What's the best way to sell domain names?

Discussion in 'Domain Names' started by rodelu, Jan 21, 2011.

    I have about 20 domain names that I'm not using, and it's getting expensive to maintain. Some are cool :) I wish to sell them so I can recover some of the money I spent over the years.

    I put them up in the Domain Auction section at GoDaddy.com, but so far I have had nobody show any interest. I do not think is a good way to sell domain names.

    What is, in your experience, the best way to sell them?

    I appreciate your help and suggestions.

    Digitalpoint is the best place IMO. I have got many sales from here, but not from any other, so I advise you to start a new thread on the buy and sell section. Good luck on your sales !

    it may take some time if you can sell/park your potential domains on sedo,
    the main reason is that it's the most popular and reliable platform to buy/sell/trade domain names on the web. ;)

    You know that is really a great answer, and an obvious one. I really didn't even think about it until you mentioned it.

    I’d like to say “Sedo” is one of the best ways to sell out your domain names. I also sold 2 of my domain through this website.

    I suppose the best way to sell all of your domain names is list them in all possible market places. I recommend you DP marketplace, namepros, domainnes marketplace.

    Go to SitePoint.com
    You will make the least amount of money when you sell your domains in domain forums.(Digital Point,NamePros,etc.)
    If any of your domains appraise for more than $500 on estibot list them with a domain broker like Morgan Linton at Morgan Linton.com

    Well, you can try sedo or you can post any thread on some auction forum, or you can promote it at some website.

    I would go with either sedo, or domainshow. Those are my two places I would use to sell my domains.

    find end users is the way to go. DP is great but don't expect to retire on DP bidders money.
    Good luck
