Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Monday February 19th, 2018

Feb 19 2018

Escrow.com

 

The old too good to be true thing works in almost every situation.  When you find a name that is listed at BIN but missing a zero, especially by a big company, almost everyone would jump on it.   Even when you know its too good to be true. DomainNames.com was listed accidentally at Web.com for $2600 at BIN and of course it got jumped on and purchased.  A name that is probably a six figure name and anyone in this industry has a bit of knowledge about value could see it.  No doubt the buyer knew it was a mistake and hoped it was one that would work in his favor.  Once Web.com figured it out they reversed the purchase and refunded the money. All except the hosting plan that was attached to it.

In no way do I blame the buyer for buying it.  It was there for the taking.  I also think he needs to be compensated in some way. Not a ton, but something.  When you make a mistake there needs to be repercussions. Web needs to be out some money.   I just don’t think the payment needs to be great when the person on the other side knew there was a mistake going into the purchase.   My feeling is that no way a judge turns over the name and the cost of a lawyer may be more than the resulting reward.

I’m not taking sides here.  I know I am going to be criticized for siding with the “little guy” vs the big guy.  But I don’t look at things like that. I try and look at things unbiased with no regards to who is on each side.    I am merely saying that accidents happen.  And the resulting compensation needs to reflect the damage caused to a person. I don’t think the damage was all that much.  His time was wasted and maybe a little emotional damage. He was probably pretty excited to see that name in his account.  But it was too good to be true and again, when this is the case, expecting great things is not wise.   Here are today’s names, Click on them for current price

    The funny thing is that if that BrandConsultants.com guy would not have broken the story it might have gone under the radar and the buyer might have got away with it and transferred the name out when the time came. But with all the publicity surrounding the name obviously somebody from Netsol saw this and fixed it.

    If I put the wrong price on a BIN sale at Uniregistry or Afternic for instant transfer, and the sale completes, should Uniregistry or Godaddy reverse the sale for me? Web completed the sale, automated or not, so should honor it. What is to prevent Web or anyone else like them from doing this again if they decide after the fact that the price was $1000 too low, $10,000 too low, $100 too low, etc.? Buyer simply followed Web’s buying process for a listed name, where is the accountability? Selling names then pulling them back out of accounts just because they are a big company who can is pretty dirty. How can anyone trust Web.com if they pull stuff like this.

      You are both correct. As a person that has made mistakes I’ve never been a person that wants to make money on someone’s mistakes. This was a glaring mistake and the person bought it only because it was a mistake. Not a good deal. A mistake. The big company thing means nothing to me. There are humans behind it. Any size company or person who had to the chance to pull the name back would have done the same thing.

      And yes I know. That’s life, that’s business. Mistakes happen and there are repercussions.

    Have to agree with @domains above. Let’s say Google were launching a registrar and they thought they’d go with the generic DomainNames.com, I wonder if the sale would have been reversed then. I’d have sympathy with a granny who listed the name and misplaced a decimal point but not with a company operating in the industry.
