Flippa is a marketplace for buying and selling websites, domains and iOS apps, based in Melbourne, Australia and San Francisco.[1] Flippa was founded by Mark Harbottle and Matt Mickiewicz as the SitePoint Marketplace,[2] and was spun off as a separate website in June, 2009.[2] By 2015, it had traded more than $130 million in websites and domains.[3][4]

Notable websites and domains sold through Flippa have included Mark Zuckerberg's former website Facemash, overnight success story, shipyourenemiesglitter.com (Jan 2015), Retweet.com and StockPhoto.com.[2][5][6][7][8] During the 2012 US Presidential election, the domain name RomneyRyan.com was listed on Flippa, but did not sell.[9][10]
