|I've found a domain name I like that somebody else owns. There is no website (just a completely blank page), and the WHOIS contact information is protected by a proxy company.|
Domain registars (GoDaddy, NameCheap, etc.) offer domain agency services where, for a price between $20-$60, they'll attempt to contact the domain owner and present a bid for the domain.
What's the best way to bid on the domain? Contact the proxy company and try to go through them? Or are the registrar affiliated domain agents worth the money?
