    What iis The Best Way To Sell Domains?

    I have about 20 nice domains I'd like to sell. Based on your experience, what's the best way to sell domains?

    I know eBay is a loser for selling domains. Been there, done that. There is very little bidding, even for good domains.

    I signed up for GoDaddy auctions, but it looks like over 90% of their domain postings are for expired domains. Some forums say that Sedo also posts domains in GoDaddy auctions.

    I looked at Sedo. If I interpret their rules correctly, I cannot enter a domain into an auction until I get an offer. Is that correct? That seems like a half-ass way to auction domains.

    Where is the best place to sell domains? I'd like to reduce my inventory over the next couple of months.

    Hard question that really depends on your domains.
    Today, any auction place is a crap shoot (sedo, bido, godaddy, etal).
    I have seen crap domains sell high and good domains never get a bid.
    Ebay, just depends there.
    Some days, good action when buyers hit.
    Other days, just a waste being there.

    Forums?
    Namepros and Digital POint, Dn forums, etal.
    But usually at those forums, it is mostly resellers looking for bargains.
    Not that many end users.

    So, it boils down to:
    Need to sell quick?
    Or got all the time there is?

    I'd like to sell them over the next couple of months.

    I've sold domains and sites on Digital Point in the past, but the forum has turned into a cesspool, so I would no longer consider posting them there.

    I think I will try GoDaddy auctions first. That's a 10-day auction, so it won't take long to see if I get any bites.

    How about advertising them in a classified Ads section in say a Dubai, Qatar, or UAE paper where people have money to invest?

  5. I find digital point forum to be a good place to sell domains. The site has a good amount of traffic and most sales are for bulk orders. What domains are you looking to sell?

    I have sold both domains and websites on DigitalPoint in the past, but DigitalPoint has become such a cesspool that I don't want to deal with the morons at that forum. I had trouble getting payments for the last two domains I sold. One guy wanted me to pay for extending the registration for 2 years before he paid me the price he bid. That wasn't the agreement and I would not do it.

    Several domains were run through the GoDaddy 7-day auction and did not get any bites. It looks like GoDaddy auctions are mostly a place for GoDaddy to sell expired domains that they have not yet released to the public. Less than 5% of the domains I looked at were listed by private sellers, and half of those were listed by Sedo.

    I don't want to list the domains here.
