Why should I care about my company's name, can't my product stand on its own?
We think of company names and domain names as a first introduction to your potential clients, a first introduction as it were and we all know that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. While yes your business needs to rest on your product or service it's your domain name that will get your foot in the door.
A great company name and domain name can get your clients attention and get them to your site. It is a representation of what your company or business is and what it does.
What exactly is a domain name?
A domain name is like a street address, without them (domain names and street addresses) we would never get our mail to the right person, business or we would never be able to look up directions, get where we need to be and would continually get lost.
A domain name is where people can find your business, company, blog or anything you are doing on the web, basically your address online.

When do I get my name?
As soon as the purchase is complete, we will begin the transfer process. Depending on the domain name register you plan to have your domain name with, will determine how long till the domain is in your account. If you don't have a domain name register you should set one up as soon as possible so we can transfer the domain to you, if not we will need to wait until you do.
This will be your personal holding place for your domain so that once the domain is transferred to you, you can do what you need to with it and it is in your personal possession. To begin the transfer process from DomFind to your account, we will need you customer number and the email associated with that account.
Generally, the transfer process takes a few business days, usually shorter.
We've prepared an article about how the domain name transfer process works so please check it out to learn more how long it will take and everything else about a domain name transfer.

Do the logo's come with the domain names?
No. The logo's you see on our site have been designed to give you an idea what your company name could look like on business card, billboards, and the side of a truck or building. The DomFind team feels you can get a better sense of the name, a feel for the domain name as it is, if you can see it visually instead of simply a list of names.
If you like the logo that you see with the domain name you are more than welcome to purchase it.
How much is the logo if want it?
As is: $59
Custom Design: $299
If you see a domain name that you love and you love the logo that you see with it, the logo is available for sale it two ways. The first, if you love the logo as is, DomFind will be glad to send you the logo for $59. That means you will get the logo as you see it on our website.
The second way is, when you find the perfect domain name and maybe the logo doesn't work for what you're looking to do with it, we would be more than happy to completely redesign the logo. For $299, we'll have our team of designers recreate the logo based on your likes and dislikes.
Can you change the logo if I want it?
If you are going with the custom logo design, yes you can change the logo. If you are go with the logo "As Is" no. You will have several rounds of logo design if you go with the custom logo.

We can send you your logo in a number of different formats including: .gif, .pdf, .ai, .eps, .svg, .png & .jpeg. If you have any other special format, please just let us know, we will be happy to send you the artwork in that format.
Do I own the domain name forever?
Yes you can keep it forever. Once we transfer the domain name to you, DomFind has nothing to do with the domain anymore. The domain name is in your possession, we have no claim to the name or responsibility for keeping it registered.
As long as you keep the domain name registered with whichever register you decide to go with, you can keep your domain name till the end of time.
How long can I renew the domain name for?
Depending on what register you keep the domain name with you will be asked to renew anywhere between 1 year and 10, is the average. Many registers now have "Auto Renew" buttons and once this is box is ticked it will keep renewing and you never have to worry about it anymore.
Don't worry you can always click "auto renew" at any time and the register will keep renewing it. Domain Registers are in the business to keep the domain name with them and they will send a lot of reminders as the time to renew gets close.
Where do I host the domain name?
Where you host the domain name is totally up to you. We need to transfer the domain name to a register. Some of the most popular domain registers are GoDaddy, 1&1, NameCheap, Name.com and there are many more. You just need to set up an account. Most domain registers are free to set up an account and to have the name with that company, usually runs $7 to $12 dollars a year.
How long does the transfer process take?
We it really depends on what domain name register you go with. DomFind has a deal with GoDaddy and if you decide to keep your domain name with them, we can get the domain name to you within a few hours.
If you go with any other domain name register there is a bit more back and forth which takes a bit more time. This process can take up to, but not usually, three business days. Please check out our How a Domain Name Transfer Works article for a full and detailed description of the process and a step by step tutorial of how it happens.
What is a brandable domain name?
In short a brandable domain name is a name that has been created or developed and has no intrinsic meaning Some brandable names have partial words are even built off Greek or Latin words.
For example Avoxx, has no real meaning but Vox is Latin for voice. This brandable domain name would work well for any business dealing with sound, including music, music store or even a doctor dealing with the throat.
We love brandable domain names because they word for so many different industries and they can be made into just about anything you want to make them into. Also the have been created to sound interesting and to stand out in a crowd.

Are there any additional fees?
No, not from us. While to sign up for most Domain Name Register is free you will have to pay a yearly fee.
What payments does DomFind accept?
DomFind can accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and PayPal. DomFind will be more than happy to work with Escrow.
How does escrow work?
We welcome payments via escrow. Basically we'll open the account and send you an invoice. Once you pay the invoice the money is held by the escrow company, we then send the domain name to escrow where it is also held. Once the escrow company has received both and they are satisfied the each party has provided what was promised the escrow company releases the payment and domain name to the separate parties.
This process does take a bit more time but is a great way to proceed if you have any questions about the process.
Does DomFind have payment plans?
No we don't have a payment plan, but if you are interested in a domain name and you are not able to pay for the entire thing up front, please contact us and there is a possibility we can work something out.
Are the domain names trademarked?
No, the "TM" that you see on the logos is DomFind establishing an initial claim to the mark. This is DomFind giving notice of commercial use and common-law claim of trademark rights. All rights that this incurs will be transferred to you with your purchase.
No marks have been registered with either the European Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs) or the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
What is your refund policy?
