After registering my domain name, I discovered that the company purchased the ".club" and ".online" domains as well.

To sell my domain name, I plan to reach out to the company directly. However, I am not familiar with the best approach for direct sales. Additionally, I am interested in learning about any services that can provide protection for both the seller and buyer.

As a novice in this field, any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated.


If a domain is registered with a Sedo partner registrar, Sedo will ensure that the domain is transferred to the buyer even if the former owner doesn't want to do so. In this case, additional advertising is organized on the websites of all other Sedo registrar partners. It makes sense to purchase domains from one of the partner-registrars of the Sedo auction if you plan on selling on Sedo.

Sedo has not been an auction in the traditional sense for some time. Domain names are displayed on the platform and can be sold for an extended period of time. Domains that receive at least one request to buy are permitted before the auction. Sedo then commences the auction, setting the starting price to the size of the price offered by the first buyer. During the auction, the price may rise, and the winner gets the domain.

However, if you are not familiar with this field, it may be challenging to sell domains. Out of ten occupied domains, seven are available for purchase. There are few buyers, but many domain sellers. Only domain registrars and auctions that assist with selling domains earn profits. Without purchasing additional services for the sale of a domain, there is little chance of attaching your domain for free. Still, purchasing a service from the auction to promote the domain being sold does not guarantee a sale.


One way to sell a domain is by utilizing the services of a guarantor, an intermediary who ensures that both parties receive what they agreed upon.

The process involves finding a guarantor with whom both the seller and buyer agree to work. Then, the seller transfers the domain data to the guarantor while the buyer transfers the funds in the amount agreed upon. The guarantor then transfers the domain data to the buyer and the money to the seller. A fee for the services is charged by the guarantor, which is previously negotiated between the parties.

Anyone can serve as a guarantor, not just those specializing in domain transactions. However, it's crucial to find a trustworthy individual with a proven reputation and positive reviews; otherwise, there's a risk of losing both the domain and the payment.


As a domain name seller, reaching out to the company directly can be a good approach to initiate a sale. Firstly, prepare a professional and concise email or letter introducing yourself and your domain name. Clearly express your interest in selling the domain and highlight its potential value to the company.

To protect both the buyer and seller, consider using an escrow service. This third-party intermediary holds the funds from the buyer while the domain is transferred, ensuring a secure transaction for both parties. Popular escrow services for domain name sales include and

When negotiating the sale, research the market value of similar domain names to set a realistic selling price. Be prepared to negotiate and be flexible, but also know your minimum acceptable price.

Lastly, ensure all communication and agreements are documented in writing to avoid any misunderstandings. Good luck with your domain name sale! If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out.

When reaching out to the company for a direct sale, it's important to do some research on the company's activities and business objectives. Tailoring your approach to highlight how your domain name could align with their brand or strategy can greatly increase the chances of a successful sale.

Additionally, consider using a domain broker who specializes in facilitating domain name sales. Professional domain brokers have experience negotiating deals and can help you navigate the process while safeguarding your interests.

In terms of protecting both the buyer and seller, it's important to use a secure and trusted payment method. Escrow services, as mentioned earlier, are highly recommended for this purpose. They act as neutral third parties to ensure that the transaction is completed satisfactorily for both sides.

As a novice in the field, consider joining domain name forums and communities where you can learn from the experiences of others and gain valuable insights into the industry. These platforms can provide valuable tips and best practices for selling domain names and connect you with potential buyers.

Patience and persistence are key when it comes to domain name sales. It may take time to find the right buyer and negotiate a deal that satisfies both parties. Good luck with your domain name sale, and I hope these additional insights are helpful to you.
