IKE’S LIST OF DOMAINS AT AUCTION FOR Saturday, December 16th

Dec 16 2017


Escrow.com

I’ve been curious to see how Godaddy was going to handle the expired auction process to avoid domain renewals or transfers, thus ending the auction.

In November Godaddy sent out an email stating that they were shortening the grace period and advised their customers that the domains couldn’t be transferred or renewed after that time period.

My first thought was, “how the hell are they going to do that?” and my second was, “well that doesn’t seem accurate, what about redemption?”  So we all know about the domain life cycle right? The domain Sherpa has a whole article outlining the process, but for a quick review:

-The registration period of 1 year

-Expiration

-Auto renew grace with variable time depending on the registrar,

-Redemption for 45 days. This was designed as the fail safe so you wouldn’t lose your domain. A fee is required payable to Verisign to get the name out of redemption. Verisign actually puts a limit of $80 or $40 depending on the time of the year, for this fee. Many registrars charge a surplus despite the cap, I assume they’re calling is something else behind the scenes.

-Pending Delete for 5 days

-The drop starting at 14:00 Eastern Time. The name becomes available to the fastest drop catcher

So the inaccurate part of the Godaddy statement is that you can still renew your domain when it’s in redemption. But now there’s apparently a window of time that you will not be able to renew or transfer the domain, while the name goes through the auction.

I wasn’t sure how this would work, as you should still be able to renew or transfer a domain in Auto Renew grace. I mean if ICANN set up a fail safe redemption time period the intent was certainly to allow the registrant the ability to renew the domain at any time up until that point.

Godaddy isn’t going to let a name that is going through the auction to enter Redemption because they would also have to pay the fee to Verisign. So where is the domain when it’s in auction? It’s in the ether, in the “upside down” (if you’ve watched Stranger things) where you can’t renew it.

I figured out today that what they are doing is putting the name into pending transfer once the domain has a bid and is guaranteed to sell. This places the name in a holding pattern where it is no longer in Grace but hasn’t reached Redemption. It’s not really in pending transfer since it’s staying at Godaddy and it could be that some names are actually in some other status that I haven’t found.

As far as domains that do not have a bid, I don’t know how they are restricting the users ability to transfer or renew as the domain remains in the Grace period. As I’ve said, the domain can be renewed once it hits redemption.

Godaddy obviously makes a ton of money on the auction process, it’s free money. They have to weigh that against the customers that are using their other services, like hosting a personal or business site. These people will have no idea what’s going on. I think more of them will lose their domains and not be happy with Godaddy.

It’s complicated enough for domainers to figure out and understand the domain life cycle, the average domain using customer will be clueless.

    Question is did lil wayne buy his domain back ? (as it wasnt me this time)… because he would of had to buy back through auction and then that breaks their own rules as they clearly state you cannot bid on your own domains…

    Anyway it went for over $6k.

    .
    Let me preface this by saying that I’m not saying I’m in agreement or disagreement (much much longer and complicated story .. lol) .. just stating what I think are facts:
    .
    1- I’m pretty sure Registry Redemption was never intended for the actual owner to have a last chance to renew (was just an extra). The real reason for Registry Redemption was to create a “blackout period” .. for webpages and even more importantly e-mails to deliberately bounce and not resolve. So that people visiting and/or sending emails could not be tricked into thinking the information being shared was that of the original owner .. or more importantly .. be tricked into sending important/private/sensitive data via email.
    .
    Obviously with the advent of “expiration auctions” domains now get reclaimed and reused before redemption thus circumventing those supposed security protocols anyways. Not sure why this was never addressed … but hey .. I’m also not sure why we’re paying for 365 days renewal when we only actually get 323 days .. always pissed me off that our renewal date wasn’t from the day we actually get the domain in our account! But again .. that’s a different battle! lol
    .
    2- The domains in question simply disappear from our accounts. Call it another case of colossal GoDaddy incompetence when it comes to communications (their automated emails are just a raging disaster .. lol). You’d think that at the very least they would send you an email .. but no .. nothing .. zilch .. nada .. the domain simply disappears from your account!
    .
    3- In all of these discussions I think a lot of people confusingly refer to the $80 fee goDaddy and other registrars change you as a “Redemption Fee” .. but the fact is that before (and possibly including) day 42 or 43, it’s simply a “Renewal Fee” that 100% goes into GoDaddy’s pockets.

    Thanks for the informative GD redemption post. Always a good reminder but things do change. I know a while ago it was 25 days after expiration date that we could still renew at GD. Now I believe it is 28 days.
    .
    Just won a domain today at GD and here is the whois details
    .
    Registrant Contact Information:
    Name
    Expiry Assignment Service
    Organization
    Afternic, LLC – On Behalf of Domain Owner
    .
    I still don’t know if previous owner can possibly renew the domain by paying that $80 fee so I will not mention it. I will just wait til it hits my account.
    .
    That is one of my biggest pet peeves in this industry. The domain expiration auctions. It always will make no sense to me that registrars can auction off domains that are not available. Where else in this world does that happen? Makes no sense.

    1. Ategy

      .
      If the name was originally a GoDaddy name .. then it’s going to be in your account in about 7 days as the original owner can no longer renew it.
      .
      However if it was only registered with one of their “registrar partners” .. then it could still be renewed or transferred.

    2. Ategy

      If you’re a “VIP” type client (meaning I think anybody with a dedicated rep), then you have up to 25 days and not pay the $80 (not 100% sure if you need to contact your rep directly or not). Otherwise for “normal” clients it’s 12 or 18 or something like that.
