NameJet Makes a Typo

It looks like NameJet made a typo on an email and Twitter marketing promotion this morning. The company announced that “INVESTOR路COM” is for sale in a tweet as well as in an email to customers signed up for its mailing list. Here’s the tweet today:

From what I can tell, Investor.com (investor.com for clarity) is not for sale on NameJet or on any venue. It looks like Investor.com is a fully developed website, and I do not see anything that would indicate the domain name is currently up for sale or auction. In fact, when I visit the link on NameJet, it says “Wish List – No Current Auction.”

It appears that Lnvestor.com is in auction on NameJet. When the “L” is lowercase, it can look like a capital I. After looking at the NameJet homepage, it looks like all NameJet auction listings are lowercase to avoid confusion, but it can still happen.

I reached out to NameJet about this a few minutes ago. Assuming this is an error (and not my error), hopefully they will send out a corrected tweet and email to ensure customers are not confused.

Update: NameJet tweeted a correction this afternoon:

  1. Thanks for the heads up Elliot. NameJet inadvertently published a newsletter and social media posts for the name INVESTOR.COM. The actual name is LNVESTOR.COM. We are in the process of publishing a correction and apologize for the confusion.

  2. As the winning bidder on ltalian.com some years back (Ltalian.com versus italian.com) I’m unhappy to hear this kind of nonsense is still happening, because I think the domain sellers are intentionally trying to deceive. But I will say it’s good to know NJ is doing right by their reaction post-accident in isolated instances like this (i.e. they worked with me to issue a refund for the bid).
