Hello SdShadab,

Thanks for the question. First, domain names are registered by our customers and are their intellectual property, so we do not have the right to sell those domains. You would need to contact the owner of the domain in order to request its purchase. Also, InMotion Hosting is not a domain registrar so we would not actually register domains ourselves. We register domains through a domain registrar named Melbourne IT for the convenience of our customers who host websites with our servers.

The domain name that you mention - - is not registered to InMotion Hosting. If you need information on the domain, you can use a domain's information by using WHOIS. Below is a shortened version of the WHOIS info and you can see the domain registrar (note that it's not the domain registrar that we use):

Name server:

The name servers simply indicate that the domain is hosted by InMotion Hosting. You may contact the domain registrar, but they are not the owners of the domain and may not provide you contact with the customer as per their policies. If you do a full WHOIS query it is possible to find the actual contact information for the domain administrator. However, note that it is possible that this information may be hidden. You would then have to contact the domain registrar in order to pursue your request. If you have any further questions, please leave a comment with more details and and we will be happy to review the issue for you. If we answered your question and it's a great solution for you, please make sure to mark the answer as the BEST answer. Or please leave a comment or note of thanks so that we know your issue is resolved or ongoing.
