Selling your Domain Name: Going It Alone
Selling a Domain Name Yourself
Perhaps you don't want to slip a domain broker a share of the loot from a domain name sale. Or you believe you can do a better job of selling the name... so go for it!
First, you need to price your name. Visit domain brokers to get a feel for prices of similar names, read the FAQ about selling names, then steel yourself and price your name at 50% of your initial estimate. That way, you just might be able to sell it...
You'll need to advertise the name as widely as possible. The sites below all offer free listing of one or more domain names. Be courteous in your dealings with these sites and, who knows, they might well introduce you to a potential buyer.
You'll also need to work out some way to get the money and reassure the buyer that they will get the name. While you could try for a cheque or money order, many buyers might be put off at the idea, especially if the purchase runs into the thousands of dollars. So you might want to consider an escrow service.
