When you buy a name on OneClickName, you become the new owner of the domain name. You will have no other fixed or recurring cost to pay to OneClickName. You will simply have to pay the annual fee to your registrar (around 10-12$/year for most registrars) as for any domain name.

OneClickName is a market place of domain names which allows domain buyers and domain sellers to meet together.

We will be the third party company which guarantees that the transfer process of the domain names to you is done properly. You proceed to the payment to OneClickName, and once the transfer of the domain is done, we proceed to the payment of the domain seller.

If the transfer process is not done by the seller, we proceed to the refund of the amount you paid.

The transfer process starts right after we receive your payment confirmation. The transfer duration is typically 1 to 8 business days, depending on the registrars of the buyer (you) and seller. If the registrars are the same ones, the transfer can be done in few hours in most cases.

In almost all cases, you can use the registrar you prefer. In order to benefit of the fastest transfer, the best is nevertheless to open a free account at the same registrar as the seller.

In some rare cases, it can happen that there is a registrar lock which avoids a transfer of the domain name to another registrar. In this case, you need to open a free account at this registrar to make the transfer immediately possible. If for some technical reasons, you absolutely need to transfer the domain to another registrar, 60 days are required to remove the registrar lock.

  1. click on the 'Buy' button! You are redirected to Paypal to proceed to a secure payment (no Paypal account required)
  2. on the Paypal payment page, enter you credit card details or choose to pay with your Paypal account (in this last case, enter your Paypal login and password)
  3. once the Paypal payment done, you will receive an email from Paypal confirming that the payment is done.
  4. Within 24 hours, you will receive an email from OneClickName explaining how to proceed for the transfer. If you have no registrar, we will ask you to create a free account to the same registrar as the seller allowing the transfer process to be faster (possibly finished in few minutes). You will probably have to pay your registrar for registering the domain, about 10-12$ per year in most cases. If you want to proceed to a transfer to your specific registrar different from the one of the seller, the transfer process should be longer (up to 8 days). Whatever your registrar is, you will just have to tell us to which account you want to transfer the domain.
  5. Once the transfer is initiated, you will receive an email from your registrar explaining how to confirm the transfer.
All these steps are very smooth and simple. Just relax!

Yes. Simply click on the button '10 days option' on the description page of the domain, or send an email to us. The option price is 10% of the total price for 10 days of reservation. During the reservation period, the domain is removed from our website and cannot be bought by somebody else. If you have not bought the domain at the end of the reservation period, it will become available again to anybody. The reservation payment is not refundable but is deductable from the total price of the domain if you finally buy it.

You can proceed to the payment through the Paypal interface provided on our website. We chose this payment partner because it is worlwide known as a secured and reliable service.

You can also pay by bank wire transfer, contact us by email if you prefer this option.

A domain name registrar is an organization or commercial entity that manages the reservation of Internet domain names. The worldwide database of domain names is centralized and maintained by a non-profit organization named ICANN. Each registrar is accredited by ICANN and is responsible for distributing the domain names to the end-users. Here are some examples of popular registrars: GoDaddy, Enom, Gandi, NameCheap...

Please, be advised that we accept to sell only world-class domain names. Do not submit domain names if you are not convinced that they belong to the elite of domain names.

No. A trademark has to be registered for specific 'classes' (categories of businesses) and needs to be protected in every country. As it is not possible to know in advance what will be the exact use of the domain name by our customers and in which countries the business will be developed, we do not register any trademark associated to our domain names.

We recommend that you perform some verifications and ask for some legal advice before buying a domain name. You should namely check that a competitor does not use a similar name for its product, that the name is not trademarked for the same kind of product in the countries where you want to expand. If the name is not trademarked in your business sector and target countries, you may be able to register your name as a trademark. Note that if the name is already trademarked for some kinds of businesses, you may still be able to trademark it for other kinds of activities.

You are responsible for this kind of verifications. Here below are some websites which can help you to check if a trademark already exists for the domain name you want to buy.

For a checking with a worldwide database: WIPO worldwide trademark search

We recommend to check also the national offices of the countries you target ; see some examples below:
- US trademark search
- European search
- Canadian search

Note that the rules around trademarks and copyrights are quite tricky and complicated. You should ask for the help of an expert or attorney for trademark matters.

We are entrepreneurs and we experienced how difficult it is to find a premium business name. We spent weeks to think up good names for the previous businesses we created. A catchy, meaningful and brandable name is often crucial for your business but once you have your short list you can be sure that none of those domains is available! Days of brainstorming for nothing! We also realized that for our projects we often buy several 'good domain names' and only selecting one to go live. This means we had many domains registered - sometimes for several years - that were not useful to anyone. Many of the developers we knew were in the same situation.

So it became clear to us that putting all those names in a single marketplace with a powerful search engine would be really beneficial for everybody. The key thing with oneClickName is that you don't search for a domain name containing a specific keyword, you search for domain names that matches the idea behind your keywords.

Catchy, easily memorable, easily pronouncable, unique spelling, short, inspiring, meaningful, differentiating, multicultural... And a '.com' extension! It is not easy to find a premium name!

One important point is the differentiation. Most of our domain names are not just a juxtaposition of keywords. This kind of domain names do not have a high value as they do do not allow an easy communication around your company, and your customers cannot speak about you or even find you again through search engines. For example, do not create the 1000th company with a name like Build an identity and be inspiring, select a name that can become a brand and a trademark.

The .com extension is the worldwide reference. It is one of the important characteristics required to launch a global business. Once your customers know your name, they look for your .com domain on the internet. It is the natural standard extension everybody knows, with an image of worldwide leader.

A .com extension is alos cheaper to maintain: around 10-12$/year against several dozens dollars for many other extensions (e.g. : around 100$/year for the '.film' extension).

The only case we proceed to a refund is when a seller fails to transfer a domain name to a buyer. It is the responsability of the buyer to check that all aspects (legal...) have been checked before the purchase.

Each domain for sale on OneClickName is illustrated with a logo that was provided by one of our designers. Those logos are not for sale and are not included in the price you pay for a domain. Anyway, if you ask for it, we should be able to send this logo to you in vectorial format, for free.

We accept only world class domain names.

Here are some of the characteristics of such domain names:

  1. catchy: people must say 'wow, great name!'
  2. easily memorable
  3. easily pronouncable: if people needs to ask 'how did you say? what .com?', the domain name will not be selected
  4. unique spelling: it should not be necessary to spell the name to somebody who hears it for the first time ; this person should be able to write it directly
  5. short: 9 letters maximum; no more than 2 or 3 syllabs
  6. inspiring: the name should evoke a universe relative to the activity
  7. meaningful: anybody reading the name should have an idea of the business behind
  8. differentiating: most domains which are a juxtaposition of keywords do not fullfil this criterion
  9. multicultural: 'étterem' means 'restaurant' in Hungarian ; we are not interested in '' domain name - even if we really love hungarian restaurants -
  10. a '.com' extension ; if your have awesome names with some other extensions, they may be of interest for us but they must be killer names
