Where to buy and sell domains

DNForum: Big and active forum with free membership. Some sections are restricted to paid members. Free to post your domain/s for sale.

SEDO: Another big domain trading location where domains are posted with fixed price or left to auction. Not a forum but a listing service with various add-ons like an escrow facility. Free to post but SEDO take a big cut from the eventual sale.

AfterNIC (owned, like BuyDomains, by NameMedia):  Like Sedo, AfterNIC is an auction listing house with a collection of the same add-on services - like the lucrative domain valuation/appraisal. Most of these big domain destinations do also offer domain parking.

NamePros: Forum with free posting.

(Registration required, of course, but there's no charge)

Digital Point: A webmaster forum with a section for buying and selling domains (and sites). Free to list.

Sitepoint: Same as above but with a charge to list (premium domains and domain name classifieds)

Great Domains: A smaller player but they tend to get some good domains occasionally.

Quik Internet: A small UK company that, from my personal experience, provides great service.

Picking up names that have expired/are expiring:

Enom: An 800 pound gorilla in the drop catch business.

Snap Names: A place to pick up those domains that have either expired or which owners forgot to renew.

Club Drop: Same as snapnames. (added: now moved to NameJet) A big name in drop catch

Many of the forums offer free peer appraisals if you have a limited number of domains you'd like valued. When presented to a prospective buyer those appraisals won't look as professional as valuations done by SEDO, AfterNIC etc., but experienced buyers tend to ignore all third party valuations anyway.

For valuations of websites (rather than domains) we recommend that there's no tool better than our own e-business valuation tool.
