    I really don't like any of those either. I would take some time, maybe try the Aftermarket or come up with some better ones.

    I agree with @JB Lions, I really don't like any of these for a Domain Sales Website. The problem for me is none of the names before "Domain" indicate anything to do with sales. I would recommend typing in "Domain Sales" into Lean Domain Search and see if they give something you like. Personally I prefer to have the search term first. YMMV.

    The problem with all the domains you listed is that they are singular. So the brand expectation is that when someone goes to the website, there will just be one domain for sale. Effectively the choices simply aren't gramatically correct I'm sorry to say.

    Domain in the singular would work as a prefix (although not really with the word you have there .. maybe DomainProsper could be usable .. but not very good in my opinion).

    I have tons of good marketplace domains that I've been collecting over the last 3 years .. if you're patient, a few good ones come up every now and then.

    Yes Frank those are all terrible.

    Why are you bent on .com? At the very least, go aftermarket as Lions suggested, at the very best you can probably figure out a sweet new G.

    Frank, a domain example (landing page) you included in related thread was .de. Do you have significant %%% of potential buyers from Germany, for .de domains to begin with and/or for German .coms? If so, it is not obvious that *english keywords* in the website name would be well understood by all potential visitors. Similarly, naming it in German may not be memorable or convinient for English speaking visitors. A difficult dilemma. So, did you consider some 5-7 letters "brandable" which is pronouncable on both languages, but by itself does not have any dictionary meaning. Google. They are operating on "google.com" and not on "SearchEngine.com" - an easy example.
    Just my 2c.

    I do not like any of those names. At the moment you can hand reg something like iron / domains or emerald / domains for standard reg fee - so get something short, nice and memorable and build nice brand for yourself around it. Just imo :)

    You will need an aftermarket name for this. You need a premium domain to host a premium domain marketplace. You can't expect a customer to put up cash for your names if you aren't leading by example.

    i like the high speed one, Frank.

    there’s no plural or any other form of it

    sounds like “high speed internet”... internet is ubiquitous with domains

    Immediate domain.... my #2

    Worry about alternatives to “Immediate”
    there’s So many thesaurus words for “fast”
    so what if people forget, and substitute another

    you can do cool things with logo, though

    i dont like urgent domain, cuz “urgent” sounds unplanned, even tho mean “fast” “high priority”

    Please avoid transfer + Prosper ones’
    i want cumbersome DN transfer process easy
    why u want associated with “transfer” in name?
    right now transfers hassle.. we want it over wit

    Prosper domain... keep thinking “prosperous” domain both re correct english. try get this, too

    thanks a lot to all of you
    looks like I have to rethink it

    as a non-native english speaker
    I definitely quite often
    miss the nuances in meaning and taste of a domain name

    that's why most of my domains are .de

    but in this case, I'm looking for an internationally fitting name

    Agree with the majority - None of them are any good, To be honest they all read like they have been contrived by a Non-English speaker.

    delivering a type of Over-promise / Under deliver service from the getgo.

    I agree you would be wise to change "buyuseddomain" Sounds a bit like buying second hand car type of name. Like No, I don't know the history or previous use of the domain and trust me you Don't want to know either.

    If your going to include the 'Domain' word I agree you must use the plural 'Domains'

    Look for a good Simple positive word to sit with domains but avoid anything ostentatious or over-exaggerating

    Hi

    since most .de names are searched regionally, then it would logical to use a .de to represent the marketplace, where majority of listings are .de extension.


    still, you can reg highspeeddomains.com and highspeeddomains.de

    imo...

    You should add NONE to the possible answers for the poll. I also did not see any sense with your buy used domain website but it is great you finally see if after you got feedback for it in the landing page thread:)

    I am not sure that I agree that the singular aspect makes the suggestions bad. I would interpret the singular as implying it is a place to get a domain (of which many would be offered).

    I am not wildly enthusiastic about the ones suggested and probably agree with majority to keep searching. If I had to choose one it would be Transit as it implies a domain acquisition as a way to get somewhere which is a nice analogy. That being said, some will think it means transportation niche.

    I think to know what is best, I would need to know more what type of domains you mainly plan to emphasize. Like for example prosper to me definitely means business domains and possibly even financial niche widely interpreted.

    You have been successful in this business a long time @frank-germany. Ideally a name than instils trust and implies your long term selling of domain names would be ideal.

    Another question to ask is do you only do domain sales, or do you also see branding and naming consultation and analysis. If so, domain may be limiting.

    More questions than answers. Best wishes as you consider rebranding.

    Bob

    Well now that you mentioned Epik, and even though you were being sarcastic, I would say that you wouldnt have had the need to start a thread asking for opinions if indeed you made the right choice from the get-go. No wonder you received not only negative feedback for the landing pages you are using, but also the name itself:)

    Fully agreed with your analysis Bob. I hope Mr Frank takes these points into consideration.
