One of the things Frank Schilling discussed during his NamesCon keynote was the introduction of Uniregistry Market. To be totally honest, I didn’t attend the keynote and can’t tell you much about Uniregistry Market yet, but as with anything new that is introduced by Frank, the interest level is high.
Earlier today, the company opened up Uniregistry Market for beta testing, and there was significant interest. The company has now closed the queue for testers because of the high response rate.
Here’s what Uniregistry Marketing Manager Rebecca Junck told me this afternoon:
The queue opened this morning for early access testers for the Uniregistry Market. We’ve had such an overwhelming response to our call for testers that we’ve had to close the queue, and we still have a few people in our support ticketing queue that we’ll try to get in later this week. We won’t be able to let anyone else in until the Market goes live to the public on February 1st.
In looking at the landing page for Uniregistry Market, it looks like the company aims to build a domain name sales marketplace. This makes sense given the number of names on the platform and within Frank’s own portfolio.
I am looking forward to the end of beta testing so that I can check it out myself. If you are a beta tester (and didn’t have to sign a NDA), I hope you’ll share your thoughts. If a signed NDA was required to be a tester, I guess we will have to wait a couple of weeks to try it out.
