Selling A Domain Name On Craigslist: NOT

I have to give the folks at Sell-My.com some cred for their post (post appears to be deleted or moved as of 1/1/2010). As a buyer, seller, developer of domains for over 10 years I’m still surprised at some of the wrongfully placed ill-will still out there for folks that buy and sell domain names.

Apparently, Craigslist considers Erotic services less of an evil to society than some entrepreneur trying to sell a domain name. While i’ve been able to successfully sell a couple of geo domains on Craigslist, nearly all of my ads of lately have been flagged for immediate deletion.

So, if you if you provide erotic services and have a credit card, you can do business on Craigslist under a “special” category. The Craigslist police have stated in several posts that domain names are not tangible and you cannot touch them. I guess erotic services are OK because you see and touch the merchandise.

CEO Jim Buckmaster: You are missing an opportunity to earn some additional revenue. Set up a special category for domain name sales and let those of us who are legit pay… or aren’t domain name sales erotic enough?

  1. This is exactly how I feel, and this is the first time I have ran across someone bold enough to express this about CL. I have had my domain names flagged and/or ghosted many times, and thiink that they should just have a special section that cost, maybe a buck or so, so people wont SPAM it.
