How Do I Purchase A Parked Domain Name by usbcable(m): 11:51am On Sep 04, 2013
sometime recently I engaged a friend to help build a website for me.
Sadly by the time of completion the intended domain name had been parked just before we could register it.

I really like the name and would not mind buying it from the person that parked the name.
Problem is I dont know how to contact the person that parked it so as to negotiate the price with him/her.

I checked up the domain name on whois.com and saw some details about the domain.

Does anyone have an idea on how i can contact the domain name owner so that we can negotiate.

Any info in this regards will be really really really appreciated.

BTW,

any info on how to rate the approximate value of the domain name will be appreciated as well.

Many thanks.

Why dont you meanwhile get an alternate one like .net or .org?
and when the "original" one becomes available you may be notified say by GoDaddy (assuming that's your host/registrar)

You can also use brokers, agents etc but of course they will charge you for that.

The whois should reveal a contact detail. either that of the host/registrar or the owner.

Since it was parked, check with the registrar he parked it with.

Simple, you have to buy it from them if they were the ones that parked it. If it was a third party that purchased it then you'll have to buy it from them. You'll have to do both at a higher cost. It's actually a line of internet business known as domain parking. I know a lot of you don't know about it.

All you need do is to buy a lot of domains and "park" them 'cos you are not making use of them. Then they will now sell it for profit to people who actually need them.

For example you can park or naira.ng and who knows, Seun might be in need of them sometime in the future.

Strange that the contact seems to be incorrect or it could be that the owner is using their Domain Privacy tool.
But anyways, they have a domain buy service.
- open godaddy.com and search for the domain name you are after. You will like get a similar message as below
Sorry, DOMAINBUYSERVICE.COM is already taken. Really want it? Try our Domain Buy Service.
- Click that link (Try our Domain Buy Service) and you will be presented with two options from which you can choose. See, I've attached a screenshot for you.

Or alternatively, get on their Forum and submit a ticket there.
