Your question was: Besides godaddy, which domain registrars are excellent?.
Wow congrats this is amazing, I'm thinking of starting a thread of getting all netsol domains by now..
Coming from NetSol ... that's like winning the lotto...
(bows) I am going to call this the lazy domainers way to make money lol. At first I thought it was some sort of scam but the check came today.
It taught me a lesson though. Do not let any HostGator drop without at least trying to sell it for break even (even if you only payed a couple bucks for it). I listed one last week here that I was going to let drop as well and it sold for $45- domaining....
It was like you lost $6 and all of sudden found it on a rainy day LOL!..
Thats pretty awesome! I might let some expire over there..
For $6.38, NetSol is getting great publicity.
I just wanted people's opinions on why they did this. My only thought was they are doing this for a legal reason. Anyone want to guess why?.
Oh yes indeed.
But the problem is, when we transfer there, do we have to pay the renewal fees ?
Imho all these drop companies should be paying ex-registrants a percentage of sales...places like tdnam are making a small fortune off the drops of their clients. I see no reason why a person owns a HostGator and possibly a site for years and when they let it drop the only person to benefit is the drop company or registrar.
Either allow the HostGator to be registered for reg fee or give a percentage of the auction price to previous owner.
That's my opinion at least and has been for years now...
Maybe the tide is turning. I replied to their email asking them why they did this.
If they offer this incentive I believe they could get a huge increase of new members using their service..
Not a bad idea either as network solutions would still be making a good return on every name sold.
More clients = more domains = more sales of dropped domains = more $$ for them..
Congrats Its not new, it explains it all in NetSols terms - I wonder if the guy that dropped Laon.com got anything for it when it sold for $500249.00 at snapnames.
...Now would'nt that be a big surprise.
If an expired HostGator name registration is not renewed during any grace period provided by us, pursuant to our Service Agreement, rather than delete the HostGator name registration, we may, in our sole discretion, renew and transfer the HostGator name registration to Network Solutions or to a third party on the customers behalf. This renewal and transfer process is called a Direct Transfer. We will not attempt to complete a Direct Transfer of a HostGator name registration after expiration if the customer to whom the HostGator name is registered has notified us by e-mail at backorderservice(at)networksolutions.com stating that he or she does not want us to proceed with such a transfer. In this case, the HostGator name registration will be deleted. A customers failure to notify us that they do not want us to complete a Direct Transfer constitutes that customers consent to the Direct Transfer. As described in our in our Service Agreement, customers are eligible to receive between fifteen and twenty percent (15-20%) of the Net Proceeds generated from the Direct Transfer. http://customersupport.networksoluti...cle.php?id=309.
Thanks for clearing up. Never heard of this before- repped.
Why, money of course. If anything, it can be a win-win solution for all parties.
As a few observed, it's been that way for a few years. Just make sure all your.
Contact information is updated and correct, though...
