What is NamePros?

NamePros.com is the premier online community for domain name investors. It includes discussion threads, an educational blog, and even its own domain marketplace. In short, using it will open the door to a whole new world of domain investors and the knowledge they can provide.

What Can You Do On NamePros?

Short answer: pretty much anything related to domain investing and domain sales and purchases. Here are a few of the notable things you can use it for: 

Network With Domain Investors

On the meet and greet forum, introduce yourself and get to know people in the community who share your interests. 

The Networking Meet and Greet page

Ask Questions

Domain Name Discussion is the place to ask questions and share your knowledge. You can easily view discussions you participated in and where you were the thread starter. 

The Domain Name Discussion page

Learn From the Blog

The NamePros blog is a great resource for news, events, interviews, and sales strategy for the domain name industry.

Buy and Sell Domains on Their Marketplace

NamePros has their own domain marketplace where you can create Buy It Now (BIN) listings, start domain auctions, and create offer-only listings. We wouldn’t recommend using it as the only place you list your domains, but it’s a great addition to your rotation if investors are your target audience.

Promote External Domain Auctions

If you listed a domain for auction somewhere else and aren’t getting as many bids as you hoped, promote it on this thread. Browse it if you’re looking for auctions and aren’t picky about the platform they’re on.

Request Domains

Looking for .xyz domains with geographic keywords? Try the Domain Buyer Requests tab, formerly known as Domain Names Wanted.

Appraise Domains

Some domain investors use appraisal tools like Estibot or Flippa. Others get them from NamePros. Any user can get a free domain appraisal from the community. Members with gold accounts can get professional appraisals. A domain is worth what people are willing to pay for it, so it makes perfect sense to ask people who could be buyers.
