You should take advantage of all the choices that you have because there are many places to park your domain this days, try them out for a week each and after that you can come to a conclusion on your own, as to who is better (which service converts more traffic and earns more money) for your domains. Sedo is pretty good if you have the right keywords for you and one thing good about them is that you can pretty much control your own keywords by self-optimizing them whenever you want, as often as you want.
For selling domains... Sedo and Afternic are both proven leaders, but personally I prefer sedo, that is because they are more globalized and that streches the market much further which is really great... More exposure and a broader audience!

I would much rather have them spend the time optimizing it, and giving me a higher revenue share. I'm spending way too much time optimizing at the moment.
hiOsilver said:Your domains automatically optimize at Domain Sponsor, but the process takes anywhere from 2 days to 3 weeks for a domain. So, your portfolio will start to generate income right away, but you will not see the full potential for 3 weeks.

Nameable said:Funny, I've found a lot of domains on DS Premier have a big pop the first few days or first week while the extra links at the top are displayed - after a few searches have been performed and it's starting to optimize, but before it's fully optimized and showing the 5 links - but then income drops off as I get into the second or third week (exact amount of time depends on traffic and searches).
So I'd say at DS the "full potential" is realized during the initial optimization phase on some domains... you really need to leave domains there for several weeks to see what the income stream will look like.
I got similar results with domain hop. Sedo tends to have steadier income. I definitely prefer domain sponsor due to the link structure (you don't have to submit each domain, just link with your acct id), reliable payments, and good per-click rates. I'm still evaluating domain hop - they seem to have higher per-click rates, but my early results show I'm get fewer clicks than with DS Premier on the same domains.
Just my $.02
