Ever searched for a domain name only to find that it’s already taken?
Or perhaps you found an available domain but its price is a lot higher than all the other ones you’ve seen?
Then you’ve already come across the world of premium domain names.
Premium domains are exactly what they sound like.
They are domains that are more expensive than normal.
There are many reasons why a domain will be considered premium,
but it is usually clear why one domain name is worth more than another. For example,
it shouldn’t be a big surprise that madbor.com would be worth more than automotive-in4mation123.biz.
In this article, we’ll go over what exactly a premium domain name is and how you can get one for yourself.
Premium Domain Name Definition
A premium domain name is a domain that is already owned by a person or registry.
Its cost can be significantly more than a typical domain purchase —anywhere from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of dollars — due to its perceived higher value.
The higher price will apply to the initial acquisition of the domain, but it will renew at the regular renewal price for whichever domain extension it uses.
How To Buy A Premium Domain
Buying a premium domain that the owner has listed on an aftermarket marketplace works just the same as purchasing a regular domain name:
- Search for a domain.
- Add the domain to your cart.
- Sign in or create an account with your domain provider if you don’t have one already.
- Enter your contact information.
- Check out.
You’ll then be the proud owner of a new domain name, and it will renew at the extension’s regular price for any subsequent years that you own the domain.
Behind the scenes, a number of things can happen that will affect the time it takes to transfer ownership over to you.
Some services make this process easy and others require a bit of back and forth,
which can take a few minutes or a week as we gather the necessary information and make sure everything is transferred smoothly.
Whatever the specifics may be, we’ll handle it for you and ensure a secure transfer.
