近期部份中文.com域名成交紀錄

之前有關 Register.com 放棄大量 2000 年起註冊之 IDNs 其中部份丁元所關注的域名成交金額如下:

跑.com $1,319 美金拍賣售出
手淫.com $1,004 美金拍賣售出
征友.com $633 美金拍賣售出
空姐.com $354 美金拍賣售出
ベット.com $228 美金拍賣售出
骨科.com $219 美金拍賣售出
方.com $208 美金拍賣售出

整體來說,比起 2010 年 snapnames.com 為 register.com 舉辦一批 IDNs 域名以上幾個域名就曾列在當初的拍賣清單中,其中除 方.com 比當初的起拍價 300 美金還低,其他如空姐.com及ベット.com也都是如此,而跑.com及手淫.com則是以四位數美金成交,代表在域名投資客的眼裡「具有意義的單字.com」及情色類域名仍是願意花大錢投資的標的。

而另一筆值得關注的中文域名拍賣-山东.com 目前仍在 IDNForum.com 上競標中,目前已高達 7,500 歐元(約折合新台幣29萬元)的高價,希望能有機會上看 10,000 歐元的成交價。

Register.com 放棄大量 2000 年起註冊之 IDNs

近日在 snapnames.com 域名拍賣網站的過期域名拍賣中,開始大量出現 Register.com 從 2000 年起就註冊持有的一批 IDNs 國際化域名拍賣,而其中還包含曾在 2010 年底的 IDN Auction 中的域名及稍早提供的一批清單之中,當初這些域名全都要 300 美金起標拍賣,而現在有機會以最低 69 美金的價格取得它們,其中包含清單如:

手淫.com
专题.com
空姐.com
探究.com 
方.com
菸.com
跑.com
方.com
抄.com

而 Register.com 大量放棄這些自 2000 年起最早開放即握在手上的 IDNs 是否代表他們已經看衰中文市場? 或因為投資時間已長達 12 年而選擇放棄?

不論其決定如何,從近日 山东.com 在 IDNForum.com 上的拍賣來看,頂級的中文域名仍是具有相當的價值性,而這個時候絕對適合看好 IDNs (國際化域名/含中文、日文等) 域名投資人進場的時機,尤其這樣的過期拍賣其域名的註冊日期仍舊會保留在 2000 年的 whois 紀錄,而越具有歷史的 whois 域名紀錄在日後的轉讓估價上會更具有身價。

不過在這樣的過期拍賣中,你仍得準備好二件事才有可能為日後的投資帶來獲利:
1.具有發現價值域名的眼光與分析的能力-當你面對一批大量的過期域名拍賣清單,如何最快的從其中發現具有經濟價值的域名是需要靠經驗與工具來組織分析的。
2.金錢-當你選擇上了一個具有經濟價值的域名並加入拍賣競標後,你會發現當其他域名投資人也加入這一場搶奪戰後,唯一能奪下這個域名的方式就只能靠萬惡的金錢了。

Snapnames.com 通知因其員工參與域名競標退款開始

今天早上我收到來自 Snapnames.com 的退款通知

Dear ,
You have been identified as a SnapNames customer who is eligible for our
Rebate Offer due to the fraud we discovered last year on our platform.
The deadline to accept this Rebate Offer is Friday, November 5, 2010.

Your rebate amount is $xx.95.  We can pay this to you by check or
PayPal, or as a Moniker or SnapNames account credit.

退款的原因是因為去年11月爆發該員工因參與域名競標抬高域名得標價所主動辦理之退款服務,可能是調查受害之客戶與賠償之金額直到最近才完成,故今早很多域名投資客都有收到相關的通知,其手續只要下載同意退款相關文件後,掃瞄或傳真回 Snapnames.com 專職單位,就可以透過支票或 Paypal 或是 Moniker 及 Snapnames 帳號下儲值完成退款動作,對於 Snapnames.com 的負責及主動調查通知客戶的態度,個人認為非常值得讚賞及學習!

snapnames.com 驚爆員工參與域名競標醜聞

國際知名域名預註服務商  Snapnames.com 早上發了封通知信給所有的會員,主要告知在 2005~2007 年間旗下內部員工因為參與域名競標抬高標價後又棄標的醜聞,在這種競標市場封閉的資訊公司爆發這種醜聞,首先要對公司要求員工的高標準且勇於負責的態度讚賞,對於被該員工拉高標價後的競標者可以獲得適當的賠償及利息,這是一個講求信用的域名界來說不同於一般小企業的負責態度表現。

其全文如下

Dear SnapNames customer:

I’m contacting you today to inform you of an unfortunate incident at SnapNames, and to let you know what the company is doing to address it.

Recently, SnapNames discovered that an employee had set up an account on the SnapNames system under a false name and, under this name, bid in SnapNames auctions.  This is a clear violation of our internal policy and was not approved by the company.  We deeply regret that this conduct has impacted our customers.
Extent of impact
This conduct affected a small percentage of SnapNames auctions:
  • Bidding affected approximately five percent of total SnapNames auctions since 2005, most of which occurred between 2005 and 2007.
  • The incremental revenue from the bidding represented approximately one percent of SnapNames’ auction revenue since 2005.
No matter the level of impact, SnapNames takes this matter extremely seriously.  When the matter was discovered, the company immediately closed the account in question and began a thorough investigation.  The employee has also been dismissed from the company.
SnapNames further discovered that, on certain recent and limited occasions, when the employee won an auction, the employee secretly arranged to refund from SnapNames to the fictitious account a portion of the winning bid amount.
Remedy to affected customers
Though on some occasions the employee won the auction, in many instances the bidding caused the ultimate auction winner to pay more for a name than had the employee not participated in the auction.
SnapNames neither condones this conduct nor wants to be perceived as benefiting from the conduct.  Accordingly, we have decided that regardless of the circumstance, in every auction where the employee’s fictitious account submitted a bid which resulted in a higher price being paid by the winning bidder, SnapNames will offer a rebate, with 5.22% interest (the highest applicable federal rate during the affected time period), to affected customers for the difference between the prices they actually paid and the prices they would have paid, had the employee not bid in the auctions.  The rebate will be available in cash or in credit on the SnapNames platform, at your discretion.
SnapNames has moved quickly to address this situation.  The company has retained Rust Consulting, an independent third party, who will administer the rebate offer.  Within the next week, Rust Consulting will contact affected customers to provide details regarding the offer.
Your business and ongoing relationship are important to us and we can assure you that we have taken all necessary steps to ensure the integrity of the platform and reinforced controls and procedures to avoid any possibility of further breach.  These include:
  • Enhanced monitoring of bidding activity for suspect behavior
  • Additional controls over financial transactions
  • Specific domain name registration policies for employees
