Offering Domains Can Reduce Friction & Provide a Seamless User Experience

The domain market has grown significantly over the last decade, and the trend is not slowing down. Experts predict the market will reach $1,025 million within the next 2 – 3 years. Businesses can tap into this growth by seamlessly integrating domain reselling into service offerings. 

Getting started with domain reselling isn’t as challenging as one may think. In this whitepaper, you’ll learn how this offering can be integrated into a platform via a simple, user-friendly, no-code, low-code, or customizable API option. You’ll also learn how your platform can utilize domain reselling to improve UX, increase revenue, and establish yourself as a leading SaaS platform. 

How integrated domain reselling reduces friction 

Establishing an optimized customer journey is essential to the success of a SaaS platform. This means removing any point of friction in your product flow, especially anything that requires users to integrate a third-party product with your service. 

SaaS platforms offering products and services that require a domain name to activate can provide a more seamless user experience by integrating domain reselling directly into your platform. Competitive advantages of integrating domain reselling include:

  1. Improved customer experience: Integrating domain sales into your platform helps simplify the web publication process for customers. It also reduced the technical know-how needed for the customers to launch an online business on the platform.
  2. Convert from freemium to paying: Your platform can leverage custom domains as a premium feature to encourage paid conversions. This is because of the plethora of benefits it provides for the customer, including a more professional website and memorable domain name. Overall, by including custom domains in your product suite, you can entice customers to buy into a paid subscription.
  3. Free up customer support: Streamlining the domain linking process can reduce the number of support tickets received. This is because customers do not have to navigate the complexities of connecting a third-party domain name, and come to your support team with questions. When the customer buys a domain name directly from the platform, they can automate the domain linking process for the customer, so they don’t have to connect the domain name themselves. As a result, customer support team efforts can be allocated toward other priorities, freeing up the team’s time, energy, and resources. 

Help customers find the right domains

Choosing a domain name isn’t just about picking a URL – it’s about securing the right domain name, ideally one that reflects what a brand or company stands for. The latest research estimates there are 1.88 billion live websites today – the competition to stand out is fierce. Your customers want their offerings to be communicated through their domain. 

That’s why descriptive domains like .CAFE and .STUDIO are so relevant in today’s digital landscape: they help potential visitors understand exactly what to expect when they visit a site, and the domain name can be much more memorable.

Powerful top-level domains (TLDs) can range from industry-specific extensions (like .TECHNOLOGY, .BIO or .PRO) to career-based extensions (for example .ATTORNEY, .DOCTOR, .DENTIST). These TLDs give businesses even more opportunities to carve out digital identities that closely align with their brand’s ethos and target market.

When offering domains directly in your platform, you can offer these options within the customer journey and surface the most relevant domains related to your customers’ domain searches. At, an Identity Digital company, this is done through Domain Engine, which produces a wide range of lightning-fast, relevant results at your customers’ fingertips.
