    Aptly put. Thanks for this great piece of information. I'm particularly interested in the business plan aspect.

    Hello again @Bob Hawkes
    Hello everybody

    I have a 5N.com that i wanna list for sale
    Do you advise Namejet ?
    My 2nd question...
    I saw on namebio that the venue that have the most important number of sales is Godaddy
    I don't like to have my names there, I use dynadot mostly recently, Do you think I can list for sale on godaddy even if my domains are at other registrars?

    Thanks my friends

    Sorry for great delay in responding. I do essentially no outbound personally, so not knowledgeable directly on this. My thought would be that it would be preferable to use a company one with a website if you have one. If the gmail was part of a full professionally looking signature, I am not sure the difference would be that great. But to get an answer from someone who really does outbound, see the links in the outbound section of Part 3 that I just posted today:
    https://www.namepros.com/blog/domai...otion-udrp-parking-website-resources.1254523/

    In particular, the first segment of the interview that @James Iles did with @Mike Robertson deals with what email to use and your signature. Here is the direct link to that:

    Sorry again for the delay in responding, @NewDayBrand .

    Bob

    I'm afraid that I have never owned a 5N or 6N name, so never tried to sell one. They are most popular in China, so you want a market that reaches there effectively. I am not sure which that is, perhaps other readers who sell numerics successfully can respond, please. Re NameJet, I think (could be wrong) the majority of their sales are from expiring and expired names, and I honestly don't know much about user sales there. Some years ago it seemed slow and somewhat complex to list (see e.g. https://www.namepros.com/threads/how-to-list-domain-for-auction-at-namejet.1118743/). I believe they have made it easy now if you have names at NetworkSolutions (become verified, then ask your account to be made NameJet compatible as I understand it), but most do not.

    First of all it is important to realize that the vast majority of GoDaddy listed sales on NameBio are from the expiry stream (expiring, closeouts), and not from user auctions. Because many venues do not have sales reported on NameBio, one must be careful in concluding things about which venues sell best. The main retail channels are Afternic, Sedo, Dan, and then brandable places like SquadHelp and BrandBucket and others, and hybrid places like Alter. But most sales from those places are not in NameBio (sales of $2000+ from Sedo are, unless privacy bought).

    To answer your second question, for sure you can list at GoDaddy names registered other places if you have an inexpensive annual GoDaddy auction membership. I believe if they sell, the name does get transferred then to GoDaddy, though.

    Hope this helps, and sorry for long delay in answering your questions. I hope others will provide input on where is good to sell a numeric domain name.

    Bob

    Your answer was very helpful.
    Btw i realize more and more that namebio is a great database.
    I saw that names related to india get sold on daaz.com for example and learned many things
    I will definitely take your advice and be more careful in deducing conclusions ;)
    Peace
