In our effort to help you better understand what Domain Cater offers and how we operate, we have some compiled answers to some of the most popular questions we often find in our inbox. The information below sheds more light on who we are, our policies and the process of doing business with us.
Domain Cater is a unique and versatile marketplace for a medley of premium domain names. Our domains can function as standalone, brandable entities or function as redirects to give your existing business, brand or project the additional boost that it needs. Unlike other marketplaces, we own all our domains, which dramatically increases your chances of getting your new domain name transferred to you in a timely fashion. Your purchase is 100% safe and secure.
Domain name registrars are businesses that are licensed by ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) to register domain names on behalf of individuals and businesses. After your domain purchase, we will assist you in setting up an account with the respective registrar to facilitate the transfer. You will also receive instructions on how to handle renewals to ensure you retain the domain name you just purchased.
We have a "Buy Now" as well as an "Add To Cart" button conveniently placed on each listing page. You have the option of adding an item to your cart and continue shopping or adding to your cart and checking out. Our transactions are mostly executed through Paypal, which is 100% guaranteed safe and secure.
We accept all major credit cards through PayPal. We also accept payments through our partner site Escrow.com, if you wish to pay by bank wire.
We pride ourselves in showcasing only premium quality names, which takes a great deal of time and effort. With that said, we add the best names we acquire on a weekly basis to ensure that we consistently grow our inventory.
There are a number of reasons that make it impossible for us to provide trademarks with our domains:
- A Trademark protects a name in a specific geographical location and within a specific industry. The majority of the names listed at Domain Cater can apply to multiple industries and can be used anywhere in the world.
- In order to Trademark any name the owner must either:
Be using the name in commerce, meaning you have used the name to sell or market a product or service to customers around the United States (or your country) and not just your home state.
Have good faith intentions on using the trademark in the future.
- To apply for any Trademark the application must be under the owners name (or organization), address and citizenship.
Since any given name at Domain Cater can sit for a very long period of time before being sold, we cannot say that we have intentions on using the name. Even if we could express intention, we also have no way of knowing in what country to register the trademark or in what industry. Furthermore, the trademark has to be associated with its owner. All of this is up to the user of the name.
Domain Cater is a marketplace that relies on external escrow service providers to execute transactions. While we do everything within our means to ensure your satisfaction during the purchase process, we do NOT provide exchanges and refunds after an order is made. The only exception to this policy is on the very rare occasion where we are unable to initiate transfer within 10 (ten) business days from the time of purchase. To minimize the occurrence of this unfavorable scenario, we strongly recommend the highest level of due diligence is performed prior to the transaction. We are here to assist you every step of the way.
To add a name to your favorites list just click the heart button on a name that you like. Once you click this button, you will receive an alert to let you know that it has been added to your wishlist. You will also have the option to share the link on social media or email it to a friend for their input.
All our names are designed to be original and creative. Some names are straightforward and business-oriented, while others are trendy and hip. Some are derived from exotic foreign words, while others convey qualities like strength or professionalism. Our catalog is diverse and you're sure to find something that will resonate with you on a meaningful level.
A good domain can make or break a business. It needs to be interesting enough to catch your customers' attention, and memorable enough to keep them coming back. Our names are carefully built to fulfill both these requirements.
Here are some tips on finding the perfect name:
1. Begin by either entering a keyword that describes your business into the search bar at the top of the homepage at domaincater.com. This can be subject matter, i.e. "gardening," or a characteristic, i.e. "fun" or "confident." You can also opt to search by category in the right sidebar of the domains listing page.
2. You may also narrow down your search further by checking other boxes within the sections on the sidebar.
3. Once you find a name you like, use the "Buy Now" button to begin the purchasing process.
In the footer of this page you will find a form with the title, "Get notified when we get a name you’re looking for!" You can subscribe in this form and receive our weekly emails that feature all names added that week. Our subscribers are first to jump on a good name opportunity!
Setting up your own venture always begins with a great business name. We have simplified so you can be up and running as quickly as possible. Navigate to the page of the specific domain you are interested in purchasing by clicking on the link. From there, simply click on the "Buy Now" button and follow through the prompts. You will arrive at a secure checkout screen where you can complete your purchase with your Credit Card through PayPal or Escrow.com.
Once your payment is made, you will receive an email confirming the transaction. Shortly thereafter, you will receive a follow up email from a Domain Cater representative explaining the next steps.
- We require that you create an account at the registrar where you newly acquired domain is currently housed. Most of our domains are registered with GoDaddy, one of the largest and most reputable registrars in the industry.
- Once we have received the required account information from you, we will initiate the transfer immediately.
- When the transfer is initiated, you will receive an email notification from the receiving registrar with instructions on how to confirm the transfer.
Once the transfer process is completed, you will receive another email initiating a discussion about your the design of your new complementary domain. Your completed logo will be delivered in .AI Adobe Illustrator format along with a .PNG file.
Don't hesitate to reach out with any further questions you may have through our contact page. Domain Cater will be with you every step of the way.
At Domain Cater, you are purchasing more than just a name – you are purchasing an identity. First and foremost, your purchase includes the original domain name. In addition to that, we will craft ONE custom logo concept for your specific business venture. By creating the logo after your purchase, we are sure that it is being tailored in accordance with your vision. This initial logo concept is provided free of charge. We can provide more concepts at an additional cost if you require.
We understand that the process of creating a brand identity can be overwhelming. The most important thing you need to know is that Domain Cater provides individual customer service with every order to 100% satisfaction. We believe in creating mutually beneficial partnerships with our customers. You can utilize our email service and support service with any questions or concerns.
Domain Cater also assists in the basic setup of your newly purchased domain, including ensuring a fast and effortless transfer of the domain name into your own account. We can also assist you with domain forwarding and setting up your personalized email addresses. We do not consider a job complete until you are up and running with your new business name. That is the Domain Cater commitment.
We certainly consider all offers, but we prioritize those that are above 75% of the listed price. We devote a good amount of time to market research and testing. This enables us to price our domains based on sound metrics and brandability. We will occasionally discount some of our domains during some of our domains during one of our major marketing campaigns. If you join our mailing list, we will inform so you can take advantage of the promotions.
