Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday February 15th, 2019

I don’t know what the Hell is up with domain industry’s customer service  in general but something has to change soon.  Over the past year the registrars and other domain service companies are starting to either get overwhelmed or just said F-it to their customers.  I still get good service occasionally but I actually work for most of these companies as a promoter but even I have to send 3 and 4 emails to get a question answered. I don’t even give me the common courtesy of “Got it, let me check”  A simple response to let me know they’ll get back to me.  It’s gotten ridiculous and I can imagine that a person off the street gets even worse treatment.

If Michael Cyger can’t get any help who can? (they did get back to him via twitter where they are the quickest to respond)

Andrew Alleman is the biggest domain news reporter in the biz and he can’t get Namejet to respond?  How does the person who just bought their first name get help?

This is just two examples and there are thousands more.  I am paid by both of these organization to help promote names  but they have to help themselves when it comes to service.  JT of Namejet can’t do it all himself.  I’m hoping gives him the staff to get things fixed in a timely manner.  But I don’t have a choice but to email him directly.  Dave Evanson of Sedo doesn’t need to be handling my questions.  He’s there to sell domains not be handing off customer service problems.

I own a business.  I know that customer service is often traded for a cheaper price.  I know people will say “I’ve been with so and so and they ALWAYS get back to me quickly.   That’s because you’re in the right side of 50/50. The 50% they actually help.  If you sell a product it is the responsibility of the company to provide the service necessary to use that product.  It’s not being done in many companies in the industry and they need to step up their game.  I’ve only pointed out two because of recent tweets.  They are no worse or better than any other company and there are plenty more guilty parties.   I used to feel that our industry was saturated. I’m starting to think the opposite.  We’re ripe for the picking for a new person to come in and do it right.  Like South Korea’s infrastructure compared to the US.  Sometimes its best to build new rather than upgrade old stuff. Here are today’s names. Make sure to click on the names to see the current price and to help DSAD continue writing each day.


Quote of the Day:  Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.” – James Baldwin

Domain of the Day:   Perfect name for a marketing company or someone in our industry. The price reflects it

Namejet, Sedo, and other Names Up for Auction   Previously sold for $5600.   Reserve is at $XXX.    Up is a good positive brand word  Met reserve at $200.  Such a good name for so many visual and audio related businesses,,  and  All amazing names but going to take some work to get to reserve Met reserve at $90.  Sounds like a nice place to work  A bit long but hard to make the term shorter  At $70.  I’ll take it at that  It looks like its going to meet reserve.

Godaddy Domains With Multiple Bids  Sweet as in candy or sweet as an adjective for good   LLLL.coms are starting to trend down.  Hard to disagree with endusers not buying them as much as in the past.  Of course I only have myself to go on so I could be wrong   Its a much better brand when capitalized correctly.  I had it as KeenOn at first   A license plate name.  i.e. a name that someone would use as an email or personal blog  Probably saw its peak with the movie release   we all know what it is but are we going to name our company or product this?  Best brand for the money on the board in my opinion.  At least at this point in my list work  Tech brand people  are the WORST spellers  Self Publishing site but it does feel like a site that will take advantage of new writers by overcharging and overpromising.  I’m hard on the site and its not even open yet.  I need to take a nice pill   I feel like I’ve already had a coffee there  A bit long but canna seeds are a new market for rec growers  Love to eat it but not sure I want to own the domain   Has a very nice opening bid.  400 views shows people have been looking. 360 and 365 have become very popular naming keywords over the years.   Pretty much every phone on Ebay  Good short 6L brand   A good mode to get in to.  And not a bad brand   Sounds like a brand from 2007  not the measurement of pepper heat but sounds like it

Godaddy Domains With One or No Bids  One bidder at $10.  There’s a billion dollar company name Intuitive Surgical that makes a cool device called The DaVinci  A lot of traders trade of charts Learn how to master virtual reality Might as well figure out Social media as well   Sounds like a book or a Lifetime movie  You noticed I’m into 365, 360 names right now. But that doesn’t give them great value so don’t email me  Surprised Alabama sports hasn’t purchased this one  All travel sites in one site

  1. Tan Tran owes a lot of people money, his phone # is disconnected, and he doesn’t answer his emails. I have to send a skip tracer to California now to track his ass down.

    Look at Sedo’s chat hours,
    Open 1 hour per
    Week on Saturday’s from 9am-10am.
    Closed every other day, patheic.

    NameJet flip a coin if you get your call answered, or voicemail.

    Same with never answer their phone, voicemail we are in a team meeting.

    Service is not important in this industry I guess, stop supporting these companies, send a message.

  2. I have inside information that Sedo is now being run by a lazy teenage stoner living in his mom’s basement.

    These are their posted livechat hours of operation (no joke – check yourself):

    Monday – Friday: Closed
    Saturday: 09:00 PM – 10:00 PM EST
    Sunday: Closed
    It is currently Friday, Feb 15, 2019 09:31 AM EST

  3. Lately I have won some names at the Namescon auction and I have wired the money to Namejet. I opened a support ticket to let them know that the payment has been wired and they need to confirm it. But there was no response, but their automatic emails keep on coming asking me to wire the money and they kept on charging my credit card in between, the amount was above 10K. After 2 days I emailed JT and Scott for a reply even though JT opened the email there was no response and Scott cared for a reply.
    He gave me an email address saying to contact them and I did and after 2 days there was no response of any kind. I updated the support system and there was an automatic update about how you should wire the money. Al last I emailed JT again and he responded that he will look into it. After some hours he confirmed that they have the payment.
    Customer service is a joke for Namejet
