About a year ago I transferred a bunch of names to Dotster and Netfirms because they has a $1.99 registrations and transfers plus 20% off of that with the right code. It was one of those things you knew would be painful, but you do it anyway because of the savings.
They are apart of the Afternic fast transfer program so at least there’s that. I reached the point dealing with these registrars that I was going to let anything I had registered there expire, if I liked the name I could always try and pick them up again in the drop.
Then they were added to the Godaddy expired auctions lineup, making it a hell of alot easier for someone to pick it up before it drops. Previously I think these names went to Snapnames, and no one wanted to pay $79 for them.
They also send me a change of registrant email after the domain goes through auction. At first it was a “please approve the account change” email, so I always denied it just to mess with them, don’t know if it worked or not. Now it’s just a notice that your domain has changed accounts.
There only seem to be 2 buyers buying the names, I assume at closeouts. BuyDomains and someone using a gmail address of BuysDomains, I have no idea if they’re related.
I’m curious if they’re using an algorithm to pick up the domains in auction or closeouts, I assume so. In any case, I decided to write about this, because as I was picking the list today I found that a large number of the names I was picking were my own damn names. So I decided to go in and renew a few of them. Renewing them cost me $18 at Dotster and $14 at Netfirms, If I hadn’t been lazy and more willing to deal with these stellar registrars I could have transferred them out before the auction. I could even try that now, but I’d end up swearing at the help desk tech that tells me that I can’t transfer them out. By the time they made the ticket to get me the auth codes the auction would be over and they would push the domain into the winner’s account.
That is also another important point to note, I’m pretty sure that names are pushing right after the auction or after they’re bought in closeouts. In the past they went through the whole predetermined time period before they would leave your account.
So I apologize if there’s a name listed that I own and renewed.
