Domain Already Taken

Domain SearchPicking the Right Domain Name | Domain Already Taken

A domain name does not have to be online or working for it to be already registered. The domain search on our website performs searches in realtime with the domain registry and gives you the true availability of the domain. 

What to do if taken?

You have the following options when the domain you want is not available:

Register another domain (recommended)
We know from experience that purchasing domains from existing owners is quite hard. They may not respond to your requests or may place a large price on the name. The easiest and best option for you is to search for an available domain and register it.

Contact the owner to buy the domain
If you're willing to spend some money and time to buy the name from the current owner, perform a whois search to find the public contact information available for the domain owner. This is the only way for you to contact the domain owner apart from any information available on the site itself.

Dispute the registration
If you have a trademark on the domain name, you can look into disputing the registration of the domain name.

The domain was available yesterday, but not today?

Domain names go fast. We've seen so many people lose their name because they waited too long to register it and someone else registered it. If you find a name you like and it's available, register it as soon as possible. respects your domain search privacy and does not use your search data for any other purpose. Some registrars have been known to register domain names based on their customer's domain searches (known as front running). Be sure to only search for names on secure and safe sites like and don't share proposed registrations until the names are fully registered.
