I was wondering if I could still sell it on Is there still a way for a buyer to use it without sending them my original software that I built it on? Not sure how selling websites all works.

Yes, you can sell websites without them having access to the software. The selling process is actually fairly basic, and it is all explained by - you can pretty much auction off your website like you were selling something on eBay.
