Domain Name Marketplaces

Purchasing a domain name from a retail marketplace might be your best option. There is no one “Amazon.com” marketplace, so you’ll have to visit many domain name marketplaces to search and find the domain name of your choice.

Because there are literally thousands of marketplaces where you can buy a domain name, below is a list of domain name marketplaces — that have at least 10,000 domain names — that you may want to investigate (in alphabetical order):

    Hi, thanks for writing this blog post. I have a domain USA County (ContraCostaCars.com) and Android Blog (androidneeds.com). What do you think would be a best marketplace to sell this domain as quick as possible?

    1. Hi Susheel,

      If you can wait, perhaps someone will come to you to inquire about buying them in the next few years.

      If you want them sold quickly:

      Your car domain is a geographic keyword, and likely the only people that will want it are car dealers (new and used) in that county (if anyone, counties are harder to sell then cities). You’ll need to do the hard work of research and outreach by email and telephone. Because the domain is not worth enough to broker, it will be on you to accomplish.

      The Android domain is a brandable. You can put it in auction at GoDaddy, NameJet or Sedo, or you can offer it for sale on a marketplace like NamePros. You might get wholesale value for it, which is likely what you paid for it.

      These are the kind of trade-offs that I teach you about in DNAcademy.com. I also go into detail on how to do outreach to end users, how to list domains on marketplaces, what the fees are, etc. But if you hustle and work hard, you can figure it all out yourself. Good luck.

      Best,
      Michael

  2. Hoping to make your brandables list in the near future Michael.

    Hi,

    Is there any tool which can help listing domains on every (or some) marketplaces ? Manage auction (I mean selling) in a single place instead of in every marketplaces ?

    It is really time consuming, and I’d like to “automatize” this process, even if it’s not on all of them.

    I know every marketplace have its own API, but it mean to developp my own Backoffice to do so. If I could avoid this step !

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks a lot !

    1. Hi Arnaud,

      Unfortunately not. A few companies have tried to automate the process, but have not succeeded wildly and generally have closed down.

      Most marketplaces do not have well developed APIs, and if they do offer them I’ve heard they’re buggy, outdated or not fully developed. That’s what I’ve heard. Maybe your research will yield different results. If so, please let me know.

      Best,
      Michael

        Thanks for your answer, I’ll try to developp such a backoffice then !

  4. Where can I sell .xyz domain quickly? My domain name is hostmywebsite.xyz

    1. Hi Vineet,

      If your .xyz domain is worthless, it won’t sell anywhere quickly.

      If it has any value, the quickest way is to sell it to another domain name investor in a NamePros auction: https://www.namepros.com/forums/domain-auctions.63/

      If you want more for it, then you have to wait for a buyer to come to you.

      I outline all the ways you can sell your specific domain names in DNAcademy.com (spoiler alert: each type of domain name needs it’s own sales path). In fact, I just did a webinar on this topic. If you want to learn how to become a domain name investor, use SHERPAFAN as your coupon code for $50 off the tuition.

      Best wishes to you,

        Thanks for your suggestion.

  5. Achintha says:

    What about Flippa.com.

    Any Recommendations? Is it a Good Selling Platform?

    1. Hi Achintha,

      Flippa is fine if the type of domain name you’re selling is geared toward entrepreneurs or technologists. The benefit of Flippa is that if you can write a sales pitch, you can likely get more for your domain name. Other platforms do not allow you to write sales copy associated with your domain name for sale.

      Remember, domains with no value will always have no value regardless of the marketplace. There’s no “silver bullet” for selling crappy domain names, unfortunately for all of us.

      Best regards,
      Michael

    Can you add Freemarket.com? Thanks.

    DomainNameSales.com

  8. Sameh says:

    How about Afternic.com?

    Also, are you open for submission of Domain Portfolios “aka small marketplaces” to be included in this list?

    Thanks,
    Sameh

    1. Thanks, Sameh. Good catch on Afternic. It should have been included.

      Because there are literally thousands of websites with listings of domain names for sale — and listing thousands of websites for people to visit would not be useful — I decided to set a threshold of 10,000.

      If your domain name website/marketplace lists at least 10,000 domain names for sale then I’m happy to list it above. Otherwise, I encourage you as a domain name investor to list your domain names at one or more of the marketplaces listed above.

      1. Sameh says:

        Sounds good. No .. to be honest, mine is currently around 2,000 domains.

        Since you have a rule now, here are a couple that fit your criteria:

        HugeDomains.com
        NoktaDomains.com
        FabulousDomains.com

        1. Thank you, Sameh. Updating the resource now. I appreciate your assistance.
