What do I get when I purchase a name?
When buying a business name from Amazing Domains you will become the new owner of the domain name, and it will remain yours as long as you renew your yearly registration with your domain name registrar. There are no recurring costs from Amazing Domains. We also do not lease domains.
You will also receive the example logo that is shown along side the domain name. We can send you the original graphics file, usually in Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop format, so that you can modify, edit and resize it if needed.
How does it work?
Amazing Domains is a marketplace of domain names that are owned by several different people. To facilitate the transfer of domain ownership, we provide an escrow service between the domain owner (the seller) and you, the buyer. We hold your payment as a third party, and guarantee the transfer of the domain into your account at the registrar of your choice before we release the payment to the seller.
We take care of the whole process and hand hold you through it. We also guarantee the transfer of the domain to you, or your money back.
What payment options do you accept?
Our secure online checkout accepts all major credit cards including Visa, MasterCard and American Express. We also accept a bank wire transfer.
How long does the domain transfer take?
Once payment has been received and cleared (immediately for credit card, longer for wire transfers and eCheck), we start the domain transfer process. The transfer can take anywhere between 1-8 business days, depending on the registrar where the domain is currently registered, and the registrar that you prefer to use. Typically if you choose to use the same registrar where the domain currently resides, the transfer is the quickest since the domain only changes accounts. If you choose a different registrar, there is an ICANN-mandated waiting period of 5 days that starts after the current owner has approved the transfer.
Since Amazing Domains is an open marketplace and the domains are owned by several different people, the transfer time can be affected depending on the response time of the seller. We do our best to speed the transfer process by training our escrow team to facilitate communication between you and the seller and to eliminate common roadblocks.
Is the logo included with my purchase?
Yes. The logo designs featured with our domain names are designed to help you visualize what the brand could look like. If you would like to have and use the sample logo, its yours to use. We can send you the original graphics file, usually in Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop format, so that you can modify and resize it if needed. If you choose to not use the sample logo, there is no reduction in the total price of the domain.
Can I make an offer?
We believe in reducing hassle through upfront pricing. Unlike other domain marketplaces that rarely show a listing price, which requires you to start a lengthy negotiation process with the seller, Amazing Domains requires each and every name to have a set price. A suitable price range is recommended by our staff based on the name’s quality and our years of experience selling brandable domain names.
However, every few months we do re-evaluate the pricing of our older domains. Please be sure to check back regularly for any updates. If you would like some help finding a name within a particular budget, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team for assistance at info [at] AmazingDomains.com.

What is a domain registrar?
A domain name registrar is an organization or company that is accredited by ICANN to sell and register domain names.They store the domain owner’s contact information, which can be seen by doing a WHOIS search. All domain names for sale on Amazing Domains are already registered at one of several registrars. When you purchase a domain at Amazing Domains, you must already have an account at a registrar, or create one before we can transfer the domain to you.
A short list of registrars that we can recommend are:
Can I trade you a domain I own for one on your website?
Though we appreciate your interest, we do not accept barter deals or trade offers. Amazing Domains is an open marketplace, so the domains listed are not all necessarily owned by us. However, if you own a domain that you feel might be a good fit for our market, you are always welcome to submit it to our team for review. To start the process, simply sign up for a domain owner account.
Do your domains come with existing trademarks or international registration?
No. In order to apply for a trademark or registration, we would need to know specifics about the business like: location, type/industry, and what services the company/product will provide. Since our versatile domains can be purchased by anyone for any use, it would not be possible for us to file a trademark in advance.
We recommend that you do some research and/or seek legal advice to ensure that the name you are interested in does not have an existing trademark by a competitor in your industry and within your region. If the name is not trademarked, or has a trademark unrelated to how you plan to use it, then you have a good chance of being able to trademark the name yourself. If there is an existing trademark, keep in mind that, as long as your business is in a different industry, you may still be able to file a trademark for the name.
How often are new domain names added?
We add new names to our portfolio frequently.
