    Selling a domain ?

    Is there a proper South African web site where one can sell a domain name?

    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Selling and Trading domains in South Africa never really caught up.

    You can have a look here:

    http://www.domainmarket.co.za/

    However I doubt that site is updated since I own half the domains listed there.

    If you have time to kill I have domainaddict.co.za that can probably be themed in a cybersmart.co.za funky style to create a listing site for SA domains?

    Definitely not updated and current. Checked a few of the domains and they are already deleted from coza domain registry.
    Some high ticket ones have new owners and or parked at sedo.co.uk

    You could use Sedo to list your domains for sale. I did not have much success there. Resorted to keeping mine and developing Made For Adsense type websites, dumping the less profitable ones.

    Agreed!

    I started on flippa yesterday going to see how that goes. 400 domains starts hurting your bank account if they just sit there. Damn my hoarding addictions.

    So if it has never taken off in SA - what is the point of having 400 domains ? Especially if they are "just sitting there"

    I am planning on creating those ventures in time. Sometimes you buy a domain because you think ahh I like the idea of what that can become, but never gotten around to do it.

    And more to your point you will see very little south Africans own SA domains.... The juicy once are mostly owned by US citizens back from the Gandi.net days

    This is something I do not understand. Whenever I look for a domain I check to see what the owners are doing with the ones I want and invariably they are on sale at ridiculously inflated prices. Do they sell? They must sell? There are holding costs or are there? Once a domain reverts to Go Daddy or Enom do they have to pay for holding it?

    They do.

    Go daddy is a scum company they purchased a lot of top tier SA domains and just keep them selling them back at ridiculous prices R10k upwards is not uncommon.


    That said they don't pay the holding fees we pay but they still pay minus the market.
