What is a Premium Domain Name?

Premium domain names are high quality domains that have already been registered, but are available for sale at a premium price. The price of a premium domain name varies according to quality.

Due to their higher quality, premium domain names carry the following benefits:
  • Easier to remember: Shorter, catchier domain names will keep visitors coming back to your site.
  • Better Brand Image: Quality generic domains convey an image of prestige and added credibility, which in turn increases the likelihood that a visitor places an order.
  • Improved Search Engine Ranking: Domain names that contain search engine keywords are more likely to gain top search engine rankings for those keywords.
  • Traffic Generating: Many generic domain names receive hundreds or even thousands of visitors per day.
  • Investment Potential: A Premium Domain name is an asset that your business invests in and can later resell for a profit.
