I like the fact that Rick Schwartz is raising awareness through an appropriate domain, HallofShame.com.
As you can see by taking a look at the website, he basically calls out companies that want to unethically obtain an asset that doesn’t belong to them instead of simply negotiating and trying to buy it from the owner.

The registries (PIR aka Public Interest Registry for dot org and Verisign for dot net) will be increasing the price of dot net and dot org domains as of the 1st of July.
Just thought I’d let you guys know so you can make the proper arrangements.
If you can, try to register/renew/transfer domains before the new prices go live.

The auctions will end today at 5 PM EDT, so if my calculations are correct (I’m not from the US), there’s only about 1 hour and 7 minutes left at the moment of writing.
As mentioned on the 22nd of May, DomainBoardroom.com and Escrow.com, together with Elliot Silver, are organizing a charity auction (everything will be donated to Oklahoma tornado victims) at ElliotsBlog.com.

You can bid on domains as well as all sorts of interesting stuff (click HERE to visit ElliotsBlog.com for the full list) by simply commenting.
Again, click HERE and place your bid by publishing a comment.

It seems GoDaddy is no longer letting you use in-store credits to pay for purchases for which you use certain coupons (again, certain coupons, not all of them). Just thought I’d let you know in case you were wondering why you’re not able to finalize the checkout process.

If you were affected, I think you can contact Groupon and request a refund. The Groupon offer was only valid for people from the US or Canada, so I wasn’t able to take advantage of it but based on what I’m hearing/reading, GoDaddy rejected additional Groupon credits today.
For example, if you bought three $70 credit codes via Groupon and applied them, you’ll only see $70 in your account now instead of $210. If you bought 4 $70 credit codes, you’ll only see $70 in your account instead of $280 and so on.

The good news from VeriSign (news I’m sure you read about earlier this year) is that, as per the stipulations of their new contract, there won’t be any new price increases for dot coms. That’s excellent news for sure but the bad news for next year is that as of the 1st of July 2013, the wholesale price will increase to $5.62, ICANN fee not included.

The dot sx landrush phase started and you can now claim your domain at registrars such as 101Domain. The landrush price over at 101Domain is $49.95 plus a non-refundable $10 application fee, click HERE for more details.
If the .sx domain you went after is not awarded, 101Domain will refund your $49.95 registration fee.

Congrats Andrew! I was browsing TechCrunch and came across their article about Amazon’s potential plans for Casa.com, with DomainNameWire being credited as the source. It’s always nice to come across such posts and it should be obvious to anyone capable of rational thought that our entire industry benefits whenever something like this happens. One step a time, one post at a time, we need to do everything humanly possible to help everyone understand that the domaining industry has its place in the online ecosystem and is here to stay.
