We Don’t Just Find Domains,
We Forge Identities.

Domain Name Acquisitions

It all starts with a great name… You can build a brand (spending millions in sunk costs to brand a made-up word or attempt to scale on a subpar domain), or you can buy one (a premium .COM domain with immediate consumer resonance and authority). But how do you purchase a domain name when best one for your company is already taken? Our Domain Name Acquisitions Services offer a solution.

Welcome to Private Domain Acquisitions Services provided by Defining.com, one of the top domain name brokerages in the world with over two decades of experience and a deep and trusted network within both the domain and business communities. The team at Defining.com has the experience to help you get the best domain name available at the best price possible—with a high touch, personalized approach tailored to each project. For each engagement we accept, we provide:

  • Professional and discreet representation
  • Experienced and knowledgeable negotiation
  • Lightning-fast response time
  • Assessment and valuation services
  • White glove escrow and clearing services
 

With Defining.com’s proprietary Domain Name Acquisitions Services, we consult with you on your naming strategy, then work diligently and strategically behind the scenes to help you discreetly acquire your desired domain name—at the right price, while keeping your identity strictly confidential. We will work with you to analyze what the acquisition will be worth to your company, along with its value as a stand-alone domain name—including analysis of associative metrics, inclusive of relevant comparable sales, to assist you in setting an appropriate price target/range for this acquisition.

We not only identify and contact the current owner of your desired domain name, but we use our industry knowledge, connections and experience to expertly negotiate and acquire the domain on your behalf, saving you a great deal of time and money. We then ensure all domain name transactions and transfers are efficiently and securely handled via Escrow.com (the market leader for domain escrow services, awarded the BBB Torch Award for Ethics), providing a seamless, elegant and efficient experience for our valued clients.

Premium domains are for companies who want their brands to be taken seriously, even revered; who want to achieve brand notoriety—woven into the fabric of the culture for decades to come. And we are uniquely qualified to make sure you acquire yours: at the right time and at the right price. But, don’t take it from us—see what some of our valued clients had to say below.

Client Testimonials

I cannot think of anyone more wonderful than Kate at helping with domain acquisitions. Kate is communicative, fast, and exceeds all expectations across the board. I will definitely be a repeat customer in the future, and more than happy to recommend future clients to her.
—Lama Al Rajih, Founder at Nuha
If there were an Olympic event for 'Domain Deal Clinching' [for Domain Acquisitions], you'd be standing on the podium with a gold medal! That's not just a saving; it's a masterstroke! You've officially set the bar high for 'Bargain of the Year.' Thanks a million, Kate.
—Yogesh Shah, CEO at iResearch Services
Kate was an indispensable partner in not only procuring the ideal domain name for our new initiative, but also crafting a brand manifesto that perfectly captured the spirit and ethos of it as well. It's rare to find partners that can deliver on multiple fronts— and do it at such a high level—I recommend Kate and team without reservation.
—Landon Taylor, CEO, MacFarlane Partners Investment Management
Kate Buckley and team are exceptional at brand strategy across not only premium domain names, but in all assets that help to complete a brand's go-to-market strategy.
—Mark Husmann, co-Founder, IBMG
Kate was incredible in supporting our team through the domain acquisition process. Her guidance was always prompt, strategic, and thorough. Would recommend her to anyone looking for help in the domain world.
—Matt Joanou, Co-founder at Stakeholder Labs
Kate, thank you so much for the opportunity to work together on the HomeFinance.com acquisition. You were super professional, patient with the process and delivered as promised.
—Jason Vondrak, President at Prospect Home Finance
Kate helped us secure our targeted domain extremely fast, and for a price well under budget. She was professional and prompt throughout. We'd recommend her services.
—Kevin Davies, CMO, Provision Analytics
We worked with Kate on a couple of strategic acquisitions. Each journey was different and Kate helped us navigate them professionally, creatively, and proactively. Kate is highly communicative and her passion for her field is what empowers her to drive on forward and give that extra oomph that it takes to cross the finish line. We would work with Kate again, and we already have! In working with Kate it was clear she had immense relevant experience to help navigate the unique twists and turns that any acquisition may present.
—Noah Dentzel, CEO, Nomad Goods
I wouldn’t want Kate sitting on the other side of the table from me. Fierce in the guise of elegance, strategic in the guise of patience, unstoppable in the guise of charm, Kate is simply the most disarming, creative, determined and savvy partner one could hope for in any business setting. Kate was the third domain broker I contacted and I knew in an instant I’d found my sherpa to take me to the summit. Three weeks from the day I signed her agreement, I was the proud owner of the perfect domain for my new enterprise. At a fraction of the initial asking price, let alone what other brokers warned would cost significantly more. All thanks to Kate. She’s simply undeniable. The best!
—Gary W. Goldstein, Storyteller | Strategist | Producer
I had the pleasure to get in contact and work with Kate in order to purchase a domain which was highly important for our company—and which we had been unable to acquire over the last few years. Kate was always very professional, stayed in contact through the process and most importantly, she did not give up even if she was not getting any response from the owner at the time of our desired domain. Finally, Kate was able to secure a negotiation where we payed a fair price to acquire the domain and guided us seamlessly through the process. We would strongly recommend her services to anyone with the same issue we had as we will certainly keep working with her in the future!
—Omar Yunes Márquez, CEO, 54D
It was a true pleasure working with Kate and team. After a quick internet search, I landed on Kate and she gave sound advice on domains without asking for anything in return. Which turned into us using her for business. She worked throughout the weekend to secure our domain name for a substantial price under asking. We cannot thank Kate enough for her professionalism and hard work on getting our Bolay.com domain. Highly recommend her.
—Chris Gannon, CEO, Bolay Enterprises
Kate was efficient and supported an elegant transaction in a timely manner. Well done.
—Ryan Herman, Founder & Co-CEO, First Direct Lending/REFI.com
Kate Buckley not only sold us a world-class domain, but a fantastic business plan and marketing blueprint as well. She is an absolute pleasure to do business with, and worked with us in transparency and integrity every step of the way
—Todd Cook, CEO, LB Interactive
Kate helped me maximize my ROI beyond what I imagined on a very large domain transaction and I cannot thank her enough. I love her style as a professional broker and more importantly, as a person. Giving and trustworthy. Classy and cool. If anyone ever needs help acquiring and/or selling a valuable domain name/brand name, you absolutely need Kate!
—Vito Pietrarosso, CEO, Media Branding LLC.
Thank you, Kate! I could tell you were awesome from the very first email. Business can be crazy and stressful most of the time, so it’s a rare thing to work with people who can actually make the process fun. I sincerely appreciate your patience and assistance through the twists and turns of this deal. Very glad it all worked out so well.
—Darren Beck, CMO, Guaranteed Rate
