I'm interested in obtaining a URL / domain that someone else currently owns. Does anyone on here know how this works?
My reason for asking is this: I have a very uncommon first name, coupled with one of the most common surnames in the world. For examples sake, lets call it LizSmith.com. Well, LizSmith.com is currently owned by an Irish real estate agent and it is due to expire soon. We happen to share a name and I really, really want to get that web address.
GoDaddy offers a Domain Buy Service- is that the way to go? Is it guaranteed that the'd get the URL for me? How does one do this? Anyone on GR know? Would I get further by contacting her directing and inquiring about the domain?
I'm totally in the dark on this. I just know that I really, really hope to get MyName.com at the end of it.
Thank you in advance for your advice!!
