How to default your DropCatch wins to Whois privacy

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

DefaultInstitution.com: Fiserv’s domain name goof

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 03/17/2021 - 16:21

The company used the unregistered domain DefaultInstitution.com in banking software. It forgot to replace it with the real bank’s domain when it implemented it.

Internet security journalist Brian Krebs published a story today about banking technology company Fiserv (NASDAQ: FISV) and a default domain mistake.

Fiserv added defaultinstitution.com as a placeholder in software offered to its banking clients. The domain wasn’t updated to the client’s domain name for five of its clients when they started using the software, which led to lots of emails going to @defaultinstitution.com.

Security researcher Abraham Vegh noticed the bizarre domain name in an email. Noticing that the domain wasn’t registered, he registered the domain and started receiving emails. (Oddly, the domain points to a Dan.com lander.) That’s a bad security leak.

Fiserv made a big oversight. Perhaps next time, it should leave the domain blank or go with Example.com. Or at least a domain it owns.

When will we get back in person for domain events?

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 03/17/2021 - 15:59

I hope that in-person conferences can restart later this year or early next year.

Remember when we could get together for domain events?

NamesCon organizers announced today that July’s NamesCon Europe event in Budapest is canceled. This comes on the heels of ICANN announcing that the ICANN71 Policy Forum in The Hague, Netherlands, scheduled for June, would be virtual.

Neither of these announcements came as a surprise. But with vaccine rollouts gaining steam around the world, when can we reasonably expect to get together in person again?

The next big date on the domain calendar is ICANN72, the Annual General Meeting, scheduled for late October in Seattle. Assuming vaccine rollouts continue as planned and no new vaccine-beating variants gain a foothold, it’s conceivable that North American residents would be able to attend an in-person meeting in October.

There are two challenges, though. First, go/no-go decisions must be made in advance, so we’ll need to see enough progress by summer for ICANN to move forward. Second, ICANN meetings attract attendees from around the world. Will people around the world be vaccinated and feel comfortable traveling internationally?

A likely scenario is a hybrid event in October. Fortunately, ICANN has lots of experience with this. You can argue that all of its in-person events have been hybrid thanks to live streaming and commenting. And it improved its online experience over the past year as it hosted virtual events.

After that, I’m hopeful that NamesCon can stage a live event in early 2022 in North America.

Nominet (.UK) could be forced to change its focus after vote next week

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 03/16/2021 - 17:24

Many members want Nominet to be boring again.

Three years ago, I wrote about ICANN’s budget crisis and what I thought the heart of the matter was. I wrote:

ICANN should be a boring organization but it hired people who want to make a difference.

I visited ICANN’s offices in California in 2008. That was well before ICANN’s finances ballooned. There were fewer than 100 employees back then.

I’d characterize ICANN in 2008 as boring. It was a small organization that was just making sure the domain name system worked.

Then something happened. The company started hiring the wrong type of people. It started hiring people that don’t want to do boring work. People who want to make a name for themselves. It hired people who want to be at the helm of a growing organization that takes on an important role in the world.

This, at its core, seems to be what a fight at Nominet that comes to a head next week is about.

An organized group of Nominet members wants to fire five of the 11 Nominet board members and add two directors who will refocus the organization on a somewhat banal task: market and run .UK, keep costs in line, and donate the proceeds to charity.

It might just happen, too.

Nominet is no longer boring

Much like ICANN, .UK registry operator Nominet has expanded its remit over the past decade. It has moved into security, wireless technology, and many more things that have little to do with operating a top level domain.

It hired go-getters who wanted to do more than just operate the top level domain. Don’t take my word for it; in response to the initiative that threatens to fire him, Nominet CEO Russell Haworth wrote:

Talent is attracted to Nominet by the exciting challenges, culture and values of the business. We can grow a business, while having a positive impact on society. This ‘profit with a purpose’ goal – where we aim to increase the connectivity, inclusivity and security of the internet is what drives our people. Our values of ownership, integrity and boldness and a culture that’s challenging, collaborative and fun is how all the parts move together to run a reliable registry and grow a world class DNS cyber business.

If Nominet takes a 10-year step back in time, it immediately becomes a less exciting place to work. Without high technical and business aspirations we will struggle to retain our best people, and with a tarnished reputation we’ll struggle to replace the good people who leave. This means we’ll rely on contractor resource which increases costs and makes it harder to maintain a unified culture.

Much like ICANN, Nominet’s employment rolls have expanded greatly. It went from 126 employees in 2012 to 229 in March of 2020. Clearly, you don’t need that many people just to run a registry. Nominet does a lot more than that now.

An uprising

Simon Blackler, who runs the hosting company and Nominet member Krystal, has been frustrated with Nominet in the past. But it hasn’t amounted to much.

“When people have challenged the board in the past, they’ve been ignored, belittled, and told that their opinion doesn’t matter,” Blackler told Domain Name Wire. “Nominet has not been afraid to use the law to help them deal with problematic opposition.”

Blackler says that Nominet has previously said any opposition was just a vocal minority of complainers. But he says he’s proven them wrong this time with the groundswell of support he’s garnered for the resolution.

“Now they’re saying the same thing [that it’s just a minority] about us,” he said. “But it’s categorically, demonstratively false.”

Some members have been frustrated in recent years as Nominet has cut off dissension. Blackler pointed to Nominet shutting down a message board and member email list as examples.

While initially downplaying the current initiative, Nominet has responded with a plan to address much of what the resolution supporters demand. The plan and promises haven’t been enough to quell the opposition.

The Vote

Nominet’s membership has called an Extraordinary General Meeting for March 22, when it will vote on a resolution to remove 5 of the 11 Nominet board members and add two directors who will focus on making Nominet boring again. An organization that operates .UK, is responsive to members, and doesn’t do much else.

Membership at Nominet is somewhat unusual. It costs only £400 to join and £100 per year after that. There are many benefits, but the main one is that members get a significant discount on domains. So any registrar that sells .UK domains, along with some large domain portfolio holders, have an incentive to join.

It’s this membership that will vote on March 22.

The initiative has received a lot of support that might be enough to pass the motion. Voting rights are according to the number of domains the member has under management but are capped at 3% of total votes per entity. Supporters of the initiative say they currently have over 25% of the vote total committed to the initiative.

The vote percentage is then redistributed to the entities show up to the meeting, again capping each entity at 3%.

Here’s the thing: attendance at meetings is very low. Typically, less than 10% of the membership. So 25% might represent more than the 50%+1 required to pass the resolution.

To be sure, Nominet management is working furiously behind the scenes to capture enough support to reject the initiative. But even if it manages to get its largest registrars, GoDaddy and IONOS, to vote against the resolution, their votes are capped at 3% each.

Namecheap is the largest registrar to publicly say it will vote for the resolution. Google has said it won’t vote. Many others have not commented publicly about how they will vote.

It will certainly be an extraordinary vote. Which way it goes might impact how similar organizations respond to opposition and calls for change in the future.

How to merge Network Solutions / Register accounts

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 03/15/2021 - 19:36

Here’s how to combine multiple accounts created by Web.com’s dropcatching services.

One of the things I hope Newfold Digital does now that it owns the Web.com properties is to fix its aftermarket. I assume the long-term vision is to combine its NameJet and SnapNames platforms. The platforms are outdated, clunky, and frustrating.

Case in point: even if you connect a Network Solutions account to your SnapNames account in the admin section of SnapNames, SnapNames still creates a new Network Solutions and/or Register.com account to put your domains in. Or multiple accounts, which is extra frustrating.

The company’s solution is to merge your registrar accounts. It works, but the support page explaining how to do it is inaccurate. It says to click on “merge accounts” as it appears in the image. But if you look at the image in the help document, you won’t see an option to merge! You can follow Network Solutions help example ones you’ve added multiple accounts already, but not until you’ve already added the additional account.

So, as a community service, this post will walk you through how you actually merge Network Solutions and Register.com accounts.

First, log in to one of your Network Solutions (or Register) accounts. Click your name in the upper right-hand corner and select “My Profile & Security”.

Then, scroll down to the “Security” section and click “Merge User IDs.”

Next, enter the User ID of the account you’d like to merge with your existing one:

You will then be asked which account you wish to keep, and which one you want to fold into the other.

The domains should move over to the account you retain.

Is this trademark infringement or cybersquatting?

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 03/12/2021 - 17:09

Confusing similarity might be a stretch.

A World Intellectual Property (WIPO) panelist has found in favor of Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories, a generic drugs maker, in a dispute it filed against the domain DrLede.com. The pharmaceutical company uses the domain name DrReddy.com.

The Complainant in a UDRP needs to show that the domain in question is confusingly similar to a mark in which it has rights. In this case, it’s a comparison of DrReddy vs. DrLede.

This seems like a stretch at first glance. They certainly aren’t visually similar. The argument here is that they are phonetically similar even though they aren’t visually similar. You could pronounce Led like lead (the element) with a long ‘e’ at the end. That sounds similar to Reddy.

It reminds me of the company that called (still calls?) new domain registrations and says they are with “GoWebby”, which sounds an awful lot like GoDaddy. They don’t look anything alike visually but certainly sound alike when someone quickly rattles off the name in a thick accent.

In this case, the respondent is clearly up to no good. He has a landing page that uses Dr. Reddy’s old logo and a login box. He didn’t respond to the dispute.

The panelist referred to section 1.15 of the WIPO overview, which lists examples of disputes in which panelists considered the usage of the domain when determining confusing similarity.

While this dispute strikes me as more of a trademark dispute than a cybersquatting dispute, it’s not surprising that the panelist took a small leap to find a way to award the domain to the Complainant.

.Org offers domain quality program to other registries

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 03/12/2021 - 16:51

System rewards registrars for the quality of their registrations, not just the quantity.

PIR’s Quality Performance Index is designed to cut down on bad actors registering domains. The organization is offering its system to other registries at no charge.

Many registries measure their success by the total domains in their namespace. They provide incentives for registrars to sell more of their domains by either charging bargain-basement prices for first-year creates or giving rebates based on volume.

Public Interest Registry (PIR), the non-profit behind the .org top level domain, changed tack in 2018. It decided to focus more on quality than volume.

This was partly because low-cost domains often lead to more abuse in a namespace. Spammers, malware distributors and other bad actors don’t want to pay more for domains than they have to. If you’re going to cycle through thousands of domains, why not register the cheapest ones?

In 2019, PIR introduced a new incentive program for registrars called the Quality Performance Index (QPI). It measures registrars on the quality of registrations, not just the quantity, and offers incentives for meeting these new metrics. The metrics include abuse ratings, renewal rates, domain usage, DNSSEC enablement, SSL encryption usage, and the average term life of a domain name registration.

PIR says that QPI has driven the right behavior: abuse is down and participating registrars saw a 4% increase in renewal rates. Participating registrars include heavyweights IONOS and Newfold Digital, among others.

Now, PIR is effectively “open sourcing” its program. This month, it announced that it’s offering its QPI roadmap and toolkit available to other registries at no charge.

Some registries are likely to adopt the best practices. Others are solely focused on the bottom line and are willing to put up with abuse in their namespace if it lines their pockets. The same can be said for some registrars that turn a blind eye to bad actors.

Here’s what sold on NameJet and SnapNames last month

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 03/11/2021 - 19:28

98 domains sold for $2,000 or more last month.

Web.com’s (or should I say Newfold Digital’s?) aftermarkets NameJet and SnapNames combined for $368,000 in sales of domains over $2,000 in February. The top sale was only $15,000 but there were many nice mid-range sales. Some domains that stand out to me are:

RoadSafety.com $6,916 – A good domain that would work for a safety council or product manufacturer. It was previously used by a company called ZOLL that offered a service to reduce EMS crashes.

TheDigest.com $5,250 – A good ‘the’ domain previously used by a VoIP information site.

PopupStore.com $5,007 – Pop-up stores are popular but I’m not sure how you’d use this domain.

eTechnology.com $4,740 – Brings me back to the good old days of e-domains.

BankOwnedHomes.com $3,638 – There are going to be a lot more of these once foreclosure moratoriums end.

LottoShop.com $2,900 – Not to be confused with Lotto, the soccer company.

Here’s the full list of the 98 sales over $2,000 from the short month:

NFTs are the newest manufactured scarcity

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 03/11/2021 - 16:56

What do you call too many rare things? Something that’s not rare at all.

Like many boys who grew up in the 80s and 90s, I collected baseball cards. My brother and I would pool our allowance and head to the Magik Market convenience store, where you could pick up a pack of cards (complete with a stale stick of gum) for 35 cents. Sometimes we’d get enough money together and convince our parents to take us to Sam’s Club so we could buy a whole box.

I collected for two reasons. First, it was fun. We’d trade cards with other neighborhood kids to collect our favorite players and try to complete the 792-card set. Second, there was money in it.  Popular cards like the 1985 Topps Mark McGwire and 1989 Upper Deck Ken Griffey Jr. could turn a cheap pack of cards into big money for a young kid.

We hoped that if we held onto these cards until our kids were born, as kids did in the prior generation, we’d be holding onto the equivalent of a valuable 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle.

We didn’t think much about the actual supply of cards. The Mantle card was valuable, in part, because it was so rare. There weren’t that many cards printed to begin with. And most kids who owned a ’52 Mantle didn’t take good care of it. Maybe they stuck it on their bicycle spokes. Or their parents threw out their collection when they went to college.

We didn’t realize that the baseball card companies were running their printing presses faster than Zimbabwe’s currency office. And kids didn’t throw cards away anymore because they hoped the cards would be valuable one day.

For the most part, kids of the 80s and 90s were disappointed when seeing how much their collections were worth a generation later.

If baseball cards of my generation weren’t scarce and thus valuable, how could card companies introduce that sort of thrill of pulling open a pack with an instant payday? They had to manufacture scarcity.

One way to do this was through card grading. Third-party certifiers would grade the card for quality, with only the best being deemed worthy of being “Gem Mint.” My first e-commerce business took advantage of this; in the early 2000s, I bought boxes of old unopened baseball card packs on eBay and sold the packs individually on my site. The idea was that buyers could hit paydirt if they scored a rookie card of an 80s star that graded Gem Mint.

This was great for the card graders but didn’t do much for the card companies trying to sell brand new packs. So they manufactured scarcity with so-called insert cards. Some cards had autographs. Others had pieces of game-used material. Others were merely numbered. What they had in common is that each insert had a limited print run.

Card manufacturers printed odds on the packaging. Opening a pack of cards had turned into something akin to buying a lottery ticket.

But what happens when all of the manufacturers put out a bunch of rare numbered cards? They are no longer rare.

The price of many game-used relic cards dropped by 90% or more once the market was flooded. Things got so out of control with many different sets and versions of sets released each year that Major League Baseball signed an exclusive deal with Topps in 2009, drastically reducing the number of options (for a while, at least).

The takeaway is that the way you make something that’s brand new a scarce collectible is to deliberately make it scarce, but this deliberate scarcity is a mirage.

This brings us to 2021. Last weekend I bought a pack of three virtual basketball cards at NBA Top Shot for $14. Each of these cards (or “moments”) is numbered, and some are rarer than others. I turned around and sold one of the cards for $189 the same day.

On Sunday, Top Shot launched a new offering of packs for $199. It limited the offering to about 35,000 packs, so not everyone who wanted one got one. Rarity was part of the pitch:

This rare drop comes packing an extra surprise, as collectors will additionally find one Seeing Stars Moment within each pack as well. Yes, every single Rising Stars pack will come with a rare Rising Stars Moment limited to 2,021 and a common Seeing Stars Moment limited to 10,000.

Back of the envelope, these new packs generated about $7 million in revenue within an hour. This means you can expect lots of cards to be minted that are limited to 2,021, 10,000, or whatever.

This means that a card numbered out of 2,021 isn’t all that rare. Sure, there are 2,021 of that card, but there are lots of alternative “rare” cards people can buy. Manufactured scarcity is eventually dwarfed by manufacturing, e.g., printing more cards.

Some of the hoopla around Top Shot is that it’s also a non-fungible token (NFT). People love their crypto, so this is an opportunity to get in on something like bitcoin. And, to be sure, people who got in early have made a lot of money in terms of value in their accounts. I know at least one domainer who has made enough from Top Shot to pay for college for one of his kids. Stories about collections worth millions are making the rounds.

I think we all know where this ends up, though.  It will go the way of Beanie Babies.

That’s not to say that you can’t make money with it in the short term. By all means, I’ll continue to buy packs of NBA Top Shot when I can, as long as I can turn around and sell the cards for more than the pack cost.

For my money, acquiring .com domains is still my favorite collectible. Only one of any .com will ever be minted. Sure, a second level domain can be created in another extension, but it’s just not the same. A rare .com has a valuable use, too.

That said, tearing open a pack of sports cards is always a joy, whether it’s ripping open a physical pack or clicking on a virtual one.

End user domain name sales led by a $50,000 .io domain

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 03/11/2021 - 14:46

A crypto exchange, a children’s footwear company and an auto parts manufacturer bought domain names.

The cryptocurrency surge is creating lots of demand for domain names. The domains themselves aren’t always descriptive of cryptocurrency, either. The latest example is this week’s top Sedo end user sale of Swap.io. The top sale overall was 509.com but a domain investor acquired it.

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

Swap.io $50,000 – A cryptocurrency company bought this domain.

PPE.us $20,000 – Forwards to ipromo.com, a promotional products company that has also transitioned to selling personal protective equipment (PPE) during the pandemic.

Remote.in $12,000 – Remote Technology Services Inc of California bought this domain. The IT services firm appears to use the domain RemoteTechs.com.

WeeStep.com $7,500 – WeeStep is a children’s footwear brand.

Fahrzeugmarkt.ch €5,600 – This is a French-language website for auto repair shops to order auto parts and accessories.

UniversalEnglish.com $4,999 – Diagnostic & Remediation Education Services Australia bought this domain.

SFUSD.com $4,799 – The San Francisco Unified School District bought this domain.

CompraVenta.com €4,601 – The buyer forwards the domain to CanariasAhorra.com, a Spanish women’s shoe and accessory online retailer.

OpsReady.com $4,500 – OpsReady is a software service provider for no-code and low-code automation with web and mobile apps.

Sanierungsprofi.at €4,000 – This is an Austrian domain for a renovation services company. The term is German for “renovation professional.”

Comptables.com €4,000 – Morgan Phillips, an executive recruiting firm in Luxembourg, bought this domain that translates to “accountants” in French.

SymtechCorp.com $3,995 – Symtech Corporation, an automotive parts manufacturer, bought this domain. The company specializes in headlamp alignment and restoration products, fluid exchange and air conditioning systems. It’s an upgrade from SymtechCorp.net.

ConcordiaDental.com $2,499 – Health insurer Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield bought this domain.

WhiteFoxShop.com $2,400 – Women’s clothing outlet White Fox Boutique of Australia bought this domain. It uses WhiteFoxBoutique.com for its website.

Mesoestetic.it €2,099 – Mesoestetic Pharma Group SL is a Spanish manufacturer of perfumes, cosmetics, and other toiletry items.

ATKG.com $2,000 – This was bought by ATKG CPAs in San Antonio, Texas. It currently uses ATKGCPA.com for its website.

Faey.com $2,000 – WMK Management Services LLC , a management consulting firm in Dubai, bought this domain. It’s not clear what the domain is for.

Quivit.com $2,000 – Business insurance company IPFS Corporation bought this domain. I’m not sure what it will use this domain for.

Domain buyer brokers should protect themselves against being used in a dispute

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 03/10/2021 - 21:16

They should forbid clients from using their negotiations in UDRPs and lawsuits.

The maker of Voxan bikes used a broker’s negotiation as the basis for a UDRP. Photo from Venturi website.

Many skilled domain brokers help companies acquire domain names. When negotiations fail to result in a transaction, clients sometimes use the broker’s effort in an ensuing UDRP or lawsuit.

That was the case in a dispute for Voxan.com last year.  Gildo Pallanca-Pastor, the CEO of Venturi Automobiles, filed a dispute against domain name investor VirtualPoint. The panel found it was a case of reverse domain name hijacking.

Venturi initially used a French firm called Solidnames to try to acquire the domain name. The broker in that case has now told VirtualPoint that it didn’t realize the client would turn around and file a UDRP. He wrote in an email: “Following the failure of negotiations, the end client changed strategy with his lawyer.”

Domain buyer brokers should avoid having their name thrown into a UDRP. Bill Sweetman of Name Ninja explained in a podcast last year that his company’s terms forbid clients from using any of his firm’s negotiations/communications in a UDRP or lawsuit.

As for Venturi, it has tasked Solidnames with trying to acquire Voxan.com again. I suspect it’s going to need to offer a lot more money to buy the domain now than before it filed its abusive UDRP.

[Note: I mistyped the name of the brokerage firm in the initial post. I apologize for the error.]

NamesCon and Cloudfest get out from under the corporate umbrella

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 03/09/2021 - 18:07

Events are no longer part of large domain and hosting companies.

NamesCon and Cloudfest are officially out from being under a big corporate umbrella.

WHD Event GmbH acquired the assets of the two conferences from GoDaddy last week. GoDaddy acquired the conferences as part of its acquisition of Host Europe Group in 2017. Host Europe Group acquired what is now called Cloudfest in 2014 as part of another acquisition. WHD acquired NamesCon in 2016.

Soeren von Varchmin, the leading face of the two events, describes the new owners as “hardcore fans” of the conferences.

Two of the new owners are original founders of Cloudfest: Jochen Berger and Thomas Strohe. They founded the hosting companies intergenia (sold to Host Europe Group and then GoDaddy) and PlusServer (sold to BC Partners). They recently invested in WebPros (cPanel, Plesk, WHMCS).

Serguei Beloussov, founder of Parallels and Acronis, is also an investor.

With the acquisition, von Varchmin is moving into a new role as Chairman of the Supervisory Board. This will allow him to focus more on programming instead of operations.

Christian Jaeger — who once worked for Cloudfest in sales — has taken the CEO role at the company.

The company’s next big event is CloudFest, taking place online March 23-25.

Domain Name Wire turns 16 today

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 03/09/2021 - 14:27

Domain Name Wire is getting its driver’s license.

It’s Domain Name Wire’s birthday today!

I started Domain Name Wire on this day in 2005. The domain industry was in the middle of a big boom cycle thanks to domain name parking revenue. The industry is in another boom cycle right now as domain asset prices march upward.

What does the future hold? We can’t be certain, but you can count on Domain Name Wire to help chronicle it.

Thank you to everyone who stops by to read my stories, comment (even when we disagree!), and provide story ideas to me.

A special shoutout to the advertisers that make this site possible. Please take a moment to click the ads on this site and consider supporting the sponsors that make DNW  possible. I’m in the fortunate position of being sold out of ads right now. But I’ve been in both the boom and bust cycles of this business, so please ping me if you’d like to join the waitlist.

Here’s to another great year!

Escrow.com set a record in 2020

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 03/08/2021 - 18:07

Strong finish to the year helped Escrow.com set a record for gross payment volume. And it wasn’t just from domain names.

A strong Q4 propelled Escrow.com to record gross payment volume in 2020. The red portion represents transactions involving China.

A strong finish to the year helped Escrow.com set a record for gross payment volume in 2020. The company recorded US $486.1m in gross payment volume last year, up 15.2% year over year.

The company says the last four months of the year were particularly strong. Q4 2020 was 56.2% higher than Q4 2019 with a record US $156.6 million in transactions.

It’s not just domain names that are propelling the escrow service forward. Gross payment volume for motor vehicle transactions was up 285% for the year.

And even in Q2, when domain name volume fell off a cliff, Escrow.com was able to fill most of the hole with transactions for personal protective equipment and IPV4 addresses.

Domain and website transactions totaled US $312 million for the year according to data in the company’s quarterly domain index reports. That makes up 64% of Escrow.com’s total gross payment volume last year.

Escrow.com is part of publicly traded Freelancer.com (ASX: FLN). Its Freelancer division also posted a record last year. Combined, the company handled US $618.5 million gross payment volume in 2020.

Anyone can start a club on Clubhouse now. What does this mean for .Club?

Domain Name Wire - Sat, 03/06/2021 - 20:00

A new feature could improve the interplay between Clubhouse and .club domains.

Anyone can start a club on Clubhouse now. (And yes, you have a fat cat.)

It’s been quite a ride for .Club this year thanks to the popular Clubhouse app. Some people are buying .club domains to use in conjunction with the app, and many more are registering .club domains with the hope that the app’s popularity will increase the value of .club domains.

We can debate whether the app’s popularity will make .club domains more valuable and what the intentions are of people pushing this idea. Certainly, a lot of people bought domains they’ll drop in a year. But there is some potential interplay between the app and the domains.

The problem, until the latest app update that most people got today, is that most users couldn’t create a club on Clubhouse. They could create a room, but not a club. The latest update lets anyone create a club.

I believe this improves the interplay between using Clubhouse and owning a .club domain. A club owner can refer people to a matching .club domain to sign up for updates and be notified of upcoming events. Or create some sort of connection with club members off of the app.

The Clubhouse app doesn’t have much connection to the web right now. But if Clubhouse lets people link from a website to a club or creates some other connection, it could be valuable to have a matching .club domain.

Some companies register domains to point to their Facebook or Instagram pages, although it’s still uncommon. Yet most of those services started for the web, not apps. And there isn’t a top level domain for other social networks quite as good  as .club is for Clubhouse.

This doesn’t mean that all .club domains are worth something now, nor does it mean you should plunk down thousands of dollars for a .club domain. But it certainly gives some momentum to the top level domain.
