During the course of selling a domain name, I don’t typically do much buyer due diligence beyond ensuring they will be able to close the deal. I figure Escrow.com, brokerage or marketplace, and/or my attorney can let me know if the buyer is on the OFAC list or if there is another reason I cannot do business with the buyer.
My company doesn’t own many sensitive domain names that could be problematic in the wrong hands. On names that could be sensitive though, I would ensure there are contractual obligations for the buyer’s usage of the domain name that would ensure the domain name is not used in a harmful manner. Sure, I would prefer not to sell a domain name to an organization that does things I don’t like, but it could be very difficult to police that.
I am curious if investors care who buys their domain names. Do you?
