ICANN responds to Afilias’ .Web emergency stay request

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 12/26/2018 - 15:16

Non-profit domain overseer argues that an emergency stay isn’t required.

ICANN has responded to a request by Afilias to stay any ICANN actions that would further the delegation of the .Web top level domain while the International Centre for Dispute Resolution considers a complaint that Afilias filed. (Here’s the backstory.)

In its opposition to the emergency stay, ICANN points out that Afilias has participated in similar behavior to what Afilias is complaining about: buying and selling new TLDs. Afilias has acquired other TLDs and is trying to acquire more, and ICANN posits that the deal between Nu Dot Co and Verisign is essentially the same thing. I’m sure Afilias would argue that doing a deal before an auction is different, but it didn’t register any complaints when Automattic did something similar for .blog.

ICANN also points out that Afilias waited two years before lodging it formal complaint and asking for an emergency stay, which belittles the idea that there’s an emergency.

Also, if ICANN delegates .Web to Nu Dot Co, its contracts will allow it to cancel the agreement should the IRP be found in Afilias’ favor and ICANN’s board agrees.

The full response is here (pdf).

SSC.com saved in UDRP

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 12/26/2018 - 14:31

Ohio company fails to convince panelist that the owner of SSC.com is cybersquatting.

A World Intellectual Property Organization has denied a cybersquatting complaint brought against the domain name SSC.com.

Service Spring Corp. of Maumee, Ohio, filed the cybersquatting complaint under UDRP against the valuable three-letter domain name. The domain is owned by someone in China who seems to be a domain name investor.

From reading the decision, it doesn’t seem that the domain owner relied much on being an investor in short domains as part of his defense. However, the panelist agreed that there are many uses for this domain name and the domain wasn’t registered in bad faith to target the Ohio maker of springs.

The case was decided by panelist Warwick A. Rothnie.

Someone is pretending to be a well-known domain name broker.

This is a story about an imposter. An imposter who pretended to be a well-known domain broker and tried to con another domain name broker into buying a domain name. Name Ninja Bill Sweetman tells the story…and calls out many red flags that you should take note of when you are buying a domain name.

NBC registers domain names for sports betting

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 12/24/2018 - 13:56

Do the registrations foreshadow a new sports betting platform or are they merely defensive registrations?

Is NBC going to offer sports betting?

NBC registered a handful of sports betting domain names on Friday including NBCSportbook.com and NBCSportsSportsbook.com, as well as non-.com versions of NBCSportsBet, NBCSportsBets, NBCSportsbook and NBCSportsBetting.

With sports betting being liberalized (both legislatively and judicially) across the United States, sports betting domain names might see an uptick similar to what marijuana domains have experienced in recent years. This is actually one of my predictions I’ll share on the 2019 DNW Podcast predictions episode.

NBC’s registrations suggest it might offer its own sports betting platform. The registrations could also be defensive; the reason it registered the non-.com versions of NBCSportsBet, NBCSportsBets and NBCSportsBetting is because third-parties already registered the .coms.

Another CEO leaves DigitalTown

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 12/21/2018 - 22:05

Nagy exits business three months after taking CEO role.

George Nagy has left the CEO role at DigitalTown after just three months on the job.

Nagy, who had been COO of the company, took over for Rob Monster when he left in September. Monster is the CEO of domain name registrar Epik.

DigitalTown is relevant in the domain name industry because it owns a lot of new top level domains including about 11,000 .city domain names. It also has marketing agreements with new TLD companies in which it guarantees certain purchases.

The company creates city websites and pitches itself by combining a bunch of buzzwords like blockchain, smart cities and cryptocurrency.

New gTLDs is a horrible name for…New gTLDs

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 12/21/2018 - 16:25

The term means nothing to the typical internet user, let alone domain registrant.

Yesterday, Wired published an article about “Weird Domain Names” referring to new top level domain names.

While “weird domain names” certainly isn’t the name people in the domain industry would like used to refer to new TLDs, I think it’s actually a lot better than new TLDs (or new gTLDs). Here’s a response I made to Jeff Neuman on Twitter:

People understand “weird domain names” more than “new gTLDs” even if it isn’t ideal

— DomainNameWire.com (@DomainNameWire) December 20, 2018

I was at a party last night and discussed domain names with a couple. One of them worked for a business that sold products to veterinarians. I mentioned the .vet top level domain. But I didn’t use the term top level domain or new top level domain. That means nothing to most people. I typically use the term “domain extension” or sometimes “domain ending”. That makes a lot more sense to most people.

It reminds me of early in my career when I worked for a telecom company. One of the execs was lamenting the fact that DSL revolutionized how people use the internet but the best marketing name the company came up with was DSL.

Always check the domain name

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 12/20/2018 - 17:50

This spoof site is easily identified by the domain name.

A fake article on a site made to look like Business Insider.

I was browsing the web today when a new window popped up on my screen. It looks like a Business Insider article with the headline:

Trump Battles the FDA Over Bill Gates’s Breakthrough Discovery! Says “This WILL NOT Be Banned, The American People Have A Right To Have Access To This”

This is a bizarre headline even for Business Insider. It’s also an exceptionally realistic looking page: there’s a “hot” ticker that continues to increase, market updates, and a section full of Facebook comments.

It’s a fake page, though. The article is pitching a product called Neuro Blast. Commenters claim “it’s a true miracle” and “I am amazed after using Neuro Blast”. But the dead giveaway is the URL:

Apparently, Fox now owns Business Insider and has switched to a .today domain name.

The links throughout the article all lead to siteupdate(.)services, which forwards to NeuroBlastToday(.)com. The URL string has an affiliate ID in it but that might just be for tracking. All three domains were registered at Namecheap and use CloudFlare.

This is just another reminder of how important a domain name is. Google is starting to downplay the domain name and URL in search results. Making sure it’s visible makes it easier to spot fraud.

Apple continues its retreat from I

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 12/20/2018 - 15:58

Another product or rebrand is using the Apple brand rather than i.

Screenshot from iBooks author. Photo from Apple.com.

iPad. iPhone. iThis.

You can credit Apple with making i a popular way to start a product name or domain name. Before Apple started using i, everyone was all in on e.

But this has changed over the past few years as Apple started moving away from the i brand and more to Apple starting with the Apple Watch.

Here’s another example. Apple just registered these domain names:

appleauthor.ca
appleauthor.jp
appleauthor.community
appleauthor.live
apple-author.com
apple-writer.com
appleauthor.net
appleindieauthor.com
applepublisher.com
mac-author.com
myappleauthor.com
apple-author.com
apple-writer.com
appleauthor.net
appleindieauthor.com
applepublisher.com
myappleauthor.com

My best guess at this point is that this is the new brand for what was iBooks Author…but it could be much more.

Accel-KKR sells One.com to Cinven

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 12/20/2018 - 13:29

Private equity firm that flipped Host Europe Group buys another European hosting company.

A European web hosting and domain registration company is changing hands.

Private equity group Accel-KKR is selling One.com to another PE firm, Cinven.

The sale price wasn’t released but One.com has over 1 million customers, 270 employees and revenues estimated at about €60 million.

This isn’t Cinven’s first rodeo in the European hosting market. It acquired Host Europe Group in 2013, built it up and then sold it to GoDaddy (NYSE: GDDY) for $1.8 billion.

Cinven hints at an acquisition strategy in a release about the deal:

There are opportunities to accelerate the growth of the business organically and through acquisition: Cinven’s strategy centres on helping One.com realise its growth potential drawing on its sector expertise and experience through its successful investment in HEG.

One.com is an ICANN-accredited registrar. It has about 25,000 .com domains under management but I suspect much of its business is in ccTLDs.

Arma Partners advised One.com on the sale.

10 end user domain sales up to $750,000

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 12/19/2018 - 19:41

An investment firm, betting tool and crypto-mining browser bought domain names last week.

We now know who bought Files.com for $750,000, the top reported sale last week. Details are below.

This is Sedo’s last sales list until the second week of January, so the end user sales list on DNW will be on a short hiatus. Check out previous lists if you go through withdrawal.

Files.com $750,000 – Action Verb, LLC is launching “powerful file management for businesses of every size” at Files.com next year. Action Verb develops platforms for enterprises to manage their organizations.

Lofis.com €55,000 – Lofis Hungary Investment Kft

SocialBetting.com €9,000 – This domain forwards to CopyBet.com, a platform for copying sports bets.

FSJI.com $6,400 – This is a much shorter domain for Florida Spine and Joint. It forwards to FloridaSpineAndJoint.com.

CryptoTab.com $3,595 – CryptoTab is a web browser that mines bitcoin.

StoryQ.com €3,000 – Rick Stevenson is launching a new website in February, and this is likely the domain name for it. On his personal website, he states “I have conducted over 5,500 deeply personal interviews with kids and teens from 12 countries using my own brand of inquiry that is dedicated to raising childhood emotional intelligence. I believe that teaching young people to tell the most difficult story they’ll ever tell—their own—unlocks their potential from within.”

Empfohlen.com €2,500 – Empfohlen means recommended in German. Right now the site has animal recommendations.

Zume.in $2,500 – Forwards to Zume.com, a food delivery platform.

Fabaz.com $2,499 – Fabaz is short for Fabulous Arizona. The domain forwards to FabulousArizona.com.

TCDD.com $2,000 – Taha Company. I suspect this is an acronym for Taha Company and then something DD.

Pushing domains to auction at Sedo

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 12/19/2018 - 14:07

It makes sense only in limited circumstances.

One of the more interesting features of domain marketplace Sedo is the ability to push a domain name to an auction if you receive an offer on the domain.

Let’s say you’re negotiating with someone for example.com. They offered $100 and you asked for $2,000. You negotiate until they get to $1,000. You decide you’ll sell it for that much but want to see if there are other interested parties. By pushing it to auction, it will be listed in Sedo’s auctions with a starting bid of $1,000. If no one else bids then it will sell to the person you were originally negotiating with.

This is a somewhat controversial mechanism. If an end user negotiates to buy a domain, they will probably be surprised if they are suddenly in a public auction.

Nevertheless, this can be an effective way to extract more money out of liquid domains. It might make sense when you’re selling a domain that could be purchased by a domain investor (and the price is a domain investor price). It also makes sense if you’re received prior offers on the domain; Sedo will notify the inquirers that it’s now on auction. But it doesn’t make much sense for domains that lack broad appeal that have end user bids.

Reviewing Sedo auctions this morning, there are a couple where I don’t think the owner should have pushed them to auction: Kanabi.com at $10,000 and PetClassifieds.com at $12,000.

While it’s possible someone could swoop in and bid, I doubt any domain investors will. Maybe, just maybe, someone interested in the domain will type it in, see it’s on auction, and place a bid. But if I were the domain seller, I would have just accepted the offer and closed the deal before adding friction to the process.

Uniregistry is dropping Topcoin

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 12/18/2018 - 15:33

Customers have until the end of March to use Topcoin at Uniregistry.

Domain name registrar Uniregistry is dropping Topcoin from its platform. The company announced the change in an email sent just before midnight Friday night.

Topcoin is a blockchain-based digital rewards system. It is designed as a rewards program for customers of digital goods such as domain names and web hosting.

Uniregistry is the only major company I’m aware of that joined the program, and Uniregistry founder Frank Schilling was directly involved with Topcoin.

Customers were often frustrated by Topcoin, however. Uniregistry distributed the reward cryptocurrency when customers purchased products but it was difficult to redeem Topcoin. Each coin essentially had dollar parity at Uniregistry but could only be used for part of the purchase. Customers with the highest discount rates at Uniregistry couldn’t redeem Topcoin at all.

Ironically, now that Uniregistry is raising prices for anyone that doesn’t opt into its paid discount plans, it’s possible that people will be able to use their Topcoin. They have until the end of March to redeem Topcoin at Uniregistry before the registrar stops accepting it.

The Topcoin.com website changed yesterday or today to note that it is undergoing maintenance. A Topcoin representative told DNW that it is working on getting more partners where people will be able to spend Topcoin, as well as restore the ability to access Topcoin through the Topcoin.com website.

GoDaddy tests new branding on Afternic landers

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 12/18/2018 - 13:30

Company tests putting its logo on landers promoting domains for sale.

GoDaddy has added its own branding in addition to Afternic branding on some For Sale landers as part of a limited test. Here’s an example:

So far the test is being run on a subset of GoDaddy’s own domain portfolio.

Customers have asked for a branding change on For Sale landers for a while. The current standard template is branded with the Afternic name, which has little brand recognition with the typical end user domain buyer. Adding the GoDaddy branding should instill confidence in domain buyers.

The test landers also improve the responsiveness and loading time of the landing pages.

Hopefully, GoDaddy will roll this change out to customer landers as well in the future.

Verisign jumps in on .Web dispute, here’s what it could mean

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 12/17/2018 - 16:03

Actions suggest Verisign is ready to bring .web to market, not to bury it.

Shortly after domain name registry Afilias filed for Independent Review over the .Web top level domain, Verisign filed an amicus brief asking for an end to the shenanigans.

Domain Incite has a great summary of the filing, so I won’t rehash it. But I will discuss what Verisign’s goals might be.

For the uninitiated, here’s the background:

Nu Dot Co, a business founded by .Co’s founders, applied for the .web top level domain. In 2015, Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) decided it wanted to own .web and worked out a deal with Nu Dot Co in which Nu Dot Co would bid in the auction and Verisign would then buy the top level domain from it.

Nu Dot Co won the auction for $135 million, which was the amount of the second highest bid placed by Afilias.

Donuts subsequently sued, upset that Nu Dot Co pushed for an ICANN auction-of-last-resort in which the losers didn’t get to split the proceeds. Donuts lost its battle.

After Donuts exhausted its options, Afilias picked up the baton and filed for cooperative engagement with ICANN. Now it has escalated to the Independent Review Process.

During this time, U.S. antitrust forces investigated Verisign’s deal, ostensibly to see if its goal in getting .web was to quash competition. It decided to not take action, which suggests that it didn’t find any evidence that this was Verisign’s goal.

Fast forward to Verisign’s amicus brief. This is the first time Verisign has explained its side of the argument. It wants the matter resolved and wants to get control of .web.

What does this mean? Here are some reasons Verisign might now be pushing for speedy resolution:

1. It wants to bring .web to market. I tend to think that Verisign really wants to make money with .web. It doesn’t want to damage its bread-and-butter .com, but given how new TLDs have gone so far I think it would be very hard for .web to harm .com.

2. Its contract with Nu Dot Co could contain a clause that requires the company to wrap up the assignment soon.

3. It could be weighing in just to make sure it doesn’t lose the deal.

Regardless of Verisign’s thinking (and sometimes I have trouble understanding what the heck it is thinking), it’s fair to suggest that it’s the new top level domain companies, not Afilias, that have delayed the launch of .web. As Verisign points out in its brief

Afilias took no steps for over two years following its letters to ICANN to initiate an IRP or pursue any other ICANN accountability mechanism. Instead, Afilias sat on its supposed rights, relying on Donut’s CEP for a temporary stay of delegation, thereby scheming, along with Donuts, to delay the delegation of .web for as long as it could.

It’s possible that Afilias was free-loading on Donuts’ legal activity with the hope that it would be resolved in its mutual favor, but it certainly looks like it is trying to delay .web for as long as possible. It certainly could have made its own filings concurrent with Donuts’ activities.

Media Options files trademark for ABCDEFG

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 12/17/2018 - 14:42

Company wants trademark related to domain consulting and brokerage service.

Domain name brokerage Media Options has filed a trademark application for ABCDEFG and launched a website at ABCDEFG.com.

The company filed the application on December 12 citing a first use date of November 20, 2018. The application states services of “Domain Name Brokerage and Consulting; Branding and Naming Consultancy and Agency.”

There is a basic website on ABCDEFG.com that states “Every business starts with a name. Abcdefg is a naming agency and brand consultant that helps startups and organisations to name their businesses or products.”

It appears that Media Options acquired the domain name this year, but figuring out the date is not possible because of GDPR-blocked Whois records.

Why DreamHost is holding off on WordPress 5.0 updates

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 12/14/2018 - 16:58

Hosting company will delay auto-updates until after Christmas as a precaution.

Earlier this week I wrote about how GoDaddy auto-updated its managed WordPress customers to WordPress 5.0 shortly after it came out and why I thought this was a bad idea. This week I also interviewed Mika Epstein, a WordPress engineer at DreamHost, for an upcoming podcast and asked her how DreamHost was handling the update.

“In this case, because 5.0 was such a major update, we actually haven’t begun running our auto updates yet for customers,” Epstein said.

DreamHost usually pushes out updates quickly but made an exception for WordPress 5.0.

“If it’s a security update, we’re absolutely going to push it out immediately and run upgrades on everyone, but in this case, because it’s the change that involves the new WordPress blog editor, formerly known as Gutenberg, and because it is such a dramatic change to so many things, we opted to wait until after the holiday season.”

While most sites can handle the 5.0 update without a problem, the company didn’t want to risk an update that breaks a site (especially an ecommerce site) during this busy time of the year.

“It’s really a gamble,” Epstein said. “I’d love to say that the majority of sites are going to be fine with 5.0 and this is true. That said, the people that are going to break are our high profile customers, are our customers who have e-commerce stores who maybe haven’t been keeping up with all their plugins and their theme updates like they should.”

DreamHost will notify all customers about the update and give them a chance to opt-out before pushing out automatic updates.

Epstein noted that each hosting service will make an auto-update decision based on its user base.

.Law verification process to be simplified

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 16:46

Change will make it easier for registrars to onboard top level domain.

The process for registering .law and .abogado (Spanish for attorney) domain names is about to get easier.

Registrants will still need to be a lawyer, law firm, court, law school or local regulator, but this information will be checked through standard Whois field rather than additional registration fields. This will make it easier for domain registrars to offer the domains without additional integration and development work.

.Law registry MMX provided these details to DNW:

MMX’s verification method has been simplified for both registrants and registrars allowing for standard Whois data fields to be used in verifying eligibility.  More specifically, the changes eliminate specific data fields required for registering a .law domain which also reduces any related development work for registrars to onboard .law.

.law’s purpose remains consistent in promoting trust within the legal profession by allowing qualified lawyers, law firms, courts of law, law schools and legal regulators to register a name.  MMX will continue to verify registrants to ensure adherence to its eligibility policy and protect the integrity of .law domain names.

The use of standard Whois data fields is effective on January 7th, 2019.

We are now working with several registrars to onboard .law and expect to see registration growth in 2019.

If you want additional information on .law eligibility requirements you can go to http://nic.law/eligibilitycriteria/

10 end user domain sales up to $450,000

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 15:28

Floral delivery company 1-800-Flowers.com purchased plants.com for $450K, topping several end user sales this week.

I’ve already written about this week’s top end user domain sale, Plants.com. Sedo broker Dave Evanson sold this domain to 1-800-Flowers.com on behalf of a Lousiana tropical plant nursery. You can read an interview with the seller here.

Here’s a look at this and other end user domain sales this week, including a .store domain for five figures. (You can view previous lists like this here.)

Plants.com $450,000- Sold to 1-800-Flowers.com potentially to redirect those who are searching for plant-specific gifts and products.

Dental.Store $11,785- BlueSafety.com specializes in water filtration for medical facilities. It is forwarding the domain to its BlueSafety.com website.

Rentberry.ca $8,888- Home rental company Rentberry now owns the Canadian ccTLD for its business, which operates at Rentberry.com.

HartMedical.com $3,500- Hart Medical Equipment is forwarding this domain to HartMedical.org. The company sells respiratory equipment, patient room equipment, bathroom and safety aids, wheelchairs and more.

Rewards.us $3,499- Purchased by Fluent, Inc., a digital marketing agency, so this may be for a campaign they’re working on for a client.

Bergamotte.fr €3,000- Plants.com wasn’t the only floral/plant-related purchase. This domain name was purchased by French floral delivery service Bergamotte, which is forwarding it to its .com domain.

Champion.hk $3,000- This Hong Kong ccTLD was bought by a solar power company called Champion Holdings Limited that sells and installs solar panels in China.

Brattle.us €2,750- This domain was purchased by the Brattle Group, which forwards it to Brattle.com. It provides consulting and expert testimony in economics, finance, and regulation to corporations, law firms, and public agencies.

4FT.com $2,300- A much better and succinct domain for this Spanish auto trader and appraisal service for classic cars that currently uses Fichatecnicareducida.online. It forwards to the longer domain.

Lifehealth.org $2,200- A nice .org domain for this healthcare service provider that is about launch.
