My current focus is exploring how to maximize profits when selling domain names to established businesses. However, direct negotiations often result in low-ball offers which doesn't align with our goals.

So I'm wondering, are there any reputable brokerage agencies or private brokers that specialize in working with established companies? Working with such a broker who has a proven track record of successful high-value sales would increase the chances of us securing a lucrative deal. Do you know of any brokers that fit this criteria and have experience in persuading potential buyers to invest in premium domain names?


Assuming you have an English domain name portfolio in the .com zone, it's important to note that any other zones may not attract serious brokers. There are two ways a broker can help you: either by actively selling your domain names or by responding to requests on your behalf. If you want the broker to actively sell your domain, it needs to be a strong one-word keyword and have a minimum price of $XX,xхx. Serious brokers only work with high-quality inventory and won't settle for anything less.

While you can try to reach out to any broker, they may not attract the same audience and come with different pricing. Alternatively, if you're just looking to respond to requests, there are many options available like DNS. By enabling the domain broker option, you can sit back and let the broker handle everything for you.


DNS has been discussed on a forum before, and it appears that Uniregistry Market has now opened, possibly leading to the closure of DNS. You can now manage your domains for sale through your Uniregistry account. Additionally, you can enable brokers in Premium services through your account, though it's unclear if they'll activate automatically or if a request is necessary.

Uniregistry Market is advantageous because it accepts simpler domain names, unlike DNS which had more stringent requirements. I've heard that payment can be made with any currency, but I haven't verified this myself. While I only have 20 domains in Uniregistry, I personally prefer DNS as their selection process seems more thorough.

If you still have any unanswered questions, feel free to ask what specifically interests you!


There are a couple of ways to sell a domain. Firstly, you can create a page on the domain advertising that it's for sale and add information about the sale to the Whois service.

Assuming you find a potential buyer, the next step would be to negotiate terms and transfer the domain. However, both parties assume certain risks as there's a chance that one party may refuse to fulfill their obligations. To mitigate these risks, parties often draw up a written contract. While a contract doesn't guarantee a successful domain transfer, it can serve as evidence in court if either side doesn't uphold the terms of the agreement.

However, signing a contract isn't always convenient, especially if the buyer and seller are located in different cities or countries. Negotiations and sending documents for signing by mail could take a long time.
