Domain Resellers

November 24, 2011 by  Filed under: Domain 

When searching for domain companies, web design companies, internet marketing companies you will be spoilt for choice as there are so many. The same can be said for domain resellers which make the domain business a lot more competitive. Many web design or marketing companies have now become domain resellers as they buy so many domains themselves it makes sense to become a reseller and buy domains at cheap prices and then pass these savings on to their customers.

So what is a domain reseller? A domain reseller is someone or company that have registered to become a domain reseller and that can now sell domains. The difference between buying a domain of a proper domain registrar compared to buying them off a reseller is basically cheaper prices and better customer service. Resellers are agents for domain registrars. Because resellers buy their domains in bulk they are able to buy them at a cheaper price and sell them cheaper than the domain companies. Sounds confusing? It really isn’t. Resellers are just like middle men, they act as agents for the domain companies. They buy domains in bulk at wholesale price and then sell them on. Simple!

If you are seriously considering becoming a domain reseller then you need to find yourself an ICANN Accredited Registrar. When a domain company becomes ICANN registered they are known as a trusted and reliable domain company. This is because ICANN( the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, one of whose jobs is to manage the assignment of domain names and IP addresses) keep the domain name system working and stable.

When a domain company is listed as ICANN registered you know that the domain company has been given the thumbs up the ICANN. In the world of domains this is a serious pat on the back. And it doesn’t come cheap; it costs domain companies a lot of money to be classed as ICANN Accredited Registrars. There are hundreds of ICANN-accredited registrars worldwide so it is worth looking at a few and finding out which ones offer the best reseller packages.

Anyone can become a reseller but most resellers are companies that already have an internet based business such as Web Design companies and Search Marketing companies. But you don’t have to have this type of business, you might just like to sell domains and going through the domain reseller option is the best, simplest and cheapest option.
