Thanks to new HostBill functionality you can now offer premium domain names and sell them with a margin!

What are premium domain names?

Premium domain names are usually short, memorable, easy-to-spell names that end in a popular extension such as .com. Domains are considered premium for a large number of reasons including length, keywords and brandability. Premium domains tend to cost a lot more than normal domains, because they are more likely to drive traffic to a website.

How to sell premium domain names with HostBill?

HostBill now supports Premium domain names and you can enable them in Domain & DNS Settings. With this option enabled, if searched domain is premium and available, you can offer it with margin. The value of the margin can be set as desired (as a percentage of the registry price), so it is totally up to you how you want to price your premium domains.

Please note that currently our core lookup engine is not able to search for premium domains. To be able to search for premium domain names you need to choose in Lookup settings one of the domain modules, that support premium names.  

Currently, premium domains are supported by modules:

  • RRPProxy
  • Realtime Register
  • OpenProvider
  • Enom
  • OpenSRS
  • ResellerClub
  • ResellerID
  • NetearthOne

Premium domain names present higher value to customers. Such domains add authenticity to their business and help them get more visitors to their website. For domain buyers it’s a branding and marketing investment and although it can be a big expense, many premium domains renew at a standard rate. It’s well worth to have them available for purchase, not only for profit but also to respond to the expectations of the potential customers.
