FAQ

  • How do I buy a domain name from brandnameideas.co.uk?
  • Once you have decided on the domain that you wish to buy, click the "Buy" button if it has a fixed Buy Now price or click the Make Offer button if it does not have a price. Then fill out the relevant details on the form.
  • Can I make an offer on a domain name that has a fixed price?
  • Yes if you like, but it is unlikely that offers below the Buy Now price will be accepted.
  • How long will it take for you to reply to an offer/query?
  • We endeavour to reply to all queries within 48 hours.
  • What happens if you don't accept my offer?
  • We are not obliged to accept any offer and if we do not want to accept your offer we will notify you of this. You are able to make another offer and can continue to make as many offers as you want on a domain name. Where possible we will tell you if your offer is substantially below our expectations to avoid time being wasted on both parts.
  • Do you have to sell a domain that has a Buy Now price when the Buy Now form has been submitted?
  • No - Although we are unlikely not to complete the sale of any domain that has a Buy Now price, However we reserve the right not to sell any of the domains published on this site for whatever reason we choose and we are only obliged to sell once full payment has been made and / or you have signed an agreement.
  • How long will it take until I have control over the domain name I have purchased?
  • This will partly depend on you and how quickly you take the necessary steps to enable the transfer of the domain name. It can be as quick as 12 hours but may take longer
  • How much does it cost to transfer a domain name?
  • A charge 10+ VAT, is applicable - this is not a charge set by ourselves but by Nominet who are the governing body for UK domain names .Please click here for further details.
  • Do I pay the money first or do you transfer the domain first?
  • We ask that you make payment first. Once cleared funds for a price that has been agreed have been received then the transfer process will immediately be instigated. This site is run by people that have been working in the digital industry for many years and who are well respected within the field and hence you should feel confident in the knowledge that everything will be dealt with in the most professional manner. However if you want further security we can arrange to undertake the transfer via an Escrow service but this will incur a fee of circa 3% which the buyer will have to pay.
  • Is my offer legally binding?
  • There is no legal requirement for you to honour your offer amount, but we encourage professionalism and request that people do not waste our time. We will hold the domain as Under Offer for 72 hours following an offer price being agreed and during this time we will not sell the domain to anyone else. If at the end of this time period we have not received payment and/ or a signed agreement from you then we may sell the domain to another purchaser.
  • Is there a cooling off period when purchasing a domain from brandnameideas.co.uk?
  • You have 72 hours after you have made an offer that has been accepted to pay funds and /or sign an agreement to secure the name. After you have paid funds and /or signed an agreement then there is no turning back.
  • Will I own the domain name for life once I have purchased it?
  • No - but please note that this is the same for any domain name, no matter where it is purchased. UK domain names can be registered for various periods from one to ten years. You will essentially be the owner of the domain for however long you register the name for and during this time you can use it, lease it or sell it. However if you do not renew your domain at the end of the period you could lose your rights to ownership and if it drops then it could be registered by someone else and would be likely to be difficult to get back.
  • Can I make an offer on a selection of names - i.e. a portfolio offer?
  • Yes - we are looking to sell all of the names listed so if we receive good offers on a selection of names we will consider selling names in bulk. We will also be likely to offer discounts against our anticipated sales prices for individual names if people buy in bulk.
  • Why Don't You Publish Many Buy Now Prices?
  • Domain pricing is an incredibly difficult field as whilst there are certain core things that add to the value of a name - buying a good domain name is very similar to the purchase of a piece of fine art. A domain is ultimately worth what a buyer is willing to pay regardless of whether that buyer is purchasing for collector value or purchasing to put on display and attract attention. Whilst art is often sold at auction and the auctioneers have a good idea of ballpark opening prices due to core components of the piece of art in question - the actual sales value is rarely known until potential buyers have bid and often a piece can end up being sold for a lot more than the opening price. We do not wish to limit opportunity and hence we ask people to make offers.
