Your question was: Do you think it's better to sell domain names on Sedo or GoDaddy? Explain.?.
Well I don't think people would be interested in buying those as many websites offer free subdomains... and people like the word free....
Some people like quality, and will pay for it. If they can't afford the whole enchilada, *maybe* a subdomain of a sufficiently high-quality HostGator would attract some buyers..
Would have to be a solid, substantial presence though - regging the name for the next 10 years would be just the tip of the iceberg of steps necessary to address concerns about longevity. Seems like a lot of work to build and brand - not sure if it would be the best option for the vast majority of domains, but maybe there are a few that make sense to "develop" a subdomain leasing business around .....
I suppose the only one people would be interested is .com.xx names (.xx country extension). Not as easy as it sounds though...
Check out the guys at CentralNic.net.
They sell subdomains of US.com, No.com, EU.com, etc.
Its risky because your name essentially depends on the HostGator name owner. I wouldn't go this route...
I think she's looking to sell subdomains, not buy them, so there really isn't much risk for her...
The name has to be really ultra generic to sell subdomains. And it has to be something "cool". Loans.com wouldn't work well as a subdomain.
I think Geo names could work well as subdomains. If I lived in New York, I wouldn't mind owning MyName.NewYork.com, or ...something that CoolHotmail is doing with email addresses..
Yes it is Risky if you are the buyer - I got an email saying they are cancelling all their web.com subdomains.

Yeah but I think you would need some good lawyers on your side to avoid possibly getting sued.
If a company built a business on one of your sub domains (like .web.com) and built up alot of traffic, customer base etc I would think some of them would put up a fight if - one day, you decided to bail out.
Yeah, leasing would be more secure for the HostGator owner. But then who wants to develop on a name that may not last? Maybe something for advertising promos where they already know it is temporary:.
People buy condominiums, seems like subdomains is a similar idea...
Thanks for all the feedback- yeah I was looking to sell not buy- had an idea with one of my domains and wasnt sure all what was involved- might not be the way to go..
If you wanna make it BIG, you gotta think out of the box. Example.
If I own a HostGator like blog.com, then I would surely start selling subdomains for 1 dollar a year.
And I would provide free blog hosting like blogspot.com, and a good blogging interface for them.
A HostGator like blog dot com will surely receive thousands and thousands of type in traffic monthly. and who knows perhaps 50,000 people will buy my subdomain...
