How To Sell A Domain Name

Either you have a domain name to sell or you are planning to sell one, the first thing you should know is how to price the domain name you want to sell. You should therefore understand how good your domain name is. What price will it get from a buyer? What type of TLD (suffix) does it carry?

Names that are easy to spell will attract buyers, and provide good opportunity to make a decent profit. If you know you have a good domain in your hands, then you are likely to make good profit by selling it.

You should also learn to sell premium domain names. Dictionary names are premium domain names. Domain names with dictionary-singular names are the hottest on the internet, and buyers are willing to pay a lot to purchase them. Also, you should know that unhyphenated domain names have more value.

Before trying to sell a domain name, you should keep track of the traffic the domain name receives as well as the domain’s expiry date. Also, you would need to clarify if the domain name earns you money or not. If it does, you will need to probably show a proof of that. This will help indicate the domain’s value in the market.

After getting a buyer for the domain name you are selling, you will need to transfer the domain name to the buyer after you receive payent. Every domain name selling website has its own process. Generally, the domain name selling websites require you to submit the authorisation/authentication code, which will initiate the transfer process. Once the transfer is completed, you can then transfer funds from the escrow account to your personal account. Do check for the minimum number of days the amount must stay in the escrow account before the transaction can be completed.

Once the amount is due for release from the escrow account, you can transfer the money via wire transfer or even through PayPal to your own personal account. The use of PayPal comes with its own limitations in some countries, and it is better to check the PayPal country regulations.
