The different options for buying domains

There are many ways to get the domain you want.

Buy Now

This is the quickest way to buy and use a domain: The seller specifies a binding Buy Now price. You then pay the exact price displayed on the domain offer page.

Make Offer

The seller has opted to negotiate about the price on an offer/counter offer basis. When you place a bid, the seller decides if they would like to negotiate with you. Sedo will complete the sale if you can both agree on a price.


Some domains are offered as part of a temporary auction where the highest bid wins. You can see the bids made by others on the domain page, and how much time is remaining to place a bid.

Domain Brokers

As a buyer, you can also use our Brokerage Service. Our experienced domain experts will help you with price negotiations and purchasing, even for domains which are currently not in our inventory.

Why it pays to buy a domain

Domains are a central component of successful online communication.

However, most of the best internet addresses are already owned by others. Buying one of these domains is thus frequently the best path to success.

For whom it pays to buy a domain and why:

  • Online shops & startups
  • Campaigns and product development
  • Expanding and protecting a brand
  • Investors and domain traders
  • Online Shops & Startups

    Brent Oxley, Entrepreneur is the ultimate name for a charity, and had we not acted fast on the advice of our Sedo broker, we could have missed out on this effective branding for our cause. The domain projects exactly what we intend to do which is to positively impact more lives than all other charities combined, and I can’t imagine this being possible without a name as powerful and universal as

    We simply cannot afford to sound like an inexperienced startup and with the name, we won’t.


  • Campaigns and product development

    Dharmesh Shah, CTO, Hubspot

    “HubSpot’s blog is a well-trafficked resource because we put a lot of thought into posting valuable content for our customers, partners and even employees or future employees, so was a natural place to unveil our culture code. However, we also wanted the ability to easily share the code, and giving someone a lengthy URL or asking them to do a search on our site isn’t very convenient.  On the other hand, a custom domain is much easier to remember.” 

  • Expanding and protecting the brand

    Franz Trescher, Managing director of puzzle & play GmbH

    "We were convinced from the very beginning of our idea to convert customer photographs into genuine puzzles. In order to make the most of this potential, it was very important to us that we find the perfect domain for our innovative product. Since the service was extremely well received, we prepared very intensively for our expansion to other EU countries. We have thus not only secured the top level domains which are important to us in each country, but also the domain title in the correct language.


  • Investment and domain trade

    Tobias Flaitz, CEO Sedo GmbH

    "High-grade web addresses make excellent investments; a fact which we can confirm by our more than 15 years of sustainable market experience. The uniqueness of domains means a natural shortage of them and thus provides the potential for value growth; regardless of whether the web address is used for an online business or as a pure investment. This makes them attractive investment options and a serious alternative to shares."
