Have you thought about what the previous owner was doing with the domain you’re interested in? Were they really selling the types of products and services you imagined? What about copyright and commercial law considerations?

Domain Names

Domain names that are wanted are already owned, so it’s important to get in touch with us early on and get an idea of what level of investment you’ll need to successfully acquire the domain you need.

Helping broker a deal for an owned, premium domain is exactly what dtrade is here to do, and we’ve got an interest in keeping the buyer and seller both happy, so we won’t rest until we do. With an experienced team covering all the areas of expertise you need – technical, legal and business development we won’t let you down.

Whether you know exactly what name you need to own, when you need it by and what price you are willing to pay, or you’ve just started a different type of business  we at dtrade will be able to assist you. We’ve dealt with simple and complex matters and understand how the process works, that’s how we can offer better results than an individual approach or basic self-motivated research into a domain name. The issues may seem simple, but often aren’t. That’s why it’s worth using a professional consultant who deals with domain names every single day as part of their working life.


Acquiring a new domain is exciting. It can be the first step to a new business venture and a new life for many people. The domain name market has exceeded $500m just in Australia , with more than 60,000 new domain names being registered each month. This is an active, dynamic market space and one that has huge room for growth and potential.

Adding a domain to your portfolio

A premium domain name makes a valuable and worthwhile addition to any balanced investment portfolio. At dtrade we are experiencing growing demand for our export services, as the overseas markets start to move. Talk to us about local and international opportunities and how to diversify your existing investments into this exciting sector.


The dtrade team has a mindset for sales. All team members have been active in the industry for a number of years and know what it takes to get a deal done. We also understand that it doesn’t always stop when the transaction is completed though, and we’ve witnessed enough domain sales gone bad through our combined background experience to understand how important it is to do the deal right the first time, while still making sure it gets done.

We’ve dealt with a range of issues that can come up during a domain name sale, so we know what to look out for, what to warn potential buyers and sellers about and how to overcome different obstacles that can pop up along the way.

More than just ‘getting a deal done’, we take a long term view and understand that if you aren’t happy with our service in any way, you won’t use us again and won’t recommend us to others.

That’s why we’re 100% committed to doing deals that leave both parties satisfied, because ultimately that’s how we succeed, by making sure you do.


dtrade offers a thorough and comprehensive appraisal of a potential domain. This includes price guidance, market activity, how similar domains have performed and future performance indicators.

We will give you a thorough and honest assessment of the market and the potential for any domain, as well as any potential challenges, obstacles or issues we believe could have an impact on the sale.

This means you can make a truly informed decision and you won’t be acting on misinformation, a wrong impression or bad advice.

Contact us today for an appraisal, and to ask any questions you might have about the process. Our qualified team is on hand to assist you in your business, and we’ve been there and done it all before.


It doesn’t matter whether you’re buying or selling a domain, you need to be protected against fraud, theft or deception – general misconduct by either party. The way to do that is using an Escrow account service. There are a lot of benefits to be gained from Escrow, including:

  • Assurance for both parties that assets and funds are handled by an unassociated third party
  • Peace of mind that funds will be transferred according to the agreed terms and on time

For the buyer:

  • Security knowing that the domain name has been transferred prior to purchase
  • Confirmation of ownership directly with the registrar before payment leaves
  • Multiple payment options, including PayPal, credit cards and bank transfer

For the seller:

  • Security and convenience
  • Payment verification prior to the final transfer
  • Protection against fraud, insufficient funds or chargebacks
