Someone recently asked me where I list my domain names for sale. I’ve mentioned this in articles at various times on here and on Twitter, but I thought I would share an update to give current information about my portfolio sales listings.
I would guesstimate about 95% of my domain names are listed for sale on DAN.com. These domain names have DAN landing pages and nearly all have BIN prices with the make offer option. DAN has earned my business since I closed my first deal on the platform in April of 2020, and I am happy to send visitors there to buy or negotiate to buy a domain name I own.
I would estimate about 85% of my domain names are listed for sale on Afternic / GoDaddy. Most of these domain names have BIN prices, allowing prospective buyers to purchase these domain names at GoDaddy or their preferred network partner registrar. The reason this number is lower than the DAN number is I don’t list all of my recent DropCatch wins at NameBright since NameBright is not an Afternic partner. When I transfer names to GoDaddy before renewal time, I tend to list them on Afternic. My higher value names have a minimum offer amount but do not have a BIN price listed to allow me to consider various factors before pricing.
After recently having a conversation with Dave Evanson of Sedo, I added about 30 of my better domain names to Sedo with a relatively aggressive minimum offer amount but no buy it now pricing. This will give Sedo’s brokers my high end inventory for when a client is looking for a specific type of domain name. I may add more domain names to Sedo depending on how things go. Since listing these names a couple of weeks ago, I received one mid-five figure offer (Chilly.com), which I did not accept.
I have many domain names listed for sale on Embrace.com, the marketplace I operate with my own inventory. I previously had 50% +/- of my portfolio use Embrace.com landing pages, but DAN outperformed these. I still use the Embrace.com inquiry form for my higher value inventory rather than having BIN landers.
I also have a handful of one word .com domain names listed for sale on Evergreen.com. I regularly receive requests from Jen Sale who deals with high end names, and she has brought me leads for my one word .coms, so I list some of them there.
I do not really list my names for sale elsewhere. When names sell, I don’t want to have to make too much of an effort to find listings that need to be removed. I feel like I have good enough coverage with the venues I use, and I am regularly in touch with brokers seeking inventory for clients.
Where are you listing your domain names for sale these days?
