Premium

Premium domains are high-value domains that have the potential to become popular web addresses with strong branding opportunities.

Premium domains are short, easy-to-remember domain names with popular extensions. They may come with a significantly higher domain registration price, and in some cases, they may have a higher domain renewal and transfer cost as well.

The domains are marked as premium on Registry level (this is not done by a Registrar company) The price is also established by the Registry and may vary only slightly depending on the Registrar you choose.
