Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday March 24th



The gTLDs are causing a big problem in the auction market.  In order for an auction to proceed a buyer needs to know exactly what the cost to renew is.   And as I’ve stated before, not even the registrars know what the next renewal is going to cost on a high percentage of the names.  I think it is very important for an auction to contain the renewal cost for the upcoming renewal in the auction page.  But nobody is.  Travis and I were going to set up a site and an API for people to draw off for things exactly like this.  But it can’t be done.  Turns, out many registrars are literally calling to the registries to find out what the cost is on some domains and getting back to their clients.  Add in registries changing their prices on the fly with a few months noticed and it turns bidding on a gTLD to a game of guesses.  Its all so ridiculous and reason #238 why the aftermarket in New Gs has been bad.  Here are today’s names Click for current price
