Name Pursuit FAQ
What is the value of a Premium Domain Name?
Premium Domain names have more marketing potential than others. Many already receive significant traffic. Your business can reap the benefits from the domain's established presence and attract customers. The first step in establishing a successful and profitable website is to own a domain that is memorable, directly related to your business, and attractive to your target audience.
Why should I buy a Domain Name?
Acquiring a domain name is the first step in building a successful online business. Below are the most popular reasons why individuals and businesses own domain names.
1. Improve Your Marketing and Visibility
The right domain name allows customers an easy way to remember and find you. It's your location on the web. It's also your email address.
2. Build Credibility
Using your domain for your website and to personalize your email helps establish credibility and professionalism. For instance, an email address such as email@example.com is more professional than firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Protect Your Brand
Purchase the domain name that best represents your business name. Domains are valuable online real estate. Secure the right name and keep it out of the hands of your competitors.
You may also find additional attractive domains for your business. Securing more than one helps protect your brand and increase your reach. You can easily direct as many domains as you want to a single website.
4. Acquire More Traffic
Some domains already receive traffic. This traffic principally comes from direct type-in or referral traffic. Direct type-in is when an internet user types the domain directly into her browser, such as typing 'www.travel.com.' Referral traffic typically comes from links on other websites.
5. As an Investment
Similar to real estate, domain names are investments. Domain values increase daily. You yourself can make your domain name more valuable by building and marketing your website.
How can I search for the perfect Premium Domain?
Search the Name Pursuits database by keyword, subject, or by price. For instance, enter 'removal' or 'mortgage' as a keyword, and we will return available Premium Domains that match. To start a search, click on the "Find Premium Domains" tab found at the top of every page.
How much can I expect to pay for a Premium Domain?
As good domains become scarcer, both the demand and cost of Premium Domain names increase. Prices for Premium Domains vary, based on marketability, spelling, traffic, and economic trends. Highly notable domains often sell for tens of thousands of dollars. Our domain sales experts can help you find a Premium Domain in your price range, and that matches your goals for your business.
Do you offer any bulk discounts?
Yes. If you are interested in purchasing more than one Premium Domain, we often offer bulk rates. After you have submitted price quotes for all the domains that you are interested in, you may send an email to info@NamePursuit.com to request your special rate.
Are there any Premium Domains available for less than $1000?
Yes, we recommend that you use our Advanced Search to filter Premium Domains by price or review our "Bargain Domains" section. Name Pursuit Inc. has thousands of quality domains under $1000 that you can purchase immediately from our website.
Why do many domain names say "Request" instead of displaying the current price?
The domain name market evolves rapidly and Premium Domain names tend to rise in value, potentially making them attractive investment vehicles.
What are my payment options?
All Premium Domain purchases can be completed online using our secure purchase form. Name Pursuit Inc. accepts all major credit cards including, Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, and Discover. You may make a wire transfer payment if your credit card fails. And we support payment via PayPal. All payment options are secure. Credit card transactions are processed within 72 hours. Wire transfers usually require 3-4 business days after receipt of funds.
What are the terms of sale for Premium Domains?
You pay a one-time cost and the domain will be in your control as the registrant of record for as long as you choose, provided that you continue to pay a standard annual registrar fee prior to the expiration date. You can choose any registrar for your name and register in one year increments, for up to 10 years. Choosing a longer registration helps lessen the risk of losing a name due to administrative problems or nonpayment.
I just purchased a Premium Domain. Now what?
After you submitted your credit card or completed the wire transfer process, Name Pursuit Inc., verifies your payment and contact information. After your payment has been processed, we send an email titled "Important Transfer Instructions." Many Premium Domains are registered with registrars outside of NamePursuit.com. We will direct you to contact the registrar for the names you've purchased in order to maintain ownership and help you with technical support questions. Regardless of registrar, most names are transferred and in your control within 3 business days of purchase if you follow the simple procedures carefully. YOU MUST NOT FORGET TO PAY YOUR YEARLY REGISTRATION FEE TO THE REGISTRAR OR YOU COULD LOSE YOUR DOMAIN. This yearly registration fee is not a BuyDomain's policy, but an Internet-wide regulation, required of all domain owners. TopValueDomains suggests paying up front for a 10-year registration to help protect against administrative issues or nonpayment.
What are my responsibilities and costs associated with buying a Premium Domain?
You are responsible for transferring ownership of your new domain name by ensuring that your contact information is listed in the Whois database. The cost incurred upon purchasing your Premium Domain name is a one-time cost. Once you have purchased your new domain name, you are still responsible for paying the annual registration fee. For this annual registration, you must ensure that your chosen registrar is able to contact you, and that you pay the registration fee directly to them prior to expiration. Registrars are required to attempt to contact the administrative contact prior to a registration lapse, but ultimately it is your responsibility to ensure the registration is paid up.
