Network Solutions Showing Pending Transfer Domains as “Redemption”


Network Solutions has a pretty glaring bug that needs to be addressed. Ordinarily, I would simply report the bug in private and hope it gets fixed, but in this case, I am going to highlight the issue. I want to make sure that others who see this will know it’s not just them and hopefully just a bug that is being addressed.

Earlier this week, I started a transfer of 17 domain names from Network Solutions to GoDaddy. These domain names were all won at NameJet, and I consolidate my portfolio at GoDaddy every few months. The transfers were started, and I approved and confirmed the transfers when I received the email.

Beeple Announces Launch of We.New

The digital artist known as Beeple launched a new NFT platform on a .New new gTLD domain name extension. We.New, which is branded as WENEW, is a platform that appears similar in nature to the NBA TopShot NFT platform. According to Beeple (aka Mike Winkelmann), WENEW will allow people “collect iconic moments in music, sports, comedy, history, etc. on the blockchain.”

Impress Them With Your Domain Names

As he often does, Peter Askew shared a nugget of wisdom about domain name development I can appreciate:

Besides operating this website and Embrace.com, I have pretty much resigned from web development projects. Peter’s comment still resonated to me because I share his sentiment when buying domain names in the aftermarket. When I tell someone I own a particular domain name – be it at a social gathering or professional event – I want the other person to be impressed. I want them to think to themselves – or ask me – how the heck did he get that domain name?!

Cool.com Sold via Saw

One of my favorite domain names has changed hands. Cool.com, which has been owned by Future Media Architects for many years, is pending transfer. The domain name was being brokered by Saw. I reached out to Amanda Waltz and Jeff Gabriel from Saw, and both confirmed that the domain name was sold.

As I recall, Cool.com had a high seven figure price tag. Neither Jeff nor Amanda were able to tell me the acquisition price, which is not a surprise. Commenting on the sale, Jeff said, “I can’t tell you the price but I can say that cool has always had a steady stream of interested buyers and we are excited to see it end up with a buyer who has a great plan.”

B.et Domain Hack Sold for $100k

This morning, NameBio reported that the B.et domain hack was sold for $100,000. I do not know if the domain name was listed for sale via Sedo or if the domain name sold in private and the parties chose to use Sedo for escrow. The domain name was sold by DomainHacks.com via Sedo, according to the tweet:
