If you were bidding (or trying to bid) on any auctions at NameJet yesterday, you should note that all auctions have been extended to today due to a “technical issue.” I wasn’t competing for any names yesterday, but the issue was brought to my attention by Kefah Makhamreh on Twitter:
NameJet Should rerun today’s auctions or at least extend the time. Anyone with similar issues > Please report to @namejet @netsolcares #Domain #domainnames #DomainNameForSale pic.twitter.com/9YR024GIfl

Recognizing the issue, NameJet opted to extend auctions that were supposed to close yesterday. There’s a note on the NameJet website homepage:
Auctions extended notification
Due to the technical issue experienced today, all auctions ending today August 18th, 2022 will be extended to August 19th, 2022 at the normal scheduled time.
This is the second time in the last month that an issue caused NameJet auctions to be extended. Hopefully it’s just a bit of bad luck rather than something that is going to reoccur with any frequency.
