The idea of being able to buy domain names for yourself or for your business is not technically true – no one can legally buy a domain (also known as web site) or purchase a “buy it now” offer on a domain name that will last forever or even buy a.com (or some other popular domain extension). What’s true is that there are a number of ways to get yourself or your company a domain name. One of the most popular ways is to find a “buy it now” sale or promotion on a website that offers domains. This is one of the easiest ways to get a domain name but it’s also the one that have the highest percentage of fraudulent sales. This is because when a site offers a free domain for a limited period of time it will usually have the domain name on sale for some price,such as a cent or two.
If this is your goal and if you’re just looking for a name for your website you should not be concerned about purchasing the domain at the “buy it now” promotion. There’s one problem with buying a domain from a “buy it now” site. The reason is that you’ll end up paying for the domain name that is owned by the site owner after you’ve been paid. You’ll also be paying the site owner money so there is no way to recoup that money in a “buy it now” sale. It would be better to go with another option such as using a domain name reseller.
Resellers provide their clients with domain names that are already registered to their company. They will then buy domains from the owner at wholesale prices and then resell them to their clients. The benefit to a reseller is that they don’t have to pay the web host and are not responsible for maintaining the server. They charge a fee for the domain registration fees plus a commission on each name that is sold.
