Facts worth knowing about the company and the domain purchase

Who is the DomainProfi GmbH?

In 2008, we specialized in trading and registering domain names. Mainly we distribute descriptive, german domainnames. Our portfolio of over 200,000 domains offers a wide selection. Feel free to look through our search for interesting domains.

Do you also sell domains on behalf of customers?

No, we only market our own domains. If you would like to sell domains to us, please send a list of your asking prices to info@domainprofi.com.

Why should I buy a domain from you?

Of course, despite the hundreds of millions of domains that exist worldwide, there are still free domains. But the internet with its domains has been around for about 30 years. Ask yourself if the domain which is still free, really is such a good domain if it has not been registered by anyone for so long.

A domain as a marketing tool is significantly cheaper than print or television advertising. In addition, you can use the domain permanently and gain new customers through a meaningful domain name. In the long run, your domain will pay for itself.

Which factors determine the value of a domain?

Crucial for the price determination with us are among other things the following points: Commercial usability, length and the search engine characteristics of a domain. In addition, we consider real selling prices as a reference for the market value of the domain.

Are you providing statistics about a domain?

No, we do not give statistic values to domains. You only buy the URL, no values. The term should be decisive for your purchase decision. Statistical values may not always be reliable and may vary depending on the source. Therefore, we do not want to make statistical values part of a domain sale.

What are the costs for me?

For the purchase of the domain you pay the agreed purchase price one-time to us. Afterwards we will not charge you any further costs. Please keep in mind, however, that this is independent of your provider's hosting and maintenance costs.

What payment options are there?

As a rule, you pay in advance within 14 days of invoicing. In addition to the classic wire transfer there is also the possibility of payment via PayPal or via a trustee service (eg Sedo or Escrow). Alternatively, individual regulations can be arranged in a domain purchase agreement.

What happens after the sale? How does the transfer work?

After successful sale to you, you will receive an order confirmation and the corresponding invoice by e-mail. As a rule, the term of payment is 14 days. After receipt of payment we will send you an authcode for the domain transfer. With this code you can transfer the domain to a provider of your choice.

In rare cases an additional form is required, but this depends on your hosting provider. If your provider requires such a form, please send it pre-filled by e-mail to us. We will return it to you signed.

What is an authcode?

An Authcode (also called Authinfo) is a kind of password for the domain transfer. This is needed for almost all the different TLDs for the transfer. In most cases the authcode is valid for 30 days. Please transfer the domain within this period.

What is a Provider/Registrar?

A provider is a member of the respective registry (for example, DENIC for .de). A provider allows you to manage your purchased domain. Well-known providers are for example 1&1, Strato, InternetX and united-domains. You are not resctricted to use any of the mentioned provider and can choose freely.
