Do a search on LinkedIn for “domain broker” or “domain name,” and you will see a lot of results for people who list domain name broker in their LinkedIn profile. There are way more people who consider themselves to be brokers or who offer private brokerage services than I thought possible.
One reason for this is that there are likely brand protection companies whose employees work on domain name acquisitions on behalf of clients. Another reason is the relative ease in setting up shop and calling oneself a domain broker.
I am not a domain broker. I acted as a broker for a few names probably over 10 years ago, and I didn’t like that business model. I prefer to sell my own domain names. I am curious what percentage of readers broker domain names owned by other people. Please vote in the poll below to share:
