Is Buying A Domain From A Domain Reseller Worth It?

Everyone who wants to establish their business presence online or is looking forward to opening a new website has to buy a domain from a domain service provider. If the budget is high, they can conveniently buy one of the most beneficial domain plans provided by the domain service or else, in case of a limited budget, they have to make a compromise and opt for the low budget plans.


However, this is not where all that ends. Fortunately, you still have the opportunity to look for popular domain names for your website, which have been previously owned.  However, on the other hand, buying an old domain can also be a harmful idea if the decision is not made with proper consideration. So what exactly are the ways in which you can decide which domain to buy and when to buy it?

If the nature of your website is the same as that of the site that previously used the name and if that website was popular enough when it was active, then you stand to gain a lot as the traffic that was attracted by that website will now be diverted to yours. However, it may take some more money to invest since that domain had been very popular.

On the other hand, when you go for domains that were not so popular when they were being used, that can adversely affect the traffic to your website. However, in the long term, when you buy a domain that has been resold, you experience long-term benefits. The first one being low trade prices. When you buy a resold website address, you can decide your own profit margins since the domain reseller does not interfere with that. Secondly, you experience healthy customer privacy, as the reseller does not contact your customers directly. So now, you can decide on how to approach and interact with people visiting your site. Also, you get a very user-friendly control panel to work with, which is a great convenience. Compare that to the slightly complicated control panel you get from direct registrars and the difference is stark.

The most significant benefit is that you will get a dedicated account manager, who will specifically cater to your needs. This is a much better alternative to the other one where an anonymous representative manages your account and you cannot even communicate your needs clearly to them. If you find the right people, you can come across dedicated reseller teams that can help you to conduct your business with a reseller domain.

With all those benefits that come as a package, it won’t be wrong to deduce that buying a domain on a reseller basis is beneficial (as I’ve found out before with the help of the Danish “UnoEuro” provider). It is certainly a good gain for your website. However, you should also take care of the aforementioned considerations. If you find this article on the nitty gritty of how to buy a domain from a reseller informative, then please give us your feedback and don’t forget to share it.

    I don’t think there is any harm buying a domain name from a domain reseller untill he provide you a control panel to manage or transfer your domain name.

    If you don;t like the services, you can move your domain to some other registrar using your domain AuthCode.

    Well, you may be right, but there’s no harm in being too cautious.
