Domain name reseller
The World Wide Web is an ever-expanding network that supplies new possibilities to make money on the Internet. One of these opportunities is to become a domain name reseller and offer domain names to end users, earning revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered each day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently active domains, so this is a growing marketing niche that you can be a part of.
TLDs and SLDs
A domain contains 2 entities - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If we take domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the top-level domain name and "domain" is the SLD.
Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names
The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains include the best known domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code top-level domain names include 2-letter abbreviations that stand for each country. Instances of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each top-level domain name, whether it is a generic top-level domain name or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an organization that is responsible for the registrations and sets the requirements that each particular Top-Level Domain may impose, including the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar companies work under the Registry. These are the firms that actually offer the domain name to customers and handle all domain records.
Gain Money From Selling Domains
Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that permit people to earn cash from selling domain names to end users. If you sign up for such a program, you can launch your very own Internet business. Regularly, 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 user. The cause is that resellers can reach more people in local communities or countries 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 revenue will be the difference between the price that the user pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain name registration.
Sell Domain Names On Behalf Of Your Very Own Personal Brand Name
When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will get a web site hosting Control Panel where you can settle the prices for the specific TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most companies also offer invoice transaction software and site skins for your virtual storefront, and the automation of the whole process combined with the flourishing demand for domain names make the domain reseller industry so seductive. You will either acquire a ready-to-use web site and make use of the Registrar system to resell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can build your own personal website and order form. Normally, you have the opportunity to select between the two alternatives, so it all depends on how trained you are in these issues. As a domain name reseller, you will sell on behalf of your very own trademark name and not under the Registrar's.
Earn Cash From Providing Site Hosting Services As Well
A relevant supplement to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts too. Thereby, you can give a package deal to customers who desire to build their site and demand both a domain and a webspace hosting account. A few corporations have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can purchase a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free billing transaction software to charge your clients. You can then sell Top-Level Domains and shared web hosting accounts to clients, and since they offer lots of different domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to customers from all around the globe.
