How to acquire a domain you don’t own
Remember that one time that you thought of that perfect domain name for your new venture, and when you went to register it, it was already taken?
Seeing that message can be really discouraging. And it, unfortunately, happens fairly often. The next time you see that message pop up that says “Sorry, this domain is taken,” don’t give up. Instead, here is exactly what you should do.
Step one: Call/email your Premier Services account manager at GoDaddy with the domain you’d like, along with your budget for that domain.
I know what you’re thinking. “Why would I call my account manager when I can just use the Domain Buy Service and start the process?”
The answer is, you can do that, but your Premier Services account manager is your partner in domain investing.
We know domain investing — it’s what we do every day for GoDaddy and our clients. We will act on your behalf and work diligently to acquire that domain for you.
So, the next time that perfect domain pops into your head and you see that it’s already taken, call your trusted account manager and let us handle it for you.
