FTA.com domain name sells for $400,000

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 03/05/2021 - 16:19

Shane Kinsch strikes again with another big domain name sale.

Ah, the good old days. Shane Kinsch bought FTA.com for $70 in 1999, back when the registrar sent a paper invoice for each domain. Kinsch just sold the domain for $400,000.

Anyone who owns a three letter .com domain name has received many offers for it. It was probably tempting to sell during the Chinese boom a few years back, when investors regularly offered $50,000+ for halfway decent domains.

But Shane Kinsch held out with his domain FTA.com. It was worth the wait — he just sold the domain for $400,000.

The updated Whois record shows that Awesome Motive Inc. in Florida is the buyer. The company is the creator of WPBeginner, OptinMonster, MonsterInsights, WPForms, and SeedProd. It’s not clear what it will use this domain for.

I’ve previously written about some of Kinsch’s sales, including Cumberland.com for $250,000 and Barri.com for $100,000.

Kinsch registered a couple of thousand domain names in the late 90s and early 00s, including many three letter domains. He registered FTA.com in December 1999, back when Network Solutions charged $70 per domain and sent a paper receipt whenever you registered a name. He still has a copy of that receipt (see picture).

It took two decades, but Kinsch turned a $70 registration into $400,000.

Korean chicken restaurant chain settles lawsuit with domain investor

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 03/04/2021 - 19:01

Company had tried to secure a domain through a UDRP, only to be hit with a lawsuit.

Domain investor GNO has settled a lawsuit against a Korean chicken restaurant chain over the domain MomsTouch.com.

Korean fast food chain Mom’s Touch has settled a lawsuit domain name investor GNO, Inc. (Gregg Ostrick) filed against it.

Mom’s Touch’s parent company, Haimarrow Food Service, Co., Ltd, filed a UDRP with Asian Domain Name Dispute Resolution Centre in August 2020 against GNO’s domain MomsTouch.com.

GNO filed a lawsuit in Colorado court (where the domain registrar is located) before the UDRP was decided. GNO asked for declaratory relief and a finding of reverse domain name hijacking.

GNO recently filed a notice of settlement discussions and followed up with a notice of dismissal this week.

The Whois record for MomsTouch.com changed on March 2 when the domain name was transferred from Name.com to GoDaddy.com. This suggests that part of the settlement involved the chicken restaurant chain acquiring the domain from GNO.

Desktop.com launches out of beta

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 03/03/2021 - 17:30

Remote team and web app platform is backed by several people in the domain name industry.

Desktop.com, which has raised over $4 million in seed money, exited beta this week.

Desktop.com has officially launched the non-beta version of its product.

The service is the brainchild of .Global founder Rolf Larsen. Larsen sold .Global to Afilias in 2019 and began working on his vision for Desktop.com shortly thereafter.

The timing could be fortuitous. At its core, Desktop.com is a system that helps companies and their employees manage web apps and collaborate online. This has become more important as workers went remote in the wake of Covid-19.

Desktop.com’s product is free for small teams of up to 4 people and $8-$10 per month for larger organizations and ones that need additional features.

Investors in Desktop.com include Frank Schilling, Idealab (which sold the domain to the company under a payment plan) and Oslo’s Norse Digital. The company has raised over $4 million in seed rounds.

The SiteLock v. GoDaddy lawsuit is getting ugly

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 03/03/2021 - 17:08

Discovery process has gotten so bad that the parties are using a court reporter to document meet-and-confer sessions.

A legal battle between website security company SiteLock and GoDaddy (NYSE: GDDY) gives credence to the idea that the only people who win in a lawsuit are the lawyers.

SiteLock sued GoDaddy in May 2019, claiming that GoDaddy owed SiteLock payments under a reseller agreement in which GoDaddy sold SiteLock’s product to its customers. Abry Partners — the private equity company that owned Donuts when the suit was filed — acquired SiteLock in 2018. Apparently, some issues came up following the acquisition, which led to the lawsuit.

SiteLock’s main argument was that GoDaddy owed it money whenever GoDaddy sold the SiteLock product to a customer, but that GoDaddy was arguing it only owed the money if the customer ended up activating the product. The relationship soured in 2017 after GoDaddy acquired SiteLock competitor Securi and began promoting the Securi product instead of SiteLock.

Fast forward to the end of February 2021 and there are 257 docket entries in the dispute, mostly having to do with discovery. United States District Judge Dominic Lanza summarized (pdf) the discovery in this case:

The discovery process has not, to put it mildly, gone smoothly. Time and again, the parties have resorted to bickering and fighting in lieu of seeking cooperative, productive solutions, then deluged the Court with voluminous filings related to discovery disputes. Things got so bad that the parties began using a court reporter to transcribe their private meet-and-confer sessions. And, remarkably, even the use of a court reporter wasn’t enough to prevent the parties from arguing over what was said during these sessions—one side has now accused the other of improperly conspiring with the court reporter to alter the transcripts of a meet-and-confer session.

The court reporter issue he refers to involved a session in which SiteLock served the court reporter with an errata sheet, which the reporter accepted. GoDaddy says that SiteLock made a concession during the session that was struck.

A lot of dirt has come up during discovery, to be sure. GoDaddy alleges that SiteLock violated its “Most Favored Nation” clause with GoDaddy regarding pricing. GoDaddy discovered that other companies had better pricing, but SiteLock argues that GoDaddy should have been aware of this issue (and brought it up) earlier.

Recently, GoDaddy filed motions to compel related to several subpoenas it filed with competitors that sold SiteLock’s products, including Tucows. GoDaddy also alleged major issues in the accounting that SiteLock provided to GoDaddy.

It’s unclear whether SiteLock or GoDaddy will come out on top in this lawsuit. But the companies’ lawyers will certainly smile all the way to the bank.

.Com leaderboard gets a shakeup

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 03/03/2021 - 14:01

The Endurance-Web merger changes the look of the charts.

ICANN has published the latest official data from Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) about the .com namespace. This registrar-by-registrar report covers November 2020.

Last month, Endurance International Group went private and combined with Web.com in a new company called Newfold Digital. Starting with this month’s report I have combined the entities. I have also added in the SnapNames registrars. Newfold leaps Tucows in the total domains under management chart.

This combination creates one more space on the total domains under management leaderboard, which created another quandary: should TurnCommerce be included? I only include registrars that are open to the public, not closed registrars owned by a domain investor. TurnCommerce’s registrars are open to the public but a large percentage of its domains are owned & operated. I made the decision to start including the registrar and to combine the numbers from NameBright and its DropCatch.com LLCs. That puts it in the #7 slot.

Here’s how registrars did in terms of new .com registrations in November:

1. GoDaddy.com* (NYSE: GDDY) 832,844 (877,848 in October)
2. Namecheap Inc. 263,785 (286,290)
3. Newfold Digital+ 232,929 (n/a)
4. Tucows** (NASDAQ:TCX) 207,024 (231,248)
5. Alibaba (HiChina) 203,286 (163,555)
6. Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOGL) 144,030 (154,803)
7. United Internet^ 120,167 (79,506)
8. Wix (NASDAQ: WIX) 96,220 (94,842)
9. Dynadot 84,546 (n/a)
10. CentralNic^^ (AIM: CNIC) 80,478 (73,193)

 

Here’s the leaderboard of the top registrars in terms of total .com registrations under management as of the end of November 2020.

1. GoDaddy* 54,735,035 (54,610,243 in October)
2. Newfold Digital 14,595,094 (n/a)
3. Tucows** 12,988,434 (12,977,614)
4. Namecheap 6,856,440 (6,516,860)
5. Alibaba 6,133,679 (6,086,689)
6. United Internet^ 5,719,043 (5,655,462)
7. TurnCommerce++ 4,513,069 (n/a)
8. Google 4,052,113 (3,994,114)
9. GMO 2,149,198 (2,174,353)
10. CentralNic 2,207,996 (2,145,282)

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

* Includes GoDaddy, Wild West Domains, Uniregistry and 123 Reg
** Includes Tucows, Enom, Ascio and EPAG
+ Includes PDR, Domain.com, FastDomain, Bigrock, Network Solutions, Register.com, SnapNames registrars, and Crazy Domains/Dreamscape. There are other Newfold registrars, but these are the biggest.
++ Includes NameBright and DropCatch registrars
^ Includes 1&1, PSI, Cronon, United-Domains, Arsys and world4you
^^ Includes Key-Systems, 1API, Internet.bs, TLD Registrar Solutions, RegistryGate, Moniker, Instra

Which is better: a 4 letter domain or a 22 letter domain?

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 03/02/2021 - 20:39

The answer to this post’s headline isn’t as obvious as it seems

At least audibly, this company’s name is easier to remember than its initialism.

I was listening to NPR this morning and one of the sponsor’s domain names caught my attention. The sponsor was called Your Part-Time Controller, and the message said to learn more at YourPartTimeController.com.

That’s a mouthful!

A surprising thing happens when you type in this 22-character domain name: it forwards to the four-letter domain YPTC.com.

This begs the question, “Which is better for audible advertising? The 22-character domain or the four letter domain?”

In this case, I think the sponsor got it right. I don’t think I would have remembered YPTC.com. I probably would have gotten the letters out of order. But I could remember Your Part-Time Controller dot com.

In other words, the longer and more descriptive domain passes the radio test while the initialism is harder to remember.

And the company did something else smart. It registered both PartTimeController.com and YourPart-TimeController.com. Both forward to YPTC.com.

What do you think?

Domain investing is changing. It’s time to adapt your strategy

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 03/02/2021 - 16:22

What worked before might not work in the future.

Business changes. So does domain investing. What worked before might not work now or in the future. That’s why domain investors need to constantly evaluate their approach and make changes.

The simplest example of this is to go way back in time. To the mid-1990s, when you could hand registered valuable domain names. Or the late 1990s, when you could figure out the drops and land fantastic domains for standard registration fee. Or the .com bust, when you could do this again.

Obviously, these options are no longer available.

For the past many years, many of the domains I’ve acquired were expired domains in auctions that landed around $100-$200. I’d turn around and sell them for $2,000-$5,000. These same domains are now selling for $300-$800 in auctions. When I run the numbers with sell-through rates, it’s hard for me to make the math work. So I’ve had to adjust in the past year.

Many other strategies of the past decade have also been rendered difficult. Reaching out to end users to buy their domains? Yeah, that was easy about 10-15 years ago. But now these domain owners have been inundated with offers. Using APIs to snap up GoDaddy closeouts at $11? Now it’s $50.

This doesn’t mean that the old strategies no longer work. But you have to get creative and work harder. Constantly analyze your business, look for trends, and adjust accordingly.

Two people who have done this are Mark Levine and Nikul Sanghvi. They shared their latest tactics on recent episodes of the Domain Name Wire Podcast. It might also be valuable to listen to my podcast interview about strategic planning with Warren Coughlin.

The message is that you can’t rest on your laurels. Look forward and around the corner.

From Spider-Man to Miller Lite, these were the top domain stories last month

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 03/02/2021 - 14:50

Here are the top five stories from last month.

Domain name stories aren’t just about buying and selling names. They can also be entertaining, as February’s top two stories on Domain Name Wire show. These were the top five stories on DNW last month ranked by pageviews:

Domain names suggest title for upcoming Spider-Man movie – Much like how I scooped possible names for Wonder Woman 1984, these recent domain registrations suggest titles for the next Spider-Man movie.

Miller Lite will pay you $8 to type in this 836-character URL – The beer company made a very long URL part of its Super Bowl campaign.

Endurance to acquire Web.com, spin off Constant Contact – The big keep getting bigger! The combined entity is called Newfold Digital.

Breaking: Verisign announces .com price hike to $8.39 – .Com domains will cost more to renew/register starting September 1.

New GoDaddy domain listing wizard generates 350k aftermarket listings – GoDaddy has added a lot of latent domain inventory to the aftermarket by opening up a domain listing tool to more of its customers.

XYZ launches five top level domains this week

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 03/01/2021 - 17:59

Beauty domains and .quest are available starting March 2.

XYZ is launching five new top level domains this week, including four beauty-themed domains.

Top level domain name company XYZ is launching five top level domain names tomorrow.

.Beauty, .hair, .skin, .makeup and .quest will enter general availability at standard prices.

XYZ acquired the four beauty domain names from L’Oreal last year. L’Oreal previously launched .makeup, so it’s technically a relaunch. The relaunched domain will be much more appealing; L’Oreal charged up to $10,000 per year for .makeup domains but they will now be available for about $15-$20 per year. The other domains are priced similarly.

.Quest was acquired in 2019 from Hong Kong company QNet.

With these five new additions, XYZ has 17 top level domains on the market.

CentralNic earnings show shift from domain registration company to ad company

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 03/01/2021 - 17:10

Ad revenue made up nearly half of CentralNic’s 2020 revenue.

Advertising revenue , mostly from parked pages such as these, made up 46% of CentralNic’s revenue in 2020.

Domain name industry rollup CentralNic (London AIM: CNIC) reported unaudited financials for 2020 today. The results show a significant shift in how the company makes money.

CentralNic has three business segments:

Indirect – Revenue from the reseller registrar channel (e.g. Hexonet), registry services provider (e.g., providing the backend for .XYZ), and running the .sk country code.

Direct – Revenue is generated from sales to end consumers such as small businesses, i.e., retail.

Monetization – This includes domain parking from its Team Internet/Parking Crew acquisition, and more recently zero click and affiliate marketing company CodeWise.

Monetization accounted for just $1.875 million, or less than 2%, of revenue in 2019. It accounted for a whopping $112.073 million, or 46% of revenue in 2020. It was 39% of the company’s gross profit.

This was a good thing last year because domain monetization took off. The revenue per thousand (RPM) CentralNic received for parked domains was up 36%, primarily due to increased rates from Google. The company credits this increase to better traffic quality after pruning some clients and to the company’s SSL-page monetization. But I’ve heard that other parking companies also received sharp increases in RPM from Google last year, so at least part of the increase was not related to CentralNic itself.

The increased reliance on ad revenue means CentralNic might grow faster, although the revenue will not be as predictable and stable as domain registration revenue.

Overall, revenue at CentralNic was up 121% to $242.1 million last year. The company says that taking out acquisitions and a few other items, the company grew 9% organically last year.

Full results are available here.

ICANN terminates Net 4 India

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 03/01/2021 - 12:28

ICANN finally terminates Indian domain name registrar that has been in insolvency.

ICANN announced on Friday that it has finally terminated its Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA) with Net 4 India Limited. Net 4 India has been in insolvency and customers have complained about many issues.

ICANN said that it received lots of complaints — 400 of them between June 5, 2019 and September 30, 2020 — about the registrar, many of them about domains not renewing and the inability to transfer them.

The non-profit domain overseer first contacted Net 4 India about customer complaints in April 2019. It issued a Notice of Suspension in June 2019. The suspension was delayed due to activity in Indian courts. ICANN started issuing breach notices to the registrar in late 2020. In January this year, ICANN issued its third breach notice to Net 4 India, noting that a court in India asked it to delay terminating the registrar so long as Net 4 India complied with the accreditation agreement.

Apparently, it has not done so.

ICANN will now commence the De-Accredited Registrar Transition Procedure.

DigitalOcean files to go public

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 02/26/2021 - 17:27

Cloud platform has over 570,000 customers, including Domain Name Wire.

Annual run-rate revenue at DigitalOcean is charging up to the right. The company filed for an IPO this week.

Cloud platform DigitalOcean has filed to go public, planning to list on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker DOCN. It currently lists the raise at $100 million.

The company was founded in 2012. Last year, it generated $318.4 million in revenue, up from $254.8 million in 2019.

It lost $43.6 million in 2020. The company calculates an adjusted EBITDA number that clocked in at $95.9 million last year, up from $55.2 million in 2019. The biggest drivers of the adjusted number last year were $75.6 million in depreciation and amortization and $29.5 million in stock-based compensation.

The company boasts 573,000 customers as of December 31, up from 502,000 in Dec 2018.

38% of its revenue last year came from North America, 30% from Europe, and 22% from Asia.

The monthly average revenue per user was $47.78 in 2020, up from $35.97 two years earlier.

DigitalOcean was carrying $263.7 million of debt as of Dec 31, 2020.

Former GoDaddy CEO Warren Adelman joined the company’s board in Nov 2020.

Domain Name Wire uses DigitalOcean for hosting.

One person spends $4.85 million in domain auction

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 02/25/2021 - 21:20

Bidder picks up Bird.com, Fish.com and Tattoo.com.

A single bidder has scooped up several of the high dollar domains in today’s Right of the Dot domain name auction.

A bidder using an IP address from Queenstown, Maryland paid $2.5 million for Bird.com, $1.6 million for Fish.com, and $750,000 for Tattoo.com.

In a Clubhouse room organized by DomainSherpa, the general consensus after Bird.com sold was that the scooter company that uses Bird.co bought it. That theory was quickly shot after Fish.com sold. At that point, it seemed like a pet supplies company. But then…tattoo.com?

Bird.com and Fish.com were sold by the same person, who will certainly be celebrating tonight.

It will be interesting to see who the buyer is.

(An original version of this post incorrectly stated that Fish.com sold for $1.5 million, not $1.6 million.)

ROTD live virtual domain name auction today

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 02/25/2021 - 16:38

There’s an open bar in your kitchen for today’s live domain auction.

Right of the Dot is holding a live domain name auction today with 108 domain names.

The company previously held events in conjunction with NamesCon and the TRAFFIC conferences. While in-person live domain auctions aren’t possible during Covid, Right of the Dot has set up a studio in Texas with auctioneer Wayne Wheat to get as close as possible to the in-person experience.

Right of the Dot started with hundreds of domains available for pre-bidding and narrowed it down overnight to 108 lots for the live auction. The others will be available in an online auction after today’s main event.

The final list of live auction domains includes a mix of great domains with reserves and less valuable domains with no reserve. Notable names include Asian.com, Greece.com, and Emily.com.

The live auction kicks off today at 12 pm CST. The silent auction concludes on March 4. Bidding information is available at RightofTheDot.com.

End user domain sales up to $117,500

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 02/24/2021 - 14:22

A three-letter domain sale tops Sedo’s weekly list.

Sedo’s top public sale this past week was PLP.com for $117,500. It’s a nice six-figure sale, as every decent three-letter end user domain sale should be.

Keep in mind that Sedo doesn’t publish information about all domain sales. 1/3 of its sales dollar volume last year was for domains with confidentiality requirements. So there are likely lots of sales like PLP.com that we never learn about.

Here’s what I dug up for recent end user sales at Sedo. (You can view previous lists like this here.)

PLP.com $117,500 – Preformed Line Products (PLP) is an international designer, manufacturer and supplier of cable anchoring and control hardware and systems, fiber optic and copper splice closures, and high-speed cross-connect devices. It goes by the abbreviated name PLP, and forwards its new three-letter domain to its website at Preformed.com.

OneCandy.com $12,500 – Candy Capital is a privately-held family-run firm established by British entrepreneur and businessman Nick Candy to manage his personal business interests and group of companies. The company uses the domain CandyCapital.com.

Samudra.com £10,000 – Samudra manufactures pumps and motors. It forwards this domain to SamudraPumps.com.

Mail.hr €8,000 – The domain now forwards to Mail.de, a German email services provider.

EUTech.org €6,000 – MuP Verwaltungs- und Beteiligungs AG, or MUP Group, bought this domain. This is a German service provider across multiple sectors like engineering, construction and project management, renewable energies, real estate development, infrastructure and water management.

IU.at €5,000 – IUBH is an international private university in Germany. It forwards the domain to IUBH.de.

We-Link.com $4,900 – Whois shows a company called We Link in France. There’s a company in France by this name that provides sales technology.

Tipos.de €4,250 – Tipos is a Point of Sale system provider.

Blumenheld.de €3,500 – The domain forwards to Pure-Hygiene.de, which is a German company that sells water disinfectants.

Meddrop.com $3,499 – Meddrop GmbH is a German bio-med company that manufactures and sells cosmetic and medical devices under the brand names Dermadrop, SEYO and Vetdrrop.

TravelNorth.com $2,445 – This domain forwards to the website for Vitus at Vitusreiser.no. It’s a Norwegian tour company offering outdoor travel experiences.

RockIslandAuctions .com $2,399 – Rock Island Auction Company, a collectible firearms dealer, bought this domain and forwards it to RockIslandAuction .com.

Objektiv.de €2,200 – Objectiv manufactures furniture and products for improving a room’s acoustics.

BlackLawyersMatter.org $2,195 – Law School Admission Council (LSAC) is a nonprofit organization whose members include more than 200 law schools throughout the United States, Canada and Australia. It administers the LSAT exam.

8 notable takeaways from 2021 Global Domain Report

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 02/23/2021 - 21:01

This is what stood out to me in this year’s Global Domain Report.

InterNetX and Sedo released their annual Global Domain Report this week. The 76-page report recaps what happened in 2020 and looks forward to 2021. The data-rich report uses data collected by the two companies and third parties. You can download it here.

Here are eight things in the report that stood out to me.

Europe loves its ccTLDs (page 16) – travel to many countries outside of the United States and you’ll see a curious thing: the near absence of .com. Businesses in many countries prefer their local country code domain name to .com. A chart breaks down the number of domains registered per 100,000 inhabitants in many countries. Several European countries have standout numbers. The Netherlands leads the pack at about 35,000 domains registered per 100,000 inhabitants. Of course, some people/companies register more than one, and foreigners can register some ccTLDs.

Lots of domains are registered each year even though the base only grows slowly (page 24) – The total base of registered .com domain names inches up slowly. In September, the total number of registered .com domains hit 150 million. Now it’s at 153 million five months later. But with so many deletions every month, a lot of registrations (or re-registrations) are necessary to keep that number moving up. A chart on page 24 shows that there were nearly 38 million new .com registrations last year.

Usage numbers are staggering (page 25-26) – There are many ways to measure if a domain name is being used or not. I think numbers showing usage are mostly inflated. But the report uses DomainsBot’s definition of usage to show the TLDs with the most and least usage. .Com, .org and .net lead the way, but there are some new TLDs on the list as well. The namespaces with the most undeveloped domains and inactive domains include cheap new TLDs, but there are also many .com, .net, and .org domains that don’t resolve at all.

Don’t drop the ‘the’ (page 45) – InterNetX has a database of 2.6 million aftermarket domain sales. It calculated which words show up most often in these domains. The, home, and free lead the list. Free is a surprise to me. Keep in mind that this list is from a long period, not just the past year.

More domains sold in 2020… (pages 37, 52) – Sedo sold more domains in 2020 than in 2019. You can kind of see this in a chart on page 37, but that chart is missing a y-axis. It’s quantified on page 52, though: there was a 26% increase in sales volume.

…at a lower median price (page 57) – Median sale prices at Sedo were down for .com, .net and .org in 2020. This is likely because Sedo scrapped its minimum sales fee mid-2019, so many more low-priced domains sold. It might also be due to more expired domain sales. The median for .com fell from $630 to $332. The average for .com fell from $2,693 to $2,223.

Those sales lists don’t include everything (page 59) – Sedo helps the industry by sending lists of sales over $2,000 to blogs like Domain Name Wire each week. There are a couple of things you should note. First, given that it’s limited to sales over $2,000 and the median price last year was $435, it’s missing many sales at the bottom end. Second, the lists often exclude the biggest sales. 14% of Sedo’s sales last year were kept confidential, and they represented 1/3 of the total dollar value.

Sell with Buy Now prices (page 61) – 2/3rds of Sedo’s sales in 2020 were buy now transactions! Top public buy now transactions included Instructions.com for $65,026, HotelsGuide.com for $59,575, Hop.in for $50,000, and trajectory.com $50,000. Oh, and SedoMLS now accounts for 1/3 of Sedo’s sales.

Saw.com brokers to help Efty sellers negotiate deals

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 02/23/2021 - 17:35

Efty users can pass leads to Saw.com brokers.

Back in November, domain sales platform Efty announced that it was going to start onboarding domain brokers to help people sell their domains. Today, it announced such partnership with Saw.com.

Under the arrangement, Efty users can pass inbound leads over to Saw.com brokers to negotiate deals. Sellers will pay a 15% commission (or $250, whichever is greater) when a deal is closed.

This is similar to what you can do at Uniregistry. You can either handle a lead yourself or pass it off to a Uniregistry broker. DAN.com has a similar deal with Media Options.

There are two benefits to using a broker to handle leads. First, it takes some of the emotion out of it and can give a negotiating edge. This is one reason home purchase offers are handled through agents rather than directly between buyer and seller. Second, brokers with good systems are better at following up. It can take lots of follow up to close a deal.

For now, sellers need to be invited to use the brokerage option. Users can email the company at ask at efty.com with the subject line ‘Brokerage’ to be added to the waitlist.

GoDaddy’s Afternic had security hole

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 02/22/2021 - 19:23

Issue with API has been resolved.

GoDaddy allows customers to use a physical security key, like the pictured Yubi device, to protect their main accounts. A recent security breach will increase calls for similar two-factor authentication at Afternic.

GoDaddy’s Afternic domain aftermarket platform had a security issue with its API that has since been fixed, the company told impacted customers.

In an email to impacted customers, the company stated:

On Thursday, February 12, a security researcher contacted us about a potential issue with a Web API. We immediately opened an investigation and found a misconfigured server accessible though [sic] the API. Using this API, the security researcher crafted a specific request that returned information from other customer accounts.

Through our audits, we identified this specific API call was run against a small segment of our customers’ accounts. Unfortunately, your information may have been viewed using this call, which includes your first name, last name, email address, physical address, telephone number, and your Afternic username. At no point was your password or credit card information at risk.

As soon as we identified the issue, we removed the server from rotation, securing our API infrastructure.

Please monitor for any suspicious communications that may come from third parties through the contact details that were on your Afternic account (e.g. email/telephone number).

We are very sorry this incident happened. Protecting the privacy of our customers is our top priority and we let you down in this instance. Our team is committed to preventing these types of incidents in the future and we’ll always be forthcoming in our communications with you.

A GoDaddy spokesperson confirmed that all impacted customers have been contacted.

It’s fortunate that no passwords were accessed. With fast transfer turned on, someone could change the price of domains and purchase them at a low price to effectively steal them. It would be helpful if GoDaddy enabled two-factor authentication for Afternic to make this less likely to occur.
