Earlier today, SnapNames announced that the price of backorders would be increasing from $69 to $79. Because of the company’s partnership with NameJet (and the fact that both have relationships with Web.com), I wondered if NameJet would also be increasing pricing in line with SnapNames’ price increase.
Unfortunately for those of us who bid on NameJet, the answer is yes on pending delete auctions. In a comment posted in the SnapNames article, here’s what NameJet Marketing Director Scott Pruitt said:
“On the NameJet side, the price increase will apply only to Pending Delete names. Registrar expiry and private inventory offered on NameJet will not be affected.”
I believe that NameJet will be sending an email to its customers to officially announce this price change. When I receive my email, I will update this article and publish the email I receive.
