This is probably one of the most asked questions amongst domainers, especially newcomers to the industry. There isn’t really a straight answer or solution – there are a number of places you can sell domain names it all depends on the type of name you have and the kind of price you’re after.
Below is just a few suggestions on how/where to sell domain names…
You can list your domain for sale (for free or get a paid listing) at Sedo. It is one of the biggest marketplaces for domain names and websites.
Short for “The Domain Name After Market”, TDnam is a GoDaddy sister company. Just like Sedo, you can list your domain name for sale for free or pay for a featured listing.
I’m sure you all know what eBay is. Well, you can list your domain name for sale with a fixed price or as an auction just like you would with any other product that’s listed there.
You list your domain names for sale for about $0.30 – but unlike ebay, there no sales fees. You only pay for listings.
NamePros is a domainers forum with a number of marketplaces where you can buy and sell domain names. There are no fees to pay and you run an auction or sell at fixed price.
As I stated above, it depends on the type of domain name you are trying to sell. For example, ebay is good for short domain names (LLLL.com / LLLLL.com) but make sure you set a reserve or starting price because some times names don’t get many bids and you could end up losing a gem for peanuts! Forums such as NamePros.com or DNForum.com are good for selling quick – lesser quality names. These places are full of domainers and resellers so don’t expect any huge end-user sales.
I’ll be writing an article/guide to selling where I will be giving more in-depth information on each of the market places and techniques to sell domain names. Keep an eye out for that – I’ll post a link here when its published.
