Get 14.3% More value at registrars that don’t have an expired auction process.
I’ve had a good experience with Godaddy over the last several years. I sold my first domain on the premium listings platform.
I don’t want to keep beating on them, but they continue to move away from a domainer friendly registrar and more towards a supply clearing house for inventory that someone else has paid for.
Not to mention the average end user. There is no way in hell I’d keep a domain at Godaddy that I am using or intend to use for business. I would also discourage anybody I know from doing it especially the people that really no nothing about domains.
Look at the Porn extortion that we’ve talked about in the past, where domains with sites on them expire, are auctioned off and then held for ransom with Russian porn.
Even though this is not the intended life cycle of a domain, and negates all the safety measures put in place by ICANN, they can do it. We agree to this when we pay for their service.
Lucky for us there’s numerous options. For example NameBright or Uniregistry, I have names at both. At these registrars we get a full 45 days of auto renew grace, and only 20 at Godaddy before the name can be auctioned.
If you have a large portfolio that is constantly in transition (buying and dropping everyday) these extra days add significant time for a potential sale. In fact last month I paid the redemption fee to renew a name that had sold for several thousand $. The name had been expired for over 2 months.
In fact if my math is correct, you get 14.3% more value out of a domain at these other registrars.
Try and follow my math:
Auto Renew Grace:
Up to 45 days
Godaddy 20 days after Expiration possible loss of domain by Auction bid.
25+30=55 More days of possible sale.
365+20=385 Godaddy Adjusted registration period
14.3% more value
The best solution for Godaddy and for us, is to allow us to auction names through their platform by letting them expire and go through the auction, but that’s another topic that I’ve written about before.
