Registry premium domain names are previously unregistered domain names available for purchase directly from the registry, at a non-standard price. Registry premium domains may have a premium transfer or renewal price, in addition to a premium purchase price and some have prices just slightly higher than the standard version of the TLD; some cost significantly more.
All Registry Premium domain names listed on our site are sold through negotiation, directly with the registry. After submitting your offer for the domain name, a contact from the registry will be in touch. After a deal is negotiated, you'll be able to manage the domain from your names+ account.
Domain names are not much dissimilar than real estate. In fact, domains can be thought of as virtual real estate. They appreciate in value and, like house hunters, many domain investors look for undervalued or undeveloped domains which they feel can have a potential to rise in value in the future.
You may also want to know why a domain with no website or business is worth anything. Think, once again, in terms of real estate. 50 years ago, people may not have thought a piece of land in the middle of the Nevada desert would ever be worth anything. However, today, Las Vegas is one of the biggest real estate markets in the US. A domain name is just like a piece of land, while a website or business is like a hotel on that land.
