Do you have a great domain name but nothing to use it for? Instead of letting it expire, you might be able to sell it on a domain marketplace.
Why could my domain be valuable?
You might have a domain which people want. There are a few key factors that could give your domain value:
- They contain generic terminology and keywords
- They are short and easy to remember
- They are of interest to a wide selection of prospective customers or businesses
- They support SEO and SEM strategies
- They support brand & marketing strategies
- Domains linked to recent events
How can I sell my domain?
You can simply wait and hope someone will email you to purchase your domain. However more and more, domain contacts are not listed in WHOIS lookups, so there may be people trying to purchase your domain who cannot contact you.
There are many domain marketplaces available, which both list your domain, and provide you with a parking page letting the public know your domain is for sale.
