A NamePros post about NameJet caught my eye this morning because I have dealt with the same situation multiple times. In the NamePros post, the thread starter detailed a month-long, unsuccessful effort to get possession of a domain name he won at auction. Presumably, NameJet collected his payment already, so he is out his funds and the domain name.
I try my best to avoid “Public” domain name auctions at NameJet. The domain names in these auctions are privately owned by domain investors or others who wish to sell their domain names rather than expired domain names. NameJet started out as an auction platform for expiry auctions, but it opened up for private sellers several years ago.
