SitePoint Spins out website marketplace as Flippa.com

According to the folks behind SitePoint their Marketplace has outgrown its tab on Sitepoint.com.

For this marketplace to remain the #1 location for buying and selling web sites, and for us to properly service the needs of our buyer and seller community, it simply had to have its own identity – it had to be set free from sitepoint.com.

You’ll now find SitePoint‘s Marketplace operating under a new name and identity at Flippa.com.

Why are we writing about an uber-marketplace from down-under that has been selling 7-figures worth of websites on a monthly basis here on Techvibes? SitePoint was founded by Australian Mark Harbottle and Vancouverite Matt Mickiewicz.

Mickiewicz was involved in the successful spin-off of SitePoint contests into design site 99designs.com and is at it again with Flippa.com.
