.Islam top level domain name rejected

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 10/08/2018 - 13:23

.Islam, .Halal and .PersianGulf rejected as top level domains.

ICANN’s board of directors has formally rejected an application for the .Islam top level domain name, as well as .Halal and .PersianGulf. The board made the decision at a special meeting last week.

Asia Green IT System applied for the three domain names as part of the massive 2012 expansion of top level domain names that gave us everything from .bible to .sucks to .wtf.

Certain religious and government groups objected to the applications on various grounds. There was never consensus advice from the Governmental Advisory Committee about the strings, but ICANN was cautious anyway.

Having seen no progress, in 2015 Asia Green filed for independent reviews of the applications being put in purgatory. It prevailed and the panels ordered ICANN to pay Asia Green’s fees for the reviews.

But that didn’t mean ICANN had to give the domains a green light.

At the special meeting on October 3, ICANN resolved:

Whereas, the BAMC [Board Accountability Mechanisms Committee] recommended this action [denying the applications] based not only on the BAMC’s extensive review of all relevant materials, but also on its consideration of and commitment to ICANN’s Mission and core values set forth in the Bylaws, including ensuring that this decision is in the best interest of the Internet community and that it respects the concerns raised by the majority of the community most impacted by the proposed .HALAL and .ISLAM gTLDs; the Board agrees.

So if there will be a .Islam domain, it won’t be until another round of new top level domain expansion.

.IO dominates the Apple App Store

Domain Name Wire - Sat, 10/06/2018 - 16:08

Lots of app developers use .io in their names, but it’s not what it seems.

I was reviewing the top games on the Apple App Store this morning and quickly noticed a trend: .io is all the rage with app developers.

8 of the games on the top free charts have a .io at the end:

  • Paper.io 2
  • Hole.io
  • Bumper.io
  • Ping.io
  • Tornado.io
  • Slither.io
  • Paper.io
  • Beetles.io

So a boon for .io domain name owners? Not quite. It doesn’t look like the game owners all own the corresponding .io domain names used in their app names.

Rather strange if you ask me.

.Io is the country code domain name for British Indian Ocean Territory.

.Bond and .ePost top level domains get the axe

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 10/05/2018 - 13:26

University and postal company terminate domains.

Bond University in Austrailia and Deutsche Post AG are dropping new top level domain names.

Both entities have informed ICANN that they wish to terminate their agreements to run a top level domain name. Bond University is terminating .bond and Deutsche Post AG is terminating .epost.

Bond University only applied for .bond. It activated a couple of second level domains under it; both law.bond and study.bond are set up to forward to pages on bond.edu.au.

Deutsche Post AG, a German postal service, originally applied for .epost, .deutschepost, .trust and .dhl. It withdrew its application for .deutschepost and sold .trust to what is now NCC Group. It retains .DHL and has set up a few sites including logistics.dhl.

Heisman Trophy Trust sues owners of Heisman domain names

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 10/04/2018 - 19:17

Group behind the Heisman Trophy sues owners of domains with Heisman in them.

The organization that administers the Heisman Trophy, which is awarded to college football’s top player each year, has sued three people it says are infringing its trademark and copyright.

The lawsuit (pdf) is aimed at HeismanWatch.com and the Heisman Watch Podcast. The Heisman Trophy Trust says that one of the defendants also owns the domain names HeismanCandidates.com and HeismanWatch.com, which forward to HeismanWatch.com.

According to the lawsuit, the defendants have been infringing its marks and copyright since January 2014.

Heisman Trophy Trust does not appear to have ever filed a UDRP against a domain name.

It’s possible that the defendants didn’t understand trademark law when they registered the domains and selected the name of the podcast. There’s a lesson here for anyone creating a website or podcast about a company or trademarked name: don’t use the actual trademark in your domain name. People have learned this the hard way by using WordPress in their domain name.

University wants to patent way to manage TLDs using Blockchain

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 10/04/2018 - 15:31

Peking University files patent for blockchain applied to DNS.

Peking University Shenzhen Graduate School has filed a U.S. patent application (pdf) for “Systems and Methods for Managing Top-Level Domain Names Using Consortium Blockchain”.

The application admits that the current domain name system is efficient but argues that it has flaws. It states that root servers in Asia are shared by many more internet users than those in North America, leading to slower domain name resolution speed.

The present disclosure has the following beneficial effects: the present disclosure is different from the DNS in that the internet DNS at all levels are centrally managed; the present disclosure is a Top-level domain name management scheme based on blockchain technology. The present disclosure decentralizes in selecting top-level domain managers (TLD nodes) and Top-level domain registrations—none of the TLD nodes in a consortium or a small group can control the entire management process. The present disclosure separates the domain name system into two layers, each corresponding to a sub-domain name system, and how the sub-domain name system is designed is determined by the holder of the Top-level domain name. Therefore, the sub-domain name system can be designed as either centralized system or decentralized system according to the institutions’ wishes.

In addition, since the information on blockchain is public and immutable, trusted agencies and even individuals can access information on blockchain and build a corresponding seed file database to store the mapping relations between the top-level and sub-domain name system. This means that all regions can set up a corresponding number of domain name servers according to their actual need in order to ensure the speed of internet access without being limited by other institutions.

It seems that there are better ways to improve DNS than applying blockchain to it, but I’m certainly open to the concept.

Flying Dog Brewery tries to hijack domain name

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 10/04/2018 - 15:06

Brewery makes “blatant and intentional misrepresentation”, panelist says.

Flying Dog Brewery was found to have engaged in reverse domain name hijacking. Photo from FlyingDogBrewery.com.

Craft brewer Flying Dog Brewery has been found by a World Intellectual Property Organization panel to have attempted reverse domain name hijacking.

The brewery uses the domain name FlyingDogBrewery.com but wants the domain name FlyingDog.com. That domain was registered in 1996 and used by its owner to promote his software company for many years.

The brewery first tried to buy the domain name in 2001. It invited the domain owner to tour the brewery and made a $19,000 offer to buy the domain. The owner declined.

Then, earlier this year, a broker reached out to the domain owner working on behalf of an unnamed client. He offered $15,000 for the domain. The domain owner declined and asked for $225,000. Shortly thereafter, Flying Dog Brewery filed the UDRP.

Amazingly, the Complainant stated in the filing that the Respondent retained an agent to sell the disputed domain name to the Complainant, even though it was clearly the Complainant that initiated the discussion.

Panelist William Towns wrote:

The Complainant could easily have discovered from a brief Internet search the Respondent’s historical use the disputed domain name before filing the Complaint…The Complainant either did not do so, or having done so elected to conceal from the Panel known facts unfavorable to the Complainant. The Complainant submitted a barebones complaint unsupported by any evidence, and blatantly misrepresented to the Panel that the Respondent had hired an undisclosed agent seeking to sell the disputed domain name to the Complainant at an exorbitant price. The record, however, confirms that it was the Complainant who retained a domain name broker. The Complainant’s blatant and intentional misrepresentation as described above constitutes a clear violation of section XIII, paragraph 21 of the Complaint.

The brewery was represented by Offit│Kurman. The domain owner was represented by Thomas P. Howard LLC.

Rand Fishkin: Powerhouses turning hostile to websites

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 10/04/2018 - 14:04

The big internet companies are keeping more traffic on their sites rather than referring it to yours.

Depending on social media platforms to send traffic to your website or to even give you exposure can be a losing game. All of the companies that asked people to follow them on Facebook got burned many years ago when Facebook started throttling who saw their posts.

Writing on his company blog last week, SEO expert Rand Fishkin pointed out that it’s getting worse. And it’s not limited to social media platforms. Even Google is keeping more traffic on its site rather than referring it to other sites.

What can you do? Rand has a number of suggestions, which essentially boil down to doing a bit of everything.

My take is that it’s important that you’re producing content on your own domain name and website. Your domain is yours and is a direct link to your audience. While social media platforms and search engines can change how much traffic they’re sending your way, visitors will often return to the same high-quality website without going through an intermediary like Google. Focus on the direct traffic your site gets in addition to search, social and referral visitors.

It helps if you have a short, easy-to-remember domain name to make it easier for your audience to return to your website.

Read Rand’s analysis (with data) here.

HAHN Kunststoffe tries to reverse domain hijack Hanit.com

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 10/03/2018 - 15:21

Company filed UDRP after inquiring about buying domain name.

HAHN Kunststoffe GmbH has been found to have engaged in “Plan B” reverse domain name hijacking over the domain name Hanit.com. The company markets a high-tech plastic under the HANIT mark.

According to the decision, domain name owner Kwangpyo Kim of Mediablue Inc. in South Korea registered the domain name in 2001. At that time, the Complainant had a German trademark but did not have much of a presence in Asia.

15 years later, in 2016, the Complainant inquired about buying the domain. It received a response through Uniregistry offering the domain for $20,000.

It didn’t buy the domain then and inquired again in 2018. At that time the asking price had increased to $68,000 (then lowered to $60,000). The Respondent attached an Escrow.com screenshot from another sale for $74,980 as a comparison.

HAHN Kunststoffe filed the complaint after that.

In finding reverse domain name hijacking, the three-member World Intellectual Property Organization panel wrote:

Indeed, the Complaint does appear to reflect, as the Respondent concluded, the Complainant’s “Plan B” after failing to register a domain name corresponding to its brand at some point after 1993 and determining not to purchase the Domain Name when it encountered a high price in 2016 and a higher one in 2018. The Panel does not countenance abuse of the UDRP system as an alternative to dealing with the consequences of business decisions.

ESQwire.com represented the Respondent.

Bob Parsons resigns from GoDaddy’s board

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 10/03/2018 - 14:09

Parson’s long exit from GoDaddy oversight is complete.

Bob Parsons with wife Renee. Photo from BobParsons.com.

Bob Parsons has resigned from the board of GoDaddy (NYSE:GDDY), the company he founded in 1997 that made him a billionaire.

In a press release, GoDaddy said that Parsons will spend more time on his other businesses and philanthropic ventures.

Parsons hasn’t been involved day-to-day at GoDaddy for some time. He resigned as CEO in 2011 when he sold the company to a consortium of private equity firms. Parsons was Executive Chairman of the board until 2014 when he switched to just being a board member.

Although I butted heads with Parsons a few times as he built his company, there’s no denying that his entrepreneurial success is not a fluke. He sold his first company to Intuit for $64 million. He then started what later become GoDaddy and watched his cash pile dissolve until the company started selling domain names.

He recounts the story of when the company almost went bust. He had a few million dollars left in the bank and went on vacation to figure out if he wanted to shut down the company. He saw a valet there who seemed very happy parking cars. At that point he made the decision: he’d press ahead with the company; if it failed, he could always be happy doing something else. That turned out to be an excellent decision.

Parsons is a Marine and Purple Heart recipient. His experience in the Marines impacted how he ran the company; there was a focus on physical security. The culture has changed significantly since he left. Internally, the security culture of the company has given way to a Silicon Valley-friendly environment. The company has also eliminated controversial marketing techniques that many called sexist.

Since selling GoDaddy, Parsons has invested in a variety of companies including a golf club maker, marketing firm and real estate. He has also contributed to charities through The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation.

End user domain name sales including a $57.5k new TLD sale

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 10/03/2018 - 13:36

A high-end furniture designer, a mortgage leads company and a German manufacturer bought domain names last week.

This week’s end user sales list is headlined by a new top level domain sale — design.online.

You might recall that Sedo sold Casino.online for just over $200,000 last year. That sale was direct from the registry. In this case, DomainTools historical Whois records show that .online registry Radix sold design.online about a year ago. So this appears to be a resale rather than a registry sale. Update: I heard from Radix and this was actually a direct sale. The domain was registered under privacy about a year ago, but this was Radix putting up a for-sale lander.

Design.online started forwarding to the website for Australian furniture designer King Living after the sale.

That wasn’t the only nice end user sale at Sedo this past week. Let’s get to the list:

(You can view previous lists like this here.)

Design.Online $57,500 – Forwards to King Living’s website kingliving.com.au. King Living is an Australian furniture designer with storeroom locations as well as an online shop.

IDWell.com $20,000 – The Whois shows this name was purchased by Vladimir Kim in Russia. It remains to be seen what this domain will be used for.

FlowX.com $12,000 – This 5-figure sale resolves to a “coming soon” page that says “flow currency” and claims to be in the process of launching the world’s first asset-backed currency since the US left the gold standard in 1971. Will it be based on cryptocurrency?

FHACalculator.com $7,000 – Mortgage Research Center, an independent technology provider helping mortgage lenders generate leads. One would assume they will use this site to provide an FHA loan calculator tool to generate leads.

Lynx.co £6,999 – The Whois shows that this name was purchased by People & Computers, a media outlet and event/conference organizer in Israel.

AICampus.com $6,831 – This site is already up and running as an online training program for Artificial Intelligence with tracks for both managers and developers.

KeyEducation.com $5,500 – The Whois shows the new owner of this site is Vancouver education consultants and program provider, Key Education. It currently uses the domain name KeyAdmissions.com

Smaat.com $5,500 – Forwards to the English version site for a digital marketing agency rooted in the Middle East.

Firesec.com $4,995 – Forwards to the German version of firesec-brandschutz.de. This is a German manufacturer of building materials that contain fire protection.

HyperSat.com €3,900 – This is a site for space-based hyperspectral imaging which uses a spectrometer orbiting on a satellite bus to measure 200+ contiguous spectral bands with a sub-10 meter ground sample distance reflecting from the Earth’s surface, capturing the information in 3-D data cubes. Got it?

LedTek.de €2,000 – A German LED Technology Company.

NameSilo, which just cracked the 2 million domains under management (across all TLDs) mark, was #7 with over 100,000 registrations.

1. GoDaddy.com* 866,819 (951,994 in May)
2. HiChina Zhicheng Technology Ltd. 203,536 (210,854)
3. Tucows** 192,056 (207,430)

9. Google Inc. 89,914 (98,618)
10. 1&1 Internet 48,692

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

1. GoDaddy* 48,452,314 (48,305,409 in May)
2. Tucows** 12,835,741 (12,875,098)

8. Xin Net Technology Corporation 2,172,780 (2,076,944)
9. GMO 2,035,462 (2,064,482)
10. Google 1,782,920 (1,728,215)

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

* Includes GoDaddy and Wild West Domains

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 10/02/2018 - 15:52

NameJet needs to make some changes to improve its results.

It’s been a rough year or so at domain marketplace NameJet.

First, there was the shill bidding scandal last summer.

Then, the company re-lost its Tucows expired inventory to rival GoDaddy. This is despite Tucows owning half of NameJet, so that wasn’t exactly a vote of confidence.

It also lost Name.com inventory. And Namecheap.

Those were big blows. NameJet is mostly left with Web.com’s registrars and Enom, plus pending-delete domain names and private seller inventory. A drop in the Chinese market is also hurting.

Last month, NameJet had $259,000 of sales over the $2,000 mark. It had $744,000 in the same month last year. That might have been an outlier because of a lot of three letter inventory, but I checked year-over-year sales for the past five months and they are all down except for August, which was essentially flat.

This could be somewhat of a death spiral. NameJet needs to reinvest in the business, but it also needs to make the case to its owners that it’s worth making the investment in light of lower revenue. I hope they choose to invest in the business because the industry needs at least two solid competitors for direct-transfer expired domains.

Here are some inexpensive ways that NameJet can improve its business.

1. Fix its app.

NameJet might have beaten GoDaddy to the market with its app, but NameJet’s is inferior. It never alerts me when an auction is ending even though I have it set up for alerts. There also doesn’t seem to be a rhyme or reason to the ordering of domains in the app and it seems to reorder whenever you go back to the same screen.

Alerts are the only thing keeping me on top of auctions at GoDaddy, so this is a big deal. Because I usually forget about the auctions, it’s not worth my time to research domains at NameJet to backorder.

During one week last month, I had a dozen auctions. I would have bid higher than the closing price on at least four of them. I might not have won, but not getting alerts led directly to lost money for NameJet and its partners. And I’m just one small bidder. I would start bidding on NameJet again if it improved its app.

2. Modernize the design.

Remember activist investor J. Carlo Cannell and his gripes about former NameJet co-owner Rightside? While I don’t agree with everything he said, I agree with this:

The user interfaces at eNom and Namejet look and feel clumsy and stale. Looking past the main page of NAME’s sites, the logged-in front-end infrastructure is untouched and acts like time capsule to what existed half a decade ago.

Frankly, I don’t need an interface change. But the graphics NameJet uses to promote auctions do not instill confidence in the platform. A Snappa subscription should do the trick.

3. Change the private-seller system.

I think quite a few investors now filter out domains that have a reserve when searching on NameJet. The same inventory is listed over and over. NameJet should limit the number of times a seller can list the same domain with a reserve during the year. If they want to list it again, make them drop the reserve substantially.

Also, NameJet needs to continue to work on building up confidence in the integrity of its marketplace after the bidding scandal last year. People won’t bid if they don’t trust the system.

Most of these fixes are fairly easy and I believe they will lead to improved results on NameJet. Perhaps NameJet can win more partner inventory if its results improve.

Notable NameJet domain sales in September

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 10/02/2018 - 13:23

Hainei.com leads list of sales at NameJet last month.

NameJet sold 61 domain names for $2,000 or more in September, bringing in a lower-than-usual $259,000 on these sales. Below are some of the notable sales as well as the full list provided by NameJet.

Hainei.com $22,501 – Based on online translation services, this means “the whole world” or “everything under the sun” in Chinese.

Bzip.org $9,700 – bzip2 is a file compression program.

IRIB.com $8,166 – The search results are mostly pointing to Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting.

Anzac.com $7,890 – ANZAC day is a holiday in Australia that sounds a lot like Memorial Day in the U.S.

Agarwood.com $7,399 – Agarwood is a wood used in incense and perfume.

BatteryWorld.com $7,199 – I suspect that this is the reason it sold for so much.

DirtyJokes.com $6,155 – I wonder if this domain gets a lot of type in traffic.

The problem with WordPress

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 10/01/2018 - 14:48

WordPress is too complex for the average small business owner to use. The on ramp needs to be simpler.

GoDaddy’s integration with Beaver Builder makes it easier for people with no tech skills to customize a website. But it’s still not quite there.

WordPress powers 31% of the web. I’ve used it on this very blog since 2005. But WordPress has a problem for the millions of small business owners that don’t have a website: the learning curve.

That’s why I’ve reviewed WordPress alternatives like Wix, Weebly, SquareSpace, Yahoo Small Business and GoCentral.

These website builders make it much easier to get started than WordPress. The problem is that they can’t easily be exported to WordPress when a website owner is ready to harness more flexibility and customization. (One exception is DreamHost’s Remixer, although that’s not a very competitive site builder.)

With 13 years of WordPress experience, it’s easy for me to do just about anything required in the Admin interface. But when it comes to customizing the look and feel of a site, it’s difficult unless you’re a coder. Gutenberg promises to make some of this easier, but the site structure itself will still be difficult.

Some of the pre-built frameworks can help but still have a long way to go. Consider Genesis, which this site and PodcastGuests.com are built on. The Genesis framework is designed to make customizing a site easier, but I still can’t use it without a developer.

There are lots of great themes for Genesis. The problem is that the out-of-the-box experience with these themes is nothing like what you’d expect. They are installed with a default blog structure rather than what the theme looks like, and users have to then dig into widgets to recreate the desired look.

WP Engine acquired StudioPress, the maker of Genesis, earlier this year. It has a big opportunity here. It should create a one-click experience for people to choose a theme built on Genesis that matches the layouts shown on the site.

Of all the WordPress experiences I’ve tried, GoDaddy’s seems to be the closest to hitting the mark for making it easy to customize a site. This is thanks to an integration with Beaver Builder, a drag-and-drop plugin for WordPress. GoDaddy asks for your site category and contact details, layers in its Primer theme, and then lets users customize their site using Beaver Builder. Here’s an example of a site built on GoDaddy and Beaver Builder.

It’s still too difficult for someone who isn’t experienced with the WordPress admin, but at least it doesn’t require a developer to create the site.

Automattic’s WordPress.com is another viable alternative. The sign up process asks how skilled the creator is and customizes the experience accordingly.

The holy grail is to allow people to create a site on a sort of WordPress-lite. Something that doesn’t look like WordPress…something like the site builders. Then, when people are ready for the added flexibility that WordPress brings, they can unlock it be converting to the full version of WordPress.

“Stop the Price Increase of .COM” petition gains steam

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 10/01/2018 - 13:44

Internet Commerce Association, a group that represents the interests of domain name owners, is pushing a petition to tell the U.S. Government to continue to intervene to prevent Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) from increasing prices on .com domain names.

The petition is starting to gain stream with close to 1,000 signatures as of this morning. You can sign it here.

The Cooperative Agreement between the U.S. National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) and Verisign is what has kept .com prices from increasing another 31% during the past six years. While the actual .com registry agreement is between Verisign and ICANN, ICANN has generally allowed Verisign to increase prices of .com domains by 7% for four out of the six years of the previous contracts. Unsurprisingly, Verisign has taken all of the price increases it has been afforded.

For every $1 Verisign increases prices on .com domains, consumers pay an additional $137 million per year.Click To Tweet

It was the NTIA that stepped in back in 2012 to shut down price increases, and it is in the same position to do so now. The Cooperative Agreement expires at the end of November 2018. The NTIA can extend the agreement in its sole discretion. It is currently negotiating behind the scenes with Verisign without input from the internet community at large.

Should the NTIA let the agreement expire, Verisign will be free to negotiate price increases with ICANN.

Verisign already receives outrageous profits from the contract. It gets to charge $7.85 every time a .com domain is registered or renewed. If the contract were put out to bid, the cost would probably be a few dollars or less.

For every $1 increase in the wholesale cost of .com domain names, consumers around the world pay an additional $137 million a year in fees that go almost entirely to Verisign’s bottom line.

Review: Yahoo Small Business website builder

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 09/28/2018 - 15:13

The Yahoo Small Business website builder needs some work.

I’ve reviewed a handful of website builders at this point: Wix, Weebly, Squarespace and GoCentral.

Usually absent from discussions of the big site builders is Yahoo, which is now part of Verizon. Yet its legacy as a business offering website services for so long means many people use it. So I decided to give the Yahoo! Small Business website builder a test run.

At this point, I’m running out of site ideas to create, especially since some of these builders aren’t created for content-heavy information sites. We’re planning to sell our house this spring, so I decided to create a site promoting the house to get a jump on marketing it and get it into search engines. (Like any good domainer, I registered a domain name back when we built the house to market the home when we eventually sold it. OK, so maybe this is not normal.)

Building

My first reaction when I started building the site on Yahoo Small Business was one of awe. It seemed so simple and the template I chose was perfect for marketing a home for sale.

Once I started getting into the details, however, the experience soured as I experienced glitches, poor UI and limitations. Among the issues I faced:

  • Font sizes can only be changed by hitting a +/- sign. You can’t enter a size. So if the text you are editing is size 18 and you want to double it, you’re going to have to click the + sign 18 times.
  • Deleting elements isn’t always intuitive. Sometimes the delete option showed when I hovered over an element but other times it didn’t. I got very frustrated at one point and navigated back to the dashboard. When I came back to the site building editor, the delete option showed up fine again.
  • When I wanted to hyperlink some text to another page, the only option was to paste an entire URL into the link box. There is no option to select an existing page on the site to link to. If you want to link an image or menu link, you can select from a list of your site’s pages. Why there’s a difference here makes no sense.
  • Random elements just kept showing up on my site. When I published, there was an additional image box of some guy staring into the abyss. At first, the picture wasn’t on my site editor. Later the picture showed up on my editor and I was able to delete it. When I removed some text from the editor and re-published, the text continued to show up on the published site. I even did a hard refresh and tried a different browser. Then, when I switched pages in the editor and went back to that page, the text was there. Was it not autosaving the changes correctly, even when I hit publish? Maybe…
  • There’s some sort of bug if you use a + sign in your text. There was one text box I changed over and over. The “auto saved” notification flashed to indicate it was saving, and then I published. But the text didn’t get updated, over and over. I tried on several different days. Then when I took the + sign out of my text and changed another word it published correctly.
  • Photos you upload to the site aren’t stored in a library. Instead, every time you want to change a photo on the site you have to upload it from your computer, even if you’ve already uploaded the image. When I asked Yahoo about this, the company said that it’s designed this way to make easier for people without website building skills. I’m not sure how this helps.

I pulled out a lot of hair building my simple two-page website. It kind of reminded me of the frustrations you experience when building a house.

Editing the site proved challenging.

I’m very happy with the final design, but getting there was anything but easy. I almost gave up with the plus sign issue. I ended up changing the wording of the site to remove the plus symbol to get it to save.

If building a site on Yahoo wasn’t easy for me–someone who has now used five different non-WordPress website builders–then it can’t be easy for others.

Packages

There are three packages to choose from.

The Lite package is $60 per year. It includes unlimited pages (but limited storage) and bandwidth, support, and SSL.

If you want to operate your site on your own domain, you’ll need to upgrade to the Basic plan for $84 per year. It includes a free domain plus email.

At $120 a year, the Professional package includes private domain registration, 5 email boxes and 10 GB of storage.

The Lite package is a non-starter since you are forced to use a yahoosites.com subdomain, but the Basic package should work for any one-person business.

Publishing and Promoting

Like the rest of my experience, the process of publishing was frustrating.

First, I had to complete my account registration. This isn’t usually a big deal. But here again, it was a bad experience. The registration has a litany of mandatory questions including what your company’s annual revenue is. I understand why Yahoo wants this information, but mandating it is a big pain when you’re trying to convert into a paying customer!

After selecting the Basic plan and submitting my order, I received an email with instructions for changing nameservers but the email was branded “aabaco small business”, the former name of Yahoo Small Business.

I also got another email from “Commerce Central” and an email address @lexity.com, with no branding that suggested it was from Yahoo Small Business. It wasn’t until I clicked a link in the email that I saw that Commerce Central is from Yahoo.

Again, more confusion in the process.

Another frustration was that Yahoo Small Business didn’t automatically install the SSL certificate for the site like other site builders do. I had to go through a tool called SSL Manager. I also had to think to do this, which makes me think that many of the non-technical people Yahoo is targeting with its service won’t know they need to install and SSL certificate.

You also can’t set up 301 redirects of any type. That means both www. and non-www resolve and you can’t forward one to the other.

On the plus side, adding Google Analytics is easy. You can also set meta descriptions for each page and insert additional header code, and even insert your own HTML into pages.

Overall

There are a lot of great website builders out there that non-technical people can use to build a website. It’s possible that Yahoo Small Business has suffered from what has happened at Yahoo (now Oath) over the years. For whatever reason, the site building experience is not nearly as refined as other site builders. I love how my site looks, but getting there was not easy.

16 end user domain name sales up to $127,000

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 09/27/2018 - 17:24

Two Australian companies, several tech businesses and a private equity firm bought domain names last week.

It was a lively and interesting week for end user domain name sales with a six-figure domain sale, Mappa.com, topping the list. There were three more 5-figure sales that I could identify, including the three-letter domain IAW.com and a new gTLD name, King.online.  Several names seem to be for new marketing campaigns such as HoldItHigh.com, a slogan for the J.P. Wiser whisky brand.

Let’s get to the list:

(You can view previous lists like this here.)

Mappa.com $127,400 – Frank Schilling’s Name Administration was the seller. The domain has Whois privacy so it’s not clear who bought it but it’s clearly an end user at this price. Two possibilities are a Japanese animation studio called Mappa Co that uses the domain name Mappa.co.jp or this backpack maker.

Fasting.com $50,000 – L-Nutra is a nutrition company that promotes fasting and sells products to help with fasting diets.

IAW.com $20,501- Features a nearly blank page with the message “I am Warren.” and “This domain is not for sale.” Not sure who Warren is but it will be interesting to see what he makes of this valuable 3-Letter .com.

King.online $17,250 – This one word generic forwards to KingLiving.com, an Australian high-end furniture designer that also has storefronts in Asia.

HoldItHigh.com $9,800 – Redirects to the J.P. Wiser whisky website where they prominently feature the tagline “Hold It High”, making a perfect site for marketing campaigns around this slogan. Right now they’re doing an online “toast” where you can send a friend a toast or personal dedication through your social media feeds.

Ecovest.com $9,000 – Purchased by Solon Advertising & Marketing, which specializes in the alcoholic beverage industry, so this site might be for one of their clients.

NetChex.com $9,000 – NetChex is an HR solutions provider. This domain is an upgrade from NetChexonline.com.

Pulsar.io $7,500 – This domain was bought by a company called Streamlio, Inc. whose claim is to have developed the first unified real-time solution for the data-driven applications with open-source technologies for messaging, processing, and storage of streaming data in real-time. Whatever that means.

FanPlus.com $6,325 – “FAN +”, as they’re branding themselves, is a new centralized marketplace that connects Australian fans with their sporting clubs, athletes and personalities. Fans can purchase experiences with their favorite teams and players. Cool idea.

JobWay.com $5,000 – This domain forwards to jobway.se (Sweden) for this Swedish headhunting firm.

Digital.biz €4,000 – .Biz names don’t make this list often so it’s great to see to an example like this. Currently, the page is displaying a cryptic message with “GW – Driving Our Future to Innovations with New Web Launch” so we’ll have to stay tuned to see what comes of this site.

TerraChem.com €3,500 – Purchased by Quimicos & Plasticos, S.A., a Caribbean company that distributes raw materials for the coatings, inks, adhesives, plastics, cosmetics, & detergents industries. It’s not clear what they’ll use this site for but there is another company called Terra Chem who uses the .net version of this domain.

SensorGeneration.com $3,500 – Currently this redirects to Tacterion.com, a Munich-based German plastics manufacturer who developed sensorskin – a stretchable sensor layer for making curved, soft and complex objects sensitive to touch and pressure. So this site could be a landing page for future campaigns for this technology.

Marima.de €3,000- Forwards to Nuuvera.de which is a German medicinal cannabis startup with a parent company in Canada.

Trickss.com €3,000 – This domain currently resolves to a page that’s under development, but it looks like it might be a site about new tech gadgets.

HighlandStreet.com $2,888 – This site is in development for a mid-market private equity firm focused on fin-tech.

VRPages.com $2,500 – A virtual reality industry directory with listings for different categories of businesses.

NameSilo doubles in size in just one year, crosses 2 million domains

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 09/27/2018 - 15:51

Registrar that was acquired earlier this year is growing at a fast clip.

Domain name registrar NameSilo has doubled its domains under management in about a year, according to data published by the registrar. It now has 2 million domains under management (DUM).

The registrar hit one million domains on August 22, 2017. It has 2,004,656 as of the time of writing.

In addition to providing a total count, NameSilo breaks it down by top level domain name. This adds some credibility to the numbers, as it’s not stuffing cheap new top level domain names to grow its DUMs. Nearly 75% of its registrations are .com. .Net, .org and .info round out the top four.

Inexpensive domains fall in line after that but represent a small percentage of the domains.

Brisio Innovations, a Canadian investment firm, acquired NameSilo earlier this year for $9.5 million plus undisclosed earnouts.
