Domain Buy Acquisition Service
Your desired domain name already being registered doesn't always mean it is off the table forever. The first step is identifying the right person to talk to (the decision maker) and getting them to respond. From there, the goal is getting the best possible purchase price for the domain.
Your domain acquisition broker also ensures a private, seamless transaction, transferring the domain name with Whois privacy service enabled to your domain registration company account. This continues the protection of your identity as the buyer after domain name purchase and transfer.
The MediaOptions Domain Acquisition Process
Access: We maintain the most comprehensive domain ownership and domain information database in the world, continuously tracking down and eliciting responses from domain name owners whom others cannot find or contact. With our tremendous relationships, knowledge, and global reputation, we often present our clients with higher quality names that may not be publicly available, often for the original acquisition budget. There’s no MLS for domains, but we know or will get to know virtually every piece of real estate, buyer and seller.
Confidentiality: Our stealth acquisitions allow you to stay anonymous while we use our domains and networks to get you the perfect domain of your choice. Throughout the negotiation process and over the course of the closing of the transaction, your identity will remain completely anonymous and private.
Co-Brokerage: Our expansive network includes co-brokerage agreements with all domain marketplaces and domain brokers that we deem professional; that way you never pay a commission twice, and we can get you access to almost any domain on the planet.
Expertise: We have extensive experience purchasing domain names from individuals as well as large organizations and corporations. We also know how to turn domain owners into domain sellers. Domain name negotiations, and ultimately the transaction and transfer process, can be a highly complicated and delicate process. Many transactions fall apart at the finish line due to slow transaction processing or negligence in the due diligence process. Our experience and tried-and-true contracts ensure that your transaction closes successfully, with all parties walking away with a positive experience.
Domain Name Valuation and Guidance
A classically successful acquisition begins with the identification of a premium domain name's registered owner. A skilled negotiator, such as those on our team, can open a communication channel, start the discussion, highlight both value and detriments for all parties, and find an agreeable price. Ultimately this process culminates in the sale and transfer of the domain, and completes via escrow service.
Domain Name Investigation and Valuation
In this step, we use our experience, contacts, industry insights, and research to value and appraise the domain name. This sets realistic client expectations and provides a starting point for negotiations, including an opening offer. In this step we also identify and locate the domain owner to better assess the worth of the domain, including budget setting, market potential, and usability in context.
Domain Name Negotiation and Acquisition
At this stage, we establish a line of communication with the domain owner and request their participation while maintaining client anonymity. To maintain client anonymity, a third party escrow account manages the transfer process.
Domain Name Transfer and Deal Closure
Once escrow is completed, our team obtains actual control of the domain name. At this point, we set up the DNS service based on client requirements and safely transfer the domain with any registrar in accordance with ICANN rules.
MediaOptions and its CEO, Andrew Rosener, are globally regarded as the #1 expert in the domain name industry when it comes to domain name valuation, domain name management, and domain appraisals. A simple search on the web and you will find extensive interviews, public appearances, keynotes, and other evidence of our expertise in the field of domain name value.
Not only can we assist you in the acquisition of your domain name but we can provide guidance and set expectations regarding valuation and ultimately the price you will or should pay for the domain name you wish to acquire. Without such expertise, individuals and companies often pay far more than they should.
Let MediaOptions leverage its trusted reputation and extensive relationship network to help you acquire your domain name at the best possible price!

Our Domain Name Acquisition Service is absolutely risk free. We only get paid when successful. Every acquisition is unique; while fees may vary, we always put forth 110% effort. Our fee is typically 10% of the final acquisition price with a minimum of $1,500. Oftentimes clients request a more incentivized approach and we have several options available for this type of service as well. Every client and every domain has a different set of needs; we will custom tailor our service and commission structure to fit your needs; but no matter what, there are no upfront fees. Our goal is to best serve our clients by delivering the perfect domain name they want at the absolute best possible price.
Domain Name Transfer and Transaction Process
Once we have reached an agreement for the purchase of your domain name we will expediently begin the transfer transaction process. In most cases we will use our standard domain name purchase and sales contract to ensure that you acquire all right, title & interest in the domain name and any other associated intellectual property. Once both parties have signed the agreement we will initiate an Escrow transaction using a trusted partner, such as Escrow.com, as escrow agent. We have concluded 100's of millions of dollars in transactions with Escrow.com and they are among the most trusted and reliable escrow agents in the world. Upon review and acceptance of the terms at Escrow.com by both parties, we will submit payment directly to the escrow agent. Once payment is received and approved, the seller will be notified to transfer the domain name and any other deliverables (website files, trademark forms, etc… if applicable). Money will not be released to the seller until you or you are in full control of the domain name.
All information and details of the purchase and transaction will be kept strictly confidential and the sale will NOT be published anywhere of public record.
Any and all information you provide to any employee of MediaOptions is treated as strictly confidential and will not be used or shared with any other party without express written consent from you, our client. We like to think of ourselves as your domain council or advisor and we have a “broker-client privilege” for any information you provide us.
