I have heard and read quite a few complaints about the difficulty in privately listing domain names for sale on NameJet. From what I understand, the company has not added on many private sellers for a variety of reasons, with the primary reason being the lack of a user interface for sellers to observe their auctions and payment status.
Upon logging in to my account today (after clearing my cache for another reason), I had to agree to an updated terms of service, dated December 3,
2015. Once I passed that page, I noticed a new header within my account “List Your Domains on NameJet,” and underneath the header, there is a message that says “Apply to have your domains listed on NameJet’s exclusive auction platform.”
According to NameJet General Manager Jonathan Tenenbaum, “we have added this link to make it easier for domain holders to submit their names for consideration in listing at auction. We spend a good amount of time fielding offers so we wanted to make it a bit easier for the listers and for ourselves.” This automated submission process is more efficient for all parties, and is a big improvement from the process NameJet had previously.
When a user clicks the link, it takes them to a submission page, on which they are invited to “Enter up to 15 of your top domain names for consideration.” The list will then be submitted to NameJet management for their review. I do not know what qualities the company is looking for, but I presume they are only seeking higher quality domain names that have the best chance of selling on their platform.
Whether or not NameJet is becoming more liberal with their submission acceptance or not, I think this is a better way to manage submission from clients. Previously, people had to send in a support ticket in order to get their domain names reviewed, and this is a more streamlined submission process. Additionally, this process should better allow NameJet to vet prospective sellers since the process is contained within the existing account control panel.
