RealtyPRO Network tries reverse domain name hijacking

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 03/30/2021 - 15:15

Florida company tries to upgrade its domain through dead-on-arrival cybersquatting dispute.

Daniel Biro and RealtyPRO Network, Inc have been found to have engaged in reverse domain name hijacking over the domain name RealtyPro.com.

The company uses the domain name RealtyProNetwork.com. It obtained a trademark for Realty Pro in 2020 but claimed to have begun working on its business in 2010. It’s no matter; the owner of the domain name registered it in the 1990s, so it’s not a case of cybersquatting.

Biro attempted to acquire the domain name multiple times but was rebuffed by the domain name’s owner. So he filed an unwinnable UDRP.

National Arbitration Forum panelist Gerald Levine noted that it’s a panelist’s discretion to consider reverse domain name hijacking even if the Respondent doesn’t request it. In this case, he nearly gave a pass to Biro and RealtyPro because they were not represented by counsel. But he noted that Biro’s attempts to first purchase the domain before filing a UDRP counted against him.

“It would not have been exhausting to learn from a modicum of research that initiating a UDRP proceeding under these circumstances fits the definition of a Plan B scheme to deprive Respondent of his property,” he wrote.

Levine continued:

Whether this conduct alone deserves sanction teeters on the line except for one other fact, namely that Complainant chose not to seek legal advice although he introduces himself with the statement that he “may later choose to utilize his attorneys.” It is regrettable that Complainant proceeded without “utilize[ing]” his attorneys because had he consulted them (and assuming they are more informed than he) they would have told him that he could not possibly succeed on his complaint.

The panelist stated that, for these reasons, the Complainant cannot escape sanction and found them to have brought the case in bad faith.

End user domain sales at GoDaddy up to $350k

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 03/29/2021 - 18:08

Startups and big names bought domain names on the aftermarket.

Bodo.com was one of GoDaddy’s top aftermarket domain sales from November.

GoDaddy released its latest top aftermarket domain sales list. Keep in mind that GoDaddy doesn’t publicly disclose all of its top sales. The sales are from November so a good number of them have already been developed. Here are the domains and who bought them.

exclusive.com $350,000 – Exclusive.com will be a new platform for creators to sell content. A coming soon page states, “Your own Exclusive.com payment page. Sell, deliver and track your exclusive content and receive payments within a minute. Payments to the creator!”

bodo.com $200,000 – Bodo lets you buy and gift experiences like sky diving, horseback riding, and flying. It’s based in Istanbul.

https[.]com $197,000 – I wonder if this domain gets a lot of type-in traffic. Right now, it has a zero click lander that’s sending some visitors to a page that misleads them to download a browser plugin.

linktree.com $138,000 – LinkTree is a service people use to provide one link on bios that links to all of their other social accounts, sites, etc. Think of it like .Tel was meant to be, except using an easy-to-use hosted solution. The company uses LinkTr.ee for its site. It just raised $45 million.

clearstreet.com $125,000 – Clear Street is a prime brokerage service provider for trading equities and options.

hairplus.com $110,000 – The domain doesn’t resolve. The Whois record shows a buyer in California.

along.org $107,217 – Yes, that’s a .org for six figures! Gradient Learning, a non-profit, is launching Along to help teachers check in with students, whether they are learning remotely or in the classroom.

wingman.com $100,000 – Wingman claims it’s a security-minded messaging app. Ironically, it doesn’t have an SSL certificate on its site yet. (To be fair, it hasn’t launched yet.)

oder.com $100,000 – Note the spelling. It’s not odor. Maybe it’s a company named after the Oder river in Europe? The domain has Whois privacy.

security365.com $80,000 – Softcamp, a Korean technology company, offers cloud security solutions under the name Security 365.

aleader.com $68,500 – Whois shows someone in China.

bestmade.com $60,000 – Duluth Trading acquired this domain for its Best Made brand.

bright.org $60,000 – Data collection infrastructure company Luminati Networks Ltd changed its name to Bright Data and uses the domain BrightData.com. It does not own Bright.com.

handicraft.com $60,000 – Prym Consumer USA Inc is a manufacturer and distributor of sewing, quilting, and craft-related notions. Handicraft is a dictionary term for making decorative objects by hand.

wowlondon.com $57,500 – Wow Cosmetic Ltd, a cosmetics company in Israel, bought this domain for its website.

aqueous.com $57,500 – A company in California bought this domain. It’s a dictionary word for things made of water. Seems like it would be difficult to spell.

tallgrass.com $57,000 – Tallgrass Energy is an energy and infrastructure company.

goboo.com $55,000 – Goboo is a Chinese electronics company.

al-islam.com $45,211 – The domain forward to a Google form that references Mocco Company, a company still in development.

growth.ai $45,000 – This domain leads to a coming soon page. It has a private Whois record.

IT company tries reverse domain name hijacking ITDC.com

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 03/29/2021 - 17:35

Counsel for domain owner warned Complainant last year that a UDRP filing would likely result in a reverse domain name hijacking decision.

A three-member World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) panel has found HBA Holding LLC guilty of reverse domain name hijacking for the domain ITDC.

It’s not entirely clear the connection between HBA Holding and IT Data Consulting, LLC, the company from which HBA Holding says it was assigned a trademark for ITDC. IT Data Consulting uses the domain name IT-DC.com.

Internet Tool & Die Company owns ITDC.com. It’s a technology company making a play on the offline world of Tool & Die companies, which create the building blocks of machines used in manufacturing. The company creates software for managing IP addresses, a building block of the internet. It acquired the domain name ITDC.com for about $15,000 in November 2018.

The WIPO panel determined that HBA Holding withheld critical information from its complaint. HBA Holding said that it sent a demand letter to the Respondent in 2019, but didn’t mention that the Respondent immediately replied to that letter disputing the Complainant’s claims. An attorney for the Respondent said that a UDRP filing would likely result in a reverse domain name hijacking decision.

The panel also called out the Complainant for hypocrisy. The Complainant said that the domain owner acted in bad faith by using Whois privacy, but IT Data Consulting also uses it for its domain!

Perhaps the most appalling part of the case is that the Complainant claimed that a business by the Respondent’s name didn’t exist at the address it uses. It made this claim even though it knew that the Respondent is a subsidiary of a business that was on the office door:

While Complainant could not find a listing for Respondent on an office door in the building whose address is used as the physical address of Respondent, the door of the alleged office, a picture of which was provided by Complainant, includes the name of Respondent’s parent company Denuo, Inc. What is notable is that Respondent in its March 8, 2019 letter specifically advised that Respondent was “a wholly-owned subsidiary of Denuo, Inc.” It thus seems surprising to the Panel that Complainant would now claim with certainty that Respondent does not exist and that its “sole reason for existence is to draw web traffic from Complainant” even though it found a listing for Respondent in the building directory and a sign on the door of Respondent’s alleged office for Respondent’s parent company Denuo, Inc., a company that is readily found in an Internet search.

In finding reverse domain name hijacking, the panel wrote:

After over 20 years of UDRP jurisprudence, Complainant clearly ought to have known that it could not succeed under any fair interpretation of the facts reasonably available prior to the filing of the Complaint and that basing its complaint on the barest of allegations without any supporting evidence on what is essentially a trademark infringement dispute was doomed to fail and an abuse of the UDRP process (WIPO Overview 3.0, section 4.16). As presciently predicted by Respondent’s counsel in his reply to the March 2019 demand letter, “a UDRP filing under the circumstances presented here would likely result in a reverse domain name hijacking finding against your client.”

Brown Patent Law, PLLC represented the Complainant in its reverse domain name hijacking case. Hyland Law PLLC represented the Respondent.

CandyShop.com sells for six figures

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 03/26/2021 - 16:22

Six figure domain name sales keep rolling in.

Domain name investor Greg Ricks has struck with another six figure domain sale: CandyShop.com.

Ricks told Domain Name Wire he just sold the domain for $112,125.

Global Digital Media SA in France is the buyer. Right now, the domain resolves to a page with a graphic of a candy store with a stylized “Candy Shop” overlayed.

Earlier this month, Ricks reported the sale of cope.com for $138,000 and Felt.com for $74,750.

We’re about one-quarter of the way through 2021 and there have been 14 reported .com domain sales of $100,000 or more. Two non-.com domains have also broken the six-figure barrier this year: metaverse.io and porn .co.

Court rules France can keep France.com

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 03/25/2021 - 20:20

The French Republic used French courts to wrest the domain away from an American company.

A U.S. Court of Appeals has found in favor of The French Republic in a fight over France.com.

The United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit has delivered a blow to the former owner of France.com.

Jean-Noël Frydman registered France.com in 1994 and used it for many years to promote tourism in France. In 2014, Frydman’s company France.com, Inc. filed a lawsuit in Paris against a Dutch company alleging trademark infringement of France.com. The French Republic and its tourism agency, Atout France, intervened in the matter.

The French government managed to convince successive courts that the government — not someone in the U.S. — should own France.com. The government asserted the exclusive right to use the term “France” commercially, contending that under French law, the name “France” cannot be appropriated or used commercially by a private enterprise because doing so violates the French Republic’s exclusive right to its name and infringes on its sovereignty.

In 2018, the French government presented a copy of the Paris Court of Appeals decision over France.com to Web.com, and Web.com transferred the domain to it.

Transferring this domain, which was registered to a U.S. business, to France was a big blow that many in the domain industry viewed as unjust.

Frydman sued in U.S. court in 2018. The French government convinced the Court of Appeals (in a decision published today) that the government has sovereign immunity under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act. The court remanded the case back to the district court with instructions to dismiss the lawsuit.

You can listen to Frydman’s saga in this podcast interview from 2018.

Getting the best price on .com domains

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 03/24/2021 - 16:32

Some registrars offer consistently good deals on .com domains.

There’s a lot of competition at the registrar level for .com domain names. This intense competition leads to prices near the wholesale price that the registrar pays the registry (Verisign) for the domain.

Verisign currently charges a list price of $7.85 for .com registrations and renewals. This will increase to $8.39 on September 1, 2021.

But Verisign offers discounts to registrars for new .com registrations depending on things like volume, growth, and region. Sometimes, Verisign offers discounts for domains that are re-registered shortly after they expire. Registry discounts are why you often see prices for what appear to be below cost.

Many registrars offer special pricing for the first year. Prices revert to their standard pricing thereafter.

Others offer coupons for first-year registrations. I don’t like dealing with coupons because you spend a lot of time hunting them down and reading the fine print.

So, from the perspective of getting the best .com prices all of the time, here’s what I’ve found.

I see a handful of registrars that pass along first-year discounts so that domains are at or below the current wholesale price. Sav.com is the most consistent about this; its price for .com domain registrations has been $6.95 for a long time. This includes ICANN’s 18-cent fee. Dynadot often passes along the savings as well. Both registrars will charge you more to renew but the prices are still lower than most competitors.

NameBright also has consistently low prices on .com domains. It charges the wholesale cost (including the ICANN fee) of $8.03 per year if you pre-fund your account by bank wire or check. The nice thing is that this is also the renewal price. It’s rare for registrars to charge at-cost renewals. Of course, this price will increase when Verisign increases prices later this year.

You also need to consider any extras that you usually opt for when registering domains. Most domain investors choose to keep their Whois information public, but it’s worth noting that some registrars charge for privacy and others don’t. NameBright gives domain privacy free for the first year but it’s $2.95 per year after that.

I personally register most of my domains at GoDaddy. It charges $8.47 per year including the ICANN fee if you opt for the Domain Discount Club, which is currently $240 per year. (Customers who bought this early pay only$120 per year.) I don’t love the idea of having memberships to get discounts but I understand why GoDaddy does this in the context of its user base.

One of the reasons I register at GoDaddy is because it provides additional transfer-out security to people with large portfolios and a dedicated account manager. It’s difficult to place a value on this but it’s a reminder to consider the entire package when selecting a registrar.

Of course, you should never select a registrar based on price alone. Make sure they have good customer service and a user-friendly account management interface.

Feel free to share other registrars that consistently have good prices on .com domains.

A three word domain (with a contraction!) that’s easy to remember

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 03/23/2021 - 16:34

This ad was impossible to forget even though it uses a three word domain.

I’ve had quite a bit of luck over the years selling three word .com domains. The trick is to find catchy phrases that are easy to remember.

Here’s an example of a three word domain that’s easy to remember. Last night I watched the St. Louis Blues vs. Las Vegas Golden Knights hockey game. An ad wrapped around the glass consisted solely of a domain name and was impossible to miss: DontBeBroke .com.

Dollar Loan Center uses the domain name to pitch people on loans that will likely cause them to eventually go broke.

I usually don’t acquire three word domains with contractions because there are no apostrophes in domain names, but I think most people understand this now and won’t try to type in an apostrophe when going to the website.

It looks like Dollar Loan Center uses this domain in lots of advertising so it can’t directly correlate the hockey game advertising to traffic, although it might see an uptick during games. It’s also a domain that people will recall later on when they’re in a bind and need some cash.

Oath (Yahoo) gets patent for integrated domain + trademark search

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 03/23/2021 - 15:47

Idea could help people register a domain and trademark at the same time.

A diagram from Oath’s patent.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted patent number 10,956,516 (pdf) to Oath Inc. (Yahoo) for “Collectively performing domain searches and trademark searches.”

The patent describes a system for searching for domains and trademarks at the same time. It appears that Oath’s primary purpose is for a domain search that can cross-sell trademark registration to the registrant. For example, the system will pitch registering a trademark for “example” to someone who registered the domain example.com. (Presumably, they’d need to file an intent-to-use trademark application if they are registering a domain for a new business.)

This idea could also be used to warn registrants that a domain they are registering is similar to a trademark.

I ran a quick search at Yahoo Domains and didn’t see this idea implemented, although it could be applied after you finish registering the domain.

Oath applied for the patent in June 2018 and it was granted today.

Vote to shake up Nominet passes

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 03/22/2021 - 22:09

Nominet members kick out five board members.

Four of Nominet’s board members have been removed as a result of voting at an Extraordinary General Meeting today. The initiative was to remove five board members, but one of those members, now-former Nominet CEO Russel Haworth, resigned ahead of the vote.

52.74% of the vote was cast in favor of the resolution and there was 53.5% turnout for the vote.

Organizers also requested that two named board members be added to the slate, but Nominet did not put that to a vote.

The grassroots initiative was started by people who felt that Nominet had strayed too far from its original mission of administering the .UK namespace. The non-profit expanded its business lines into security, spectrum, and other unrelated fields. Those in favor wanted to see the company go back to operating .UK and keeping operations lean, donating profits to charity.

In his resignation statement, Haworth stated “We sought to build Nominet into an international tech business, growing beyond our core registry business, and we made great business.”

Why a non-profit domain name registry would want to become an international tech business is a bit of a head-scratcher. As I posited last week, this is what happens when you hire people who want to turn something boring into something interesting.

Now the question is how the remainder of the board will make changes. In a statement today, it declared, “The board acknowledges that members have made a clear statement with today’s vote and will be working on a strategic change in direction.”

A different domain model with Arno Vis – DNW Podcast #330

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 03/22/2021 - 15:30

Openprovider founder Arno Vis discusses his domain registrar’s membership model.

Most domain name registrars charge their customers a markup over whatever the registry charges them. Openprovider has a different business model, which founder Arno Vis compares to Costco. Customers pay a membership fee and then get domains at cost. On today’s show, Vis explains the model and how his company uses automation to keep costs low.

BrandBucket adds lease-to-own option

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 03/19/2021 - 16:44

Marketplace will let buyers pay for domains over 12 months.

Brandable domain name marketplace BrandBucket is joining a growing number of marketplaces that will let buyers pay off domain purchases over time.

Sellers will be able to opt in to the new system that gives buyers the option of paying a domain name off over 12 months.

Much like DAN.com’s domain financing program, BrandBucket charges additional fees to the buyer if they choose to pay for the domain over time instead of upfront. It adds a 20% surcharge for domains up to $9,995, 15% up to 49,995, and 10% for domains over that threshold. It also frontloads 5% of the total service fees with the first payment.

BrandBucket will split those additional fees 50/50 with the seller. Sellers can withdraw the payments each month.

Initially, lease-to-own will only be available for domains held at GoDaddy and NameSilo.

Sellers can opt-in by going to the Sales Settings area of their accounts.

The band split. Two decades later, a battle for the domain

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 03/18/2021 - 18:39

Reverse domain name hijacking in dispute over Cro-Mags.com.

Parris Mayhew and Harley Flanagan produced the album Revenge in 2000. Flanagan is trying to get the domain Cro-Mags.com.

A World Intellectual Property Organization panel has determined that a cybersquatting dispute over the domain name cro-mags.com was filed in abuse of the policy.

Savoia NYC, an entity associated with musician Harley Flanagan, filed the dispute in an attempt to get the domain name. The domain is registered to Parris Mayhew who, along with Flanagan, made up the band Cro-Mags at the turn of the century. The pair put out an album called Revenge in 2000.

Mayhew was co-owner of an entity with Flanagan that held a trademark for Cro-Mags when he registered the domain name in 1999. So the domain was clearly not registered in bad faith.

Savoia made an argument for retroactive bad faith, which didn’t fly with the panel. Panelist Frederick Abbott noted that the Complainant left out key details about the history between Flanagan and Mayhew when it filed the case. In finding reverse domain name hijacking, Abbott wrote:

The Panel finds it difficult to believe that Complainant and its counsel thought they could succeed in this proceeding if Respondent responded. Respondent did respond. While Complainant’s lapse in providing evidence in theory might have resulted from lack of awareness of underlying facts, those facts should have been readily apparent from adequate preparation and investigation. In addition, there is no apparent excuse for proposing a legal theory that is unsupported by UDRP precedent.

Tucows throws weight behind Nominet (.UK) initiative

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 03/18/2021 - 16:53

Tucows is the largest registrar to date to support the initiative.

Tucows, the largest wholesale domain name registrar, has said it will vote in favor of an initiative to replace five of Nominet’s board members. Nominet is a non-profit that runs the .UK country code domain name.

The registrar joins Namecheap, Gandi and many other registrars and hosting companies that will vote for change at the Extraordinary General Meeting on March 22.

The initiative seeks to refocus Nominet on running .UK rather than using profits to invest in other lines of business. I wrote about the initiative and its goals earlier this week.

In a blog post, Tucows threw cold water on Nominet CEO Russell Haworth’s claim that voting for the initiative would damage Nominet’s stability and reputation. Instead, it argues that refocusing the non-profit .UK would improve its stability. Writing about country code domain operators in general, Ashley La Bolle, Director of Domains at Tucows, stated, “The registry should have a narrow and focused mandate, deliver a stable and secure service, operate in a risk-averse manner, and manage costs appropriately.”

Votes will be apportioned based on the total number of .UK domains under management of those who vote, although each voter is capped at 3% of the total. Tucows will hit that cap with about 380,000 .UK domains under management.

New TLD company Radix posts $28 million revenue in 2020

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 03/18/2021 - 16:15

Revenue and profit surged during 2020.

New top level domain name company Radix grossed $28 million in revenue in 2020, the company announced. That’s up 31% over 2019 numbers and is a better topline growth rate than the 26% growth between 2018 and 2019. These numbers are net of all discounts and rebates.

Net profit was up 36% over 2019. It’s a healthy clip, although down from the company’s stellar 54% growth in profits in 2019 vs. 2018. (The company did not disclose the actual dollar amount.)

Here’s the breakdown of revenue contribution:

  • 20% standard registrations
  • 64% standard renewals
  • 16% premium, of which 54% was renewal revenue

Radix operates ten new top level domains: .online, .store, .tech, .website, .space, .press, .site, .host, .fun, and .uno.

Comparing expired domain name platforms

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 03/18/2021 - 13:58

A look at the three big expired domain platforms.

The majority of domain names I acquire are expiring domain names sold on GoDaddy, DropCatch, and NameJet/SnapNames. Each platform has something going for it, but all have some drawbacks as well.

This post digs into the three platforms and their pluses and minuses. Please note that, for this post, I’m focusing only on expired domain inventory, not domainer-to-domainer inventory that can be listed on some of these platforms.

GoDaddy

GoDaddy auctions off the largest amount of direct transfer domain inventory, including that from all of GoDaddy’s brands, Newfold Digital’s Endurance brands, and Enom/Tucows, among others. “Direct transfer” means that the domains are sold to the new owner without going through the registry’s complete deletion cycle.

This type of inventory has benefits compared to dropped inventory that goes through the complete expiration cycle. First, direct-transfer domains retain their original registration date in Whois. Second, GoDaddy’s deals with other registrars guarantee that the inventory goes through its system, so you don’t have to backorder the domain at multiple expired domain platforms.

The other nice thing about GoDaddy is that all of the domains you win are inserted into your GoDaddy account. Even if the domain is at Enom or Public Domain Registry, they all show up in a single account. That makes them easier to manage.

GoDaddy also has a pretty good (if not buggy) app for searching and bidding. It’s nice to get alerts on your phone when an auction is closing or you are outbid, and to be able to respond immediately.

There are some drawbacks, though. One common complaint is never receiving domains you win. GoDaddy auctions off domains before the deadlines that some partner registrars offer their customers to renew or transfer the domains. This means that an auction you win might be canceled before you receive the domain. You’ll receive an automatic refund but it’s still annoying. (This shouldn’t happen on domains at GoDaddy registrars because of the timing of its auctions compared to the renewal/transfer deadlines for customers.)

It’s also annoying that you have to wait to receive the domains you win. One understandable reason is that GoDaddy has to transfer domains from other registrars to GoDaddy, but there’s also a delay on domains that are registered at GoDaddy.

Another annoyance is the seemingly neverending technical bugs on GoDaddy’s platform.

Oh, and people complain a lot about bidders using the API to place last-minute bids. GoDaddy recently changed its closeout pricing structure in response to complaints about snapping domains the moment an auction ends with no bids. Time will tell if it’s helping everyday domain investors get any good closeout domains.

DropCatch

The DropCatch platform specializes in catching domains that go through pending delete status. DropCatch has over 1,000 registrars in its stable that it uses to snap up domains the moment they drop.

One of the best things about DropCatch is that all of the domains you win are instantly transferred into your NameBright registrar account the moment you pay for them. There’s no waiting and they’re all in a single account.

On the downside, NameBright defaults to not using Whois privacy on the domains you win at DropCatch. This means your phone will ring off the hook and your inbox will be flooded with spam from people pitching you on website and app development. There’s a simple way to fix this, though.

NameBright also isn’t a member of AfternicDLS, so you can’t quickly list your domains on the Fast Transfer system.

Also, as fully deleted domains, you don’t retain the original registration date in Whois.

Keep in mind that inventory that goes through the full delete cycle that is registered at a registrar participating in direct transfer programs with GoDaddy or NameJet/SnapNames goes there first, so you’re catching the scraps.

Some people also complain about the backordering process. At NameJet/SnapNames, only people who order a domain in advance can participate in the domain’s ensuing auction. DropCatch lets anyone bid, so other domain investors benefit from your hard work identifying domains.

NameJet/SnapNames

Web.com owns NameJet and SnapNames, and Web.com was recently rolled into Endurance International Group to form Newfold Digital. I have to assume that combining NameJet and SnapNames into one modern platform is in the works. Then again, since Endurance already sends its inventory to GoDaddy, will the company decide to scrap the platforms altogether? I hope not, as competition is good in this industry.

The platforms have direct transfer inventory and also compete for pending delete dropped domains. The inventory is the same on both platforms. Web.com owns two of the oldest registrars, Network Solutions and Register.com, where the bulk of its good inventory comes from. This inventory is, frankly, the main thing NameJet and SnapNames have going for them.

With direct transfers, you also get to keep the original registration date in Whois.

Bidders also appreciate that only people who backorder a domain get to participate in auctions.

On the downside, the technology is horrible. NameJet’s app stopped alerting bidders about being outbid years ago. SnapNames is riddled with technical issues.

And when you win a domain, prepare for it to show up in some random domain registrar account. Having to consolidate domains you win is perhaps the biggest frustration with these platforms.

Network Solutions and Register.com don’t obscure Whois by default, so you can expect to get lots of spam and phone calls.

Other options

These aren’t the only options for catching expired domains. Dynadot has its own auction platform and there can be good buys because the auctions don’t get as much attention. Sav has become a popular resource for acquiring dropped .io and .co domains, and it only charges the standard domain registration fee for domains you win. Park.io is popular for ccTLDs. Sedo offers the first crack at some expiring IONOS domains.

The future

The expired domain game has changed a lot over the past 25 years and will likely change again in the future. For example, Verisign might offer access pools to catch dropped domains so that drop catchers don’t have to create a thousand registrars.

The biggest question right now is what happens to NameJet and SnapNames given the merger into Newfold Digital. I hope that Newfold decides to invest in these platforms rather than shutting them down. We need competition in the expired domain business.

GoDaddy to remove locks on Brent Oxley’s domains, changes policy

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 03/17/2021 - 21:26

Company will no longer indiscriminately lock domains when they are subject to a legal challenge.

GoDaddy is removing domain locks on a set of valuable domain names owned by Brent Oxley and changing its policy going forward.

Oxley’s valuable domains, including Piano.com, Message.com and Distribute.com, were locked after domain investor Puneet Agarwal filed a lawsuit in India in 2019. Agarwal helped Oxley acquire some domain names, and alleges that he is owed commission on some of them.

Oxley said publicly that he hasn’t been served in the lawsuit and alleges that Agarwal filed the lawsuit as a way to hold his domains hostage in order to extract payments from Oxley.

GoDaddy’s common practice for many years has been to lock domain names when it is notified that they are subject to a lawsuit or other legal challenge.

While GoDaddy’s locking policy might make sense in some circumstances, it seems that it was being abused in this case. Domain names should not be locked in perpetuity due to a lawsuit.

Pressure built on GoDaddy to remove the locks after James Iles wrote about the issue.

In a statement today, GoDaddy GM & VP of Aftermarket Paul Nicks stated:

As we reviewed our policies and procedures, our goal was to do what’s right for our domain investors and to protect the industry from domain theft. Your domain names need to be accessible and sellable, we get it. To be clear, this isn’t just about Brent’s issue, it’s about the long-term health of the aftermarket. The aftermarket has changed in the last 20 years, and our long-standing policy needed to address these changes.

Frankly, we needed to evolve with the times. After many discussions with outside experts, lawyers, and trade groups, we believe we have found the right balance. The new solution allows domain investing businesses to proceed while having robust anti-theft measures.

Moving forward, when we are notified of a legal dispute between two parties, we will not lock domains by default as we had previously done. We will review each notification and reserve the right to impose a 30-day interim hold, in part to help protect against improper domain flight, until a court order is obtained by the complainant. If a court order has not been received within 30 days of implementing a hold, then we will remove the hold.

While we can’t guarantee we can stop all abuse of our system, we will use best efforts and multiple layers of review to root out potential bad actors.

As this rolls out, please let me know if you hear of any issue the new policy is raising. We’ll continue to listen to your feedback and review our policies to ensure they do what’s right for the domain investor community, while still maintaining antitheft practices.

How to default your DropCatch wins to Whois privacy

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 03/17/2021 - 17:58

Tired of telemarketing and spam? Here’s how to fix it.

DropCatch is a great platform for capturing expired domain names that go through the complete registry deletion process.

There is one major annoyance, however: NameBright, where all of your purchased domains end up, doesn’t obscure Whois information by default. Since all of the domains you win at DropCatch appear to be new registrations, you’ll be flooded with emails and phone calls pitching you on web and app design services for the domains you win.

Fortunately, there’s a solution that enables you to default all of your DropCatch wins to Whois privacy. Here’s how to do it.

After logging into your account, select “My Account” and “Categories”:

Next, look for “DropCatch” in the list and click “Settings” in the corresponding row:

Then, scroll down to the “Privacy Protection” box and click to enable it by default for the category. (You can also do other nifty things here, like automatically set up the nameservers for domains you win.)

Note that NameBright charges $2.95 per year for Whois privacy but the first year is free. So you’ll want to transfer your domains out within a year or understand that you’ll be billed extra for keeping privacy.

Also, domain investors need a way for potential buyers to contact them, so make sure your domain points to a landing page with contact capabilities.
