    Hey.

    For personal reasons I want to buy a certain domain.

    Thing is, it is taken, and apparently the owner has passed it on to www.fabulous.com, they are the middle man in between me and the owner.

    I have only bought 1 domain before and it was not taken, any got any tips for me? I am expected to bid a bid in $ for this domain.

    Thanks in advance

    Best thing to do......

    is to contact the seller directly. Using a domain pimp (as I call them) will get you nowhere. They are motivated only by price, nothing else.
    I've contacted domain holders directly and have offered them a fair price, even offered to do a free web design and this has resulted in several owners releasing the name.
    So......contact the owner and negotiate or find out what he/she is looking for.....but negotiate, don't just ask for the name and think price is the sole motivation for the owner. Offer them some of your graphic/web design services and that may turn them.
    Good luck,
