Register.com Selects IDNNewsletter as the Exclusive Broker For its IDN Portfolio

For those of you who wanted more detail on the above banner...

Register.com has decided to open the vault and sell a select portion of its IDN in-house portfolio names to the general public. It chose IDNNewsletter.com as the exclusive domain brokerage platform for this sale. Among the names that will be up for sale are ラブ.com ("Love" in Japanese) and כיף.com ("Fun" in Hebrew"). The IDNNewsletter / Register.com launch is planned for the first week of May and will only be available to IDNNewsletter.com subscribers.

That's right. Probably Friday. Keep your eye on your inbox as these are priced to sell and the first to respond will get them.

Re: Register.com Selects IDNNewsletter as the Exclusive Broker For its IDN Portfolio

Is the portfolio inhouse (i.e. registered & held as own investments by Register.com itself) or it is collection from various registrants who registered the names in Register.com?

It's a "house" portfolio, meaning the names are owned by the registrar (register.com) themselves as a private collection.

Many registars do hold house investments. Some even renew registrants' expired names and let them 'drop' to their own collections instead of available for public re-registration.

That would almost be like insider trading then would it not, as nobody else gets the opportunity to pick them up?

Not only that, it's also anti-competitive, because new entrant Registrars cannot compete with large established ones because they retain the best expired names.

One day the FTC might finally wake up to it.

Some registrars even use inhouse "policy" and "discretion" to auction your expired names or charge ridiculously high 'redemption fees" and make profits even you still have right to renew / redeem them elsewhere.

I know it too. Register.com took all these names from its customers when they (mostly) expired in 2002 - 2004.
