Namejet to Sell Fabulous.com Expiring Domains

by Adam Strong in Categories: Domain Auction

Domain registrar and parking company Fabulous.com announced today a partnership that pairs the company up with expiring domain auction site Namejet.com . Effective August 1st all of the Fabulous.com company owned expiring domain names will be auctioned through NameJet.com.

According to an announcement sent to customers, Fabulous.com will be running their own expiring domain inventory through the Namejet system as a test beginning August 1st. The test will allow them to determine whether the solution is a viable option for selling Fabulous registrant customers expiring domain names as well. The company seems to be planning to launch the service for customers in the future with an opt-in feature but they have yet to determined the details of the arrangement :

This would be an opt in service, where you would receive funds on a revenue share basis for any of your expiring domains that are sold.

Namejet.com currently includes NetworkSolutions and Enom among the registrars that run their expiring domain inventory through the NameJet expiring domain auction marketplace.

The full company announcement after the jump.

Fabulous released the information to their users/customers after a leak by Namejet.com surfaced this weekend at Namepros.

From August 1, NameJet will be listing deleted and expiring domain names from the Fabulous registry. In the initial stages, only domains owned by Domain Active (which is a sister company of Fabulous.com) will be auctioned off.

Like all new product developments, we will be testing the NameJet platform with our own portfolio first. If the tests are successful we will be making this available to our third party partners such as yourself. This would be an opt in service, where you would receive funds on a revenue share basis for any of your expiring domains that are sold.

Just to re-iterate, initially only our own domains are included in this partnership, and any domains that you do not renew will go through the normal drop/delete cycle.

Once we have more information about the possibility of releasing this to third parties, we will be sure to let you know.
