For Sellers

Do I have to pay to transfer the domain if it sells on
No. All names listed at NameLiquidate are part of the expiry process at Epik, and need not be transferred between registrars.

Does my domain need to be expired to be listed?
Yes. NameLiquidate reverse auctions are for names that have expired and passed the 30-day renewal grace period. Domains that are not renewed are automatically placed in NameLiquidate 33 days after expiration.

Do you offer all TLD extensions?
Yes. We work with all extensions, including country code extensions.

What happens to my domain after the reverse auction ends?
If your domain does not sell, it will be deleted and enter redemption.

What commission do you charge for domains on
The commission rate for is a flat 9% - This means you keep 91% of the proceeds of the sale.

Where do funds go if my expired name sells?
Funds from the sale of names at NameLiquidate are placed in your Epik In-Store credit balance, which may be used to purchase any Epik product or service.

For Buyers

Can I buy any domain listed on
If the domain is listed on, you can purchase it immediately. As the domain is located at Epik, you will receive ownership immediately after payment.

Is my proxy bid visible to other buyers?
Yes. Your bid is visible to the public. Other bidders on the same domain may be aware of your bids, and be notified via email if you outbid them. To avoid losing the domain to other bidders, it's important to act fast.

I changed my mind about buying a domain, is there a refund policy?
Refunds are not offered for liquidation sales; once a purchase is made, it's expected to be honored as agreed upon.

Why did I lose the bid, even though I was the highest bidder at the end of the auction?
Even as the top bidder, you might lose the bid if you don't have a verified payment method on file, or enough Epik credit to cover the bid listed on your NameLiquidate bidding page. Before you start bidding, you’ll want to verify that your payment method is good to go.

Can I pay for a bid after the auction ends?
Placing a domain name in your cart does not remove the domain from the NameLiquidate market until it is fully paid. In order for your bid to be accepted and awarded, you must have a valid payment method or Epik account credit to cover the cost, and complete the purchase.

Can I lose the auction even though I was the highest bidder?
Yes. Other buyers can secure an immediate win on any auction using the Buy It Now (BIN) option.
