Hello seiretto. Welcome to WebmasterWorld.

Forgive the early edit. The reasons for the edit are better understood by reading the Charter:

[webmasterworld.com...]

For reasons that have been discussed many times in this forum there really isn't a "best place" for selling domains. Why? Because the best salesforce a domain can have is to be an inherently attractive and desirable domain.

Google site search for best place to sell domains [google.com]

Expressed differently, shoddy domains can put listed and pumped-for-sale all over the Web without success. Even the huge marketplaces - where you would assume many go to shop - don't move more than a small percentage (<1%) of their listed domains in any year. That means 99/100 domains really don't have a buyer. The number is likely more like 999/1000 domains don't have aftermarket buyers, someone willing to pay >reg fee.

That said, list them everywhere you can (without incurring a listing charge, other than a sales commission).

One thing worth noting is that if your domain is likely to be searched out using a two letter search term (ie: the domain is TVwidgets.nnn and the obvious search term is "tv") then it's pointless listing it at Sedo as it only performs exact-match searches on 2-character searches.

I'm sorry, can you clarify what you mean by "it only performs exact-match searches on 2-character searches." I have some domains listed on sedo, a couple very similar to what you used in your example. Is there a better place to list them? I notice sedo is often frequenting the domain sales list, that's why is listed there.

There was a feeling of inevitability that this thread would bring out the promotional spammers, seeking to tout their "place" (to sell domains). Now that we've crossed that threshold (spam removed) it's time to move on.

As stated above, we have discussed this topic many times. There's nothing new to gain. Therefore this thread is now closed and locked. Due to spamming this topic - places to sell domains - will not be covered again any time soon.

It's 2010. There's no mystery to this issue that the slighest of effort can't unveil. Junk don't sell. Good domains sell themselves. The major aftermarket players are well established -> good luck competing.

To the "new place to sell" promotional spammers - I'm sure you can compete as there's more than enough junk domains to be listed everywhere . . in hopes of finding a buyer. But for openers you need to work on the "trust issues" for your new service. You DON'T build trust in your website/service by spamming forums.

At least not the forums that frown upon promotional posts. ;0/
