    Webvertise - Possibly selling domain
    I have had this name since 1997. A few years ago I put some links on it so that I can make some bucks. In 1997 my goal was to build a huge ad network (I should have done it..grrr) I have never promoted the site, or anything. I do use it to run an ad server serving some small social networks.

    Anyways the domain I am contemplating selling is:

    webvertise (dot) com

    I have had some business groups contact me directly, and the offers have been a pleasant surprise. I can either sell it or continue to learn this business and use it down the road. Anyways, what do you guys think? What could I sell this for?

    It all boils down to the question: what is the minimum price you would feel comfortable selling at?

    good point. I probably would not sell for any amount less than the offer I have on the table. Are you interested?

    Yeah, these pre-2000 domains are only going to be worth more as the internet evolves. It is kinda like collecting old baseball cards. Just pick a player from any pre-1960 set and you will see they are worth a lot of money, regardless of skill level. Good luck on your sale and remember to use an escrow service.

    Escrow.com (anything), Sedo (domains), & Afternic (domains) all offer this service.

    I have used all 3 services and they didn't have any problems for my transactions.

    I have been happy with Escrow .com on a couple of mid-4-figure domain deals, both buying and selling. I have also used SEDO's escrow service, but that was on a few domains listed with them. Supposedly Moniker's escrow service is also highly rated, but I have not yet had the opportunity to try them.

    Moniker has a rather popular auction every year, some inordinantly high prices shelled out. You might consider talking with them, and putting an opening reserve on it. I would take it slow before committing to selling this domain, it is extremely valuable, IMO, potentially a life altering amount.
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    What's your min asking price - touch base with me and I'll see if it's worth making an offer.

    Escrow.com - excellent service, used it primarily as a seller.
    SEDO - ok so far
    Moniker - heard good things, no experience yet

    cheers
