Domain Sales

Regarding acquiring a premium website address on the aftermarket, the purchase and transfer of a domain is a simple process. I have conducted 1000's of domain related transactions on the behalf of clients and am able to assist throughout. Most transactions are completed within 1 to 3 business days.



Domain Transfer
GoDaddy is used as the domain registrar. The Buyer will need to have a GoDaddy account. Please create one here (free), if you don't already have one. I will contact you regarding your GoDaddy customer number or ID, including the associated email address, which is needed in order to initiate the transfer. Domains are transferred free of charge.

Domain Escrow
Escrow.com is used as the transaction facilitator. The Buyer will need to have a Escrow.com account. Please create one here (free), if you don't already have one. Escrow.com makes domain transactions quick easy and secure. Abbreviated overview of the escrow process:
  1. Buyer and Seller Agree to Terms
    Both parties agree to terms of the transaction, which includes the domain name(s) and sale price.
  2. The Buyer Pays Escrow.com
    The Buyer submits a payment, selecting wire transfer or in some cases PayPal, credit card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa) or check/money order. Escrow.com verifies good funds and updates the website to prompt the seller to transfer the domain. Payment options and Process times vary.
  3. The Seller indicates the Domain Name Transfer Process Has Started
    After payment is secure, the seller is prompted to work with the buyer and the registrar to transfer the domain ownership to the buyer. Each domain registrar has a different procedure to transfer domain ownership.
  4. Domain Registration Transferred by the Registrar
    The inspection period is started once the Buyer indicates control or Escrow.com confirms the WHOIS information reflects the Buyer's customer profile. The Buyer confirms full control through the registrar and accepts the domain on the Escrow.com site.
  5. The Seller is Paid by Escrow.com
    When Escrow.com can verify the domain has been transferred to the Buyer and the inspection period has ended, the Seller is paid. The transaction is complete.
Escrow costs are split 50/50 between buyer and seller (escrow fee calculator). Standard service escrow fee applies.

IMPORTANT
Buyers, make sure that your contact information is the same for both Escrow.com and GoDaddy accounts- name, company, address, email and phone.

Escrow must be funded within 72 hours of acceptance of an offer. Escrow funding period begins with sent date and time on offer acceptance email. Offers not funded within 72 hours will be considered null and void.
