While working on our own startup ideas we noticed how difficult it was to find good business names, especially since they needed an accompanying domain name in today's high-tech world. And with millions of businesses around the world competing for customer attention, the brand name becomes ever so important. A premium name can help a company stand out from the crowd. However, finding a great domain name is like looking for a needle in the haystack.
This is why we built Alter, a domain marketplace that connects entrepreneurs with premium business names. Domains found on our marketplace are carefully hand-picked and professionally appraised by our team of branding experts.
These are the benefits of selling your domain names on the Alter marketplace.
We market your names across the internet to find buyers.
A professionally designed logo is included with every name.
List your names anywhere else or delist them at any time.
No Hidden Fees
There are no listing fees, logo fees, or withdrawal fees.
We charge a 10% commission fee when your name sells.
How It Works
1. Submit Domains
Submit your domain names for consideration. If accepted, our team will professionally appraise them and ask you for approval to continue with their marketplace listings. This process takes about 24-72 hours on average.
2. Verify Ownership
To continue listing your domains with us, simply verify and forward them to our site by changing their nameservers to Alter's. Domains must be pointed to our nameservers at all times while on our marketplace.
3. List Domains
Once verified, we'll create professional logos and descriptions for your domain names. Then we'll list them on our marketplace with thousands of potential buyers. This process takes another 24-72 hours on average.
4. Cash Out
When a domain is sold and we've secured payment from the buyer, we'll send you transfer instructions. Once it's transferred, we'll deposit your profit into your account balance which you can cash out at any time.
