Frequently Asked Questions

What names can I sell?

We're looking for domain names that make good names for businesses or products. We have a strong preference for dot-coms.

See our detailed guide on what domains we do and don't accept.

Can I list my domain name elsewhere?

No. We need to make sure that if someone buys your domain name, they will receive it. To ensure this, you must redirect your domain to the appropriate name page on brandpa.com.

What TLDs do you accept?

Nearly all of our domains are .com, but will we consider exceptional domains with other global extensions.

How can I submit my domain names for listing?

Simply register to the Brandpa marketplace and submit the domain names you’d like us look into. We'll contact you once we review them for you.

How does listing work?

  • Sign up for a free account
  • Submit your names
  • You'll be notified by email if your names are approved or rejected
  • If approved we'll suggest a price which you can request to change
  • You pay $5 to list each approved name
  • You update your domain name to point to Brandpa
  • Brandpa approve your listing
  • When your name is sold, or if you receive serious inquiries, we contact you via email
  • You can log in to review all of your names on our seller's dashboard

What does the $5 listing fee cover?

Your listing fee goes towards designing your logo, and writing your listing.

Who sets the price?

You are able to set your own price, but it must be at least $1,000 USD. Once the domain name you submit to us gets approved, we price it for you, however, you can suggest a new price once a listing is approved, but not after your domain has been listed or sold.

Do all names get mobile / letterhead / website designs?

We reserve these elements for higher-value domains, at our discretion.

How do I get paid?

You can choose to be paid via PayPal or Payoneer (i.e. bank transfer).

How does Brandpa's commission rate work?

You receive 75% of the total selling price, and Brandpa receives 25%. We cover any transaction fees within our 25%.

Can I provide a logo I've created?

We can take a look at any logo you’ve created but we can’t guarantee we’ll use it with your listing. Providing a logo does not impact your listing fee.

Can customers negotiate prices?

We allow customers to make an inquiry about a domain, which we forward to you. You can ask us to negotiate on your behalf, and choose to accept a lower price if your wish. You can configure how negotiation works for each of your domains.

What are coupons and how do they work?

Sometimes Brandpa may offer coupons as part of a marketing campaign to increase sales. For example, we might partner with a website who could deliver many visitors to us, in exchange for an exclusive discount for their members.

Sellers may choose whether they want their names to accept coupons during these campaigns. If you do so, you allow Brandpa to offer your domain at up to a 10% discount of the domain's list price during such a promotion.

When a domain is sold at a discount, the amount paid to both the seller and Brandpa is reduced by the discount percentage, e.g. if a domain was discounted 10% then both Brandpa and the seller would be paid 10% less.

What if I want to stop using Brandpa?

You are free to remove your domains from Brandpa at any time, however you must notify us of this. You should also know that once you remove your domains, any logos or visuals that we created will be lost.

You must also agree to complete any sales which have already been paid for.

Do I need to point my domain name to Brandpa’s servers?

Yes. There are two reasons why we need you to do this:

  1. We verify the domains you want to list on our marketplace are the domains you own.
  2. If anyone visits your domain, they will be shown that domain on Brandpa’s marketplace.

Your domain name is more likely to be sold that way.

How do I point my domain name to Brandpa’s servers?

Once your submitted domain name is approved, you’ll be asked to verify your ownership of the domain by pointing your domain name to Brandpa’s servers. We’ve made the requirements as simple as possible, but if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us on sellers@brandpa.com.

There are two ways you can point your domain names to us:

  1. Redirect your domain to Brandpa by "Domain / Web Forwarding" option that is provided by your domain name registrar. To successfully forward your domain name to us, simply enter this URL in the field provided by your registrar:
    https://brandpa.com/name/[your domain name without .com]
    For instance, if you own 'bar.com' you'd need to forward your domain name to: https://brandpa.com/name/bar
  2. OR change your domain's DNS records. To do that, you’ll need to edit the nameservers for your domain in your registrar’s control panel. Set the first and second nameservers to:
    • ns1.brandpa.com
    • ns2.brandpa.com
    Leave any other nameservers blank.

What happens after I point my domain name to Brandpa’s servers?

We check whether the domain names were pointed to us properly. If so, we prepare a logo, descriptions and list your domain names to our marketplace. You'll be notified about this via a separate email.
