Domain name reseller
The World Wide Web is an ever-growing system that generates new opportunities to make cash on the Web. One of these options is to be a domain name reseller and offer domains to end customers, earning revenue from the difference between the wholesale and the retail cost of each domain name. 1000's of domains are registered every day, and there are 1 000 000's of presently active domains, so this is an expanding marketing niche that you can become engaged in.
Top-Level and Second-Level Domains
A domain name is composed of two constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). If we take domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain.
Generic and Country-Code TLDs
The top-level domain names can be generic or country code. The gTLDs comprise the most conventional domain name extensions like .com, .net, .org, .mobi, .info, while the country-code TLDs consist of 2-character abbreviations that correspond to 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 or a country-code top-level domain name, has a Registry - an institution that handles the registrations and determines the preconditions that each specific TLD may contain, such as the length of the registration term or the residency of the registrant. Certain Registrar corporations operate under the Registry. These are the firms that in fact sell the domain name to customers and handle all DNS records.
Earn Cash From Offering Domain Names
Multiple Registrars have reseller programs that enable people to make profit from offering domains to end customers. If you sign up for such a program, you can initiate your own personal online business. Commonly, a domain will be more inexpensive if it is registered through a reseller rather than if it is purchased straight from the Registrar by an end customer. The explanation is that resellers can reach more clients in local communities or countries where the Registrar may not be famous whatsoever. This implies more sales for the Registrar, so both parties will profit from that. Your profit will be the difference between the price that the customer pays and the one that the Registrar charges for the domain registration.
Offer Domain Names Under Your Very Own Personal Trademark Name
When you register with a domain reseller program, you will receive a website hosting Control Panel where you can set the prices for the various TLDs that the Registrar offers. Most firms also provide invoicing transaction software and website templates for your virtual store, and the automation of the whole process combined with the high demand for domain names render the domain name reseller industry so desirable. You will either get a ready-to-use site and avail of the Registrar system to sell domain names, or they will give you access to their API (Application Programming Interface) so that you can make your own personal web site and order form. Commonly, you have the option to choose between the 2 alternatives, so it all depends on how advanced you are in these things. As a domain name reseller, you will operate on behalf of your own personal brand and not under the Registrar's brand.
Earn Cash From Providing Website Hosting Services As Well
A good supplement to your domain reseller business would be to sell web hosting accounts too. Thereby, you can offer a package deal to customers who desire to develop their site and need both a domain name and a web space hosting package. Some firms have such options. With 'ResellersPanel', for example, you can buy a Virtual Dedicated Server or a dedicated server, and they will also offer you a domain name reseller account and free-of-cost billing software to charge your customers. You can then offer TLDs and shared hosting accounts to clients, and since they provide many diverse domain extensions, you will be able to offer domain and hosting services to clients from all around the world.
