When GoDaddy announced the Afternic to Uni transition, I was notified I would need to change any Uni-related nameservers I use. I was curious about what would happen to domain names utilizing the InternetTraffic.com nameservers that didn’t get changed.
Several domain names I previously sold maintained the nameservers I had been using after their sale. Obviously, the buyers of these domain names would not receive these notifications. I presume some wouldn’t care considering they did not update the nameservers on their own following their acquisitions.
Knowing this, I visited a couple of these domain names today to see where they would resolve nearly a month after the April 18th transition deadline.
Instead of displaying PPC links monetized by GoDaddy, they now forward to a page within the Afternic website stating “This domain may be for sale.” The landing page has a phone number to call but it does not have a form to fill out. At the top of the landing page is a GoDaddy logo.
If you used Uni-related nameservers and did not update them prior to the transition deadline, you might want to revisit that decision.
