How does it work?
The process is simple:
step 1Find your domain. Search and choose the domain you want. If it is already registered, you’ll have the option to purchase the Domain Concierge service at checkout.
step 2Enter your budget. If you're not sure, order our professional assessment for a complete assessment and recommendation on an estimated price you can expect.
step 3Let us get to work. We'll reach out to the registrant on your behalf to engage them in negotiation. After 90 days, if we can't engage the current domain owner in negotiations, we will credit this charge back to your account. We'll work to get you the best price while communicating with you throughout the process.
Domain Concierge Service FAQ
Many times the domain name you have your heart set on is already registered and owned by someone else. This doesn't mean that the name isn't for sale, after all, anything is for sale at the right price, right?
If you want to purchase a name that is already registered by someone else, you can use our experienced domain brokers to reach out to the registrant to negotiate a sale on your behalf. We typically have a higher success rate through our established network of contacts and years of experience in engaging uninterested sellers.
You can always try to negotiate the purchase of a domain name yourself, but you may not make much progress on your own or may tip off the registrant to interest by your company (which may instantly drive their price up). By keeping our buyers anonymous, and leveraging our networks and experience, we usually have a greater chance of success at obtaining your name at the best price possible.
If you're not sure what your offer price and budget should be, let us provide you with a full professional assessment which includes ownership history, hosting and DNS history, traffic information, comparable sales, and a pricing valuation and recommendation. Just choose this option at checkout and one of our experts will be in touch and start working on this right away for you.
There are no guarantees with negotiating a purchase of a domain name from an existing registrant. We guarantee we'll do the best we can to engage the registrant and negotiate the best price possible for you. And if we can't engage the registrant, we'll refund your service fee.
The Domain Concierge service starts at 199.00 USD. This includes engagement of the registrant and negotiation based on the budget you give us. We'll let you know if the budget is out of line or if we feel it is not reasonable for the name you are trying to acquire. If we cannot engage the registrant, your 199.00 USD is refunded to you, otherwise it is non-refundable.
If a price is negotiated and agreed to, our fee is 18% of the negotiated price plus a processing fee of 4% (waived if paid by wire), and a 3.5% escrow fee to take care of the exchange. You'll also be responsible for one year of registration.
After 90 days, if we are unable to engage the current domain owner in negotiations on your behalf, we will credit the original 199.00 USD fee back to your account.
If we engage the domain owner but cannot start or complete negotiations, or if the owner indicates that the domain is not for sale, the 199.00 USD fee will not be credited back, but you have no further obligation. Should the domain owner reach out to us in the future wishing to negotiate, we will contact you to determine if you still have interest in the domain.
