting Plans As Well
A reasonable supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts as well. Thus, you can give a package deal to clients who desire to have their site and require both a domain and a web space hosting account. Some firms supply such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can run a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and charge-free billing software to charge your clients. You can then offer top-level domain names and shared hosting packages to customers, and since they offer many different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to people from all around the globe.
