Aftermarket Domain Sale Site NameJet.com launches

by Adam Strong in Categories: Domain Aftermarket, Featured, Registrars

NameJet.com, a new player in the expiring domain name market, launched earlier today. The first hint of this was mentioned on Jay Westerdal’s blog in a post speculating that the launch of the site would mean the end of SnapNames exclusivity to the expiring domains coming from their partner NetworkSolutions. In the expiring marketplace NSI releases a large number of domains in to the market and likely accounts for many of the after-market sales on SnapNames. It appears now that the exclusivity of these expiring domains has been switched over to NameJet.

Westerdal also speculates on his blog that the likely company behind the NameJet brand is Enom.com Early last month at the Domain Roundtable event Taryn Naidu and John Kane of Enom both mentioned to me that Enom had a vastly improved version of Club Drop being released in the latter half of this year. I think we are seeing that promise come to fruition here with the release of NameJet. If NameJet.com auctions both NSI and Enom domains, the inventory of domains for sale at the site will likely be one of the largest. NSI and Enom currently are #2 and #3 largest registrars with over 13 million domains registered between the two companies.

I’m waiting to hear back from Taryn. Reps with SnapNames declined to comment on any contractual relationships. More details on this story to come.

From an email from eNom:

For many years, eNom.com, eNomCentral.com, ClubDrop.com and BulkRegister.com have offered the cream of the crop in aftermarket domains, including pending delete and pre-release names.

Starting October 5, 2007, eNom will make these names available for auction at NameJet™, a new domain name auction venue which will consolidate an exclusive inventory of deleted and expired domain names from top registrars including eNom, BulkRegister and Network Solutions.

NameJet provides industry-leading features and auction functionality that makes finding aftermarket domain names easy.

We’re pleased to notify current Domain Auctions customers:
• Your eNom, eNomCentral, BulkRegister and ClubDrop logins can now be used at NameJet
• Any current auctions on which you are bidding have been migrated to NameJet
• eNom reseller accounts, plus eNomCentral and BulkRegister accounts can still manage their existing names at their respective sites
• eNom resellers may continue to use their eNom Points to purchase domain names

We have also made the following price revisions:
• Minimum bids for all Backorders placed on or after October 5, 2007 including Pending Delete names will be $70 and include registration of that name for one year.
• Minimum bids for all existing Backorders for names not already in Pending Delete will be $70 and include its one-year registration.

Give NameJet a try now! You’ll be amazed at the new interface and enhanced functionality to better help you get the domain names you want most.

Sincerely,

Chris Sheridan
Vice President, Services

[…] The NameJet product path is similar to what SnapNames.com did a few years back by allowing domain owners to put domain names for sale through their platform.
