Contact the holder
If they have made their contact details accessible, you can find them using Whois. You can then begin a negotiation to purchase the domain name in question.
Buy a domain on the secondary market
In some cases, the domain name you are looking for has already been put up for sale by the holder, and is available on the secondary market. If this is the case, the domain name will appear in your search results with the "secondary market" label. OVHcloud can then act as a trusted third party to manage the transaction and transfer operations.
