Daily Domain Sales (9-24-2014): Weekdays.com $5,100, eChinese.com $3,050

dailyFinally the .London priority domain auctions have arrived! They are starting in 2 weeks. Only problem is that auctions may keep going into eternity: “If the leader changes at any time during the last 24 hours, the auction close will be extended for an additional 24 hours from the time the leadership changed.”

Seriously, .London, Minds + Machines and Pool? An additional 24 hour extension? I thought that “10 minutes” was bad.

This is like the opposite of impulse buying. Make a bid, sleep on it, make a bid, sleep on it, make a bid, sleep on it, make a bid, sleep on it, make a bid, sleep on it, make a bid, sleep on it, make a bid, sleep on it, make a bid, sleep on it, make a bid, sleep on it…

Unless I can find all 15 anonymous bidders and agree to end the auction in 2014 I won’t be bidding. So my refund with come in a few months.

Trademark Submissions At TMCH Are NOT Slowing Down: 32,993 Marks So Far

TMCH So far 32,993 marks have been submitted to the Trademark Clearinghouse as of the 16th of September 2014. The number of marks was 31,866 on the 28th of July. So the Trademark Clearinghouse added 1,127 trademarks in these past 50 days. (previous update had 950 TMs in 40 days) Trademark submissions are slowing down slightly but not as fast as I expected. And because the latest stats included August (a very slow month) trademark submissions may not be slowing down at all. There are a lot of latecomers.

There have been 111,855 notifications sent out to TM holders so far. This means Continue reading

New Domain Renewal Scam Steals Your Credit Card With A Tempting $3 Price And An ICANN Logo

noAn internet maze of several (some hidden) domain names across different registrars, with or without whois privacy, 2 countries, stolen credit card numbers and ICANN. And this only part of what this scam is about.

I got an email yesterday with the subject “clinicalagency.com EXPIRATION!”. The renewal price is very low at $3 for a .com that it is very tempting for people that don’t know much about domain names, registrars and renewals.

The email comes from “INTERNET DOMAIN REGISTRATION” and the email address: domain@domaiinnregistration.com. The domain name spells “domain” with 2 “i”s and 2 “n”s. But “domaiinnregistration.com” is not even registered.

The actually mistyped the email address as their scam website is located at Continue reading
