Lets say you own a domain name that you would like to sell. How do you do that? This is the purpose of this post. This post is part of my domain name series if you are interested in more domain name information. Domain name series.
Selling a domain name is really easy if you know how. All you need is a computer, internet access and idealy a PayPal account.
But lets start from the beginning. The first step should be to open up a PayPal account in order to be able to send and receive money from buyers. PayPal is the most accepted payment service on the net and in my opinion the best as well. Being able to send and receive funds through PayPal will give you more flexibility in your domain name sale and also peace of mind when it comes to fraud and other possible problems.
Once you have done that you are all set up to start promoting your domains you wish to sell.
The next step is to register with websites that provide a platform for you to promote your domain names to potential buyers.
This is the largest seller site on the web:
There are more sites where you can sell domains of course but Sedo is by far the most successful and I would highly recommend Sedo to start with.
The benefits of these domain name aftermarkets is that they give you total control over the whole process of putting your domain name on sale as well as dealing with the complete sales process once you have found a buyer.
Another benefit with these domain name aftermarkets is that you can do everything in terms of money transfer with your recently opened PayPal account. You can receive the money from the sale via a wire transfer to your local bank. All of these domain name aftermarkets are large enough to that.
And thats it already. Now you just need to sit back and relax and see whether there are any offers coming. Time is on your side and there is no need to take more action at this point.
