Stay on Top of Your NameJet Wins

When you win a domain auction, the domain name should be pushed to your registrar account within a reasonable amount of time after paying. Based on some recent experience at NameJet, domain buyers should keep track of their NameJet auction wins to ensure the domain names are properly provisioned.

On April 23rd, I won a private auction at NameJet. I try my hardest to stay away from private auctions at NameJet and think I do a good job of avoiding them. I particularly liked this one and the price was right. On May 4th, I realized I had not yet received the domain name and submitted a support ticket to NameJet. NameJet support responded to me quickly, and by May 5th, the domain name was transferred to my Network Solutions account.

The Dot-Spanning Brand

If a company is going to use a non .com extension, it will serve the business well to incorporate the extension into the brand name. Spanning the dot with the brand name will help hammer home that the extension is part of corporate branding. This should help reduce consumer confusion when they want to visit the website or connect with the company online.

TechCrunch published an article this morning about a company called A.Team. As you can see, the company is using a .Team domain name and its brand name spans the dot:

When a Dan.com Buyer Doesn’t Start the Transfer

One of the things I like about using Dan.com to sell domain names is its automated transfer process. When I sell a domain name via Dan, they immediately asked me if I would like to push the domain name to their account at GoDaddy or send them the authorization code for an outbound transfer to their preferred registrar. It helps expedite transfers and deal closings since we don’t have to wait for a transfer agent to start the transfer manually.

Occasionally when I select the transfer option, instead of initiating the transfer to its preferred registrar, Dan will send the authorization code to the buyer who has already paid. In doing this, the buyer needs to start the transfer process on his or her own rather than having Dan start the transfer. This can cause a bit of lag time if the buyer is slow to initiate the transfer.
