Go Daddy run a .Ninja, .Reviews and .Futbol New gTLD premium auction 3 weeks ago that sold 9 domains. The domains were sold by their registry which is Rightside.
A reader complained the other day that the domain e.ninja that he won for $1,580 has not yet been given to him. He paid the winning immediately to Go Daddy and now it is 3 weeks and he has not received it.
Here are the reader’s comment:
I must say I am getting kind of worried. I won the e.ninja domain name and the Rightside registry still has not contacted me. In my GoDaddy Panel it says “email seller for details” but I emailed them about a week ago and they still have not responded. Both my domain name and the other winners (example app.reviews) still show as “domain reserved in accordance with ICANN policy” on WHOIS lookups. I really wish Rightside would be better at communication. Do they not want to give the domains up…? […]
I called Rightside 2 days ago and they said they’d call me yesterday, but no call. :/
Since they’re a registry it’d be really nice if they could somehow just plop the domain in my CSCGlobal account so I could bypass sitting at GoDaddy for 60 days.
I checked whois today and 8 out of the 9 domains have been assigned to Go Daddy but not to the respective owners yet. E.ninja still displays this message:
“This name is reserved by the Registry in accordance with ICANN Policy.”
A comment from Rightside registry would be appreciated.
