Domain name reseller
The World Wide Web is an ever-expanding network that offers new possibilities to make cash on the Internet. One of them is to be a domain reseller and sell domains to end users, making revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail price of each and every domain name. 1000's of domains are registered each day, and there are millions of presently active domain names, so this is a developing marketing niche that you can be a part of.
TLDs and SLDs
A domain contains 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 and "domain" is the SLD.
Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domains
The TLDs can be generic or country code. The gTLDs comprise the best known domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code TLDs are made of two-character abbreviations that denote each country. Instances of country-code TLDs are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a gTLD or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an organization that administers the registrations and sets the prerequisites that each concrete TLD may have, such as the duration of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. A number of Registrar companies operate under the Registry. These are the companies that in fact offer the domain name to customers and administer all DNS records.
Make Cash From Selling Domains
Numerous Registrars have reseller programs that permit individuals to gain revenue from offering domains to end clients. If you sign up for such a program, you can commence your very own personal web business. Generally, a domain name will be more inexpensive 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 reach more persons in local communities or countries where the Registrar may not be popular whatsoever. This means more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will benefit from that. Your revenue will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar levies for the domain registration.
Resell Domains Under Your Own Brand Name
When you subscribe to a domain name reseller program, you will get a web space hosting CP where you can fix the prices for the separate top-level domain names that the Registrar provides. Most corporations also provide invoicing software and website skins for your virtual store, and the automation of the whole process together with the proliferating demand for domains make the domain reseller market niche so alluring. You will either acquire a pre-developed site and use the Registrar system to sell domain names, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can create your very own personal website and form for placing orders. Normally, you have the option to select between the two options, so it all depends on how expert you are in these things. As a domain name reseller, you will work under your very own personal brand name and not on behalf of the Registrar's.
Earn Money From Offering Web Hosting Accounts Too
A sensible supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans too. Thus, you can offer a package deal to users who wish to establish their website and require both a domain name and a webspace hosting plan. Some companies have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can run a VPS or a dedicated server, and they will also give you a domain reseller account and free invoice management software to charge your customers. You can then sell top-level domain names and shared hosting accounts to customers, and since they provide a lot of different domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to users from all around the world.
