Frequently
Asked Questions

• How Are The Domains Sold?

All our domains are listed for sale in the Namecheap.com marketplace. This means you can instantly purchase them without any negotiations with a 3rd party or an uncertain delay while we manually push the domain to you.

Once you've bought the domain via Namecheap, they will handle the entire process of placing it in your account right away - Starter.Domains isn't involved in this at all. Namecheap is a very reliable registrar and maintains millions of domains for users.

• How Soon Can I Use A Domain?

Because our domains are all listed in the NameCheap marketplace the transfer to your NameCheap should be almost instant. Sometimes there is a delay where they wait a day before fully finalizing the transfer, but you'll still see it in your dashboard right away. If you have any questions about the delivery of your new domain you can contact Namecheap support like you would with any other domain purchase. You can see Namecheap's support page here: https://www.namecheap.com/help-center/

• What About Refunds?

Since all our domains are entirely sold via the Namecheap marketplace you'll need to contact their support if you have any questions after purchasing. Buying a domain via Namecheap requires you to accept their Terms and Conditions of sale. You can see Namecheap's support page here: https://www.namecheap.com/help-center/.

• Why Only Namecheap?

Starter.Domains has only just launched and using Namecheap marketplace listings was the quickest way to get up and running. You're welcome to suggest other registrars we should use - contact support@starter.domains.

• Why Just Prices < $200?

I'm always thinking about business ideas and love naming each project I think of. I always just presumed every founder had a stash of far too many domains they'll never actually end up using. Then I met some founders who love starting things but enjoyed the business process more than the ideation - i.e. their sweet spot was buying domain & logo pairs from marketplaces or even a whole up & running project from a broker and then working on it.

So Starter.Domains is built for these founders. I get to enjoy thinking of great names and bidding on domain names on auction, far more than I would if I had to actually start a project for each name I find! And, since this is just a fun side project, I'd much rather quickly flip a nice domain I found to someone who'll actually use it than just squat them with unrealistic $20k prices for years...

• Do You Sell 3rd Party Domains?

Currently not but you're welcome to send me any domains you think I should buy to list on Starter.Domains!
