How much should I pay if I purchase domain names on the open market?

Your Prices May Vary

If you are able to contact an individual to purchase domain names from, you can expect to pay a nominal fee (usually at least $50 for a domain). If you buy a domain name from a listing company, the premiums can be much higher…in some cases a minimum bid is 10x that amount.

*We recommend trying to contact the individual first by doing a whois domain lookup on their website.
