Reselling Domain Names: How Much Is My Domain
When going into the business of reselling domain names, this
is the first question most novices ask. However, determining the value of a domain can be quite complicated
because there really isn’t a market price you can go off of.
When it comes to domains, their value is usually dictated by
what the buyer is willing to pay and what the seller is willing to accept. However, there are certain steps

professional appraiser only if you are convinced the domain is highly valuable. Additionally, you should only
use free appraisals as a guideline rather than immutable truth.
