7 of the Best Marketplaces for Website Flipping

Websites are now a very important thing for businesses. Some websites are the bread and butter of their businesses. They are used for various purposes like information sharing or blogging, business promotion, and e-commerce. Their number of uses are increasing and the number of websites on the internet is skyrocketing.

Websites are now regarded as a serious businesses and they are being looked at more and more as sources of incomes versus the hobbies they once were. There are sites on Google where one can sell and buy websites if they so choose. The practice of selling and buying websites is called “website flipping”. Through website flipping, the most valuable websites can even be sold for billions of dollars. The domains alone are also sold with these platforms. Thus, the buy sell website model is a proven business model and a highly profitable one too.

In this article, I will discuss some websites flipping platforms where you can easily sell websites and domains:

1. Flippa

Probably the pioneer and the leader of this business, Flippa was the first site to start domain selling and buying platforms and providing all the support to the business owners who wanted to do it. There are literally thousands of sites and domains listed on it. The site works with escrow protection for secure payments and to avoid any frauds or scams. The sites and domains are sold within an auction system. The auction works through bidding where interested customers bid the price for the site and it is up to the seller to accept it or not. There is also an absolute price, and if the customer pays the absolute price, then the site is sold to him or her on the spot and all the bids that follow are rejected.

2. Trademysite

Trademysite is a new platform for business owners to sell their sites, but being new doesn’t mean that they don’t know what they’re doing. They are quite professional and the platform is a really excellent one. For now, they are starting with small and medium business sites and, after that success, it will be scaled to feature sites from large businesses as well. They already have customers and contracts and their customers are from a range of different countries like the USA, Australia, Ireland, and Malaysia. Now that the owners have acquired investments from some business tycoons, rest assured that it is a good buy sell website platform.

3. Afternic

Afternic is yet another popular site for selling and buying domains. There are a number of sites that are in partnership with the Afternic and once you list your site there, it will automatically be visible to the other buy sell website platforms that they are in partnership with. They are also offering parking services for the domains they have available.

4. Freemarket

Freemarket is a newly started website by the team who was behind the site freelancers.com. It is a good platform for users to list their websites or to buy some valuable domains. The unique thing about them is that they only charge 5% commission per sale, so you will receive the maximum amount of money in your hands, which is a difference for some other sites that might charge an arm and a leg as a commission fee.

5. Digital Point Forum

Digital Point Forum is another decent platform for flipping websites, as well as domain. Although it is not as recommended by users of other platforms that have been mentioned, if you use it correctly, you can really find some great potential buyers. It is more suited for the webmasters and freelancers looking for more ways to earn online than anything else.

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

Does technology have all the answers?

This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

Creating technological solutions transparently

This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

Technology as the connecting tool

Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

“Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
