List of Facebook groups for selling or buying domain names & websites

26 replies
Here's a list of Facebook groups you can use for selling/buying domain names & websites. Some of these groups do a poor job of moderation or approving new members. Some groups are only for domain name discussion so don't post domain/websites for sale there. I find these groups are best for getting initial bids on auction sites (Flippa, Freemarket, Sedo, GoDaddyAuctions, etc...). In domain auction sites, getting those initial bids get you noticed so $1 start prices will increase your chances of getting bids & hopefully a larger sale. Note - you can use reserve prices on your auctions to protect yourself. I have had a 4-figure offer on one domain a while back in a group so you can get some serious buyer interest on occasion but personally I don't post non-auction domain names in groups any longer. I've found posting the list of groups I utilize in a WORD file for a quick click to the groups to post is the most time-efficient by the way. Daily bumps will likely get you booted from groups so I generally will just post the domains I'm auctioning (with links) & then do a bump on the last day of the auction.

I also recommend using namepros.com to promote domain names for sale or for purchasing domain names. In those forums & facebook groups, you can snag a good name cheap because sometimes buyers let good names sell for a low price - I've been on both sides of that coin. However - 98%+ of the domain names I see for sale are "not too good" IMO.


Let me know of other related groups & I also will update this list on occasion. Sometimes they change names or close down.

      Well they all have real people, real sellers & real buyers. The fact is that the real buyers are greatly outnumbered by the real sellers. That is true in every domain name venue (FB groups, forums, auction sites, subscribers of broker newsletters).

      Another reality is that the overwhelming majority of names posted for sale are bad (not worth the registration fee IMO)... but every once in a while good names are listed. I've bought a few great names that I resold for much more. Unfortunately I also have sold names too cheap only to see it sold for much more later on.

        And how do you make a transaction safe, with a trusted buyer/seller, without getting ripped off ?

        Thank you

          Thank you
          Well as I recommended in my post "I find these groups are best for getting initial bids on auction sites (Flippa, Freemarket, Sedo, GoDaddyAuctions, etc...)" With these auction sites they do a tremendous job protecting the sellers and buyers. If you provide a link to to a "for sale" post in a forum in a group - usually the potential buyer/seller who comments/posts in the forum will have a forum reputation track record from past transactions.

          For larger transactions instead of using Paypal, Escrow.com is the common method used for transactions. Paypal can protect you to a point as if you made a purchase but the name wasn't transferred then you can file a complaint but I'd recommend using your credit card for Paypal transactions for an additional layer of protection. If you sell a name via Paypal & the buyer tries to claim they didn't receive the name after you transferred it - make sure you have an email confirmation trail you can send Paypal showing you did transfer the name. I'd also recommend using an instant push at your registrar if you are the seller or at their registrar if you are the buyer. That way the domain transfer process is completed general within 24 hours & often within minutes. In auctions sales or in forum sales, sometimes the buyer chooses to transfer the names to their registrar which takes 5-6 days. As a buyer, I prefer to have control of the name as rapidly as possible by creating an account at their registrar for having the name pushed to me. However - I have transferred names to my registrar with sellers being established forum members.

          Out of 1000+ domains I've sold over the past 16 years, I've had only one issue. It was an auction sale of a name I sold through the old Afternic I'm guessing 13 years.ago. Someone used a stolen credit card to make domain purchases. Afternic didn't catch it till they had already sent me a check but told me not to cash it as the sale was void. They also aided in contacting the receiving registrar & my registrar to rapidly get my domain back.

          That's one thing about domain names is if they are stolen by account hack or credit card fraud, unlike physical property you know where they are at. Often receiving & transferring registrars work together to rectify things & generally the criminal is far away at that point. Registrars don't want a bad rep. However this is not always the case regarding stolen domain names & disaster stories exist for people having names stolen or having unknowingly purchased stolen domain names.

          Now I have sold names where I took a check & waited until the check cleared before I transferred the name. I also have financed/leased names with rights to purchase. In that situation I maintained control of the domain & just changed the nameserver to their desired nameserver at my registrar. Escrow.com also will handle finance/lease domain sales as well but I did it personally.

          Common sense should protect people as well. If you see someone on Facebook or a new member on a domain name forum selling a great name for a fraction of actual value plus requires you to send a wire payment to an overseas account... something could likely up. Require the transaction to go thru Escrow. Check the domain whois records to confirm they own the name.

    Escrow . com, with a fee of 25 USD for a 50 $ transaction, seems quite crazy.

    Any other reputable escrow websites?

    wentzco, your post would be indeed valuable if you can also write the number of members that each group has.

    because many groups from your list are inactive, deleted, without any posts since march 2015,
    or have 49 total members, all of them inactive...

    Can you really trust escrow.com ?

    I see revivews and they have had sellers get ripped off.

    They said you will transfer your domain to buyer, then buyer has 3-4 days to inspect.
    Inspect what? it is a name, that won't change and not anything physical. it is not even software.

    Have you ever sold a car via ebay and buyer gets 3-4 days to inspect then you get your money?
    or you buy real estate, move-in not like it, That is not escrow.

    then buyer changes mind, then no money to you and you are out of a domain name as they are the owner now. why dooesn't escrow.com have the domain name transferred to escrow.com and not buyer..

    seems very risky to me.

      I've never had a problem with Escrow. If you have transferred the name to the buyer... that means they already paid into Escrow. Escrow won't refund the buyer after they have received the name which can be verified by a whois search. https://www.escrow.com/services/doma...website-escrow . I've never heard of a buyer changing their mind for a domain name that they already paid into Escrow for & even then it's too late if they have received the name.

      As far as the inspection period - set it for 1 day. https://www.escrow.com/support/faqs/...g-does-it-last . That's how I have it set up for people that purchase via my domainnamesales.com landing pages.

    namepros.com/threads/possible-escrow-scam.635883/

    This to me is the most mind-boggling part . what am I missing?

    "Step 4: Buyer Receives Domain Name(s)

    The Buyer has a set number of days for inspecting the domain name(s) and the option to accept or reject."

    what is there to accept or reject? or inspect, It is a domain name they wanted to buy and negotiated for. It is not a car where they can have a car mechanic inspect it and not make an offer.
