Information

Conetix does NOT offer domain negotiation or purchasing from reseller services. Should you wish to purchase a domain from an external reseller/website this must be done at your own discretion.

Overview

When a company or registrant goes out of business they will often put their domains up for sale or auction them off on websites like GoDaddy or HugeDomains. Depending on how memorable it is or how well it ranks on Google, a domain can be worth a lot of money to the right buyer.

Domain auctions exist to give domain owners an opportunity to sell their domain for a profit and give buyers a chance to get a name that can take their website to the next level.

Domain not for sale?

If you still wanted to get your hands on the taken domain you would need to do so through a private sale. To check if the domain you are looking to purchase is available you can follow the below links

You will then be able to enter in the domain you want to search which will provide some information associated with that domain. If the domain has ID protection turned on, you can see if they have contact information listed on their website. Please keep in mind that it’s unlikely that the owner will want to sell unless they have listed the domain for sale, or they may demand a steep price.

Finding alternatives

If the exact domain you’re after is taken there are over 1,500 domain extensions you can choose from. If your ideal was a .com.au try the .com, or .net or any other potential combination, if checking our domain search here it will show you available variants when you type in a domain name.
