Is it safe to purchase a domain here?

Absolutely, purchasing a domain through our website is a secure and transparent process. Most domain transactions are conducted through intermediaries to ensure safety for both the buyer and the seller. Here’s a brief overview of how this process works:

Using Intermediaries: When you decide to purchase a domain, you can do so through intermediary platforms like Dan or Sedo, with the latter being a global leader in the secondary domain market. These intermediaries handle the payment and domain transfer process to ensure a secure and smooth transaction for both parties.

  • Purchase Process: Once you choose a domain and complete the purchase process, the money is securely held with the intermediary.
  • Domain Transfer: The domain is transferred to the buyer. This can be done via a change of access credentials or through a transfer code.
  • Payment to Seller: Once the buyer has received and verified the domain, the intermediary releases the funds to the seller, thus securely completing the transaction.

Direct Purchase through Registrars: You can also opt to purchase domains directly through known domain registrars like sav.com, dynadot.com, or namecheap.com. All listed domains associated with these registrars are indeed registered with them, facilitating and speeding up the transfer process.

  • 5% Discount: Additionally, by purchasing directly through these registrars using the links provided on our website, you will enjoy a 5% discount compared to purchasing through intermediary platforms.

This process ensures your money is only transferred to the seller once you have received the domain, providing an additional layer of security and confidence in your purchase.

How do I transfer the domain to my current registrar?

The transfer of a domain can vary depending on the method and platform used for the purchase. Below, we provide a general guide on how the transfer of a domain is conducted from the buyer's perspective:

Purchasing through Intermediaries (such as Sedo or Dan):

  • Obtain Authorization Code: After purchase, the seller will provide you with an authorization code (or EPP key). This code is necessary to authorize the domain transfer to another registrar.
  • Initiate Transfer: Access the registrar to which you wish to transfer the domain, find the "Transfer Domain" option, and enter the domain name and authorization code when prompted.
  • Await Completion: The transfer can take from a few hours up to 5-7 days, depending on the registrars involved.
  • Transfer Confirmation: You will receive confirmation from the new registrar once the transfer has been completed, and the domain will appear in your account with them.

Purchasing Directly through Registrars (such as Dynadot, Sav, or Namecheap):

If you choose to purchase a domain directly through registrars like Dynadot, Sav, or Namecheap, and this option is available, the domain transfer will be practically immediate upon completing the payment. In this case, the domain will automatically be added to your account with the registrar once the transaction has been successfully processed.

It's important to note that you can transfer your domain to any registrar you prefer, providing you with flexibility and control over your domain management.

What is a domain registrar, and why do I need one?

A domain registrar is an accredited entity or company that is authorized to register and manage domain names on the internet. Domain registrars facilitate the purchase, sale, transfer, and overall management of domains to ensure they are unique and properly configured on the network.

When you purchase an already registered domain, especially in the secondary market, it's crucial to interact with domain registrars for several reasons:

  • Domain Management: Once you acquire a domain, you'll need a registrar to manage and configure its details, such as the IP address it points to, the Domain Name System (DNS) settings, and other technical and administrative settings.
  • Transfer of Ownership: When purchasing an already registered domain, the registrar facilitates the secure transfer of the domain from the seller to the buyer, ensuring the domain is transferred correctly and ownership is securely updated.
  • Security: Registrars provide tools and options to secure your domain, such as protection against unauthorized transfers, two-factor authentication, and other security measures to protect your digital investment.
  • Renewal and Maintenance: Registrars also allow you to renew your domain, ensuring you maintain ownership of it and prevent it from expiring and being acquired by another person or entity.
  • Technical Support: They offer assistance and technical support to help you with any issues or questions you may have regarding your domain management.

In summary, a domain registrar is essential for any buyer in the already registered domain market, as it provides the necessary tools and services to manage, transfer, and secure your domain effectively and securely.

Can I finance the purchase of a domain, or do I need to pay the full amount immediately?

Yes, in some cases, it is possible to finance the purchase of a domain and pay the amount in installments. The availability of this option may depend on the domain's seller and sale price.

When browsing our platform and viewing a domain of interest, if the installment payment option is available, this will be clearly indicated on the domain details page. The terms and conditions of the financing plan, such as the duration of the plan and monthly payments, will also be provided so you have all the necessary information to make an informed decision.

It's important to mention that during the financing period, the domain may be transferred to your account, but full ownership will not be transferred until the final payment has been made. Ensure you read and understand all terms before committing to a financing plan for a domain.

Can I negotiate the price of a domain listed on the website?

No, the prices of domains listed on our website are already adjusted and are final. We strive to offer high-quality domains at affordable and fair prices for our customers. Each domain has been valued according to various factors, such as length, keyword, and TLD (Top-Level Domain), to ensure the price reflects its market value. Therefore, negotiations on listed prices are not accepted, as we believe all our domains are offered at fair and accessible prices.

Are all domains listed on GenericNames.net owned by the platform, or do they also act as intermediaries for third-party sellers?

Yes, all domains listed on GenericNames.net are our exclusive property. We do not act as intermediaries or brokers and do not list or sell domains from third parties. This allows us to have full control over the domains we offer, ensuring the quality and authenticity of each one, and facilitating a more direct and straightforward transfer process for our buyers.
