PIR (.Org) slashes registry fee to Afilias in half to $18 million

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 10/28/2019 - 12:46

Non-profit’s renegotiated contract includes steep reduction in fees.

Public Interest Registry (PIR), the non-profit organization that operates the .org top level domain name, cut the fee it pays its backend technical registry provider by half in 2018.

The company paid Afilias $18.1 million in 2018, down from $37.8 million in 2017.

That’s according to the company’s latest Form 990 tax return filed with the Internal Revenue Service.

Afilias has provided the registry services for PIR since .org was awarded to PIR in 2002. PIR put the technical contract out to bid in 2016. It received 20 bids but decided to stick with Afilias.

It will be interesting to see if the payment amount changes in future years.

With about 10 million domains in the zone, PIR is paying less than $2.00 per domain per year.

Overall, PIR grossed $93.3 million in 2018, down from $94.8 million in the year prior. But the difference is investment income; revenue from the registry business was up year-over-year.

PIR handed $2.65M over to ICANN. It also paid $1.15 million to GoDaddy to market .org.

Internet Society, the beneficiary of PIR’s efforts, received $48.7 million.

ICANN is about to give Verisign its .com price increases

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 10/25/2019 - 12:14

Verisign CEO’s comments suggest price increases are on the way.

Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) held its quarterly investor call yesterday, and it seems that ICANN is about to give Verisign the price increases it wants for .com.

The U.S. Department of Commerce updated its agreement with Verisign last year, allowing it to raise .com prices by up to 7% in four of six years. However, this is only if ICANN agrees to allow the increases.

On the investor call yesterday, Verisign CEO James Bidzos said:

We believe these discussions with ICANN are nearly complete. While it will be inappropriate at this time to provide more details, I can say that we were satisfied with the results so far. As noted, this is an ICANN process and we expect that before long ICANN will be publishing for public comment the documents we have been discussing.

Verisign won’t be satisfied without the full increases.

And while the updated contract will go out for public comment, ICANN is likely to ignore any comments opposed to the price increases. That’s what it did when it unilaterally decided to remove price caps on .org and .biz domain names.

ICANN says it wants to get out of the price-regulating business, so it’s logical to assume it will defer to the U.S. government on .com pricing.

Revenues tick up at Verisign as it adds 1.27 million domains

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 10/24/2019 - 20:21

Profits grow even faster at .com domain name registry.

Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) reported earnings today after the market close.

Revenue for the third quarter was $308.421 million, up slightly from $305.777 million in the same quarter of 2018.

It kept its costs down, however, so its operating income jumped from $194.997 million to $205.616 million.

The total base of registered .com and .net domains increased 3.8% year-over-year. During the quarter, a net 1.27 million .com and .net domains were added after accounting for deletions. That brings the total to 157.4 million domains.

9.9 million .com/.net domains were registered during the quarter, up from 9.5 million in the same quarter last year.

GoDaddy “fixes” auction login page issue

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 10/24/2019 - 16:50

You no longer have to log in twice at GoDaddy Auctions.

Logging in at GoDaddy Auctions no longer requires entering credentials twice.

GoDaddy has released a fix to the login issue on GoDaddy Auctions.

It’s more of a hack, really. But it helps.

Previously, when you clicked the “log in” button on GoDaddy Auctions, you entered your username and password, only to then be sent to the GoDaddy website where you had to enter the information again.

Now, when you click the log in button on GoDaddy Auctions, you’ll get a pop up in which you have to click a button that takes you to the GoDaddy login page. You will be returned to the auctions site after logging in on the GoDaddy site.

In other words, you now only have to enter your credentials once.

Paul Nicks, VP of Aftermarket at GoDaddy, explained the issue on the DNW Podcast that will be released on Monday. Essentially, the system is verifying GoDaddy Auctions membership before allowing you to log in.

Now, Shane Cultra will no longer have such a complicated experience logging in:

Cybersquatting cases at WIPO trending up in 2019

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 10/24/2019 - 16:32

Numbers up slightly so far this year, but still represent a very small subset of domains.

Number of cases filed at WIPO through Q3 of each year.

The caseload of cybersquatting disputes at World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is trending upward so far in 2019.

2,723 cases were filed during the first three quarters of 2019, according to data on WIPO’s website. There were only 2,592 filed during this same period last year.

The chart above shows the total caseload during Q1-Q3 of each of the past five years. With the exception of 2016-2017, the number of filed cases has increased during the first three quarters of the year.

WIPO is just one of the organizations that handles cybersquatting disputes under UDRP, but it is the largest.

The total number of domains at issue is very small compared to all registered domains.

For example, through the latest update, 3,430 .com domains have been the subject of UDRP this year. There are 144 million registered .com domains, so only one in 42,000 .com domains have been the subject of a UDRP this year.

Who bought domains at Uniregistry this past week

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 10/24/2019 - 13:02

Big three-letter eko.com sale was just one of many sales.

Solar Foods has been using the domain SolarFoods.fi. It bought SolarFoods.com.

Uniregistry’s sale of Eko.com smashed the charts this week, but it wasn’t the only notable sale the company made.

I reviewed the company’s top 20 sales to figure out who bought domains. In many cases, I don’t know because the domain doesn’t resolve to a developed site and Whois information is obscured. Uniregistry Whois often only provides a state/province and country for the domain owner, and I’ve noted it when that’s the case.

Let’s take a look.

1. eko.com $1,500,000 – A video content company that uses HelloEko.com bought the domain.

2. 7732.com $49,500 – Probably a domain investor.

3. practicemanagment.com $14,985 – The Capital Group Companies, Inc., a financial services company with nearly $2 billion under management.

4. ground.org $11,000 – Whois is under privacy and site goes to a register parking page. Seems like an end user purchase here.

5. alfas.com $10,000 – The buyer is in Tokyo, according to the Whois.

6. ratefinder.com $9,800 – Mortgage rates? Tax rates? Shipping rates? I’m not sure, but Whois shows the buyer is someone in Texas. Nice domain name.

7. solarfoods.com $8,500 – Solar Foods Oy is a Finish company creating a protein. It uses the domain SolarFoods.fi.

8. realwin.com $7,500 – The buyer is in Latvia.

9. schoolcloud.co.uk $7,475 – The Nominet Whois record doesn’t tell us much.

10. steeltrader.com $7,000 – Technology & Engineering Services in Uruguay.

11. talabani.com $6,000 – Whois is for someone in Maryland. The domain still resolves to a Uniregistry lander.

12. banfu.com $5,500 – Banfu is a town in China. Whois shows the buyer is in China.

13. kicksnation.com $5,500 – Kicks Nation will be a site to buy sneakers.

14. foldingknives.com $5,000 – It’s under Whois privacy and still resolves to a Uniregistry lander.

15. ghid.com $5,000 – Hmm. Buyer is in Pennsylvania but I’m not sure who it is.

16. zipextractor.com $5,000 – The company that uses ZipExtractor.app bought this domain.

17. streetracing.com $5,000 – Whois says the buyer is in Florida.

18. theadventurer.com $3,500 – Someone in Ontario, Canada.

19. nirvana.ca $3,500 – Nirvana homes in Canada.

20. bedbugbites.com $3,000 – Someone in Canada.

14 three-letter .com domains in GreatDomains auction

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 10/23/2019 - 17:07

Lots of short domains available in domain name auction.

Sedo’s current GreatDomains auction has a high number of three-letter .com domain names on offer.

14 three-letter domains are available, with reserves ranging from under $5,000 to as much as $100,000.

Two of the domains have met their reserves: VNY.com (bidding is at $10,100) and VQF.com (bidding is at $6,766).

The full list including reserve range is below:

  • PCE.com $50k-$100k
  • OLI.com $50k-$100k
  • EFM.com $25k-$50k
  • BJR.com $25k-$50k
  • HIJ.com $25k-$50k
  • QOQ.com $25k-$50k
  • NUR.com $25k-$50k
  • NWT.com $25k-$50k
  • AQP.com $25k-$50k
  • ONL.com $25k-$50k
  • VNY.com reserve met
  • QSE.com $10k-$25k
  • VQF.com reserve met
  • QUK.com $10k-$25k

It’s worth noting that .ONL matches a new top level domain name. The registry pitches it as short for “online”.

Bidding concludes on Thursday, and verification is required to bid more than $10,000.

Amazon sues another alleged “get-rich-quick” scheme

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 10/23/2019 - 15:16

Company says defendants are infringing its trademarks to promote courses and memberships.

An image from Amazon’s lawsuit shows alleged infringement of its mark in order to promote services for selling on Amazon

Earlier this week, I wrote about Amazon suing people and companies that it says are violating its trademarks to sell courses on how to make money selling on Amazon.

The company is also suing another group for similar alleged actions.

Amazon filed suit (pdf) against Online Secrets, Inc., Michael Gazzola, Matthew Behdjou and other parties for trademark infringement.

The lawsuit alleges that the sellers have “have exploited Amazon’s brand to perpetrate a widespread get-rich-quick scheme that revolves around seeking to fake, and inducing others to fake, product reviews, and other dishonest techniques that violate Amazon’s third-party seller agreements. Through deceptive marketing, Defendants use high pressure sales tactics to swindle Amazon third-party sellers (or prospective sellers) into purchasing Defendants’ services.”

Some of the domains allegedly used by defendants include amazonsecretsfunnels(.)com, amazontrainingapplication(.)com and amazonsellinghacks(.)com.

According to Amazon, part of the defendants’ program was to have members rate each others’ products after getting them for free or at heavy discounts, and to click “not helpful” next to negative reviews of their products.

Amazon says that the defendants are doing this while capitalizing on Amazon’s famous trademarks. An example of one of the defendant’s promotions is above.

14 recent end user domain name sales

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 10/23/2019 - 13:43

A site about fossil fuels, a credit union, and a training program for aspiring startup professionals bought domain names.

There was an interesting array of end users that bought domains this week at Sedo, including a purchase by the popular retail site, Rue La La.

Here’s a look at recent end users sales at Sedo. See prior end user lists here.

SentAI.com $29,999 – Aesir Media Group, a media company in Houston, acquired the domain. It is currently forwarding to an unrelated site; I believe the forward was created by the previous owner.

FossilFuel.com $9,000 – This site about fossil fuels such as petroleum and coal must be created by an advocacy group. Which one, it’s not clear yet. The site appears to still be under development.

CarFee.com $5,539 – The website is still in development, but it appears it will be a company that helps you get a good deal on a car purchase.

SSPO.com €5,000 – Purchased by Retail Convergence, the company behind popular e-commerce sites Rue La La and SmartBargains.com. Maybe for a new campaign or business line.

SB-IT.com $4,880 – Forwards to Schauenburg-Industrietechnik.com, a German industrial engineering firm specializing in molded parts, stamped parts and hose technology.

Interview.org $4,000 – Tradecraft, a company that offers an immersive training program for people who want to work in startups, acquired this domain. It currently forwards to Tradecraft.com.

MeinLifeCoach.de €2,500 – Forwards to Mailchi.mp/4deaf1a52db4/meinlifecoach, a website for a German life coach, Detlef D Soost. This formerly popular German dancer and choreographer has now transitioned into life coaching as well as nutrition and personal fitness training.

Kartenblog.de €2,500 – German blog in development about DIY birthday or wedding cards. Karten blog translates to “cards blog” in German.

MosquitoGone.com $2,477 – Purchased by Shepard Group, Inc., a commercial services contractor in Southern New England.

CreateStudio.com $2,400 – Video software company Vidello.

Promis-Inside.de €2,250 – Forwards to VIPFlash.de, a celebrity gossip website. Promis Inside translates to “celebrities inside” in German.

Eko.com domain name sells for $1.5 million

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 10/22/2019 - 17:32

Video company picks up short domain for big bucks.

Video storytelling company Eko has purchased the domain name Eko.com for $1.5 million. The deal was co-brokered between Uniregistry and Buy Domain Guide, LLC.

Eko has been using HelloEko.com for its website. Eko.com now forwards to HelloEko.com.

It’s a bit difficult to understand Eko’s business by viewing its website. It seems that it works with brands to create video content. We’re not talking commercials; its longer form video and content that hits the brand’s target audience. It also creates video production tools for creators.

Eko certainly has the money to upgrade its domain name. It recently inked a deal with Walmart in which the retailer will invest over $250 million to develop over 100 video series over the next three years.

Lonnie Borck Memorial Award voting ends Friday

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 10/21/2019 - 17:26

For the first time, ICA members can vote for the winner.

Lonnie Borck

Voting for the Lonnie Borck Memorial Award, issued by Internet Commerce Association (ICA), concludes this Friday.

The award honors the late domain investor Lonnie Borck, who passed away three years ago this month.

In the past, the award was given to those who worked to protect the rights of domain name registrants. For 2020, the award has a broader scope for people who have fostered a sense of community within the domain name industry.

Also, unlike in previous years, this year all Internet Commerce Association members can vote on the slate of nine nominees. I’m honored to be on the list.

Voting concludes Friday and the award will be made at NamesCon in Austin next January.

Amazon sues “get rich quick” Fulfilled by Amazon course seller

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 10/21/2019 - 15:18

Amazon says consumers think there’s a connection between FBA course seller and Amazon.

According to Amazon, the defendant’s logo on the right infringes on its trademarks.

Fulfilled by Amazon (FBA) businesses are big business for many product sellers. Just about anyone can list products for sale on Amazon and take advantage of its huge audience as well as fast fulfillment.

These days, it seems like there are more businesses selling you a course on how to make money with FBA than there are actual sellers using FBA. (Okay, that’s an exaggeration.)

Now, Amazon is suing (pdf) one of them that it alleges is infringing on its trademarks with logos that are very similar to its own.

The company filed its suit against Prime Global Source, LLC, Creating Wealth International, LLC, and several other companies it believes may be connected.

Amazon alleges that the defendants “persuade unwitting entrepreneurs to spend thousands of dollars on seminars and training programs of little, if any, value” and “By the time that students realize they have been taken advantage of, the limited refund period has expired and Defendants refuse further communication.”

The case is for trademark infringement, and Amazon alleges that the defendants are “misleading consumers into believing that they are affiliated with Amazon.com, Inc. (“Amazon”) by using logos that are confusingly similar or nearly identical to Amazon’s distinctive trademarks…” (See image above.)

Amazon claims that some customers of the defendants are contacting it under the impression that the companies are connected.

That expired domain you bought might come with a PayPal account

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 10/18/2019 - 15:13

Domains connect to email which connect to…all sorts of things.

Domain name investors know that domain names get all sorts of misdirected email. Your .com email address might get email intended for the matching .org domain. The expired domain you acquire might receive email intended for the previous owner.

Those email accounts might be connected to financial services, too.

The Register wrote this week about someone who acquired an expired domain that was attached to a PayPal account. For months, the domain owner received PayPal statements, password reset notices, and other alerts from the PayPal account. He was also able to get into the account by doing a password reset.

PayPal didn’t seem to care or know what to do about it until The Register wrote about the issue.

Even people who don’t own a domain name can face the plight of email intended for someone else. It happens to my Gmail address all of the time.

One particularly frustrating example is when someone signed up for the SAT using my email address. I received score alerts for the person and couldn’t figure out a way to let them know. More frustratingly, I have now received about 100 emails from various colleges inviting this person to apply or visit an open house.

I was able to notify the student’s mother by doing a password reset on the account and finding a parent email address listed in the account that I used to contact her. Still, my email address is registered with many of the universities.

Sedo removes appraisal requirement on $50k+ domains

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 10/18/2019 - 14:53

$99 appraisal no longer required to list domains for high prices.

Domain name marketplace Sedo has removed its requirement to purchase an appraisal before listing a domain for over 49,999$/€/GBP.

Previously, sellers had to pay for an appraisal to confirm the value before listing a domain with a buy now or make offer (with asking price) above this threshold. This would also apply to domains with a fixed price that were included in SedoMLS.

Sellers could always reply to a make offer inquiry with a price above $50,000, but they couldn’t list that as the initial price without first getting an appraisal from Sedo. The company charges $99 for an appraisal.

Now, sellers can ask whatever they want without going through the time and expense of an appraisal.

Sedo is on a roll making seller-friendly changes. Earlier this year, it dropped its minimum commission on domain sales and lowered minimum sales amounts from $90 to $20, making it easier to sell low-priced domains. (I bought a domain on the platform for $30 last week.)

MIT’s Scratch Foundation gets Scratch.org in settlement

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 10/17/2019 - 17:59

Owner of Scratch.org domain name transfers it to non-profit as part of settlement.

Scratch.org now forwards to scratch.mit.edu.

Scratch Foundation has settled a cybersquatting lawsuit it brought against the domain name Scratch.org with the domain’s registrant, Ravi Lahoti.

Although full terms of the settlement have not been publicly disclosed, part of the agreement involved transferring the domain to Scratch Foundation. Scratch.org now forwards to the foundation’s website at scratch.mit.edu.

Previously, Lahoti was in discussions to settle the case by transferring the domain name for $20,000. That settlement didn’t go through.

After the previous settlement failed, the judge overseeing the case ordered Lahoti to provide extensive information about his domain name activities including a list of all domains he ever owned, how much money he made from each domains, and any allegations of trademark infringement made against him. Oh, and this information would be public!

That apparently sent Lahoti back to the negotiating table.

Lahoti registered the domain name well before Scratch Foundation existed, so his ownership of the domain name does not run afoul of the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act. However, the judge certainly didn’t approve of some of Lahoti’s alleged prior behavior, prompting his approval of the request for data and to make it public.

The settlement notice says that both parties will pay their own legal fees in the matter.

Direct visits driving demand for domains in China

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 10/17/2019 - 17:30

Kassey Lee reviews data about how people in China visit websites.

I often hear that domains are no longer relevant because consumers simply go to their search engines for anything they want to find. This, if true, must be detrimental to domain investment. Unfortunately, I could not find much data to support or reject this idea – except in China.

Baidu collects visitor data of more than 1.5 million websites every month since 2012. Based on this data, I have created the following table to give you a big picture of how Chinese consumers access websites.

According to Baidu, website visitors may arrive using one of the following methods.

Direct visit: Visitors explicitly specify a domain in the browser.
Referral: Visitors arrive via a link from another website.
Search engine: Visitors arrive via a search engine.
Directory: Visitors arrive via a directory of websites.
Social media: Visitors arrive via social media such as WeChat.

As you can see, direct visit accounts for the largest share of web traffic in China. It has also been increasing — from 39% in 2012 to 45% last year. Search engine is doing well too, rising from 27% to 30%. Referral, on the other hand, is trending down. Finally, directory and social media can be ignored because they each account for less than 1% of web traffic.

Focusing on direct visit, it shows that Chinese consumers remember and specify domains in a browser to visit websites. This implies that domains that are easy to remember are important. What are the characteristics of such domains? Short, meaningful, memorable – and on .com extension, which is king in corporate China.

Examples can be found in the 10 listed companies covered by the latest “2019 Q2 Performance of Listed Internet Companies in China” report (2019年二季度我国互联网上市企业运行情况): Alibaba (Alibaba.com), Tencent Holding (Tencent.com), Meituan (Meituan.com), Jing Dong (JD.com), Baidu (Baidu.com), Netease (Netease.com), Tencent Music (TencentMusic.com), Pinduoduo (Pinduoduo.com), 360 Total Security (360.com), and Ctrip.com International (Ctrip.com). They all own their brand-matching .com domains.

Big brands understand this consumer behavior and so the importance of domains. Therefore, they are willing to invest a lot in domains. For example, Jing Dong shelled out $5 million for JD.com and 360 Total Security reportedly paid $17 million for 360.com. A few months ago, Hong Kong-based blockchain startup Block.One stunned the domain market with a $30 million purchase of Voice.com. Corporate China is ready for expensive domains.

In summary, direct visit by Chinese consumers will continue to drive demand for domains, and so memorable brand-matching .com domains will do very well in China.

Oops. If you don’t renew your domain name, this could happen

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 10/17/2019 - 15:27

A government watchdog let its domain name expire. Someone advocating for the other side registered it.

The new message at citizensforabetterkenner.com is in stark contrast to the old one.

An advocacy group in the city of Kenner, Louisiana let its domain name expire. Now someone in opposition to the group is using the domain.

Citizens for a Better Kenner, Inc., is a non-profit watchdog of the local government. It registered the domain name CitizensforaBetterKenner.com in 2011 to promote its cause.

Then, apparently earlier this year, it let the domain name expire. Someone with a very different message registered the domain. The website now has the message:

Thank you to Mayor Zahn, the Kenner City Council, and Chief Glaser for doing an excellent job keeping our city moving in the right direction in 2019.

The overwhelming volume of Kenner residents appreciates what you do!

In a lawsuit (pdf) filed to try to recover the domain (as well as the matching .net and .org) and get damages, Citizens for a Better Kenner states that “The opinions and content as currently displayed on the website are in stark contrast to the actual opinions of the actual CFBK.”

The non-profit alleges that the new owner of the domain is cybersquatting and has “a bad faith intent to profit from the goodwill created over eight (8) years by CFBK.”

The group might have trouble proving this. It does not appear that the current owner has a profit motive. It simply appears to be exercising its own free speech with the “opinions and content,” which may be a plausible defense in the case.

Granted, it may not be clear to people when they visit the website.
