Domain name reseller
The World Wide Web is an ever-increasing platform that delivers new possibilities to make cash on the Web. One of these ways is to become a domain name reseller and sell domains to end users, making profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. 1000's of domains are registered each day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently active domains, so this is a flowering business niche that you can be involved in.
Top-Level and Second-Level Domains
A domain name consists of 2 constituents - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the top-level domain name and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.
Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names
The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs comprise the best known domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code Top-Level Domains comprise two-character abbreviations that denote each country. Instances of country-code top-level domain names are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic Top-Level Domain or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an institution that tackles the registrations and determines the requirements that each particular TLD may contain, such as the duration of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the firms that actually sell the domain name to customers and administer all DNS resource records.
Earn Revenue From Offering Domain Names
A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to earn profit from selling domains to end customers. If you register with such a program, you can set up your own web 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 explanation is that resellers can reach more individuals in local communities or countries where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will benefit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar levies for the domain name registration.
Sell TLDs On Behalf Of Your Own Personal Brand
When you subscribe to a domain reseller program, you will have a site hosting CP where you can fix the prices for the separate top-level domain names that the Registrar provides. Most firms also offer billing management software and web design themes for your online storefront, and the automation of the entire procedure together with the swelling demand for domain names make the domain name reseller business so desirable. You will either acquire a turn-key web site and make use of the Registrar platform to sell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your very own personal online portal and form for placing orders. Usually, you have the opportunity to pick between the two possibilities, so it all revolves around how expert you are in these issues. As a domain reseller, you will operate under your very own personal brand and not under the Registrar's.
Earn Revenue From Providing Web Hosting Accounts As Well
An appropriate addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions too. Thus, you can offer a package deal to customers who wish to have their website and need both a domain name and a web page hosting account. Some companies furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can order a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and charge-free invoicing software to charge your clients. You can then offer domains and shared hosting plans to customers, and since they provide many different domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to users from all over the globe.
