Domainers Guide [Free resources & Tips]

Discussion in 'Domain Names' started by KC TAN, Nov 6, 2006.

    Hi all,

    We have been seeing several repeating questions by the new members who are asking for places to sell domains, suggestions and coupon codes etc. Therefore, I have spent some time writing the following guide that contains some of the valuable resources that I have used and highly recommend them to anyone including the veterans.

    Places to sell domain names [Free]

    The following is some of the places such as forums and sites to place your domain and sell freely (according to response rate, IMO):

    1. NamePros
    2. DigitalPoint
    3. DNForum
    4. WebHostingTalk
    5. SEDO
    6. Webmaster-Talk
    7. V7 Network
    8. TalkFreelance

    Some non-free places to sell domains are:
    Afternic, Sitepoint and TDNAM

    Where to get free domain appraisal?

    Actually the best appraisal place is the respective domain forums because the domainers there can give you direct input about your domain. Please find below some places that you can place your domain for a free appraisal (according to the quality of feedback):

    1. NamePros- Appraisal
    2. DigitalPoint- Appraisal
    3. DNForum- Appraisal
    4. WebHostingTalk- Appraisal
    5. LeapFish- Automated (reference only)

    Where can I get some information regarding recent domain sales?

    1. DNJournal- Domain Sales
    2. Domain sales checker tool
    3. 3 characters price guide
    4. TDNAM recent sales

    Where can I get suggestion for my domain names?

    The following tools have been helping many domainers and webmasters in choosing their desired domains. The following order is not in terms of any merit:

    http://www.pcnames.com/
    http://www.domainnamesoup.com/
    http://www.makewords.com/
    http://www.nameboy.com


    Where can I get a list of expired domain names?

    After a while, some may actually want to tag onto this kind of information so as to grab a better domain at times. Some forums like NP has really good members in providing a constant expiring list:

    1. NamePros- Available & Expired Domain Names
    2. DomainBash- 4 letters expiring up to 10 letters.com
    3. Expiring list based on PR, Alexa rank and dictionary words
    4. Findeteer

    Where can I find coupon codes to register domains?
    SEMrush
    1. Reg-Fee
    2. Domain Coupon Codes -RSS Feed

    Please feel free to add onto this guide so that it will act as a good reference for the everyone :)

    Very informative post.
    Can I just ask why ebay is not mentioned as place to sell? And also why is tdnam (godaddy site) not good.
    Appreciate any comments,
    Thanks:)

    Thanks for the positive feedback, I hope more people can benefit from this guide.

    uberman, to answer your question, I have listed TDNAM above in the non-free section but not ebay (simply forgotten..). Both are good alternatives if the free places can't get you the domain sales.

    Don't want to start another thread so tot I will ask it here

    1) Bulk Domains purchase
    How many domains is defined as bulk-10, 50 or 100? And which registrar(if any) offer discounts for bulk purchase?

    2) Private registration
    Say you buy a domain +private registration, when you sell it, is the private registration service trasferred to the buyer also?
    And is Private registration worth anyway to the buyer-I mean, can you say that this domain is with Private Registration, so it will cost a few more bucks :D

    1) Normally they classified bulk registration as 5 domains or above. As far as I recall, GoDaddy has such an offer :)

    2) As long as the private registration does not come free with the domain registration, it is a nice addon to have. For example, I don't think many people will consider the value of whois guard by NameCheap when they are buying domains from NameCheap. IMHO :D
