Don’t you just hate when you have a bunch of extra domains laying around, just taking up space and cluttering thing up?
Heart Internet, a U.K.-based Web hosting provider, totally agrees with you, that’s why it is adding a new feature to its control panel that makes it easy for customers to sell their unwanted domains, which certainly beats just letting them hang around until they expire. It’s also a nice way to maybe make a little back on one’s initial domain investment, as domain names on the secondary marketplace are more likely to be purchased for a premium price by people searching for specific domains related to their brands.
Shoppers can see the domains up for purchase in their search results, and the system will allow them to buy the name at a price determined by its current owner. All they have to do is add it to their cart, and then the seller will be notified of the sale (and then paid, of course).
Basically, it’s giving sellers an opportunity to make money on domains they don’t even want anymore, and helping others buy up domains they want for their brands without having to fight for them once they expire and return to the general marketplace. Plus, it will likely offer lower service charges for domain sales, meaning sellers can make even more money on the deal. It’s a win-win situation.
Heart customers will be able to sell .com, .net, .org, .co, .me, .biz and .info domains that they have registered, renewed or transferred since May 31 of 2012. They can also provide a brokerage service for the people who buy their domains.
