Heart Internet, a web hosting provider, announced on Thursday a brand new service that allows their customers to sell their domain names quickly and easily through their domain control panel. The customers will now be able to make money on the domains they own by selling them through a global domain name marketplace.
According to a Heart Internet blog post, customers can sell com, .net, .org, .co, .me, .biz, and .info domains registered/renewed or transferred since May 31, 2012(and that have not been registered or last transferred less than 60 days ago).
Simply list a domain name and your chosen price through the domain management section of your control panel. When a potential buyer comes across your name via type-in or the search engines, or uses our regular domain name search for a name that is similar or an exact match to yours, they can see that your premium domain name is available to purchase. They add the domain to their basket and check out as normal, and you are notified that you have sold a domain and automatically given the commission. Head to Manage Domain Names and then click ‘Sell This Domain. Then simply fill out the details to list the domain name of your choice.
“The option to sell your domain gives customers the chance to make money on domains they no longer want, rather than just wait for it to run down and expire,” Heart Internet director Jonathan Brealey said in a statement. “Lots more people are prepared to buy domains at a higher rate in order to secure the ideal name for their website, this feature allows our customers to take advantage of that demand.”
Heart Internet recently offered their customers the Serif WebPlus X6 website building package for free and also helped its customers comply with the new EU cookie law by offering a free widget.
