How to Buy a Domain Name

Looking to buy a domain name for your business, but don’t know where to begin? Read on for some helpful tips on how to buy a domain name.

HUNDREDS OF DOMAINS CHANGE HANDS EVERY DAY

A marketplace like BrandBucket can guide you from beginning to end, from secure checkout to successful transfer.
However, if you're doing it alone, these are the four things to keep in mind.

Agree on price

Unlike BrandBucket, most domain sales sites expect you to negotiate. Getting a neutral evaluation can be tough, so try to define a budget and what the name is worth to your business. Once you’ve done that, put in a reasonable but not overtop offer. You want to pay what the domain is worth, not more.

Choose a registrar

A registrar is a company that keeps an official record of your domain names. You'll pay them to renew your names (about $10 per year) and to keep your contact information up-to-date. There are many options when it comes to registrars, so make sure to compare the benefits and pricing of each before you decide on one.

Secure escrow

Using a trusted third-party is critical to keep both you and the seller honest and moving forward. Funds are held until the domain successfully changes hands. Make sure to factor this into your costs, as third party escrow services can have fees up to 20%.

Start the transfer

Moving the domain from the seller's registrar to your registrar is called a transfer. Each transfer is unique and can require several verification steps. Due to ICAAN regulations (the committee that manages domain names), it is generally faster to transfer a domain to another account on the same registrar, as opposed to a different one.

BUYING A DOMAIN IS BETTER WITH BRANDBUCKET

With our large selection of curated business domains, upfront pricing, and domain concierge services, BrandBucket provides an unparalleled domain buying experience. Once you go BrandBucket, you won’t want to purchase a domain anywhere else.

Thousands of Curated Domains

It’s much easier to find and purchase an amazing domain name with BrandBucket. All our domains are handpicked for their brandability and linguistic qualities, and we’ve got a ton of great options in every industry and style.

Upfront Pricing

One of the biggest obstacles to buying a domain is finding out how much it costs. You’ve got to put time and energy into contacting a seller, and you aren’t even guarantee a response, making it hard to compare options and move forward with a purchase. At BrandBucket, all our names have upfront pricing and are 100% available

Search with Superpowers

Many domain marketplaces have a search functionality that only shows you exactly what you searched for, not what you are looking for. BrandBucket’s context driven search takes your initial search term, and generates out of the box ideas that you may not have thought of on your own.

Guaranteed Transfer Service

With BrandBucket, you don’t have to go through the hassle of finding a third-party service to ensure a secure domain transaction. We’ve got our own in-house transfer team that will make the domain transfer experience easy and free.
