Case Study: Comparing 5 Different Domain Sale Page Options

efty landing pages

I’ve been talking a lot lately about Domain Sales Pages. If you don’t know what these are, they are the landing pages that can be put on an unused domain name, often instead of a parking page, to let people know the domain is for sale.

The reason I’ve been talking about this more frequently is because both parking and mini-sites have gone the way of the dodo which means that if you want to do something with your domain names that generates revenue, it’s going to be a sale, not monetization.

While I know this might be a controversial thing to say, I’m not afraid to say it since I wouldn’t want to mislead new Domainers into thinking that they can buy domains, put up a site or a parked page, and just sit back while the money comes in, that’s just not realistic any more. What you can do is give your domains the best chance of selling, which means making sure anyone that goes to your domain name sees very clearly that it is for sale.

Of course, not all Domain Sales Pages are created equal and I think it’s time to do a deep dive comparing the top five options. Here are the five services I’ve decided to compare:

  1. Uniregistry/Domain Name Sales
  2. Afternic
  3. Efty
  4. Undeveloped
  5. Flippa

While I know there are more options out there I wanted to pick what I thought the top five choices. Before I get started let me know if you think there’s someone on this list who shouldn’t be there, and if so who they should be replaced with?

    Unfortunately, I would rank Uniregistry at last.
    Go visit your Uniregistry parked domains (sales page) with ad block…
    I don’t like loosing a lead because of a “blank” page..

    Hi Morgan why you have not added Sedo,nowadays sedo is doing more sales in my opinion,If you look at dnjournals last three sales report you will see sedo is dominating the chart.

      @SMM – I haven’t been super impressed with Sedo’s landing pages – I think a lot of the Sedo sales come directly from the marketplaces, not because someone is using their parking service. Anyone else have any feedback there? I feel like I’d have a hard time justifying why Sedo’s “For Sale” pages should boot anyone else on this list.

    Post of interest

    Uniregistry.com Market for what it does if you do Marketplace and Brokerage Domainnamesales.com and right where this domain parking is promised total innovation zero I do not see or find, since the same use of other companies, where the headquarters is located ..

    Afternic.com be Godaddy, not sold anything you have to have influences to sell domains Pigeon shits, nor your domain parking make money is another world.

    Efty.com more or less like in your day Protrada

    Undeveloped.com by what you see is similar to the previous one

    Flippa.com, Decisions of the past are the same evils of now result, problems in bids, change by not changing new ways of doing things, you see too much everything to do wrong, I be scammed they give up I do not want to spend courts, I find the problem Flippa accept, they themselves make clear that having had problems. In this 2016 still having problems, too clear to leave another person in an interview on Domain Name Wire

    Final conundrum which is better to see bid with or without innovations there is nothing everything is the same as before including Sedo

    In my opinion sedo is best. I have very positive experience with them till now. However afternic should get 2nd rank in my opinion.
