NameJet to Extend Bidding on Some Auctions That Ended Today

I just received an email from NameJet technical support to inform me that some auctions that ended today are going to be extended an additional 24 hours due to a technical issue. I assume that most participants impacted by this will receive the same email I received, but I am publishing it in the event that isn’t the case.

In total, 50 auctions are being extended by 24 hours. If you were involved in an auction that is being extended,  it will show up in your active auction list. I can’t recall the last time this happened at NameJet.

Here’s the email I received:


Please be advised there was an intermittent technical issue with one server during the closing minutes of a few auctions today.

As a result, in fairness to any bidder that was attempting to place a last minute bid, we will re-run the private auctions for all participants.   All bidders will be included with their last accepted bid amount.

The domains to be restarted are listed below.   If you were in one or more of these auctions, you will see the domain on your list of active auctions, with the new closing date/time posted later today. These auctions will have a 24-hour extension, and close on Thursday, July 17, 2014.
