Government Agency Drops NOAA.com Domain Name

NOAA.com is one of the most popular upcoming pending delete domain name auctions at NameJet. The domain name expired on March 3, 2022 and is now in pending delete status. There are currently 24 bids on this domain name, and there are a little more than three days remaining until it works its way through the expiry process and fully deletes.

Right of the Dot (ROTD), the company founded by Monte Cahn, will be hosting an auction featuring domain names and NFTs in a month from now. According to a press release that was distributed today, ROTD is now seeking submissions for the online auction. The auction will be held on February 24, 2022 on the HiBid.com auction platform.

For those who are interested in selling domain names via the auction, the ROTD website has information about submitting domain names for consideration. The criteria for domain names the auctioneers are seeking is listed on the home page. I don’t see information about fees, exclusivity, or other details, so you’ll need to connect with the ROTD team to find out that important information.

After seeing several of the domain names transfer to new registrants (including Operate.com) I reached out to Newfold Digital (parent of NameJet and SnapNames) to ask for a list of the top sales that have closed. Here are the top 12 sales from the Thought Convergence auctions:

Yesterday afternoon, I had a tough time visiting NameJet’s website. It seemed that every time I tried to visit an auction page or my control panel, I saw an error message. I frequently saw that NameJet Maintenance landing page, which I asked others about on Twitter:

I heard from others who had the same issues accessing auctions yesterday afternoon. Later on in the day, NameJet’s sister platform, SnapNames, posted an update about the issues on Twitter:
