Domain Broker Service: a buyer's roadmap

Choosing a domain is one of the most important pieces for your online presence. But sometimes that perfect domain is already registered to someone else. Fortunately, we have a solution — Domain Broker Service, or DBS. Our professional Domain Broker Agents will make every reasonable attempt to contact the current domain name owner to try and negotiate its purchase on your behalf. Follow this guide for a step-by-step walk through of the process.

1: Set your domain budget for DBS

Start by setting the budget you're prepared to spend for your perfect domain name.

2: Consultation & negotiation for DBS

Your Domain Broker Agent will contact you to review your information. Then, they'll contact the current domain owner on your behalf and attempt to negotiate a sale price.

3: Pay for your new DBS domain

Once a price is agreed on, you'll make the payment and buy your new domain.

4: Transfer your DBS domain

We'll help you transfer your new domain to your account so you can begin your online adventure.
