How to Buy a Domain Name From Somebody: Getting the Help You Need


Buying a domain name that is already owned by somebody is often a very challenging situation. If this isn’t something you do every day, you very likely need help. If you’re not a lawyer, would you go into a legal battle by yourself? No, you wouldn’t!

Uni's Domain Buy Service is simply a smart business choice. A dedicated team of over 40+ multilingual domain professionals are at your service with the technology, resources, experience, and drive to serve you.

For just $59 you get all that? Seems pretty crazy, but yes!

Why Uni? End-to-end service. Uni will dedicate a domain name professional to you, understand your needs, time, and budget to acquire your target domain name. Since Uni is a full-service domain name registrar, registry, and brokerage service, domain names are what we do.

We understand how to get in contact with a domain name owner, domain name values, and the process of safely securing the domain name into your account. All of this is done directly at Uni, by us, for you.

We understand there are other domain name buy services offered, but choosing the one that will help you the best is why Uni is your best choice. We are not a one- or two-person operation like the majority of other domain buy services. We are not “account reps” with the added task of helping people buy domains. We are experienced and dedicated professionals here to serve you.

How does it work?

For the minimal fee of only $59, you are hiring a domain professional to work on your behalf to purchase your target domain name. You will communicate directly with your assigned broker about your target domain name, timing, expected budget, and any questions you may have. Then you just sit back and let the pros go to work.

Automated vs. Person? Most of the known domain name buying services use automated processes to establish contact with the domain name owner. This is a critical step in the purchase process and one that Uni does manually.

Uni has built business relationships with thousands of corporations, small businesses, and professionals over many years. We are very proud and honored to have these working relationships that serve thousands of our customers and the many business needs they have. We utilize our brand reputation, experience, and knowledge of domain names to establish contact with the domain owner on your behalf while staying in constant communication with you during this important process.

Upon a successful acquisition, a success fee of 15% of the purchase price is required for our successful services. If we are not successful in acquiring your domain name, the $59 is the only fee paid for the services.

Uni handles millions of dollars of domain name sales monthly, with over $50 million in aftermarket domain name sales in 2018 alone. We look forward to using our experience to help you acquire your next domain name with the Uni Domain Buy Service.
