Search from our available list of domain names via the search box at the top of any page and/or using the 'Domain Names' menu option.
On finding a suitable domain name which you wish to purchase for your website, just click 'Buy Now' or 'Make Offer', submit your details, and we will shortly be in contact.
If the offer is acceptable to the seller, then subsequent to the receipt of your payment, we will arrange transfer of the domain into your chosen registrar as soon as possible with you registered as the legal owner and official registrant.
(For this last step, we commonly need you to be able to login into to your existing registrar in order to help complete the proccess. Do not worry if you do not have a current registrar as we will advise in such circumstance.)
Please note that as the buyer of the domain name that you only ever pay the agreed price corresponding to any final agreed price and that with SelectDomain.com there are no additional fees applied by us. (There can also never be any stipulation that the price needs to include registration fees that might restrict you taking your domain wherever you like.)
General tips on choosing a domain name
It is obviously completely your choice as you which domain name you select for your website, and whether it be sourced from our site or from elsewhere. The best choice to an extent is subjective and the opinion offered here is either to be taken note of, or just ignored. We pre-filter the domains which we offer on our site because we do not wish to even offer any domain that we feel is inferior to any customer.
However, even though there are no hard-and-fast rules, there are common consensuses of opinion that certain elements and traits of a domain name may well make them more suitable as the most appropriate home for a website:
Names that are shorter, more concise, and easier and quicker to pronounce and type tend to have an advantage. i.e. one or two-word names are better. But a three-word .com could be good too.
Names that have word(s) that are closely related to your website information, product or service are more likely to be more successfully associated with your site offering. However, the more-brandable domains can sometimes have an advantage over the more generic-termed domains.
Numbers and hyphens within a website domain name can be problematic and lead to confusion. (E.g when a customer types the domain name, do they or don't they type the number as a digit, or as a word? and is the hyphen between words actually a space or a hyphen, or even just left out completely? And if you do it one way, then what is to stop someone else adopting the other variation?)
The idea is to be succinct, memorable and meaningful and create a clear association between the domain name and your website, but whilst taking any trademark implications into account.
Consider the domain name extension very carefully. Dot-coms may well be advantageous because they are much easler to remember, and also in terms of credibility they do convey an impression of higher-quality and seriousness. Quite simply and very often, the most commonly used and familiar top-level domain extension is preferable. Dot-coms are the most recognised and 'original choice' and the most-established businesses commonly trust the dot-com extension to represent their online presence.
