While the article mentioned some popular online tools such as Namebio.com and Estibot.com (which help give a ball-park figure on potential value), the author seemed to leave out one of the best options for selling a domain; a domain name broker.

Sedo.com’s Buy, Sell, Park Domains Venue Getting More Competitively Priced?

I’m also a Wild West Domains reseller and believe it or not, I may not have even found this fantastic industry if it were not for Godaddy’s “Website Tonight” product which is now called “Website Builder” as it resulted in me building my very first website. In my opinion, GoDaddy.com is one of the best registrars for domains and I … [Read more...]
