These three companies are still buying domain names in the down market.
Domain buyers are fewer and further between in this down economy. But that doesn’t mean they don’t exist. Here are three companies that still want to buy your domain names.
Oversee.net – parent company of Moniker, SnapNames, and DomainSponsor. Oversee.net is still buying domains and portfolios of domains. You shouldn’t expect to sell for what you would have two years ago, but the company still allocates a significant amount of cash to buying. The company will consider any non-trademarked, non-adult names. Although the company doesn’t divulge how it values domains, its seller inquiry form focuses on traffic and revenue.
NameMedia – parent company of BuyDomains, Afternic, and three domain parking companies. NameMedia sells domain names to end users, so domains need not have traffic as much as end user appeal. The company typically sells domains for $500-$5,000. It also understands it may hold onto the domains it buys for many years before selling them. So don’t expect to sell domains to NameMedia for what you could sell them to one-off investors. They buy in bulk and buy quickly. It’s called liquidity. You can submit your domains online at BuyDomains.
National A-1 – don’t try to sell your entire portfolio of decent domains to National A-1. They’re only looking for the CrÃ¨me de la CrÃ¨me. Category Killers. Here are some examples of domains they’ve purchased: free.com, fun.com, cash.com, divorce.com. National A-1 is looking for premium generics, especially ones that make sense for ecommerce web sites. It doesn’t hurt to have the singular and plural version of the domain, too. You can learn more about and contact National A-1 at here.
