Top Websites to Buy and Sell Websites and Domains

The art of buying and selling of websites is also referred as “website flipping”. In this post I am sharing a list of websites where you can buy and sell your website or blog. This list includes both premium and free marketplaces. Premium means that they will charge you for placing your website for sale. Usually when a website is purchased or sold, they earn a commission. This commission varies from marketplace to marketplace. As an example if you want to sale a blog or website. First you will add it in the list under the relevant niche. Usually you are allowed to set a price. Then the buyers bid. And the highest bidder buys the website.

It is tricky to set the cost of your website. The price depends on many factors like recent traffic graph, earnings, source of traffic, cost of domain name, quality and quantity of backlinks etc.  Numbers of posts also affect the price of your website.   

Furthermore some niches have low prices and some have really high prices.
Anyhow if you want to buy and sell a website, you can do this on any of these websites. Let’s go through the list.


Flippa is the most popular place to buy and sell the websites. They are the market leaders. Thy have the most active listing directory. 

They offer you both free listing and paid listing. Both listings have their pros and cons. They also allow you to set “Buy it now” price without any auction.

Sedo is a reputed company in terms of buying and selling domains and websites. They offer free listing of website as well as domain name. It gives you access to a lot of potential buyers. After listing your domain or website for sale, you can also submit it for review. The review is always helpful in many ways.
Sedo will deduct 10% as commission on every sale.


Freemarket gives you the opportunity to list your website for free. This mean that no fee for putting your website for sale. It offers you to buy and sell both websites and domain names. However you cannot list subdomains like mysite.blogspot.com etc. It has only 5% commission rate on the sold price. 5% is relatively low as compared to the other competitors. It also has a “Buy it now” feature.
