What can I do if the domain I want is already taken?

If the domain you want has already been registered by someone else, you may still have an opportunity to get this domain through the secondary market for “used” domain names. You have a few options:

  1. Find out if the domain is for sale At domain name marketplaces such as sedo.us, you can search through over a million domain names listed for sale by their owners to find out if the one you’re looking for might be available. You might also try typing in the domain name itself to see if it resolves to a “for sale” page.
  2. Use a domain broker to acquire the domain name Best brokers can assist you with the entire process, from tracking down the domain’s owner to securely transferring the domain once the sale has been completed. One such broker service is provided at sedo.us.
  3. Contact the owner directly If you are experienced in negotiating the acquisition of domain names, you can always contact the owner of the domain name directly. The owner’s contact information can usually be found by doing a search through a WHOIS database.
