0

In early September, I saw that Sedo domain broker Derick Clegg was brokering the sale of Confirm.com. When I inquired about buying the domain name, he told me they were in the agreement stage of a deal and couldn’t tell me the asking price as a result. Derick later reported that domain name was sold:

DAN Shares Updated Monthly Stats

Jag Singh retweeted a DAN.com tweet from July of 2018 that shared the prior week’s sales stats and a bit of additional details about the sales that were closed on the platform:

Register.com: Remove the “Security Lock” Before Transfer

I just went through a frustrating time suck dealing with two outbound transfers at Register.com, and now that it has been resolved, I want to share it with you in case you come across the same issue.

As you may have heard, the Internet Commerce Association is urging its members and domain registrants to comment about potential price increases for .com domain names. It’s not just the ICA that is warning constituents about the potential for increased pricing on .com domain names.

Early this morning, I received an email from Dynadot with the subject “Important Industry Updates.” The email, presumably sent to all of the company’s customers, informs them of the .com contract amendment that would allow for price increases, and it lets customers know where they can comment to ICANN to oppose the increases.
