    Hi All,

    Am finding that listing domains just on Dan.com or Sedo quite limiting, and want to expand the exposure of domains that I have.

    I see a lot of talk of Afternic and GoDaddy and others, is there a workflow to listing a domain in multiple places that people use for increased visibility? Changing the DNS for a sales lander removes the ability to add a txt record with my domain registrar.

    Any help greatly appreciated!!

    My workflow is usually:
    - Go to your domain settings
    - Add txt records for sedo and godaddy
    - Add the domain to sedo and godaddy
    - add the domain to afternic
    - check if the domain is added and live in all the marketplace
    - change the dns to whatever landing page you want ( Dan in your case )

    Maybe we should mention that these require exclusivity.

    how to you manage the conflict (if any) when the domain would automatically get listed on godaddy through afternic dls? Also I’m assuming that you don’t opt for sedo mls in your workflow. Thanks in advance

    Listing on Sedo; worst and time-consuming.

    Sure, Sedo sells, but they are most annoying, more than all the other marketplace combined. List at @Sedo last. verify; or remove Sedo!

    @Sedo’s the exception. the most cumbersome

    Yeah. I don't love Sedo's backend (or front-end, for that matter), but about 90% of my sales have been on Sedo, so I always list there first.

    I actually used to think Afternic was the worst, 7-8 years ago. Their system for adding domains was so clunky that I got frustrated and didn't log in for several years.

    They're better now, of course.

    I'm back after a hiatus (I never stopped selling names; just needed to focus on real life and my job), so I have yet to fully explore DAN and SquadHelp, and some of the newer marketplaces.

    It's always been a challenge keeping things organized and keeping track of listings. I have a lot of things as "make offer" just to be safe.

    The same domain name in the management of multiple platforms, which is a very troublesome thing
