Posted on 16 April 2014 by Andrei

Not bad! According to RegistrarStats.com, there were 19,954 dot link registrations yesterday. Dot photo also did well, with 5,196 registrations and the same thing can be said about dot gift (4,392 registrations yesterday). Dot pics didn’t do as well as dot photo but still, it got 2,210 registrations on the first day of general availability. Dot guitars however only got 346 registrations and represents the worst performer out of the 5 Uniregistry new gTLDs which just went live.

HallofShame.com

Posted on 08 September 2013 by Andrei

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.

Dot Net and Dot Org Price Hikes

Posted on 14 June 2013 by Andrei

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.

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.

GoDaddy Disallowing In-Store Credit Use with Certain Coupons

Posted on 17 January 2013 by Andrei

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.

GoDaddy Rejecting Additional Groupon Credits

Posted on 05 January 2013 by Andrei

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.

Dot Net Price Increase

Posted on 25 December 2012 by Andrei

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.

Oh well :)
