While working on our own startup ideas we noticed how difficult it was to find good business names, especially since they needed an accompanying domain name in today's high-tech world where websites and emails are the norm. And with millions of businesses around the world competing for customer attention, the brand name becomes ever so important.
A premium name can help a company stand out from the crowd. However, finding a great domain name is like looking for a needle in the haystack. Most are already taken and existing owners want outrageous prices in return.
This is why we built Alter, a domain marketplace that connects entrepreneurs with premium business names. Domains found on our marketplace are carefully hand-picked and professionally appraised by our team of branding experts. Every domain is priced at market value and comes with a relist value guarantee so you can recoup your investment in the future if needed.
These are the benefits of buying your domain name on the Alter marketplace.
Domains are hand-picked by our team of branding experts.
Every domain has a fixed price with no hidden fees or charges.
Domains can be relisted here in the future for the same price.
A professionally designed logo is included with every domain.

Alter offers buyers the ability to purchase domains via interest-free monthly installments. This allows you to spread your payments over 3-36 months making the purchase more affordable.
Here's how installments work:
- When you're ready to purchase a domain, click on the "Buy Now" button and choose the number of installments you want to spread your payments over. You agree to pay the fixed monthly amount shown until the domain is paid off.
- Once we receive your first installment payment, we will ask the seller to transfer the domain into our escrow account. This process typically takes a few business days.
- Once the domain is in our possession, you can start using it right away by asking us to make any DNS changes you like (e.g. configure your website, email addresses, nameservers, etc).
- Your credit card will automatically be charged the same amount every month until the domain is paid off at which point we will transfer the domain to you and the purchase will be completed.
- If a payment fails, you will have 14 days to update your billing information. If you default, the domain will be returned to the seller and you will forfeit all past payments.
- All payments will be final and non-refundable once the domain is in escrow. Alter will pay for all domain renewal fees while the domain is in our possession.
Please note that sellers can choose specifically which domains to sell using installments so not all domains can be purchased using a payment plan.

Can I use the logo shown next to the domain?
Absolutely, each domain comes with a professionally designed logo that you can use exclusively for your own company, product, or service.
Are monthly installments available for all domains?
Sellers can choose specifically which domains to sell using monthly installments
so not all domains can be purchased using a payment plan.
Are there any other fees besides the price of the domain?
Nope, domain prices are all-inclusive. There are no other hidden fees or charges.
What is your refund policy?
Alter serves as a third-party marketplace for domain names. Refunds and exchanges are not allowed once an order has been placed, except in the case that the domain seller fails to initiate the domain name transfer within 10 business days from the time of purchase. Buyers are advised to perform all necessary due diligence prior to making a purchase.
