New gTLD Domains Are Coming to Moniker

On Monday June 2nd, 2014, as part of the all-new Moniker experience, Moniker will begin to offer access to over 1,000 domain extensions including new generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs).

Moniker has not yet signed the 2013 RAA that allows a registrar to offer New gTLDs so maybe they are going to use a KeyDrive S.A. (Moniker’s parent company) accreditation such as Key-Systems, LLC.

Moniker will also be introducing the new control panel and backend next week so on Saturday May 31, 2014, from 3:00 AM – 3:00 PM EDT, Moniker.com will be undergoing maintenance to facilitate the launch of our new website experience; as a result, all services accessed through the website interface and API will be unavailable. All domain services including DNS Hosting, URL Forwarding, Email Forwarding and general usage of domains registered at Moniker.com will remain unaffected.

Here is the complete announcement I got today:

  1. In my opinion they will use Network Solutions to manage those gTLDs. You will be not able to transfer out domains with all the tricks they have set up, as many have been reporting for the last years (and as everyone can easily imagine, since they want calls from registrants before a transfer out, they have or at least they had (when I try NS time ago) tricks in the buying process, etc.).

    It will be a nightmare using that company/companies… If Web.com continue with its “strategy” I expect that even NJ and Name.com will be soon dameged…

  2. Are you sure? Things have changed recently?

    Until few months ago, if I remember well, Snapnames was a partner of Moniker.
    Now you manage domains acquired through Snapnames with Network Solutions.
    So, for the transitive property… Unless Moniker recently came out from the partnership with Snapnames, that is possible, maybe something about that was reported.. Anyway, I don’t trust these movements… If a company can have the property of Snapnames and 50% or something like that of Namejet, then no company can be trusted in domaining. Period.

    This industry has been destroyed with COLLUSIONS that NO ONE would have permitted AND ACCEPTED until 2O years ago. Collusions that no one accept even now in other economic sectors.

  3. Well I know people are pulling names out of Moniker, not trying to buy more there. A little late to the margin party here. Many times the ticket system is offline, their phone line goes to an answering machine, sorry Moniker you have been below average in 2013/2014, you have to earn business back. $4 for domain forwarding? REALLY
