Re: 16 Bidder Slugfest at Snapnames

Should we be running a pool on the final amount it goes for?

Re: 16 Bidder Slugfest at Snapnames

It may have been dropped on purpose. Drops are much better than sales these days.

Recent example: youtobe.com. It was supposed to drop on 20/10/2006, but all the usual steps were unfairly shorten to make it drop sooner. Owner and drop company share the profit of the drop auction (40.000 US$). Stay tuned.

Re: 16 Bidder Slugfest at Snapnames

You better point out which rabbit hole to look in. As I understand it, the REGISTRARS (only) compete for the drops in a special "pool" before the drops slide to the next level.

So question...if a name expires at Enom...do they get to "keep" their customers drops if they so choose, or do they have to compete on those in the pool with other registrars. And if not, how would someone dropping to know which registrar is going to end up with the drop and set up the deal with them and Snap.

I don't disbelieve you, just seems uh....like a bit of collusion here.

Re: 16 Bidder Slugfest at Snapnames

As I understand it, if your registrar or their associate (generally Snapnames or Pool) want your name. After the 30 day grace period it is not returned to the registry but retained by the registrar. They pay the registry to renew the name for another year ($5.50). It is then market Redemption at he registar but not at the registry as it is not really in redemption. However, if you try to renew at this stage you will get stung with the usually highly inflated fee. It then slips through the channels into the Drop Auctions without ever actually dropping. Some players are in a position to push names through the system this way, but I think you have to be big-time. There is an advantage in doing this as Snapnames generally get better prices faster than Sedo or any of the other Domain Retailers.

If you need some ideas on auction tactics, watch some wildlife films of Lionesses stalking Zebra.

Re: 16 Bidder Slugfest at Snapnames

I'm not used to using SnapNames so I have no clue how to find what you guys are seeing.
It ends Monday US time right?

I believe that only the bidders that registered can see this. If you register, you are commiting to buy name at $60 if there are no other bidders. I registered for this auction (along with a good few IDNF members) so I am able to log in.

It ends Monday, at 12nn Pacific time US, unless there are any last minute bidders which will extend the ending time.
