    Selling a domain - procedures

    Hello, I am not sure if I am posting in the right forum... please move it to the proper forum if not the case.

    I would like to know what are the procedures in selling a domain name...

    Let's say, I have a domain with GoDaddy and I what to sell it... what I need to do if I have a buyer for it?

    Thank you!

    And get a signed contract, too, or use escrow so you don't get scammed.

    Thumbs up Escrow services

    FYI - I have used Sedo (www.sedo.com) to buy and sell domain names, and the process was very thorough and professional.

    Thumbs up Internet is life

    The Internet is just another aspect of our lives. Scam artists lived long before technology, and will continue to do so. Being prepared and thorough as possible is the best you can do.

    It depends partly on how much you trust the buyer, and partly how much the domain is sold for. If you are selling it for $50 you'd be wasting a lot of money to do it through escrow.

    LOL, of course people should be careful when dealing with large sums of money. Especially over the Internet where you have no clue who you are dealing with.
