Gab.com is apparently on a payment plan. That should serve as a warning.

October 31, 2018Domaining, DomainnamewireComments Off on Gab.com is apparently on a payment plan. That should serve as a warning.

Domain name appears to be on a payment plan at Escrow.com.

The valuable domain name Gab.com is in limbo. It is used for a ‘free speech’ social network and it seems that the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter was radicalized (in part) by using the service.

GoDaddy told the company to move its domain name elsewhere. A new Whois record shows that the owners transferred Gab.com to Uniregistry in the Cayman Islands. The Hot Potato is now in Frank Schilling’s hands.

But there’s something else notable on the Whois record for Gab.com. In order to transfer it, GoDaddy’s proxy service had to be removed. Note the address and email address in the public Whois:

That’s the address for Escrow.com and the email address used when a domain name is sold in a payment plan.

In other words, it looks like the $220,000 sale on Flippa wasn’t paid up front.

The domain is damaged now that it has been used for a controversial purpose. If Gab.com stops making payments on the domain (which is possible given that their payment processors and hosts have pulled the plug), it might be harder to sell the domain again.

Whenever you lease a domain or sell it on a payment plan, you need to set terms on how it can be used. While typical clauses prevent using it for spam or adult content, you might want to look further than that.
