Buying a Domain Name From a Third Party

What happens if the domain name you want is already owned by a third party?

In this case, unless you believe you have a fundamental legal right to the domain name and are prepared to undertake a UDRP dispute or other legal action against the domain name’s current owner, there’s only one thing left for you to do: make an offer to buy the domain name directly from the current owner.

While nothing can guarantee the success of any particular transaction (much will depend on the current use of the domain name, and what the current owner values the name at), the right approach can increase your chance of completing a successful transaction while at the same time reducing the amount you’ll have to pay to secure the domain name.

If you already know which domain name you want to buy, you can move on to the initial approach to the “seller”. If you’re not yet certain which domain name you’re interested in, or if you want to explore the options available to you, then read on.

    • You can check an automated service like http://www.estibot.com to help you come up with a figure to make an offer. Then you should check WHOIS and contact the domain owner with your offer. Alternatively, you can work with a broker who could help you acquire the domain and negotiate on your behalf.


  2. Hello!
    I want to buy a domain, should I sign any contract with the seller, or should I just acquire username and password from him?

    Best regards,

    Joe.
