GoDaddy’s Newest Tool Makes It Easy to Sell Unused Domain Names

When an entrepreneur has a business idea, often one of the first actions they take is buying a domain name. However, not all of these business ideas come to fruition, and sometimes these domain names go unused. Now, GoDaddy has a solution so entrepreneurs – and anyone who has purchased a domain name in the past – can earn a profit on any dormant domain names sitting in their account.

List for Sale is a service that enables GoDaddy customers to easily list their unused domain names for free and earn extra cash. Customers only pay a small commission if the domain sells. List for Sale takes the hassle out of selling a domain name with an easy three-step process: 1) GoDaddy domain owners simply click the “List for Sale” button in their domain control center, 2) set a sales price; they can use GoDaddy’s GoValue for an estimated appraisal and enable a “For Sale” landing page to let anyone know their domain is for sale, and 3) the domain is listed on Afternic, a GoDaddy brand and the world's largest domain marketplace.

Since List for Sale launched in beta in January, GoDaddy customers have already found great success with the tool, with the highest domain name sold at $57,500.

Here are two customers who successfully sold domains for the first-time using List for Sale.

Bobby J. Gallo, a GoDaddy customer, first purchased over twenty years ago when he ran a school for magicians. Over the years, as people started to turn to YouTube for magic lessons, Bobby pivoted his business and transitioned to a GoDaddy WordPress blog. The domain sat in Bobby's account untouched for the past five years, that is until the introduction of GoDaddy’s List for Sale tool. Through List for Sale, Bobby successfully sold for $4,500.

Another customer, John Mize, bought over ten years ago when he got his personal trainer certification. He ended up buying a different domain which he has been using over the years, and when List for Sale was introduced, he realized he could sell his for a good profit. He recently sold the domain for $500.

GoDaddy is always looking for ways to help entrepreneurs make their online presence work better for them, and List for Sale is one more way to do it.
