How to Acquire one of Our Brandable Names Via Go Daddy

If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.
--Jim Rohn

So now you're ready to acquire one of our brandable domains, and this article will tell you how to buy your selected name from us.

We have placed most of our domains on the Go Daddy auction site. In this context, "auction" is a bit of a misnomer because we are not "auctioning" our names in the sense that it will go up for bid, but we have selected to use the offer/counteroffer feature. For reasons having to do with Go Daddy's partnership with another sales venue, we have decided not to use the "Buy It Now" option because (for financial reasons) we want to sell exclusively through Go Daddy, the world's largest domain registrar.

But if you make an offer for our asking price on a domain that we are selling outright, we will accept your offer. We do have a few names in reserve that we would like to hold for higher offers, but these listings are clearly identified on this website.

We like Go Daddy because it's a trustworthy venue, dedicated to making the transfer of domains safe, easy, fluid, and fast. The auction staff works diligently at protecting both seller and buyer from fraud, which, unfortunately, is a part of the domain sales business.

Your financial details will be safe with Go Daddy -- check it out yourself, if you are not sure. Since 2007, when we first signed up with Go Daddy, we have not had a problem with security regarding our financial information.

All our domains on the Go Daddy sales site are registered at Go Daddy, so verification of ownership can be easily established.

Our contact info listed on this site is the same information listed on Go Daddy's Whois for our domains.

For buyers, the best news: the seller (us!) assumes all commission fees. The only fee the buyer pays is $4.95 for a Go Daddy auction membership, good for one year.

Basic steps for purchasing one of our domains (via Go Daddy):  
-- Sign up for a Go Daddy Auction Membership. (If you are already a member, you can skip this step.)
-- On the sale posting, each domain offered for sale offers its own dedicated listing link. Click on this link, and you will go directly to the listing. 
-- If the link doesn't work, go to the Go Daddy auction site, and, in the search box, type in the domain you wish to purchase, for example, Zequin.com. If you get an error message that says "No keyword provided," simply re-enter the name. The exact-match listing will be highlighted by a yellow strip.
-- Place your offer!
-- If you are not logged on, you will be prompted to do so.
-- Once you place your offer, we will be emailed, letting us know that an offer has been made.
-- If we have offered this as an outright sale, we will accept your offer, as long as it's our asking price.
-- Once we accept, Go Daddy will email you with payment details and instructions.
-- Follow Go Daddy's instructions for submitting payment.
-- Once payment has cleared, Go Daddy will let us know when to commence transfer to you. We will NOT receive payment until Go Daddy verifies completed transfer. 
-- If this sale is for two domains, we will transfer the second domain to you once the first transfer has completed.
