Buy and sell domains and websites
with the protection of the Escrow.com
shield

Ensuring Buyers get the domain or website and Sellers get paid. Whether you're buying or selling websites or domain names online, Escrow.com will protect you against fraud, deception, and irresponsibility.

We're a government licensed and audited third party that safely holds a Buyer's payment in a trust account until the entire transaction is complete. That way, Buyers can be confident the domain will be registered in their name and Sellers can be sure they'll be paid.

The benefits of Domain and Website Escrow

Since the Buyer pays Escrow.com and not the Seller, Escrow.com can withhold payment until we're satisfied the domain name has been transferred by the Seller. One of the ways Escrow.com does this is by checking the WHOIS database of the appropriate Registrar to make certain it properly reflects the new Buyer's name as the domain name Registrant. Once this has been verified, Escrow.com releases payment to the Seller.
