The Daily recap of Shane’s Auction Picks, the 13th of April 2016

Auction Quick Recap

More Godaddy trouble today. I wasn’t working online, but Travis emailed me and said he couldn’t register anything. This is a problem I’ve had in the past and one that I have advised Godaddy about several times. Usually the name will appear as available, when you attempt to add them to your cart the system tells you it’s unavailable. Eventually after a couple tries the name will go into your cart and allow you to check out. Today it seems like the problem was worse and the system would not allow any names to be registered.

I was just reading a post on Namepros, the discussion was primarily focused around Godaddy and Uniregistry and how easy Uniregistry is to use. I agree, and like I’ve said in the past I’ve stayed primarily with Godaddy because of Premium Listing’s and having an account rep that I can email or call that will take care of any issues I have. But eventually enough will be enough, I want to believe they’re working on things but I’m really having trouble understanding why they’re buying portfolios and not fixing these issues.

Maybe I don’t understand how it works, maybe Godaddy could care less if they lose business to Uniregistry, maybe the concerns of domainers are a minor inconvenience to their larger business goals. If I did care about these things and I ran the largest registrar in the world, I wouldn’t sleep or let anyone else sleep until it was fixed. Alas I don’t make those decisions and people that are a lot smarter than me do.

  1. Half the time, my reps don’t even answer my emails.

    Something not good is definitely going on at Go Daddy lately.

    My reps used to be on it, not so much anymore

    1. Sorry to hear that. If you reach out to me I will make sure that you are taken care of. We do our best to provide the best service in the industry so I will be happy to help make sure you are taken care of. Jstyler at godaddy dot com

  2. We did have an issue yesterday where the domain registration path was impacted briefly. It probably doesn’t look like it to a casual observer but we are always releasing new changes to the site to improve performance and user experience as well as releasing new products which are a lot more attention getting, we do a lot of releases each day to help improve the site. We test extensively and sometimes even with those tests something goes wrong but it is pretty rare. The vast majority of releases are seamless and result in a better experience for the customers at the end of the day.
    Any time customers are impacted it is a big deal for us and we work on getting it fixed as soon as we can. I apologize for the issue yesterday.
