June 30, 2018DomainingComments Off on Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Sunday July 1st , 2018
 DSAD.com:  So I had a twitter follower ask me to start listing what domains I bid on at auction and what I paid.  I can’t list ever single name I bid on but I can list a few every once in a while and tell you why I bid , how much I bid, and final price.  It gives you an idea of what I am thinking.    I don’t have some secret method...

 TLDInvestors.com: Daily Domain Picks 7-1-18 RawFish.com was the top close on Saturday, $3,800. 9229.net closed at $3,412, thought it might go $5,000.

Australia’s .Au domain names are now managed by Afilias

June 30, 2018Domaining, DomainnamewireComments Off on Australia’s .Au domain names are now managed by Afilias

Handover to Afilias is now complete.

It’s already July 1 in Australia, and that means that Afilias is now the backend registry service provider for over 3 million domain names ending in .Au.

.Au domain overseer auDA put the contract for managing .au out to bid, and in December of last year announced that Afilias won the contract, which had been handled by rival Neustar.

Transitioning a 3.1 million-domain namespace is unprecedented. The previous record for the size of a registry transitioned was .org back in 2003. At the time it had 2.4 million names under management. The gaining registry in that case was also Afilias.

As a result of the .au transition, Afilias now helps run 200 TLDs and more than 22 million domain names.

As newbies we think we’ve struck gold with hand-regged domains like SandpaperSusan.com and we list them for sale at 5 figures. After a year when it hasn’t sold we feel foolish and change it […] The post...
