158 .Condos Domain Names Taken in EAP; Here They Are & Here’s The Best Of What’s Left

If your planning on registering any .Condos new gTLD domain names this week, most of the bigger markets in the United States are spoken for.

In what looks to be a very successful Early Access Program for Donuts’ .Condos new gTLD,  we counted 158 domain names registered in the 5 day EAP period.

In addition to paying the one time fee which ranges for around $12,500 to $250 depending on the registrar many of these domain names also carry a annual premium price registration and renewal fee.

However the premium fees for the .Condos was much less than for say .Expert

A domain like NewYork.Condos was priced as high as $1,500 a some registrars.

I didn’t see any .Condos  new gTLD domains priced above $1,500 (remember Football.Expert at $5,500)

Personally I like the .Condos extension a lot and if you do a whois check you will see we own several of these domains.

Obviously Condos are a big dollar item and in places like New York City the average price for a condo is over $1 million making the commission for broker over $60,000, I don’t think a renewal fee as high as $1,500 per year fee is going to be a problem.

This is the first extension were we actually got beat out on other EAP orders placed at other registrars for the same day like on Miami.Condos which we had a EAP day 2 order on.

Donuts Pulled Back & Reserved Luxury.Villas During EAP After Orders Were Placed

Yesterday we wrote about how Godaddy.com didn’t award us the domain name Luxury.Villas which we ordered last week for registration on the 5th day of the   Early Access Program (EAP)

OnlineDomain.com wrote about this domain as being priced at $13,500 for year of registration and renewal just three days ago while the EAP program was already going.

Now it seems the domain was reserved by the registry during the EAP period while there were pending orders

Here is the Whois on the domain name:

“This name is reserved by the Registry in accordance with ICANN Policy.”

Here is the email I just got from Godaddy  just minutes ago:

 

Screen Shot 2014-05-28 at 12.38.19 PM

Needless to say I’m not a happy camper.

For one I never filed a “ticket with Godaddy” , they apparently saw my blog post and opened their own ticket on it.

Instead of honoring the order at Godaddy, Donuts decided to pull the domain back after the EAP started, after the domain had an order that was paid for.

No Bueno guys

Not the way to run a business, especially a new one that already has a pretty of doubters.

 

 

 

ICANN To Open Up Comment Period On Donuts Request To Allow 2 Letter New gTLD’s

ICANN just posted a letter it send to Jon Nevett of Donuts regarding its request to release all 2 letter new gTLD domain in all the strings that Donuts has signed contracts with.

It appears ICANN is not against the concept saying;

“ICANN has conducted a preliminary review of your request introduce two-character domains to the marketplace and “Based on the information provided, ICANN’s preliminary review did not identify any significant competition or security and stability issues.”

“Implementation of your proposal is the first type of request in the new gTLD space and would require an amendment to the following Registry Agreements:”

As a result, ICANN will post the amendments for public comment.

ICANN looks forward to working with you on the proposed amendments that will be posted for public comment, and will provide amendment language to help facilitate discussions.

Donuts Letter To Those That Lost Eco New gTLD’s

Donuts just sent out a letter to all their customers that registered a new gTLD with the word Eco on the left of the dot, who had their domains taken back from the registry.

The memo line on the email reads “Your Recently Deleted Name”

As we stated earlier this week, we lost one such domain, eco.domains, so we got an email letter of our own and thought you would be interesting in seeing what Donuts is sending out

Here it is:

“”You recently registered the domain name <eco.domains> through your registrar.  Regretfully, that domain name was made available for registration due to a technical error.  The domain name industry’s regulator, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), unfortunately prohibits us from making that domain name available to the public at this time.  You can find the domain name you registered and a long list of similar names we are prohibited from registering here: http://www.icann.org/sites/default/files/packages/reserved-names/ReservedNames.xml.

Though we would very much like you to keep the domain name, due to these ICANN regulations we were forced to delete the name and place it on “Registry Reserved” status, along with other domain names that ICANN requires us to make unavailable for registration.

We are extremely sorry for the frustration and inconvenience this has caused you.  Though this was an isolated error, we are doing everything we can to make sure it stays that way.  We also apologize that it took us several days to communicate this to you.  We were exploring every avenue available to us within ICANN’s complex regulations to correct the error.

Now, the good news:
We have refunded the full domain name registration fee to your registrar and expect the registrar will provide this refund to you.
We are actively lobbying ICANN to make the domain name you registered available to you.  We hope to be successful and, though you are under no obligation to do so, we think it would be helpful if you voiced your opinion to ICANN about it directly.
To get this domain name to you as soon as possible, we are maintaining a record of your details in the event ICANN releases it for registration.  If and when ICANN does, we will contact you and have this name registered to you for free.
We hold ourselves at Donuts to very high standards and regret to have fallen short.  You have our sincere gratitude for your patience and understanding as we try to get this domain name back to you.

Richard Tindal
Donuts Inc. Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer””
