Lately I’ve been hearing a lot of people asking about the best service to use for buying expired domain names. The top services are NameJet.com, TDName.com (Domain Name Aftermarket run by GoDaddy), Pool.com, and Snapnames.com. I’d be interested to hear what people think is the best service for buying expired domains.
It seems that most people favor NameJet for getting the best premium names. The main downside to NameJet is that anyone can see your backorder so it’s a lot more likely you’ll have to fight for the name you want. Snapnames offers anonymous Backordering which gives it a bit of an edge here, but at the end of the day it’s about getting the best domain.
I’ve used Pool.com only recently and haven’t had much luck. I’ve found tons of names on Pool.com but those that look like they have any potential at all you usually have to fight to get.
TDName is nice as it’s integrated into GoDaddy. I use both GoDaddy and 1&1 and like this service offering from GoDaddy. I still think that NameJet is the best place to buy *premium* expired names.
I’d be interested to hear some of your experiences? Hopefully this can help those new to domaining start-off with the best service from the beginning.
I hope that all of my readers have a safe and happy New Years!
