Safe to buy domains via BuyDomains.com?

Found a domain I want but unsure they can be trusted

Hello people,

I found a domain that I would like to buy, and it is currently BuyDomains.com that has it. The price displayed on their site is $480.

Can these people be trusted? Should I call them or is it safe to purchase it online using a creditcard? Their website looks so scammy, it gives me a bad feeling. Might they overcharge my card? I am currently abroad so if they empty my creditcard I am in big trouble.

Has anyone experienced any problems with these people in the past?

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Buydomains are part of NameMedia which in terms of the Domain Industry is pretty large. I would guess BuyDomains is one of the safest domain companies to do business with.

I've used BuyDomains for many years however I did transfer many names to my current registrar when they became "not so competitive" for renewals however I do still have a dozen or so with them plus their renewals charges have been reduced considerably since then.

They send out some quite informative newsletters and I can't recollect ever having a problem with them.

I have purchased a few domains through them and it has always been a smooth process.

Alrightee . . the votes are in . . and even though we don't "do votes for service providers" (mostly :-P) I'll add my vote to the column that says "Yes, when you pay BuyDomains they transfer the name to you."

At this point, reading no objections, I'm closing the thread.

Thanks for the input and, keep in mind, we really, rarely host voting threads.
