Have you or anyone you known ever encountered unethical business practices that cost your business in time and money?
Why do premium domain names cost so much? What is the difference in a premium domain name versus a domain name?
Domain names are quite powerful entities in the world of the internet, and can make or break a business when an owner allows the domain name to expire.
If the owners fail to pay the yearly or quarterly domain name renewal fees, the domains become the property of the registrar.
You may know this or have already experienced this costly lesson.
Expired domain names sometimes become the property of domain investors, known as domainers, or sometimes trademarked expired domain names end up in the hands of unethical cybersquatters.
However, no matter who owns a given domain name, there is a different class of domain names on the market known as premium domain names.
Typically, premium domain names have been previously registered for quite some time.
Some are put to use while some are no longer used by the owners or registered.
In most cases, many of these valuable domains are redirected while others are parked in hopes that someone would come along want to purchase the domain name for their business.
