Domain name reseller
The Internet is an ever-increasing community that provides new opportunities to earn cash on the Internet. One of them is to be a domain name reseller and offer domains to end users, earning profit from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each and every domain name. 1000's of domain names are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently active domain names, so this is a blossoming marketing niche that you can be involved in.
Top-Level and Second-Level Domains Names
A domain is composed of 2 constituents - a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we pick domain.com, for example, ".com" is the top-level domain name and "domain" is the SLD.
Generic and Country-Code Top-Level Domain Names
The Top-Level Domains can be generic or country code. The gTLDs comprise the most conventional domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code TLDs are composed of 2-character abbreviations that symbolize each country. Instances of country-code top-level domain names are .ca, .me, .fr, .es, and so on. Each Top-Level Domain, whether it is a generic Top-Level Domain or a country-code TLD, has a Registry - an institution that manages the registrations and sets the requirements that each particular top-level domain name may include, among them the length of the registration period or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations work under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact sell the domain name to customers and manage all DNS records.
Make Revenue From Trading Domains
Plenty of Registrars have reseller programs that permit individuals to earn revenue from offering domains to end users. If you register with such a program, you can kick off your very own web business. Typically, a domain will be cheaper if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is obtained directly from the Registrar by an end client. The cause is that resellers can contact more clients in local regions or states where the Registrar may not be known whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will benefit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the client pays and the one that the Registrar imposes for the domain name registration.
Sell Domain Names Under Your Personal Brand
When you sign up for a domain reseller program, you will acquire a web hosting Control Panel where you can fix the prices for the separate top-level domain names that the Registrar offers. Most companies also offer invoice software and web page themes for your online storefront, and the automation of the whole procedure together with the proliferating demand for domains make the domain name reseller business so tempting. You will either acquire a turn-key site and use the Registrar platform to sell domain names, or they will grant you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your own personal site and form for placing orders. Generally, you have the opportunity to choose between the two possibilities, so it all revolves around how trained you are in these issues. As a domain reseller, you will sell under your own brand name and not under the Registrar's brand.
Make Revenue From Reselling Web Page Hosting Accounts As Well
A nice addition to your domain name reseller business would be to sell web hosting plans too. Thereby, you can offer a package deal to clients who would like to manage their web page and need both a domain name and a web space hosting account. Certain companies have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for instance, you can buy a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and charge-free billing management software to charge your customers. You can then offer domains and shared hosting plans to clients, and since they provide plenty of different domain name extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to persons from all around the globe.
