My first question is: How to remove advertisement at (free hosting)?.

My next question is: How much do they charge for a basic HostGator sale? Do they charge listing fees etc or just a percentage of the sale price?.

I have a bunch of domains that expire in June and I would like to sell them if possible...

Your question was: How to remove advertisement at (free hosting)?. is 20% of what the HostGator sells for, BUT for the HostGator to be listed it must be 6 months away from expiring minimum. is 10% of what the HostGator sells for if you use Standard promotion or 20% for Expanded promotion.

So in short, no fees just for listing...

Afternic also has an annual $20 registration fee. I have names with both Sedo (free) and Afternic ($20) but so far they have both proved equally useful (i.e. not useful at all) to get people to actually look at your names or put in a bid seems to be an art which I have not mastered - if anyone can explain how it's done I for one would be most grateful..

Comment #2

I forgot about that fee... It's been awhile.

To get people to bid or see your names, you have to Promote them! Plus Quality never hurts, good prices etc...

Comment #3

Lol, yeah, me too, id love to know...without of course having to fork out the fees for 'featuring' them, which are pretty darn high imo, likely more than you would get back when sold, unless the name is very good quality...

Comment #4

Yofie - how do you promote them ? Do you mean paying for special listings or is there some other way ?

Comment #5

Agreed. Yolfie I'd love to read an article on DotWeekly about this. It seems there's a big need out there.....

Well, FREE promotion is Always the best. You can do this via a blog if you have one. You can create Text Links to your HostGator listing page by posting on HostGator forums (signature, posts etc) or a forum that is fitting to your HostGator Outside the HostGator industry. You can post an ad on if you would like. Create a little video and put it on YouTube! Use Facebook and MySpace. Try to think outside the box and not just promoting on "domain" type sites.

So paying to be "featured on Sedo" makes no sense to me. They do not advertise very much, if at all, so most people that would see it are domainers.... which read blogs and go to forums etc... where you can post for free most of the time!.

You can also create a write-up about your HostGator name(s) and submit it to "News" sites.

For paid advertising, sometimes you have to Spend money to Make money! Banner ads on sites that pertain to your domain. Again, think OUTSIDE of the HostGator industry. Buy peoples Signature spaces, or there Avatars for a week or month. Most people will offer them pretty cheap. It cost $50 to list your HostGator on top of and I think that is a Deal (not sure if they still offer this). A lot of people go to in a day, that $50 will get a lot of eye's on your domain!. sends out his "newsletter" but charges 10% when he sells, but that 10% is well spent on the amount of people that see the newsletter/domains.

With selling any domain, it's all about finding the right person and that can take Time. Unless somebody is looking for that specific domain, it doesn't hurt to put it out there so a lot more people see it also. The Quality of the HostGator can always play a factor as well so it's always best to buy the good ones!..

Nice work, reads like a how-to and yet i'm sure you just wrote it there and then judging by the time stamps - big rep added...

Comment #8

Ok thanks for the info, rep added.

Just one more question... Would I be able to list domains on Afternic that expire early next month?..
