How To Sell Your Blog – Part 2
- 7 Comment
Developing a website for sale can be time consuming, especially if you want to make a lot of money. I wrote a few tips about how to sell your blog. The tips included having value, determining a price, then finding a platform to sell it on.
Well what happens after you find that buyer?
This has always scared me a bit. I know basics about hosting and Wordpress, I am by no means an expert. After I had a buyer for the sale of my blog, Blogging Addiction, I decided to turn to my hosting for some help.
I got some great support from Hostmonster about what I needed.
First, I needed to set up an FTP account that was just for that domain. The FTP account is needed so all of the files could be downloaded to move. This is fairly simple, just go into your hosting CPanel under FTP accounts. Make sure to include the directory that you need.
Secondly I just made another admin account for wordpress and sent the buyer the login for that. Now that they have the access to all the files, the last thing is the domain transfer.
I buy my domains at GoDaddy. Transfering a domain on Godaddy is also fairly easy. Just go to My Domains and select one. Select account change. Now you just need to know the buyers information like login name and email. After the transfer, the buyer simply needs to “accept” it. My domain transfer was over within a day.
Selling a blog can be a bit confusing and a tad scary, but it’s all experience. Now I feel confident in getting into website and domain selling.
