Domain name reseller
The Internet is an ever-expanding system that generates new opportunities to gain money on the Internet. One of these possibilities is to be a domain reseller and offer domain names to end users, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered each day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently functioning domain names, so this is a blooming business niche that you can become involved in.
TLDs and SLDs
A domain name includes two entities - 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 SLD.
Generic and Country-Code TLDs
The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The generic TLDs comprise the most widespread domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, whereas the country-code TLDs contain two-character abbreviations that denote each country. Examples 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 name or a country-code Top-Level Domain, has a Registry - an organization that tackles the registrations and determines the requirements that each given top-level domain name may contain, among them the duration of the registration term or the citizenship of the registrant. Certain Registrar firms operate under the Registry. These are the companies that actually offer the domain name to customers and administer all DNS resource records.
Earn Revenue From Selling Domain Names
A lot of Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to gain cash from offering domain names to end users. If you register with such a program, you can set up your own Internet business. Commonly, a domain will be cheaper if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is bought directly from the Registrar by an end user. The cause is that resellers can contact more individuals in local communities or countries where the Registrar may not be popular at all. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both sides will take advantage of that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar requires for the domain registration.
Resell Top-Level Domains Under Your Very Own Personal Brand
When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will acquire a website hosting Control Panel where you can determine the prices for the separate Top-Level Domains that the Registrar offers. Most corporations also provide invoice management software and web page themes for your online storefront, and the automation of the entire process together with the immense demand for domains make the domain reseller market so tempting. You will either acquire a pre-made web site and avail of the Registrar platform to resell domains, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your very own personal portal and form for placing orders. Typically, you have the opportunity to choose between the 2 alternatives, so it all revolves around how skillful you are in these things. As a domain reseller, you will operate under your very own personal brand and not on behalf of the Registrar's.
Make Cash From Offering Web Space Hosting Services Too
A proper addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans too. In this way, you can give a package deal to individuals who would like to run their website and demand both a domain and a web page hosting plan. Certain companies offer such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can order a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and cost-free invoicing software to bill your customers. You can then offer Top-Level Domains and shared website hosting plans to customers, and since they offer many diverse domain name extensions, you will be able to provide domain name and hosting services to users from all over the globe.
