    Hi everyone,
    I'm french so xcuse me if my english is bad :)
    I work for a big fashion company in Paris France and i know they're going to launch a new huge brand.
    It's a secret project they're working on and i saw some documents about it.
    I saw the final domain name they're going to use. It's a .paris tld and i think it's not yet bought
    Can someone please help me to know how i can buy this domain before they do ?
    And how much will it cost ? If it's less than 500$ i will buy it
    I've never bought a domain before
    thanks

    Have it occurred to you that they choose the name because the domain is available?
    Once you buy it, they will change the name, because negotiating with the owner (you) will be a waste of precious time.

    .paris is between $50 to $70. So you will not need $500 for it.

    If they launch the brand and trademark it you will just get a take down and if they are "huge" you do not have enough money to fight them. I would save your time. Money talks.

    Go here: https://ca.godaddy.com/fr?countryview=1

    If it is available, then it is still free.

    They will know your name when they will transfer the money. If its ever reaches that stage, thats it.
    You can buy on a friend's name, but ask Willson, he knows best how easy it is to find the friends of your friend. :)
