Best way - how to sell a domain name?

I have a domain name which I used for a non comercial web site I was playing around with, strictly informational site for about two or three years back from 1999 to around 2001 or 2002. I have not used it at all since then, and it is just parked now. It is a dot com. Since I am not using it I figure I may as well try to sell it or autcion it- I thought at some point I would make it active again but just don't have the time - too many projects.

What would be the best way to go about selling it? Are there domain name auction sites?

Also what are the ins and outs - rules of transferring it legally - is there some kind of a transfer of ownership form I need to fill out for selling it?

I have noticed that some people sell domain names on ebay - is this a good idea?

I have never had an offer to sell it to anyone, but it does have a catchy name which I think would have some good uses by various businesses or trade groups.

Thanks for any info.

Just remember that the current "domain name" resale market is a lot weaker than it was a couple of years ago at the height of the Dot-com era. Google "domain name broker" and you will find tons.

the easiest way to do it is just to put a sign 'for sale' to your domain name)
