Cheapest .xxx domain renewal and transfer prices ($68.17 is the best price)

Extension .xxx is approaching its first anniversary on December 6th and it is time to renew your .xxx domain names. Many people like me used backordering and pre-registrations last year. Some may choose to transfer the domains in order to consolidate them from various registrars to their favorite one. But I think the list below is worth a look so you can see market prices for .xxx renewals and transfers. You might choose to change registrars after all.

Please keep in mind that the registry price for .xxx domain names is not even close to .com or any other major gTLD. It is a staggering $62 and retail prices are of course more than that. So choose wisely what domains you renew and what you drop.

The cheapest price came from what was a surprise to me: GoDaddy at $68.17 (using a coupon). Then there is DomainMonster that has a $69.99 price for .xxx transfers. Name.com (for transfers) and 101domain.com have their pricing set at $75 for .xxx domains.

There are a couple of European Registrars like dinahosting and gandi.net offering .xxx domains for €52 ($67.57) and €55 ($71.47) respectively but depending on where you live you may have to pay VAT tax and also you may have to make substantial purchases to get this rate.

Do you want cheap .xxx prices? Please find below the complete list of prices for .xxx domain names renewals or transfers from most of the .xxx accredited registrars.

Do we really need an .hiv gTLD?

Do we really need an .hiv new gTLD? No, we don’t! Sorry.

DotHIV had collected funding of over $470,000 at the time of submitting the new gTLD application. I am sure they have spend and will spend a lot more until the launch. Is this the best way to spend 500k+ USD in order to help the HIV cause?

The cost of a new gTLD is going to be more than 1M USD just to get it off the ground for the first year. The administrative and operational costs are going to be there year in, year out. Here is a rough estimation of the cost:
ICANN Application Fee: $185,000
Consulting (application, legal): $150,000
ICANN Fee: $25,000 per year
Registry Back End: $50,000+ per year
Various administrative, operational, marketing, etc. costs: $1,000,000 per year

What is the point of the new gTLD .hiv when there is going to be a .charity and a .health? There is also a new gTLD coming that is for Non-Governmental Organizations: .ngo. And of course there is the .org old timer that is still the de facto extension for all charity and health organizations and charities.

Do we really need such specialization in new gTLDs? .cancerresearch seriously? Do we need a .heart? What about having a new gTLD for every disease and charity cause? I support cancer and hiv research and all medical research but give me a break. These gTLDs are simply a waste of funds and resources.

Sedo announced today a partnership with new gTLD registry to support .HIV domains. Please note that Sedo is offering its services at a reduced cost, not free. Here is part of the press release:

Among other roles, Sedo is helping dotHIV by appraising and auctioning premium .hiv domains, supporting preregistrations for people and organizations wishing to reserve names before the official launch, and evaluating the entire .hiv namespace to ensure that important .hiv domain names reach the best end users.

By offering its services at a significantly reduced cost, Sedo is helping dotHIV’s mission of contributing a majority of its revenue to projects and initiatives that fight HIV/AIDS. More than 70 percent of the registry’s revenue – with an ultimate goal of at least 80 percent – will be distributed to relevant charities. The remaining funds will be used to finance registry operations, manage donation distribution and raise awareness of the digital red ribbon as a means for the world to beat AIDS together.

I am sorry but auctioning .hiv domains seems a bit odd to me. Most of the very few “end-users” involved will be non-profit organizations and charities. So they are going to “donate” 100% of their funds in order to distribute 70% to charity? Even if there are a few pharmaceutical companies bidding, again it would be more efficient to just donate the money directly to charity. There are only a handful of “premium” .hiv domains and once these are auctioned off demand will tank.

I am saying this because I don’t see .hiv surviving the first couple of years. .hiv will need 10k registrations at $100 a pop per year just to break even. I don’t see that happening. Sorry but I don’t see .hiv surviving more than 2 years if it doesn’t get external funding. And getting funding defeats the purpose of the .hiv gTLD. Except if their only purpose is to bring HIV and AIDS awareness… The idea may have looked good to some people but at this cost, fierce competition and no sustainable future, I have to say no to .hiv.

Sedo sells 951 domains worth $1.6 million: (hyphen week) juegos-gratis.com sells for 20,000 EUR and deutschland-bewegt-sich.de for 9,900 EUR – Week 20/11-26/11 2012

This week, 951 transactions (948 last week) took place on Sedo’s marketplace and via SedoMLS, totaling $1.6 million ($1.6 last week). Only 264 domains (245 last week) were reported by Sedo this week. The other domains were either private sales or domains that sold for less than 700 USD/EUR/GBP. Over 41% (40% last week) of total sales were the result of Buy Now listings. 41% is quite an impressive portion of total sales. Sedo will not reveal what is the Buy Now percentage of the public sales vs the percentage of the private sales.

Do you have domains expiring every single day of the year?

I was doing the monthly domain name renewals yesterday. As I was going through my domain names, day after day, I realized that there was not a single day of the month that I didn’t have a domain expiring. I then checked all 365 days only to find out that I had domains expiring every single day of the year.

I was not even close to not having at least one domain per day. I usually have 3+ for each day. Some days I have a  lot more expiring domains. These days are skewed because of launching of new gTLDs (.info, .biz), ccTLDs (.us) or the occasional Landrush 2 (.info).

I have domains expiring every day which means that I have bought domains every single day of the year: Christmas, New Year’s Day, Easter Sunday, my birthday, my name day etc. This is what happens eventually when you buy, sell and develop domains for 10 years non stop…

Do you have domains expiring every day? Does this mean you have too many? If you do, is it maybe time to drop some?
I know I am dropping a few…

Mrs Jello is selling domain names at NameJet with no reserve

The domain AudioPlayer.com sold today at NameJet for $2,050. The domain was not expired. It was auctioned of by the owner, Mrs Jello, LLC.

Domainer Igal Lichtman (aka Mrs. Jello) has sold domains at NameJet before but I never noticed an auction without a reserve. This auction didn’t have the usual “NameJet Reserve“. I believe this show a lot of confidence in both the domain’s value and the NameJet auction house.

Price seems a bit low to me but that is the risk of auctioning domains to domainers. I guess Mrs. Jello could have waited for the end user but no one can be sure on the reasons why this domain name was liquidated.

The 9 missing .org domains from Project94.org are country codes: do.org, pt.org, ac.org, bs.org etc.

Do you remember the 9 missing .org domains from Project94.org? According to PIR’s Public Relations firm the remaining 9 are country codes and will be allocated accordingly. I got this note after someone from the PR firm read my article. I am not all clear on how these are going to be allocated. Probably these will go to the respective registries running the ccTLDs.

A few weeks back I wrote about how the Public Interest Registry (PIR), the .ORG registry, will release 94 one and two character .ORG domains using Go Daddy and eNom. The published lists of domains allocated to each registrar at Project94.org  had only 85 .org domains. Go Daddy has 42 and eNom has 43 .org domains. I posted the complete list of these 85 domains here. That left 9 missing domains that are country codes. I was only  able to find 8 of them and here they are:

ac.org – Ascension Island
ar.org – Armenia
bs.org – Bahamas
do.org – Dominican Republic
mw.org – Malawi
pt.org – Portugal
sk.org – Slovakia
vc.org – Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

A few weeks back I ran a whois search for all the possible 2 character combinations in .org. I found 8 of the country codes (in my list of 61 possible domains) but was wrong about j0.org being on the list although I don’t know why as it has the same creation date (7th of May 2012) as the other 94 domains and the same whois result: “Name is reserved by Registry_Policy”.

This leaves me with 53 domains that should have been in this project but aren’t. These are reserved by PIR just like the 94 .org in the current project but I was told that these were not approved by ICANN. Here they are:
