Domain name reseller

The World Wide Web is an ever-growing platform that provides new possibilities to make money on the Internet. One of these possibilities is to be a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end customers, earning profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. Thousands of domains are registered every day, and there are millions of currently functioning domains, so this is a developing business niche that you can be a part of.

Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names

A domain name consists of two entities - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the SLD.

Generic and Country-Code TLDs

The TLDs can be generic or country code. The gTLDs comprise the most widely used domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code Top-Level Domains consist of 2-character abbreviations that correspond to each country. Instances of ccTLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic Top-Level Domain or a ccTLD, has a Registry - an organization that manages the registrations and determines the requirements that each specific Top-Level Domain may entail, including the duration of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms work under the Registry. These are the firms that actually offer the domain name to clients and administer all domain resource records.

Earn Cash From Offering Domain Names

Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to make revenue from offering domain names to end customers. If you sign up for such a program, you can begin your own personal online business. Generally, a domain name will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is purchased straight from the Registrar by an end client. The reason is that resellers can reach more individuals in provinces or states where the Registrar may not be famous 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 requires for the domain registration.

Sell Top-Level Domain Names Under Your Very Own Brand Name

When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will acquire a web hosting Control Panel where you can settle the prices for the various Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most firms also provide invoicing software and website templates for your online shop, and the automation of the whole procedure coupled with the great demand for domain names render the domain name reseller business niche so alluring. You will either get a ready-for-use website and avail of the Registrar system to sell domains, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your own personal online portal and order form. Commonly, you have the opportunity to pick between the two options, so it all depends on how practiced you are in these affairs. As a domain name reseller, you will do business under your own brand and not under the Registrar's.

Earn Cash From Trading Hosting Packages Too

A relevant supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions as well. In this way, you can offer a package deal to persons who desire to develop their online portal and need both a domain name and a web space hosting plan. Certain companies have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can purchase a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free-of-cost billing management software to charge your customers. You can then offer domain names and shared hosting accounts to clients, and since they provide lots of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain name and hosting services to people from all around the globe.
