Different options for buying domains

There are many ways to get the domain you want.

Buy Now

This is the fastest of our purchase methods. First, the seller specifies a binding Buy Now price and then the buyer pays the price displayed on the domain offer page. After the transfer process completes, you’re free to start using your domain.

Make Offer

There is no fixed price listed but offers are welcomed. When you place a bid, the seller decides if they would like to negotiate with you. If both parties can agree on a price, Sedo will complete the sale.


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

Domain Brokers

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

Why it pays to buy a domain


Domains are a central component of successful online communication. However, the majority of the best internet addresses are already owned. Therefore buying one of these domains is the best path to success.

Who best benefits from purchasing a domain:

  • Online shops & startups
  • New campaigns and product development
  • Expansion and protection of a brand
  • Investors and domain traders


  • Online-Shops & Start-Ups

    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 explore this potential platform, it was very important to us that we find the perfect domain for our innovative offering. Since the service was extremely well received, we prepared very intensively for our expansion to other EU countries.

    We have not only secured the top level domains which are important to us in each country, but also the domain title in the correct language."
