With the DomainFest live auction scheduled to begin in about 10 minutes (10:00am) EST, it appears that some Oversee websites are down. I’ve tried to access Moniker, Snapnames, and even the Oversee corporate website with no luck. For some reason, the auction page on Moniker’s site is working, but the others don’t appear to be working right now.
Fortunately for those who park with Domain Sponsor, it does not appear that the outage is impacting parked pages or the DS website.
I’ve reached out to Oversee spokesman Mason Cole for an update, and I will let you know what I hear. I would imagine the live auction will not start until the website is working, but I will keep you posted.
*** Update from Oversee***
Due to a technical issue, the Moniker Live auction in Barcelona slated for today will not be conducted as scheduled. Our tech team is working to identify and resolve the problem as soon as possible.
Moniker and SnapNames very much regret the inconvenience this has caused our customers. The difficult decision was made in order to protect the integrity of our auctions for both buyers and sellers.
This is annoying. I really hope they fix the problem or change the date. Please keep us posted.
Yeah its down for me ,,,,, i checked earlier at 8am ET and the site was working. Must be a server overload.
Both down for me too.
Spoken like a true dome expert
Of which you are one
Even I’d you had to ask to be annointed
@ Domain expert
LOL… had to be sure of course. My portfolio and bank accounts say I am, but I wanted the blessings of the DCG on DNForum.
What a bummer hope they can get soretd asap.
Any news what the issue is ?
If it is a server overload then it reflects poorly on Oversee imo ..Sounds more like sloppy programming.
Oversee.NET has decided to Not have a rescheduled Live Auction…. it will be conducted Online online…it is actulay in motion now and will end June 15th.
The Extended online auction for domains that did not make the original Live Auction roster will now end on June 22nd.
I’m not sure yet if the Sellers who had names accepted & listed in the “Live” auction have been given the option to withdraw their lots because the “playing field” changed significantly with No Live Auction…which usually creats more bids and auction action.
