SnapNames to Bring Back Historical Bid Information

by Frank Michlick in Categories: Legal Issues

An update for the developing Snapnames story:

According to a post on NamePros from Rob, an employee of Oversee.net’s support, Snapnames will restate all bidding history in their interface. The information had been truncated before and thus was only showing auctions up to November 2007.

[Ed. Emphasis added]

There’s been a lot happening today and I wanted to give the forum an update. I’m posting here and on some other boards to reach as many clients as possible.

There’s been quite a bit of back-and-forth here and other places about access to SnapNames bidding and order history. The truncated system, which limits view to the 24 months prior to whatever date the lookup is being performed, has been in place for the past four years, since June 2005. This was not changed recently or in response to the recent announcement.

That aside, to make sure no one thinks there’s an attempt to shield data, our technical staff is adjusting the existing system so order and bid histories are available back to August 2004, when SnapNames instituted the auction platform. We are working on that change now.

I’ll post more when I know more.

Thanks.

Rob

This truncating did not occur until sometime in mid to late 2009. That is an deception and misdirection.
