Uniregistry Now Accepting Topcoin

12




According to a tweet from Uniregistry founder Frank Schilling, Uniregistry is now accepting Topcoin to pay for domain registrations across all extensions. By the end of the day today, Topcoin can also be used for inbound domain transfers and renewals across all extensions. I was told company will soon accept the cryptocurrency to pay for premium domain names offered by the registry, such as registry reserved .Link, .Help, .Property and other domain names.

I was told "Uniregistry customers receive 50% of their purchase in topcoin at no additional charge when they buy, transfer or renew a domain name. They can redeem 20-35% of registration, transfer or renewal purchases in Topcoin. Early in the new year you will be able to redeem up to 100% of premium domain name purchases in Topcoin."

Topcoin (TPC) is a cryptocurrency that → Read More


Easily Delete Unregistered Domain Names from DNS Account

0

I use Domain Name Sales as a domain name lead management tool, in addition to the parking platform. One issue I run into is deleting domain names from my account after they expire. With all the marketing emails from my registrars, I don't know exactly when they expire, and I don't generally track my expired names as closely as I should.

If I do not delete the expired domain names from my account, they will still be syndicated for sale on the DNS platform and partners like DomainTools. One concern I have is that I could accidentally sell a domain name that I no longer own. It's a good practice to double check the Whois before negotiating, but that wouldn't be applicable for domain names that have BIN prices, and checking the Whois on a domain name is one of those things that can be overlooked in the excitement of negotiating a deal.

This morning, I found  a pretty easy solution to the issue, and it (more…) → Read More


Uniregistry Domain Names Now at GoDaddy

0

Uniregistry has been selling its new gTLD domain names since the end of February of this year,  but they have not been selling them via GoDaddy, the largest domain name registrar in the world. According to a tweet from Uniregistry founder Frank Schilling, as of yesterday, new gTLD domain names managed by Uniregistry are now available for purchase by customers at GoDaddy.




I checked, and GoDaddy is now selling Uniregistry extensions like .link, .sexy, .tattoo, .blackfriday, .guitars, and others. The pricing seems comparable to other registrars, although the prices are more expensive than buying the domain names directly from Uniregistry (not taking any discounts into consideration).

In February of this year, Kevin Murphy of DomainIncite.com wrote an article about "why registrars are boycotting .sexy" and other Uniregistry new gTLD domain → Read More


Uniregistry is Still Hiring

0

By now, I am sure you heard about the two big Uniregistry hirings this past week. Uniregistry hired Vern Jurovich as its Chief Operating Officer, and the company also  hired Michael Ward as its Director of Registrar Operations. Both of these individuals have considerable experience in the domain name space, and these hirings make sense for the company as it competes for talent with several other growing domain industry companies.

In addition to these two hirings,  Uniregistry also has other job opportunities for qualified individuals. According to its  career page, Uniregistry is looking to hire employees in the following areas: (more…) → Read More


Frank Schilling Comments on .London

12

This morning on Twitter, Uniregistry's Frank Schilling commented on the successful .London domain name launch. As you can see below, Frank said, "35,000 .london names is a great start! It's only day 1 and nobody knows what these things are! That's all gonna change."




I think Frank is right. Out of those 35,000 domain names, I think (more…) → Read More


Will There Be Plural / Singular New gTLDs in Round 2

12

I think it's pretty safe to assume that ICANN will eventually approve a second round of new gTLD applications. I don't know when round 2 will happen, but if I was going to place a wager, I would bet there will be at least one subsequent round of applications. I was thinking about what types of new extensions might make up the applications since most of the "good" ones are probably already assigned or awaiting approval.

I had a thought that some new gTLD registries might apply for the plural or singular version of the registries they already manage. For example, perhaps Uniregistry could potentially apply for .Links or the .Club registry could apply for .Clubs. It certainly wouldn't make sense in many cases, but I could see a few reasons for it.
