WHAT IS A PREMIUM DOMAIN NAME?
The potential list of meaningful domains that are available for new registration is becoming extremely limited. Domains that are already registered, “aftermarket domains”, are rare assets. Strong demand for these domains has developed and these assets continue to appreciate in value. Premium domains are memorable, marketable and often based on popular search terms, making them more appealing than domains available through domain registrars.
WHY SHOULD I BUY A PREMIUM DOMAIN NAME?
Secondary market domains are domains that have already been registered, but are available for sale from the current registrant. Although these domains are generally more expensive than unregistered (or “primary market”) domains, they tend to be much higher quality.

If there is an asking price next to the domain name, it means that this is a “BUY NOW” domain which you can either add to your cart or you can proceed to check out to buy the domain name immediately. Please note that “Buy Now” domain names cannot be negotiated. For the domain names with no asking price, you are required to negotiate through our “offer-counter offer” system. When we meet at the same price, the payment and transaction period begins for every deal.
HOW CAN I GIVE OFFER FOR A DOMAIN NAME?
Please email to email@example.com for the domain name that you would like to inquire. We will contact the domain owner regarding your offer and start the negotiation process.

For a successful and serious negotiation, we would like to advise you to start the negotiation with your best and highest offer.
HOW LONG IS MY OFFER LEGALLY BINDING?
All offers made on domains are legally binding for seven (7) days or until the other party makes a counter offer. In each counter offer, the period automatically restarts.
HOW LONG DOES THE BUYER HAVE TO MAKE PAYMENT?
We ask the buyer to remit payment within five (5) business days of an agreement and creation of the payment request, with the aim of receiving the money within ten (10) business days. The exact timeframe varies due to the time it can take for money to be sent to and from different countries.
HOW CAN I PAY FOR MY DOMAIN?
1. WIRE TRANSFER:
Buyer will be provided with the wire transfer information of NoktaDomains.com. As soon as the payment arrives, the technical transfer begins.
Escrow.com is a secure financial intermediary. So you don´t have to release your payment to us until you are sure that you have the ownership of the domain name. Please see below the steps to proceed with the transaction via Escrow.com.
You confirm an email address for you to be able to receive an email from Escrow.com. We will initiate the transaction by the email address that you provide, and inform you the recent status.
Once you have the email from Escrow.com, you'll be asked to sign into Escrow.com to review and agree to the terms. Once you have agreed to the terms, you will then be asked to make a secured online payment. Once payment is secured by Escrow.com, the transfer of the domain begins.
Note: We are listing the domain names of several marketplaces. If the domain name you select to buy belongs to another marketplace, your payment option is limited to Credit Card.
3. CREDIT CARD:
Once your payment is received through Credit Card, the transaction period starts.
With an SSL on our site, information such as social security and credit card numbers can never be intercepted by an outside party, regardless of their intentions. SSL certificates are the single-most powerful means of reassuring wary Internet shoppers. When they see the distinctive padlock icon in the lower corner of their Web browser, visitors know that information flowing both to and from your site is protected. So there's no need to worry that someone will view the private information they provide to you. It's absolutely safe.
3-D Secure adds another authentication step for online payments. NoktaDomains.com is encouraged to use 3-D Secure to achieve higher coverage against fraud losses. If your card is enrolled with 3-D Secure, during the payment flow they will be prompted by their bank to enter a password to verify that the transaction is authorised by the card owner before completion.
Please follow this link to learn more about the functions of 3-D Secure.
WHAT IS 3D ERROR?
3-D Secure is an XML-based protocol designed to be an added layer of security for online credit and debit card transactions. If your bank does not support 3D Security, therefore you are getting errors while you try to make payment via Credit Card.
We would like to inform you that we have other payment options. You can make payment via Credit Card, Escrow.com, or Wire Transfer. If you please inform us of your preferred payment option, we may immediately change it.

A transfer’s duration has many variables therefore it is impossible to confirm how long a transfer should take. These variables include:
- The responsiveness of a buyer may influence the period of a transaction.
- The responsiveness of a seller may influence the period of a transaction.
- The domain name’s registrar or registry may influence the period of a transaction. If a domain name is registered at a registrar where pushes aren’t possible the transaction will take a little longer to finalise.
- If a domain name is a ccTLD (county-code Top Level Domain), it is likely to take longer to finalise than a .com domain.
