A premium domain name is a name that contains certain characteristics causing it to be valued more highly than others.
There are usually multiple reasons behind this but typically revolve around the domain name being a combination of concise, catchy, brandable, memorable, descriptive, containing important keywords, and/or uniquely appealing for specific reasons.
Each domain name is completely unique as there is only one like it in the world.
Good domain names can sell for as little as a few hundred dollars to tens of millions of dollars for ultra premium one or two word domain names.

Yes. We have bought and sold thousands of domain names over the past 20+ years.
The process that we use to buy and sell domain names through Escrow.com is considered to be the most secure (for both parties) in the entire industry.
The bottom line is this: if you don’t receive your domain name, you keep your funds.
Most domain sales are typically processed within 24-48 hours.
The majority of our domains are registered through GoDaddy.com.
If you have an account there, or decide to set up a new account there, we can “push” your new domain over to your GoDaddy account very quickly, usually in a few hours.
If not, we can simply transfer your new domain name to any registrar you’d like.
Escrow.com is a trusted, independent, 3rd party, global, escrow services company.
Since they are an independent, 3rd party company, they protect both the buyer and the seller in the transaction.
If the buyer doesn’t perform, they don’t get their domain name.
If the seller doesn’t perform, they don’t get compensated.
Escrow.com accepts most major forms of payment like Bank Wires, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, & more.
Escrow.com has a long history of safe & secure domain transactions.
We can usually find another workaround as long as both parties are protected.
As soon as funds are received and confirmed through Escrow.com, your domain name is then transferred to your specified domain registrar.
Once you take delivery/possession of your new domain, and confirm custody of it in your account with GoDaddy, etc., you are now the proud owner of your new domain name. Congrats!
You can use any domain registrar you would like.
That being said, most of our domain names are held with GoDaddy and we find the quickest turnaround to be with them since we can simply “push” the domain name to your GoDaddy account.
This method is the fastest way we’ve found to rapidly expedite most transactions.
From there, once you own your new domain name, you can transfer it away from GoDaddy to another domain registrar if you’d like.

Over the years we have acquired many domain names that were originally purchased & earmarked for specific development projects that got shelved for various reasons.

If you are interested in a specific type of name, let us know.
We’ll let you know if we have something that might work for your project.
