maymur, be prepared to spend a lot of PPC to get started. Domains are very competitive--so it will take a lot of effort to get started, unless you can find a "niche".

I think you got me wrongly. I am talking about selling domains, that is registering new domain and proving hosting.

I have small web designing firm and I am working to settle it up successfully with some programmers and designers.

My target is setting up 10 sales point in contract with small IT training firms and cyber cafes around my country.

Well, I can speak from the client side.

I often figure out a way to avoid buying from re-seller.

I think that over time I will have no choice, but given that it is somewhat difficult to start making money with website, I must keep costs as los as possible.

Default Domain name reseller business

Before you get started, read all the blogs and information. You will figure out which blogs are worth your time.

RicksBlog.com (The king)
Elliotsblog.com (successfull resellers)
MorganLinton.com
DomainSherpa.com (Watch all the videos)
Domainnamesales.com
Namebio.com
DNJournal.com
Afternic.com
Sedo.com
4.cn

Subscribe to Domaining.com and all the newsletters. There are many crappy blogs and people that do not know what they are talking about. Don't get fooled by the work "premium" for every single name.

Good Luck.
Rafael

Its a very competitive market and a lot of stronger companies with large marketing budgets are active. Unless you have a background in this market its not going to be easy.

I'll be totally honest.

I've bought thousands of domain names for clients over the years.
I can count the number of domains I've purchased from resellers on one hand.

The only place I really enjoy buying second hand domains would be Just Dropped. They're really the only people around that have good domain names at consistently reasonable prices.

What I consider reasonable: $50-$200. Anything more is incentive to rethink a brand or backorder auction.

Anyway, if there were more sources that had the combination of a good daily list, and reasonable rates on the properties, I would at least listen.

Its an extremely intense market and a considerable measure of stronger organizations with vast showcasing plans are dynamic. Unless you have a foundation in this market its not set to be simple.

Its a good business. You can make a huge amount of money. But it all depends on the domain name. If the name is good then you have good chance of making profit or you can do some seo on the domain names (which you think dont have a good name) and can sell them by showing the clients the traffic that particular domain is getting.

Its an extremely aggressive business sector and a ton of stronger organizations with substantial advertising plans are dynamic. Unless you have a foundation in this market its not set to be simple.
