My first question is Are common web hosting services like 123 reg the same as shared web hosting services? Thanks for any response. My other question... For the first time I am looking to try and sell a HostGator name outside of a HostGator forum. The name I want to sell is

I plan on emailing some organizations that deal with disease research and see if they are interested. Can anyone think of any specific organizations that I should approach with this name?.

Would these organizations look down upon me for approaching them and trying to sell them a .org HostGator name, especially if they are a nonprofit organization?.

I found a thread that has a lot of letter examples so I think I am o.k. in that department. If a company does want to buy the name, would they just cut me a check and then I transfer the name once the funds clear? Any legal stuff I need to worry about? I have only used PayPal before when I sold some names..

Any other tips you guys could give me would be great? Thanks for your time...

You betcha! but you might wanna make sure and wait for another member to confirm it as I am not confident. Better yet, why don't you call the 123 reg guys because they can give you help better...

I would suggest that you never state a price. Why state you would sell at $5k when your buyer might be willing to buy at $10k..

On the multiple email question. I haven't been in that situation so hopefully another member can help you out here..

Sending out an email multiple times is SPAM. Don't do it. ALWAYS send out these kinds of email individually...

Comment #3

Yeah, if I send multiple e-mails to the same person. I am smarter than that. I have no intentions of SPAMming anyone..

I was talking about sending to multiple organizations. Should I wait for a response from one organization or should I send out multiple e-mails to multiple organizations instead of waiting for responses?.

So far I have sent 3 e-mails to 3 organizations that were on the first page of google for disease research and funding, or something like that, can't remember of the top of my head what keywords I used. Do I just sit and play the waiting game? Or do I pursue other organizations and continue sending out e-mails? If down the road these organizations reply to me and multiple ones show interest, do I try to start a bidding frenzy?..

Be prepared that selling is never a easy thing to do. They may not reply to you, they.

May not even interested in it etc...

Comment #5

As I've already stated. Sending the same email in bulk to multiple recipients is SPAM. don't do it. Sending the same email multiple times to different recipients isn't spam...

Comment #6

And as I have already stated, in the post that you quoted, just not in the same words, I am not sending out the same e-mail in BULK, and nowhere did I use the word BULK. I said MULTIPLE e-mails to MULTIPLE recipients. I read that as 1 e-mail per 1 recipient, multiple times, but I guess I could have typed it a little more clear. Sorry for the confusion..

I handwrite each e-mail and I send it to one e-mail address. I search around and find a different organization and then I write another, different, proposal aimed at that organization...

Just to clarify RockDiesel what I think you are doing isn't spam. So I don't see a problem..

1 email to 1 recipient is the way to go. Clearly not spam. Glad we could clear that up...
