If you want to get down to it we can can find huge faults and issues with every single domain company. Namejet and Godaddy both have major issues that would be a 10 page article. DropCatch/Huge Domains uses your money from the drops to bid against you at Godaddy to refill the portfolio. Literally beating you with your own money. But we need Namejet,Godaddy, and DropCatch to give us a ready supply of domains to fill our portfolio. With public Whois disappearing its becoming more and more difficult to find and buy domains from people that aren’t actively looking to sell. Expiring auctions bring those to the surface. That being said the companies like Namejet and Godaddy that were built many years ago are sitting on platforms that are less than ideal. But good enough to get the names we want. Just a little to a lot of frustration along the way.
Dan.com is like the South Korea of domain investing. I say South Korea because if you look at their technology infrastructure its superior to most of the world because its new. The US is being built on leftovers from WWII. Dan.com is similar to South Korea. Built recently so it can be built with modern, flexible coding. Made for today’s needs and wants. Sounds like a paid ad for Dan but really its just the advantages of coming in late. You get to see the problems of others and improve them with fresh coding.
But Dan helps me sell domains not buy them. Namejet, Godaddy, and DropCatch help me buy them. Buying domains is easy. Buying good domains is not. There are millions of bad domains that drop/expire for every 100 worth owning. So while I do publicly admit my frustration, overall I am very thankful they are there. I need them there, good code or bad. Of course I’m hoping they change their code to good at some point
