We all know that no registrar is perfect, they all have there own unique pros and cons. Sometimes it’s just a glitch and other times it’s something that really needs to be fixed.
For months I’ve been trying to get an answer out of Uniregistry about a few things. I got a few different answers on my inquiries, so I finally asked again. First and most recently my Uni app stopped working. I can’t go any farther than logging in, at which point it tells me there are agreements that need to be acknowledged. Apparently this needs to be fixed by some sort of super hacker as they’ve been investigating the cause for about a week now. The speculation is a domain somewhere in my account needs me to agree to something or other. I’m not really sure why it can’t be tracked and fixed, why there’s no other notification on the site and why this causes the app not to work. Couldn’t I just agree to whatever the hell it is on the app?
The next question I’ve had since the Uniregistry sales platform transition from DNS, is that ability to mark a domain as sold. The platform is set up like the old Domain Name Sales so that an investor can manage leads either personally or through a broker. You can make notes on the domains, purchase price, things like that. The only thing you can’t do is mark the domain as “sold” if they don’t sell it. I just received confirmation that this is indeed not possible to do.
Another thing that drives me crazy is the default landing page setup. Most of my domains have PPC parking with the sales banner at the top. You cannot have both of these things by default, it’s either or. There’s no setting in the account defaults, so you have to go back in and change all the domains after they’re added and accepted.
Godaddy isn’t getting off the hook. Their bulk domain checker “fix” is complete crap. It’s caused me all kinds of problems recently and really isn’t checking anything in real time. If I run a group of domains through the checker, then select the ones available, go to the cart and check out, then rerun the checker, the names I just bought will still be marked as available. If I add them back to the cart and go to check out, the whole cart including anything else you had in the cart will be deleted.
Basically what’s happening is that a throttle has been put in place. Not only will domains I’ve already purchased still show up when checked again, but it’s not actually “checking” any other domain that you’ve previously checked. Say for example it’s 2PM eastern time and you’re trying to hand catch some names off the drop. The first time you run names through the bulk checker it will internally save the results and give you the same output for about 5 minutes. This is why already purchased names show up and names I know have dropped and are available don’t show up until the throttle period is over. It’s laughable that the captcha is still there after so many searches, because the bulk checker isn’t actually doing anything.
And finally everyone’s favorite reseller Netfirms. I try not to get angry at a support tech who’s just doing their job, not matter how shitty of a company they’re working for, but when you sit there and lie to me it pisses me off. I recently tried to transfer some names out of netfirms, which usually is very easy. Before I transferred them I had to change the email on the whois, I selected all the domains, went to the bulk edit function, clearly identified the 60 day opt out transfer restriction was checked and updated the email.
To make a long story short, the bulk update did not work. All the names came back as opted in to the 60 day transfer restriction. When I contacted support they told me “You need to opt out of the 60 day lock” yeah no shit genius. I told them I did that and there was something wrong, their answer was to change the email to something else, then change it back to what I want with the opt out box checked. I did this again and it still didn’t work. Turns out you have to change the contact info individually, the bulk editor doesn’t work.
When I told them I found the issue they first denied there was anything wrong, then they told me again that I didn’t check the box, then they said the bulk editor doesn’t even have that feature. I started to lose my mind at this point, this dude was telling me it was my fault and telling me I was seeing imaginary opt out boxes in the bulk editor, he was lying right to my virtual chat support box face. I politely disagreed with his assessment and told him I would fix the issue myself. I’m joking, I told him he worked for the worst registrar in the world, that I hoped his house burned down and that he should have:
“His head smashed in
And his heart cut out
And his liver removed
And his bowls unplugged
And his nostrils raped
And his bottom burnt off”
Calm down, just a little Monty Python “Brave Sir Robin” humor.
