Uni-Parked Domains Now “may be for sale”

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.

  1. Do people really call?
    Do people really answer their phone calls ?
    99%of the calls go to voicemail unless you know who is calling.
    People prefer to text .

  2. All of my recently migrated Uni names are displaying this lander, even after adding the NS verification code as per instructed from Afternic? Annoying.

  3. @Mr. Bond- 99.999999% of the people do not like to talk on the phone with strangers…contactless human relationship

    If you text me and if I feel like chewing your A****ss off, I can call you.
