Hi everyone,

I have the domain to: http://www.comicswriter.com , but I'm not planning on renewing it. Obviously, I don't want it to be bought up by a porn site or something non-comicbook related. How does one go about auctioning it off? All proceeds will go towards paying my artists.

You can utilize several afternic solutions. You can find these on reputable registrars like GoDaddy, Register.com, Network Solutions. You can also alternatively auction it on eBay.com. Of course it's hard to guarantee if the winning party won't utilize it for something other than comics.

How much do you expect to get out of it?

I have NO idea. It's not something I've looked into before.

I wouldn't have too high of expectations for the resell value. I sold one on ebay a couple years ago for $50. At the time the price hadn't dropped out and $50 was about the cheapest you could get a domain. I think you might still be able to get that price today, but you'd really have to find someone who really wanted it.

I'd personally offer maybe $10-15 for it. Maybe ... lol ... that's all I need is another domain.

Network Solution sold one of my domains for me. I got a nice $90 check for doing nothing.

I was thinking $20-$30, but...WOW!

What was your site name, porn.com? :p

it was comicart-l.org but it was purchased by a porn site and then by someone else.

If you owned porn.com, I bet you could earn a few hundred thousand off that.

Maybe you should buy it. Seriously. No-one ever remembers biz ... it's the bane of all dots, that and .info ...

I'd try to offer it to people on here.

Try to get a coalition of 5 or 6 people to use it together.

I"ll give you $10 for it and I'm not a comicswriter per se. :D

You should be very exclusive to your crap. In fact, I don't think any one would mind if you signed an exclusive contract with Mr. Toillette. I hear he likes crap. :D

Okay, if I want to set up an auction here at DW, do I need to move this to a different section, or is it okay to keep it in Creator Community?

Maybe I should just keep it as PM?

I don't think you can effectively auction it off here. Maybe try selling it on ebay.

How much do you want for the domain? At least, what's your starting bid going to be on eBay?

If it goes to auction, I'll bid.

Okay,

I've started receiving bids by PM and email (LabBratz at hotmail.com ). I'd rather not go to ebay with this. Anyone not from around here with BIG money is likely a porn site, and I don't feel comfortable with that.

Right now the highest bid stands at $35.

I'll update over the next few days if it goes higher.

Thanks,

Ed
