Domain name reseller
The Internet is an ever-flourishing system that furnishes new options to gain money on the Web. One of these options is to become a domain reseller and offer domain names to end clients, gaining revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered each day, and there are 1 000 000's of currently functioning domains, so this is a flowering marketing niche that you can become a part of.
TLDs and SLDs
A domain name involves two constituents - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take domain.com, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD.
gTLDs and ccTLDs
The TLDs can be generic or country code. The generic Top-Level Domains comprise the most common domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code top-level domain names consist of 2-character abbreviations that represent each country. Examples of country-code Top-Level Domains are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each TLD, whether it is a generic TLD or a country-code one, has a Registry - an institution that deals with the registrations and determines the prerequisites that each specific TLD may involve, such as the length of the registration period or the citizenship of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies operate under the Registry. These are the corporations that actually sell the domain name to clients and administer all DNS records.
Earn Cash From Reselling Domain Names
Many Registrars have reseller programs that allow individuals to gain money from selling domain names to end clients. If you register with such a program, you can kickstart your own online business. Commonly, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered via a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end customer. The explanation is that resellers can contact more people in local districts or states where the Registrar may not be famous whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will earn a profit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.
Offer TLDs Under Your Very Own Trademark Name
When you register with a domain name reseller program, you will obtain a web site hosting CP where you can determine the prices for the specific TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most companies also offer invoice management software and website skins for your online store, and the automation of the whole procedure together with the towering demand for domain names render the domain reseller business so tempting. You will either acquire a pre-built website and use the Registrar platform to sell domain names, or they will offer you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can set up your own online portal and order form. Normally, you have the opportunity to choose between the 2 alternatives, so it all revolves around how advanced you are in these affairs. As a domain name reseller, you will work under your own brand name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.
Make Cash From Promoting Web Page Hosting Accounts As Well
A logical addition to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting solutions as well. Thus, you can offer a package deal to users who would like to create their web site and require both a domain and a hosting account. Given firms furnish such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can purchase a Virtual Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain reseller account and charge-free billing transaction software to bill your customers. You can then offer domains and shared web hosting plans to customers, and since they offer plenty of diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to individuals from all over the globe.
