GoDaddy Auctions is pulling back some expired domains that were at Endurance

July 31, 2018Domaining, DomainnamewireComments Off on GoDaddy Auctions is pulling back some expired domains that were at Endurance

Domains from partner registrar were mistakenly sent to GoDaddy for auctioning.

Over the weekend, a Domain Name Wire reader noticed that expired domain names from some domain name registrars had been pulled from GoDaddy Auctions. This included domain names that already had bids. When I looked the domains up, it seemed that some of them had previously been renewed by their owners.

All four of the registrars that this reader noticed–BigRock, Domain, FastDomain and Public Domain Registry–are owned by Endurance International Group.

Now at least one GoDaddy Auctions customer has received an email explaining that some of the domains they won are going to be pulled back due to a mistake. The domains should not have been sent to GoDaddy auctions from the partner registrar.

While it doesn’t name names, all of the domains I’ve seen are at Endurance registrars.

Mr. Bladel goes to Washington

July 31, 2018Domaining, DomainnamewireComments Off on Mr. Bladel goes to Washington

GoDaddy VP of Public Policy testifies to Congress and answers questions from Ted Cruz.

GoDaddy VP of Global Policy James Bladel testifying to the Senate Subcommittee on Communications, Technology, Innovation, and the Internet

GoDaddy Vice President of Global Policy James Bladel was in Washington, D.C. this morning for a Senate hearing “The Internet and Digital Communications: Examining the Impact of Global Internet Governance”.

In his prepared testimony (pdf), Bladel touched on three topics: foreign regulations, GDPR and the Cooperative Agreement between the U.S. government and Verisign when it comes to .com.

On the latter, Bladel urged the government to maintain price caps in the Cooperative Agreement. He also urged them to eventually put the .com contract out to competitive bid.

Bladel was questioned by Ted Cruz about the first amendment and what role companies like GoDaddy should have in being the arbiters of free speech. It seemed like he might be alluding to GoDaddy kicking out domains like DailyStormer.com. Bladel responded that GoDaddy does not want the role of determining what is free speech, but does enforce its Terms of Service against illegal activity and speech that rises to a level of promoting violence.

ConvertKit decides against renaming as Seva

July 31, 2018Domaining, DomainnamewireComments Off on ConvertKit decides against renaming as Seva

After customer feedback, ConverKit decides to stick with its original name.

Two weeks ago I interviewed Nathan Barry, founder of email marketing platform ConvertKit, on the DNW Podcast. Nathan explained the long process the company went through in coming up with tje new company name Seva and acquiring the domain name Seva.com. It was a lot of work and a big expense.

I heard from many people that this was the best podcast interview yet, and I agree that there were lots of great lessons and tips in that episode.

And now for another lesson…

After announcing the name change, ConvertKit got lots of feedback. Much of it was around the origins of the name. While ConvertKit viewed it as meaning “selfless service”, the company subsequently heard from many people about the deep connection to religion and culture that the word has.

It ultimately decided that it should stick with the ConvertKit name.

Does anyone wantt to buy Seva.com?
