If you’re thinking about selling domain names, then you have probably already asked yourself if domain reselling is profitable. And although you might expect a simple yes or no answer, there is a bit more to it than you might think. So for now, let’s say that ‘it depends’ and talk about what you need to do in order to make domain reselling profitable.

How does domain reselling work?

Before you find out how to make money off of domain reselling, it’s important to know what it’s all about. Reselling domains means working with a registrar that operates with the different registry operators that control TLDs. Now, you could skip the middleman and directly do business with the registry operators, but that would mean a whole lot of extra work. You have to realize there are more than 1,500 TLDs out there, and that number keeps growing. If you had to deal with each and every one of them, arranging price deals, promotions, and so on, you wouldn’t have much time left to sell the actual domain names.

This is where registrars come in. Registrars take on the the work with the registry operators for you, so you can focus on selling the best products to your customers. At Openprovider we are ICANN-accredited for all the big TLDs, and we keep updating our portfolio. If you decide to do business with us, you’ll have more than 1,000 different TLDs at your disposal to make sure that your customers get exactly what they are looking for.

Become a domain reseller and don’t pay a dime

In order to make domain reselling profitable, you’ll have to make sure that you don’t spend too much money on setting up your business. The good news is that you can become a domain reseller with little to no capital investment. Yes, you heard that right! Starting a domain reselling business is, in fact, very cheap.

However, you might want to invest a small amount of money into getting a good website, in order to attract those customers that are looking for domain registrations. In order to get the most out of that investment and increase your profit, we recommend you to read our ROI Guide for Domain Resellers! Do also remember that, once you have a decent amount of customers, you’ll need to revise and optimize your content strategy, as it’s one of the pillars that every business leans on.

Are your website and content done? Now your domain reselling business has every reason to succeed and, no matter how high the waves, nothing can stand in its way. Just make sure to stay competitive by constantly updating and improving the products and services that you offer your customers.
