Great drop-catching alternative: You can catch domains using Sav.com

Sav.com has been my go-to domain registrar for several months now. Transitioning away from GoDaddy-operated properties such as Uniregistry, is my personal and professional decision, based on extensive use and understanding of the domain industry. Disclaimer: Sav sponsors my publication DomainGang but as a full time user of their services, capable of evaluating the quality of service, I stand by my personal opinion. This is not an ad placement or paid article. Currently, just under 50% of my portfolio is at Sav.com and I will continue transferring domains there when they approach renewal time. I'm very happy with the improvements of the Sav system and I've heard more great news is coming up, regarding customer-centric add-ons.

Domains at Uniregistry: Check the auth code before transferring out

After a decade at Uniregistry as my domain registrar of choice, I've been migrating my portfolio elsewhere. The acquisition of Uniregistry by GoDaddy presents complex issues such as the forced addition of Uni domains to Afternic, with no direct management of these listings via the Uni Market. Currently, I'm transferring domain names (and registering new domains) at Sav.com, with more than 25% of my portfolio already there. As domains at Uni reach expiration, I move them to Sav.com. While the Sav platform is not polished, any bugs that I've reported have been ironed out and there are more improvements in the pipeline. Domain pricing at Sav is also very competitive and transfers from Uniregistry take a couple of hours to complete. By default, Uniregistry generates complex … [Continue reading]

Fake sales: Hitting the BIN button at the Uni Market
