Premium Domains

The lowdown on premium domains


image

When you search for domains at name.com, you might wonder why domain names with the same extension can have different prices. For instance, our price for a .COM domain name is $10.99, but there are premium .COM domains that start at $19.99 and can even cost thousands.

The difference in prices can be a little confusing, so I’m going to try to clear things up a bit.

What makes a domain premium?

A premium domain will typically be very short, simple, and/or keyword rich. Basically, premium domains are more valuable, and that’s reflected in the price.

Unlike typical domains, premium domains have already been registered, so they’re actually being re-sold. Some are owned by registrars themselves, while others are owned by domainers and business-savvy people who list them at domain marketplaces such as SedoMLS or Afternic. You’re actually paying to have the domain transferred to you, but the process is just like registering a non-premium.
