What is a Domain Name?

A domain name uniquely identifies a website. 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 are also referred to as: aftermarket domains, secondary market domains, high-value domains, great domains, or top domains. These 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.

How does a domain transaction work?

First off, 24hournames takes security very seriously. All transactions and information are 100% secure with us and our payment partners Undeveloped. No need to worry!

Most of our transactions are handled through these two methods. Transactions under $5,000 are generally handled through PayPal unless the buyer is a new client who we are not familiar with or who is uncomfortable with paying us directly. All transactions over $5,000 are usually handled through Escrow.com unless specifically requested otherwise by buyer or seller. Escrow.com is the leader in internet escrow services. It is fast, easy & free to setup an account, and there is no safer or more secure way to handle a domain transaction! We have used Escrow.com to settle many 7 figure domain sales for us – you are in good hands.

How Can Payment Be Made?

We currently accept all major credit cards, PayPal and Wire Transfer. Our website is secure and we have performed thousands of transactions over the last several years. If these methods are not an option for you, we also support payments through Escrow.com with the buyer paying the escrow fees. Please contact sales@domainmarket.com for more information.

What Is The Transfer Process?

After we've received payment we will verify the purchase you have made and begin the process to transfer the domain into your own account. Since domain transfers are a manual process, it usually takes 3-7 business days to complete. Once complete, we will contact you via email with the transfer instructions to take control of your new domain. Once you have control you may move the domain to a new registrar if you wish.

  1. Create and verify an Escrow.com account here - do not create a transaction.
  2. Send your username (email address) to your evergreen. broker.
  3. Your evergreen. broker will create a secure transaction between all parties.
  4. Follow the steps provided by Escrow.com.
    • Your evergreen. broker will assist you throughout the process, including a domain transfer-in/out, if required.
  5. Once funds have been cleared and transfer(s) completed, the transaction will be closed.

After we have received payment we will verify the purchase and transfer the domain to your own account at the domain's current registrar. Since domain transfers are a manual process, it can take up to 24 to 72 hours to transfer the domain to the buyer's account. Once you have received access to your account with the domain's current registrar you will be able to move the domain to the registrar of your choosing.

Are your domain name transactions confidential?

24hournames will always consider your offer; however, our pricing may or may not be negotiable, depending upon the domain itself. The value of a domain is based on a number of factors, including, but not limited to: comparable sales, the length of the domain, and the meaning behind the name itself. We aim to sell our domains instantly through affordable pricing so most of the time, we won't be able to offer any discount on a domain name.

For how long should I register my domain?

Domains have annual renewal fees and we advise you to renew your domain for multiple years at a time. Annual renewal fees vary depending upon the registrar, and typical registration fees run between $8 and $30 annually. Once you purchase a domain, you will be responsible for maintaining the domain's registration.

I own domain names that I would like to sell. Can 24hournames.com list them for sale?

Not today. 24hournames receives frequent requests to provide listing and brokerage services. While this is something we may consider in the future, we are not currently offering this service. However, we would be happy to buy your domain names if there's value in them.
