Auction domains with a guaranteed sale

When you offer a domain as "Make Offer" at a negotiable price, as soon as you receive the first bid you can start an auction – with a sales guarantee!

The original bid is automatically taken as the opening bid and minimum price. During the remaining auction period, interested parties can still place higher bids. The highlight: Since your first bidder has already committed to buying the domain at the minimum price, your auction is guaranteed to end with the sale of your domain!

Selling my domain in a Direct Auction worked out wonderfully. I was surprised by how many bids I received!


My Top Domain was accepted for the GreatDomains auction, which is why my domain appeared in the Sedo newsletter. Awesome!


As my asking price had already been reached through negotiation, I started a Marketplace Auction. The additional bids gave me a nice profit!
