eName Really (Really, Really) Sucks

Posted on 12 April 2016 by Andrei

I will never ever understand why people keep domains there.

They’re slow to respond, they make moving domains out a hassle and last but certainly not least, they’re uncooperative when it comes to stolen domains, as documented on several occasions on various blogs/forums.

I honestly don’t get why people use this company.

Yes, I know a lot of Chinese investors use it… but why?

Aren’t the Chinese mostly investing in short domains to get money OUT of China? Why not simply use an established international registrar instead… maybe one that doesn’t suck? I think this is certainly a “niche” worth exploring, Westerner registrars should become a lot more China-friendly IMO.

Maybe the Chinese use eName due to a combination between language barrier issues and regulations, I have no idea.

I just wish eName sucked less.

The thought of them now owning gives me goosebumps.

I really hope the Chinese start using other registrars from now on, Western registration companies should follow’s example and focus a lot more on China IMO. Add Chinese support staff, add a Chinese website version and bam, problem solved. I mean humans landed on the moon and we’re now exploring far-away planets, becoming China-friendly doesn’t seem that hard by comparison 🙂

    That’s how things work in China, I see you spamming for liquid domains, I think
    You suck

    I don’t consider it as spam because the names Andrei send through newsletter are worth buying and can be profitable. If you have any issues, simply unsubscribe it.

    @Devan: I’m a flipper (my margins aren’t as impressive as you might think, for example I just lost money on a domain), there would be no reseller market without flippers. If things deteriorate in China and I stop flipping along with everyone else, I’m reasonably confident you’d miss my “spam”… anyway, you’re entitled to an opinion, good luck with your domaining activities

    @AbdulBasit Makrani: thanks for the support, I really appreciate it 🙂
