27 Free Places to List Your Domains For Sale

By on January 24, 2011

There are lots of great marketplaces available today to feature your domain names for sale. However, some marketplaces and auction houses require listing fees or membership subscriptions. These fees may end up causing you to lose money if your domain doesn’t sell, especially if you are just getting started and are not absolutely sure of the value of your domains.

Consider this list an added resource or continuation of my article on 5 Tips on Selling Domains for Maximum Profit. If you’re looking to reach a wide audience of fellow domainers, webmasters and resellers then this list is for you. Earn some extra cash or liquidate your portfolio with no upfront expenses.

    I’m glad that you specified that these places are for “if you’re looking to reach a wide audience of fellow domainers, webmasters and resellers”. Very true, especially because these places do little to no marketing of your domains (hence why they are free). It’s more costly to market to end users…buyers that are more picky but that usually have more money to spend on the right domain.
