Add Domain

There are several ways you can add domains to your portfolio or marketplace database:

1 Add One domain at a time - (single action)
2 Add long list of domains - (bulk action)

Add One domain at a time (single action)

It is important to grasp the basics of adding a single domain to your portfolio before proceeding to adding long lists of domain names either by copy-paste or from excel file. Adding a single domain name to the marketplace database is a no-brainier.

  • Wait for the form to load
  • Enter necessary information
  • Select options (where applicable)
  • When done, click Submit

As you must have noticed, the form is enriched with footnotes, hints and tips to guide you through the process. Below are the visible form fields and descriptions.

Re-direct buyers to External MarketPlace:

External MarketPlace List
With DNHAT you can not only setup your own sales platform, list domains for sale, but also send/forward/re-direct buyers from your marketplace to another marketplace for buyers to complete the purchase.

How it works
Each of the domains (in your portfolio) listed on your marketplace has its unique landing page with a form, which a potential buyer must submit in order to purchase (or bid on) the domain. DNHAT offers you the option to re-direct potential buyers from the domain landing page (your marketplace) to a third-party platform for the buyer to complete the purchase process. Buyer will end up on the domain landing page (checkout page) on the third-party platform. You (or users of your platform) can apply this scenario to a single or multiple domains in the portfolio. The software comes with a list of 12 most popular third-party domain marketplaces, and you can always add more.
Extract WHOIS data for the domain after submission?Yes

If Yes, during addition of domain name to your portfolio, DNHAT automatically connects to WHOIS remote server to extract vital data about the domain(s): registrar name, DNS, domain registration and expiration dates, domain age, etc. The information is appended to the domain profile before submitting and saving it to the database.
You can connect and update domain(s) WHOIS data at any time.

Domain first letter, Domain extension, Domain name Uppercase, Domain character length are other vital info DNHAT automatically computes, append them to the domain before submission.
