Who is Gold Class Domains?
Gold Class Domains are a Sydney based privately run family basis. We specialise in domain names that have been in existence for many years and contain highly searched keywords. We know these types of domains ultimately lead to increased website traffic, higher conversion rates and more profit. So, our aim is to help as many small businesses as we can, grow their businesses. We believe their growth is our growth.
Why are your domain listing prices higher than a normal standard registration?
The majority of our domains are picked up via Auctions or purchased from a previous owner. Costs to acquire are much higher than a standard registration, as they take into consideration a number of factors such as age of domain, keyword search statistics and perceived value it can generate for a business. In addition to this, competition from the market on the day can push prices up.
How do you set prices for your domains?
One of our main goals is to bring these aged premium domains to the market at affordable prices, so we work with very small margins. Our promise is that our pricing never exceeds $199, GUARANTEED. In saying this, we only like to hold onto domains for a certain period of time. This is to ensure the integrity of the domain is maintained. So, if you are interested in a domain and you just can’t afford our listed price, don’t be shy, make us an offer, we may be at the end of our holding period and you snap it up for a bargain.
If I make an offer for a domain, when will I get a response?
We respond to all offers within a maximum of 24 hours. Please submit all offers via the relevant domain sales page.
What payment methods to you accept?
We accept PayPal (credit cards and debit cards) and bank deposit. For bank deposit, please email a copy of the receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can ensure the domain is marked as sold.
How long does it take to get control of a domain I purchase from Gold Class Domains?
Once payment is cleared, if you have a GoDaddy account, control is transferred to you instantly. If we are transferring to another Registrar, ownership and thus control, can take up to 7 days, this depends entirely on your Registrar.
What do I do with the domain I purchase from you to get the most value out of it?
This entirely depends on the reason for your purchase. If it is a domain that you intend to brand and use as your main website, we suggest you have a fully optimised website attached to it. If this is an add-on to your current online presence, we recommend forwarding the domain to your website. You can find instructions on how to do this with your Registrar. Information on how to do this with GoDaddy can be found here. If redirecting to your website, please ensure you have relevant content to the keywords in the domain you are purchasing on your website, a current SSL certificate and your website is mobile friendly. Failure in any of these areas can have a negative impact on your rankings.
What other costs do I incur once I decide to purchase a domain from Gold Class Domains?
There is only the one off cost you incur with us at Gold Class Domains. This cost is as per our listed price or accepted offer price. You will have additional costs with your Registrar which is only the re-registration cost every 2 years. Depending on your registrar, this cost can be anywhere between $25-50, every 2 years.
How long can I keep the domain I purchase?
You can essentially keep it forever. The only thing you need to do is ensure that you re-register the domain every 2 years with your Registrar.
