    Just wondering how I'd go about selling my site/domain name. Domain was bought from Register and made with Wordpress on a Hostgator plan. I'm thinking of selling it because its not ranking like I thought it would, (I suck at SEO, but someone good with SEO could easily rank it higher than the page 8 its on since the keywords are in a cute niche). How would I go about giving them the info? Would I have to give them the hostgator account its on or what? Sorry I'm new at site flipping and this was my first site.

    Easiest way is to have them make an account on the same registrar you used and transfer it to them through your registrar. To give them the site, you can transfer the hosting account (if it's the only site on the account), or give them all the files to put on their own server.

    There is no any problem of hacking or scam. Even though it happens, you can recover it easily. Just give a try.
