Namecheap and Tucows settle legal dispute

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 11/08/2018 - 14:17

Transfer dispute was resolved in a legal settlement.

Namecheap and Tucows (NASDAQ: TCX) have entered into a settlement agreement to resolve a transfer dispute.

Namecheap, a former Enom reseller, sued Tucows (which now owns Enom) because it said that Tucows was dragging its feet over transferring millions of domain names to Namecheap. Tucows said it was just a matter of using the appropriate mechanism to transfer the domains.

Following a court order, Tucows transferred 2.65 million domains to Namecheap in January 2018. It then entered into a settlement agreement with Namecheap in September 2018, under which Namecheap agreed to pay an “administrative fee” to Tucows for services related to the transfer. Tucows transferred a further 0.24 million domains later that month. The company will transfer the remaining 0.4 million domains to Namecheap in the fourth quarter.

The net-net: Namecheap eventually got the names transferred the way it wanted and Tucows got at least some of the costs covered.

The settlement was disclosed in Tucows’ 10-Q filed with the SEC yesterday.

Pennsylvania Attorney General subpoenas Epik over Gab.com domain name

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 11/07/2018 - 21:52

AG asks Epik to hand over communications with Gab.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro has asked domain name registrar Epik to send it information about its interactions with Gab, the social network that came under fire after one of its users shot people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Gab.com was registered at GoDaddy before moving to Uniregistry, and then to Epik. Epik founder Rob Monster got in touch and invited Gab to move the domain to its service, but he said he didn’t take the decision lightly.

It’s not clear what the Attorney General is looking for, but he is asking for all communications between Gab and the company, information about people working at Gab, and any complaints about Gab that Epik has received.

Gab disclosed the subpoena on twitter.

Hi @PAAttorneyGen do you really want to be seen as the AG who went up against the first amendment and CDA 230? You will be a made fool. I promise you that. We will not be bullied or intimidated. pic.twitter.com/yDckmAUoQM

19 end user domain sales up to $150,000

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 11/07/2018 - 18:16

A marketing automation software provider, a food processing company and a cryptocurrency investment firm all bought domain names last week.

Last week’s newsworthy sale of User.com has officially transferred making it this week’s #1 sale and the top end user sale from Sedo this past week. It was a good week for end user sales with lots of purchases by software development companies and manufacturing businesses.

The list is below, and you can view previous lists like this here.

User.com $150,000 – Purchased by User, a marketing automation software company out of the UK that was previously called UserEngage.

Fahrzeuge.de €18,700 – fahrzeuge=vehicle in German. The #2 sale in the ccTLD category was purchased by Toha, a German car trading network.

TaxFree.de €8,000 – Forwards to Buhl.de, a German software developer of tax and finance related software.


SCMG.com $7,000 – This 4-letter .com was purchased by the Sun Country Marine Group, a high-end boat retailer.

Fight24.com €5,750 – This site is currently forwarding to mabn.eu, the Martial Arts Broadcasting Network. They operate the Fight24 channel which features live streaming of boxing and other forms of fighting matches.

CineLounge.com $5,500 – The domain is under development with the message “Luxury Lounge Theaters Coming Soon Near You”, so ultimately this will be a site for a chain of luxury theaters.

ScratchProtection.com $5,000 – Mac Neil Automotive Products, which is better known as the WeatherTech brand. This name fits perfectly with its line of automotive protective gear.

Arbeitsplatten.com $3,750 – Arbeitsplatten=Countertops in German. This site is for equarz, a German supplier of natural stone, ceramics and quartz within the kitchen design industry.

AVQ.co $3,500 – Purchased by Logiciel Lavasoft of Canada, a software development company that produces spyware and malware detection software, including Adaware. AV might stand for Antivirus, but I’m not sure about the Q.

SkyPad.net $3,300 – The domain is registered to Comfort Concepts, LLC but the email address is the company’s law firm, so its difficult to tell exactly what this domain will be used for.

FuneralBookings.com $3,200 – Purchased by Requiem Funeral Bookings. The site is still in development with the message “The Future in Funeral Bookings”.

CapSun.com €3,000 – This domain name is now owned by a French company who operates campsites and recreational parks in France and Spain.  It looks like the official name is Capfun.

Bar45.com $3,000 – A golf course restaurant and bar by the same name in Gulf Shores, Alabama bought this domain name.

MedSkills.com $3,000 – This site is in development with the message “A platform for existing medical personnel to increase productivity through connection and enhancement of medical skills.”

Equities.io $2,988 – Forwards to BlockVentures.com, a blockchain and cryptocurrency investment company. In Q3, 2018 they are launching the first ICO specific affiliate network. They also own Securities.io which is slated to be a news website and token listing platform for Security Tokens, so Equities.io has potential for another project in development.

Checkout.fr €2,950 – Checkout.com bought the French country code equivalent of its domain name.

Baader.it €2,750 – Baader, a manufacturer of food processing machinery, bought the Italian country code equivalent of its .com domain name.

A coming push for Trusted Notifier programs in .com

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 11/07/2018 - 15:57

U.S. Government would like Trusted Notifier programs for .Com.

Last week, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) released a statement when it renewed its Cooperative Agreement with Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN). Here’s the second paragraph of the brief statement:

Amendment 35 confirms that Verisign will operate the .com registry in a content neutral manner with a commitment to participate in ICANN processes. To that end, NTIA looks forward to working with Verisign and other ICANN stakeholders in the coming year on trusted notifier programs to provide transparency and accountability in the .com top level domain.

These statements seem to contradict each other. The first statement says that Verisign won’t get involved with what content is on .com domains. That’s the status quo. The second is about so-called Trusted Notifier programs in which certain “trusted” groups can make complaints about content that the registry will take seriously. An example is the program the Motion Picture Association of America has with Donuts.

It’s possible this paragraph was inserted in the statement to appease certain groups. The first statement would appease Ted Cruz, who was concerned that the NTIA ending its IANA contract with ICANN would lead to China and Russia having their way with the internet. (That hasn’t happened.) The second statement would appease intellectual property interests.

The statement makes it clear that the U.S. would like to engage with the ICANN community on Trusted Notifer programs, but ultimately it’s just one voice in the conversation. I would think that Verisign wants to avoid any such programs because, as the first sentence of the paragraph notes, Verisign has never been involved with the content side of what’s hosted on .com domains. That falls to UDRP, the courts and the registrars. Verisign leaves the resolution to other parties, and only transfers a domain when ordered to do so by a court.

GM wants help naming its new eBike

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 11/06/2018 - 21:30

Company holds contest for people to name its new eBike line. Is this a domain name opportunity?

One of General Motors eBikes. Photo courtesy GM.

General Motors is launching two eBikes and it wants your help naming them.

The company is running an eBike naming contest. The winner gets $10,000 and nine runners-up will get $1,000 each.

GM’s stated needs are interesting, and include things that many people think about when considering domain names:

  • Does the name bring our mission to life?
  • Does it inspire people to choose eBikes as their preferred mode of transportation?
  • Does it give rich personality to the product?
  • Is the tone smart and provocative?
  • Is it compelling to the target consumer?
  • Is it meaningful in multiple languages?
  • Is it trademarkable?

While the brief doesn’t discuss domain names, this might be an opportunity to pitch a name you already own. (I quickly searched the rules/TOS for “domain” and didn’t see anything that would preclude this, but make sure you aren’t signing over any additional rights with your submission.) This might also be an opportunity for Donuts to pitch a clever .bike domain name.

Judging from the domain used for the contest–ebikebrandchallenge.com–they could use a little help on the domain front.

(Hat tip: Francois)

.ME introducing internationalized domain names

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 11/06/2018 - 14:25

IDNs will enable .ME domains to be personal for people around the world.

The .ME registry is launching internationalized domain names (IDNs) on November 12.

While many registries offer IDNs, I think .ME offering them at this point is newsworthy given the registry’s size and because of how many people use .me domains. .Me is technically the country code domain name for Montenegro, but people use it for personal sites for obvious reasons.

A lot of people use (personal name).me for their website, and IDN .me addresses will open up a lot of new names.

Supported languages and scripts include:

Arabic, Belarusian, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Chinese (traditional and simplified), Croatian, Danish, Finnish, French, German, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Montenegrin (Latin and Cyrillic), Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian (Latin and Cyrillic), Spanish, Swedish, Turkish and Ukrainian.

Listen to an interview with .ME registry CMO Natasa Djukanovic on DNW Podcast #191.

ICANN will use $36 million of new TLD auction proceeds to cover shortfall

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 11/06/2018 - 13:27

ICANN will use a combination of auction proceeds and operational savings to replenish reserve fund.

ICANN’s board has decided to fill its coffers with $36 million from new TLD auction proceeds.

ICANN’s organizational growth and the IANA transition has caused a budget shortfall, and ICANN plans to make it up by cutting costs and raiding the new TLD auction piggy bank.

The organization believes its reserve fund should equal one year of operating costs. It’s $68 million below that point.

It plans to make up this deficit over eight years by running a fiscal surplus of $32 million total. The other $36 million will be taken from the new top level domain auction proceeds.

Auctions have delivered over $240 million in cash. The community is still deciding how to divvy up that cash, but giving some of it back to ICANN was never the intention.

There’s a veiled threat to new TLD registries that might be upset about ICANN using some of it to cover its shortfall: another option was for ICANN to raise fees.

Domain sales at NameJet in October

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 11/05/2018 - 21:35

October was a slow month at NameJet.

NameJet had a very slow October, at least when it comes to sales of $2,000 and higher.

The company reported 37 such sales for a total of $133,000. Muhu.com was at the top of the stack with a $15,200 sale price.

Other notable sales include GeorgiaBulldogs.com (a risky domain name), eBbay.com (another risky one) and LakeProperties.com (a fantastic domain that sold for a low price).

Here’s the complete list of $2,000+ sales at NameJet last month.

Rob Monster explains why he accepted GAB.com domain at Epik

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 11/05/2018 - 14:45

Controversial site moves its domain name to Epik.

Rob Monster, CEO of Epik, believes in “Digital Sovereignty.”

Most domain name registrars don’t like a hot potato, but Epik founder Rob Monster has decided to serve as the registrar for one–Gab.com.

If you aren’t familiar with the site, the “free speech” social network has been in the news because the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter ranted on the site.

The domain was at GoDaddy, which asked Gab.com founder Andrew Torba to move the domain elsewhere after the shooting. The domain moved to Uniregistry before finding a home at Epik.

I’m not surprised that Epik CEO Rob Monster accepted the domain transfer. Monster often uses terms like “digital sovereignty” and promotes decentralization. Epik has promoted itself as “The Swiss Bank of Domains”.

In a blog post this weekend, Monster wrote that “De-Platforming is Digital Censorship. Blacklisting is Digital Shunning.”

He wrote:

As the news broke, and as some elements in the mainstream media rendered their judgement, I embarked on my own search for truth. Along the way, I did have an opportunity to meet with the Founder of Gab, Andrew Torba, an entrepreneur who was willing to swim against the tide for what he believes is right, namely empowering netizens to discuss openly about matters of mutual interest with limited risk of censorship.

Although, I did not take the decision lightly to accept this domain registration, I look forward to partnering with a young, and once brash, CEO who is courageously doing something that looks useful. As I reflect on my own journey as a truth-seeking tech entrepreneur, I have no doubt that Andrew will continue to develop not only as tech entrepreneur but also as a responsible steward — one that can balance bravado with diplomacy and who tempers courage with humility.

I’m curious if other registrants of controversial sites will move to Epik as a result of this decision. Many of these sites cost more to be the registrar of than the $10 or so they pay each year. They come with headaches. But those are apparently headaches Monster is willing to handle in furtherance of his beliefs.

Holy sh!t…Verisign just called out “Domain Scalpers” and its biggest customers

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 11/02/2018 - 18:05

Verisign says its biggest customers are engaged in a questionable practice of reselling domain names.

Fresh off a win with the U.S. government that will let it increase prices on .com domain names, Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) has dissed its biggest customers: domain investors.

In a blog post today, Verisign calls people who buy domains to sell for higher prices “domain scalpers” and says they are the ones to blame, not Verisign.

Among the companies it calls out are Turn Commerce and GoDaddy, who are supporters of Internet Commerce Association. Verisign writes:

Flipping domain names or warehousing them to create scarcity adds nothing to the industry and merely allows those engaged in this questionable practice to enrich themselves at the expense of consumers and businesses.

Yet it’s these very companies–especially Turn Commerce–that Verisign can give credit to for keeping its domain registrations growing. It’s domain investors in China that gave the company a big boost. It’s companies like Turn Commerce that have bought millions of domains that have padded Verisign’s bottom line.

Verisign has been catering to this market for years. Sponsoring its conferences, promoting domain investing, creating the very tools designed to let domain investors know which domains to register…and now it wants to pretend it has nothing to do with this “questionable practice”. C’mon.

I’m flummoxed by Verisign’s decision to post this. I mean, it just won. I can understand the company publishing this if Verisign was trying to move the discussion, but not that it got want it wants, why would it bash its biggest customers?

I’m dumbfounded.

Who wins, who loses from Trump Admin decision on domain names

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 11/02/2018 - 16:37

Verisign is the big winner as consumers face higher bills for .com domain names.

David Redl, who leads the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, gave Verisign a windfall. It’s not clear what he got in return.

The U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) has extended the Cooperative Agreement between it and Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN). This agreement governs how Verisign is able to operate .com, which has a contract with ICANN to run.

The biggest element of the agreement is pricing. Previously, the agreement froze the wholesale price that Verisign could charge for .com domains. The new agreement still has pricing restrictions but allows for 7% price hikes in four out of every six years. Actual pricing must be negotiated with ICANN.

Those 7% price increases mean the price registrars pay for a .com could increase up to 31% every six years. They pass these costs on to their customers.

I’m still struggling to understand what NTIA chief David Redl got from Verisign in return for these price increases. The NTIA release states that Verisign has agreed to “operate the .com registry in a content neutral manner”, which might be a pat on the back to Ted Cruz, who was upset about the NTIA giving up a key contract to ICANN that gave it some theoretical additional control over the internet. But nothing changes here; Verisign has always run .com in a content-neutral manner.

Here’s who wins and who loses from the agreement:

Big Winner: Verisign – This is the most obvious. Nearly all of Verisign’s business is maintaining its monopoly contract to run .com. Every cent it raises prices drops directly to the bottom line. I have to hand it to Verisign; this deal will be a boon for investors. They have a contract to run .com that’s already well above market prices, and they will likely get to increase prices even further. Its stock is up 18% today.

Winner: Other Registries -When Verisign increases .com prices, it makes other TLDs seem more appealing. Other domains can be priced lower, and even those that are priced higher will be able to justify their prices to the marketplace.

Winner: ICANN – ICANN wants more cash in the bank, and what better way to do this than to renegotiate its contract with Verisign. ICANN will grant Verisign price increases in return for Verisign giving a bigger kickback to ICANN’s coffers.

Winner: Phil Corwin – The outspoken critic of Verisign laid out excellent reasons Verisign shouldn’t be able to increase .com prices when he worked for an advocacy group that represents domain owners. Then Verisign hired him, silencing a key critic. Think he gets a bonus?

Depends: Domain Registrars -This might seem counterintuitive, but some domain registrars stand to benefit from the wholesale price increases. Whenever Verisign has increased fees in the past, these registrars have used it as an excuse to raise their prices and blame someone else. History tells us that they tend to hike their prices more than the 7% that’s being assessed to them.

Other registrars will be hurt, especially ones that offer low-cost services or have customers with large domain portfolios. GoDaddy will be one of the hardest hit. It’s looking at millions of dollars a year in extra fees based on its portfolio alone, plus passing along fee hikes to all of its customers.

Big Losers: Consumers – Consumers will pay more for their .com domains. A very small business that has one or two domains won’t feel the sting, but in aggregate there will be a large hit to SMBs. Larger corporations, domain investors, and businesses that rely on lots of domains to make their business hum will directly feel the pain.

Verisign stock skyrockets on new contract terms

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 11/02/2018 - 15:20

Stock up 18% after U.S. government grants pricing windfall.

Shares in Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) are trading sharply higher today after the company signed a new agreement with the U.S. Government for .Com.

That Verisign would continue to run .com was never in doubt, but the Department of Commerce also agreed to let Verisign increase the price of .com domain names substantially.

Verisign shares are up about $25 to $166, up 18%. Shares topped $175 earlier in the day.

.Com price hikes are not guaranteed, as Verisign still needs to negotiate them with ICANN, the group that oversees the internet’s naming system. However, ICANN is likely to grant price hikes in return for larger fees paid from Verisign to ICANN.

They are certainly toasting in Reston, Virginia this morning.

Breaking: U.S. Gov Grants Verisign .Com Price Hikes

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 11/01/2018 - 20:37

Major .com price hikes could be coming.

The U.S. Government has extended its Cooperative Agreement with Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) for managing the .com domain name. The deal will allow Verisign to negotiate with ICANN to raise the price of .com by 7% in each of the last four years of each six-year .com contract.

Verisign released this statement:

Amendment 35 provides Verisign the pricing flexibility to change its . com Registry Agreement with ICANN to increase wholesale price for . com domain names. Specifically, the flexibility permits Verisign to pursue with ICANN an up to 7% percent increase in the price for . com domain names, in each of the last four years of each six-year period of the . com Registry Agreement. Amendment 35 clarifies that the vertical integration restrictions on Verisign’s ability to own an ICANN-accredited registrar apply only to the . com registry and not to other services offered by Verisign, and the .com Registry Agreement can be amended to reflect that. Amendment 35 also identifies the circumstances that require approval by the DOC for further changes to the .com Registry Agreement, extends the expiration of the Cooperative Agreement to November 30, 2024, and provides for the automatic renewal of the Cooperative Agreement for six-year terms unless the DOC provides Verisign with written notice of non-renewal 120 days prior to the end of the then-current term. Finally, Amendment 35 confirms that Verisign will operate the . com registry in a content neutral manner with a commitment to participate in ICANN processes.

In the amendment, the U.S. Department of Commerce stated that ccTLDs, new gTLDs and social media “have created a more dynamic DNS marketplace”, and as such, it’s appropriate for Verisign to have pricing flexibility.

Price hikes can’t begin for two years from now. Verisign will still have to get ICANN’s approval for any price hikes, but ICANN has previously acquiesced. ICANN is likely to grant price hikes in return for a higher cut of the action.

The full amendment is here (pdf).

The Department of Commerce billed the changes as reducing regulatory burdens in line with Trump’s policies, and took a stab at the Obama Administration for freezing .com prices:

NTIA and Verisign have agreed to extend and modify the Cooperative Agreement. These modifications are in line with policy priorities of the Trump Administration. The changes create a new commitment to content neutrality in the Domain Name System (DNS), provide market-based pricing flexibility, and reduce the regulatory burden on Verisign.

Amendment 35 confirms that Verisign will operate the .com registry in a content neutral manner with a commitment to participate in ICANN processes. To that end, NTIA looks forward to working with Verisign and other ICANN stakeholders in the coming year on trusted notifier programs to provide transparency and accountability in the .com top level domain.

The amendment repeals Obama-era price controls and provides Verisign the pricing flexibility to change its .com Registry Agreement with ICANN to increase wholesale .com prices. Specifically, the flexibility permits Verisign to pursue with ICANN an up to 7 percent increase in the prices for .com domain names, in each of the last four years of the six-year term of the .com Registry Agreement. The changes also affirm that Verisign may not vertically integrate or operate as a registrar in the .com top level domain.

Talking .New on This Week in Google

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 11/01/2018 - 18:16

I had a short cameo on TWiG yesterday to discuss .New.

I had an unexpected cameo on This Week in Google yesterday to talk about how Google is using the .New top level domain.

If you missed it, Google has created shortcuts using the .new domain that create documents within Google’s apps. For example, type doc.new and it will open a new Google Doc.

This video is set to start playing at the moment I discussed this on the show yesterday:

.Com winners and losers, and Google Domains’ odd practice

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 11/01/2018 - 16:01

You still can’t register a domain for more than one year at Google Domains.

ICANN has published the latest official data from Verisign (NASDAQ:VRSN) about the .com registry. This registrar-by-registrar report covers July 2018.

While reviewing the data I was surprised to see something about Google Domains. Even after all of these years and the growing success of its registrar, Google Domains still doesn’t allow initial registrations for more than one year. You can renew domains for multiple years at a time, but all initial registrations are limited to one year.

Registrars love multi-year registrations, so I’m baffled why Google Domains doesn’t offer them.

Anyhow, on to the rankings. Here’s how registrars did in terms of new .com registrations:

1. GoDaddy.com* (NYSE: GDDY) 916,032 (866,819 in June)
2. HiChina Zhicheng Technology Ltd. 237,296 (203,536)
3. Tucows** (NASDAQ:TCX) 212,279 (192,056)
4. Xin Net Technology Corporation 129,492 (132,636)
5. Endurance+ (NASDAQ: EIGI) 127,916 (117,369)
6. NameSilo 127,451 (105,228)
7. NameCheap Inc. 124,011 (117,964)
8. Web.com++ 93,535 (96,339)
9. Google Inc. 94,033 (89,914)
10. West.cn 59,781 (not in top 10)

Here’s the leaderboard of the top registrars in terms of total .com registrations as of the end of July 2018:

1. GoDaddy* 48,659,723 (48,452,314 in June)
2. Tucows** 12,834,441 (12,835,741)
3. Endurance+ 7,411,874 (7,500,686)
4. Web.com++ 6,721,550 (6,737,824)
5. HiChina 5,683,428 (5,527,250)
6. Namecheap 4,312,430 (4,284,760)
7. 1&1 3716477 (3,731,057)
8. Xin Net Technology Corporation 2,260,541 (2,172,780)
9. GMO 2,011,266 (2,035,462)
10. Google 1,840,869 (1,782,920)

Many domain companies have multiple accreditations and I’ve tried to capture the largest ones. See the notes below.

* Includes GoDaddy and Wild West Domains
** Includes Tucows and Enom
+ Includes PDR, Domain.com, FastDomain and Bigrock. There are other Endurance registrars, but these are the biggest.
++ Includes Network Solutions and Register.com

End user domain sales led by a .Space domain name

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 11/01/2018 - 14:09

A UK training provider, a travel site for Equatorial Guinea and a cryptocurrency bought domain names last week.

GDPR has made it more difficult to uncover end user domain name sales. But searching for sold domains that already resolve, as well as using what’s left of Whois, helps uncover some of them.

This week’s top sales at Sedo include some interesting end-user prospects. The top .com sale, Kiaro.com could be used for a an inkjet label printer. Also, take a look at Air.Space, which set a record for the highest publicly-reported .space sale to date according to Namebio…by a long shot. Sedo tells me the domain sold through the SedoMLS Channel.

Here are some of the end user sales at Sedo this past week, and you can view previous weeks’ lists here.

Air.Space $17,500 – This is in development with the title “Make friends around live 3D entertainment.” Will it be some sort of AR/VR social network?

Kiaro.com $15,000 – The top .com sale of the week has a private Whois record. When you Google this term the main thing that comes up is a label printer called Kiaro.

TapTax.com $5,000 – This domain is still in escrow. However, TAP stands for Taxpayer Access Point. It could also be for general tax filing software with “tap” referring to tapping a screen or app.

AAL.co.uk £4,250 – The new site for Apprentice Assessments Limited, a private training provider in the UK.

P-Care.com €3,900 – This Whois record changed to Schaefges Brothers, Inc. out of Wheeling, Illinois who handle Pool and Aquatic Complex construction projects. It’s now in the name of a web design company. P-Care would make sense for a pool company.

4k.de €3,100 – Forwards to 4kfilme.de or “4k movies”, 4k is an Ultra HD standard. This German site features news about 4k/UHD, movies, Hi-Fi and audio technologies and trends. A great purchase of a shorter 2-character domain name in this popular ccTLD.

GuineaEcuatorial.com €2,600 – Resolving to a site in Spanish for Equatorial Guinea, a Central African country.

An-Deiner-Seite.de €2,500 – Purchased by the Germany Marketing Communications firm ΛMΛRCOM. This could be for one of their clients for an upcoming campaign, An-Deiner-Seite translates to “by your side”.

BitcoinDiamond.org $2,500 – The domain forwards to btcd.io, a website for a cryptocurrency called Bitcoin Diamond.

Run365.com $2,500 – When you Google the name of the registrant, you see lots of photos of him running marathons. So like the name suggests, this will be a site about running.

TheZoo.org $2,000 – Forwards to WhosWhointheZoo.com, a novelty gift site based in Canada.
