Find out how we can help you get the most out of your digital assets.
Domain Name Sales
As the top domain name acquisition broker in the industry, our mission is simple: We bring liquidity to an otherwise non-liquid market.
The first step in our tried and true process is identifying appropriate and qualified end users: businesses and individuals who will get the most value from your digital asset and can pay you what it’s worth.
Our Proactive Approach
Each sale is unique and comes with its unique circumstances. We offer domain name consultations to help you prepare for your journey. Since we’ve been in this business since the beginning, we excel at sales and marketing. We don’t send out mass emails like other brokers. Instead, we pick up the phone and talk directly to decision-makers.
We leverage the trusted reputation and network of relationships we’ve built over decades to get your domain name in front of the buyer who needs it. This will naturally lead to the best price. And there’s no risk because you pay nothing unless we’re successful.
Our Exclusive Broker Agreement
On average, we sell 80% of the domain names we acquire under an exclusive broker agreement. Our brokerage service is 15% of the final domain name sale price, with a minimum of $1,500, and we require an exclusive agreement for the digital assets we represent.
We take this “put a ring on it” approach because we believe presenting the market with a clear, concise narrative about your digital asset is crucial. A single voice, price, and strategy create the best environment for a successful sale.
Understanding the Basics of Domain Name Sales
A basic understanding of the sales process is crucial for anyone looking to sell a website address. In essence, the process involves transferring ownership of a name from one party to another in exchange for a price.
According to Forbes, understanding your digital asset’s value is the key to making a sale. However, the valuation process can be complex, requiring knowledge of the industry and various sales channels.
The History of Selling Domains
Although the Internet started gaining popularity in 1990, the first domain name, symbolics.com, was registered in 1985. Since then, the industry has grown into a thriving market with many brokers, marketplaces, and auction platforms, making selling website addresses easier.
Today, selling these assets is much like selling real estate, with many businesses and domain investors seeking high-end names.
Over the years, selling URLs has become big business, with the highest domain name sales reaching millions. Based on recent domain name sales reported in the DN Journal, six- and seven-figure sales are becoming increasingly common.
With the help of our experienced team, even a fledgling investor could make domain name sales history!
Evaluating a Name’s Value
Proper domain name valuation is crucial to the sales process. We consider these factors when pricing your asset:
- The name’s extension
- Its length and the ease of spelling and pronunciation
- Relevance to an industry or niche
- Search engine optimization (SEO) potential
- Historical sales data of similar website addresses
- Traffic and revenue potential
- Branding and memorability
By carefully analyzing these factors, our team can help determine your asset’s market value and set a fair asking price.
Maximizing Your Profits
If you’re looking to sell a website address, it’s important to understand how to maximize your profits. The following tips will help you make the most money possible from the sale:
- Price your digital asset correctly.
- Negotiate effectively.
- Market to the right buyers.
- Use the industry’s top domain name sales brokerage.
As your broker, we can help you price your asset correctly, negotiate on your behalf, and connect you with potential buyers you may not otherwise reach.
