The domain with the most bidders at Namejet is not going to auction

This was one of these moments where it suddenly hits you and your blood freezes…

So I logged in to Namejet today, clicked on search, sorted all domains by most bids and then… I stood still looking at the first domain: biosafety.com. (The domain was at the top spot at the time of writing this post. It is now at the 2nd place after bigbaby.com.)

Hhhhmmm, why is my domain on an expired auction? I quickly did a whois search and saw that the domain was at my registrar, with my name on whois and was expiring in 1 year from now.

I then remembered that that stupid Network Solutions was sending me emails to renew a couple of domains I had transferred out months before. I had transferred this domain out of Network Solutions back in September. I won it at auction in June 2019 at Namejet.

So yes, the domain with the most bidders at Namejet is not going to auction. Well, we are not sure it is not going to auction… But if anyone wins the auction is not getting the domain.

Network Solutions and their buggy system has all these ghost records and these ghost domains are spilling over to Namejet’s expired auctions. This is probably happening more than we think.

So this could even create more problems if the domain goes to auction, someone wins the auction and Namejet does not deliver the domain. The winner could even think that I myself had the domain listed there and I backed out after the auction. Terrible businesses… Namejet and Snapnames have been a disgrace to the industry for years and they only survive because of the exclusive expired domain portfolio and some other people we all know and love. Not!

I am not going to inform Namejet. I will not waste my time with these people. I was trying for months to get access to a domain I had won there and their support is non-existent.

  1. “Network Solutions and their buggy system has all these ghost records and these ghost domains are spilling over to Namejet’s expired auctions..”

    That is crazy! Thank you for telling folks.

    I get emails to renew names that I have already transferred out and they still appear in their records. Now, to auction off those name…wow!

  2. Why do people bid in this kind of auctions when they know it is rigged and no transparency?

    Maybe they are paid to bid …inside job…to make it looks good and legit.

    Do we know who the bidders are?

  3. oh you gullible youngsters. thank your lucky stars you never had to deal with network solutions when they were the only registrar on earth.

  4. Just another reason why you should stay away from both NameJet and Network Solutions.

  5. Thanks Kostantinos.I dont trust them and even snapnames.Anything linked to networksolutions. Com is Fraud and Dirty.Biotrade.com was auctioned in May and today I received an email that reads below ;

    The transaction for biotrade.com has been cancelled and the listing removed from our website by SnapNames administration. If you have any questions, please contact your representative or SnapNames Support.

    Thank you,
    SnapNames.

    So I checked whois and it’s new ventures services Corp.This business is still run by crooked folks .I wont be surprised by shill bidding by their staffs and even the owners .Beware domainers if you are bidded up and overpay. SnapNames is and namejet have friends in the community that are corrupt.

    Thank you for all you do in the domain community. I Really appreciate it all and thanks for exposing the bad eggs. Please do a write up if you can in biotrade.com

  6. Here what I told about NameJet before, I warned all domainers…

    ” We closed our NameJet account a few weeks ago, because of they dont delivered our domain we paid for.
    No domain, no refund, many emails we sent them…. nothing change… not even respond….

    We bought a few hundreds domains from Namejet auctions, we are long time NameJet customer….

    When you buy any domain from NameJet, just be careful, be so careful, they have not not good customer service too. ”
