Buying a premium domain name is an important business decision, and our team is here to help you every step of the way. We guarantee a safe and smooth transaction through DomainNameSales.com.
Don’t forget that you can contact our team with questions at any point in this process.
Step 1: Submit an Inquiry
From the domain you are interested in, click “Inquire Now” and submit your basic information through the form provided. You will be asked to confirm your email address so we can ensure that we are dealing with an authentic person before engaging the domain’s registrant.
Step 2: Negotiate a Price
One of our brokers will contact you with instructions to submit an offer for the domain. In some cases, the registrant will provide us a minimum price that we will share with you. Before sending your offer, consider the rating of the domain and other factors that will determine its value.
Next, the registrant will either accept your bid or place a counter-offer. We will continue to work with you to arrive at a price that works for both you and the registrant.
Step 3: Finalize the Deal
DomainNameSales.com uses Escrow.com to ensure that transactions are completed safely and fairly for all parties. Escrow accepts your payment and holds the funds in trust until the domain name is irrevocably in your possession.
You will be provided a link to Escrow upon agreement of pricing and terms. You will be asked to sign up, accept terms, and set up the payment. More information on the payment process can be found at Escrow.com.
A transfer code (EPP) will then be provided to you so that you can transfer the domain to your own registrar. It is important to note that you will need your own registrar (such as GoDaddy or Network Solutions) to complete this step, as the existing one does not support retail registrations.
Most domain name transfers take approximately 5 business days. In some cases, depending on the current registrar of the site, a domain name will qualify for express transfer and you can get your name even faster.
