    What are some good sites besides Flippa/Sedo to sell
    existing domains or internet based companies.

    Thank you.

    All good suggestions. A few tips though:

    * Stay away from DP (at least when you're dealing with domains worth more than 20 bucks). While listing is free and there's indeed quite a bit of traffic, the price you get on DP is typically quite a few TIMES lower than you'd get elsewhere.

    * Similarly, stay away from Flippa. Flippa is for sites, whereas Sedo, Afternic, NamePros, DNForum are for domains. That said, it IS possible to find a good buyer on Flippa, but it isn't likely to happen (Have tested. A lot.)

    * Make sure you know the difference of end-user oriented marketplaces (Sedo, Afternic) and domainer-oriented marketplaces (NamePros, DNForum etc.). Sure, many domainers browse Sedo and similarly some end-users stumble upon NamePros every now and then but as a general rule - you should decide whether your domain has a lot of resell value (and therefore appeals to a domainer) or is it more beneficial to an end-user.

    Good luck!

    Bryanon, thanks for the usefull info. Are there any days to be selling domains. Like with sites it often is that if you use a 7 day auction that starts at wednessday people get the best results

    In my experience with domains they generally take longer to sell than sites. Just like with sites, it really depends how quickly you want to sell it and whether you are prepared to wait for a premium.

    While sites are generally valued (and sold) at a multiple of revenues, domains can be a bit harder to value and really depends on market conditions from what I've seen.

    That said, 7 day auctions have always worked well for me with sites, so don't see any reason why this wouldn't apply to domains too. I like to make it slightly longer (14 days) if it is a premium site ($10k+) so might be something to keep in mind.

    Here's a breakdown of all the main places to sell domains, sites, adult sites, the lot - everything from business brokers to business listing sites to the forums and Flippa type marketplaces are listed.
