I Like the Idea of Uniregistry’s Domain Liquidity

On its recently launched blog, Uniregistry announced a new initiative called “Domain Liquidity.” I like the concept of this, and I think it has a great deal of potential for domain investors who hold valuable domain name assets that they would like to liquidate in an easy and secure manner.

Here’s what the company announced in a blog post over the (US) holiday weekend:

Two More Keynotes Added to NamesCon Europe

NamesCon Europe added two additional keynote speakers to the agenda today. Frank Schilling, founder of Uniregistry, and professional surfer João de Macedo will be delivering keynote addresses during next month’s conference in Portugal. NamesCon previously announced the conference panel topics, as well as a keynote from another professional surfer, Andrew Cotton.

Here’s the information that was shared about the two keynotes in a newsletter sent this morning:

Uniregistry Looking to Hire Domain Broker

Uniregistry is looking to hire a domain broker. The company posted a job opportunity on LinkedIn and is seeking to hire an Inside Sales Representative on its Domain Brokerage team. This domain broker job will be based out of the company’s Grand Cayman office, and a relocation package is offered to all new employees.

As one would expect with a domain name brokerage job opening, the candidate needs to be great at sales. Here’s more about the opportunity directly from the job listing:

Uniregistry Now Owns DomainNames.com

Two weeks ago, Frank Schilling was the winner of the NamesCon auction for DomainNames.com after Network Solutions decided to list the domain name for sale in auction. The DomainNames.com domain name sold for $370,000, and the majority of readers thought this was a good buy. The sale of DomainNames.com was one of the largest sales in the 2019 NamesCon live auction.

DomainNames.com has been owned by Network Solutions, and the company put this domain name up for sale in the NamesCon auction earlier this week. One of the highlights of the live was the sale of DomainNames.com for $370,000. The winning bidder in the auction was Uniregistry founder Frank Schilling.

Jordi Gasull, founder of NameAgency.com, shared a video of the auction. With his permission, I am sharing the auction video with you:

Uniregistry to Launch “Greatest Product” on November 27

Uniregistry is gearing up to launch the “greatest product” the company has ever built, according to a tweet from Uniregistry Founder and CEO Frank Schilling:

The company is set to launch this product on November 27, which is about three weeks away. Frank did not offer any clues about what the product is or who will benefit from the product.

It’s interesting to see Frank make such a big statement about a launch. I thought the Uniregistry market and its Domain Name Sales platform was pretty helpful. I have been using it less because I manage my own leads now, but when I was using it I thought it was quite good.

If you have any guesses about what type of product will be launching or the market it will serve, be my guest. My two (obvious) guesses would be that the product is either related to selling domain names or something to do with the new gTLD domain names.

We shall see in a few weeks.
