Most generic domain names including dictionary words, first/last names, and common word combinations are gone. Some of these are owned by investors, others are owned by brands.
There are some exceptions that help companies use trademark laws to obtain names but very few true exceptions really exist. The more common (and successful) way to acquire YOUR domain name is to engage proper representation.
At NameCorp® we understand the current markets for domain name acquisitions. Our primary goal at NameCorp® is to exceed your expectations. We may have all the tools but ultimately our success is measured only by YOUR definition of success. This is something where a paragraph on a Web page doesn’t seem like the best forum for discussion. Contact us. We love to talk about domains.
