What are some of the ways to contact the domain owner for a domain name which has not been developed and has a private whois? I have always been lazy to address this problem. But let's say I wish to acquire a domain name which has a private whois and the website hasn't been developed either. What is the way to get in touch with the owner? Here is the query that a friend has: "I have a small client that wants to purchase a domain name. It's parked, and whois and all google search efforts to find out who the owner is has provided no information. What is the best brokers or services for small purchases? It's not an important purchase, they would not want to spend more than a few hundred dollars, and would rather not pay anyone if the sale doesn't go thru."
