In April, I wrote an article about the Wooot.com UDRP that was filed by the company behind the popular Woot.com website. Surprisingly to me, the UDRP panelist ruled in favor of the complainant, but instead of giving the domain name to Woot, it was canceled. By canceling the domain name, it would go through the expiration process and then become available for re-registration.
I just received my daily email from NameJet announcing the day’s 50 Most Active Pending Delete Backorders. On today’s list, I noticed Wooot.com listed. The domain name currently has 6 bids with a price of $69. Potential bidders must place their back orders for this domain name by July 1 in order to participate in the domain auction.
Of course any buyer should be aware of the previous UDRP filing and ruling. Woot doesn’t want someone else to own it, and they may take legal action in order to get it.
