General Questions

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name uniquely identifies a website. Typing a domain name (also called a URL) into your browser allows you to visit that site. One unique domain name can be used as a company’s web address and for its email addresses. Domains are much more than just names typed into a web browser. Your domain name is how the world will think of you and your business. It’s part of your brand and your marketing plan. You can have multiple domains that each relate to some aspect of your business. A domain should be easy to remember and help establish you on the web.

What are Premium Domains?

Premium Domains have all been previously registered, often because they are popular words or are thought to have great potential for becoming a memorable web address. Premium domains have stronger branding potential, are easier to remember, and attract more traffic than most domains available through standard domain registration.

Does BuyBrands Own The Domains Listed at BuyBrands.com?

Currently, we own all the domain names listed on our site. However, we may also put up for sale brokered domains if we want to.

Will I Own The Domain?

Yes, once purchased it will be moved to your name and you will have full control. After you’ve purchased the domain, you can do anything you want with it.

Does Anything Come With The Domain?

No. No logos, graphics, text or anything else that is currently on the domain you want to buy comes with it. You are buying the domain name only. No hosting, email or other services will be provided by BuyBrands.

For How Long Should I Register My Domains?

You should keep your registration good for at least 1 year. Domains do have yearly renewal fees - and we advise you to renew your domain every year. Once you have purchased the domain from us, this renewal will be through your current registrar. Price varies depending on the registrar and domain name extension (.com, .net, .org, etc), but typically the registration renewal costs around $12.00-$20.00 per year.

Payment Options

Actual payment processing and domain ownership change are done using Escrow Service. Escrow Service reduces the risk of fraud by acting as a trusted third-party that collects, holds and only disburses funds when both Buyers and Sellers are satisfied. By involving a third party to hold funds in safekeeping, buyers and sellers can feel confident about doing business.

Depending on a purchase price, the following payment methods may be available to you:

  • PayPal.com*, headquartered in San Jose (USA).
  • DAN.com, headquartered in Amsterdam (Netherlands).
  • Sedo.com, headquartered in Cologne (Germany) and Boston (USA).
  • Epik.com**, headquartered in Sammamish (USA).

*PayPal does not provide escrow services. The domain transfer will be managed by the BuyBrands team.

**Epik Escrow is not available to residents of Idaho, Texas and Washington.

How Can Payment Be Made?

There are several payment options available, e.g. Bank wire, SEPA, Visa, MasterCard, iDeal, MisterCash, Sofort, Paypal, AliPay, WeChatPay, and Bitcoins.

Sales of Domain Names

All sales are subject to the final approval of BuyBrands.com and we reserve the right to cancel any order at any time during the purchase process for any reason. If payment has been rendered, you will receive a full refund. Once the domain name has been transferred into your name, the name is in your possession and the sale is considered final. It cannot be cancelled anytime after the transfer has occurred.
