so namejet.com has launched and say they "consolidate an exclusive inventory of deleted and expired domain names from top registrars including eNom, BulkRegister and Network Solutions"

... anyone have any idea if this means they're now more important than snapnames in terms of acquiring expired Network Solutions domains?

I confess, with all the different players, including Oversee.net (owner of DomainSponsor, etc.) who just purchased Snapnames for $35 Million), after reading all of it more than once, I'm still unclear about the relationships and the outcomes.

Me-thinks there is more here than meets the eye.

As far as I know oversee (owner of snapnames) has an exclusive with all drops from Network Solutions. Other sites like pool.com claim they can grab those names as well but I have never seen it happen. I believe enom has their own aftermarket as well.

ddmedia - that was then ... this is now -- a major shift.

The two blogs mentioned capture it better than I could try to explain it... for example:

  • Network Solutions owns the TM (SM) on the new NameJet name.

  • eNom is the Registrant for NameJet.com

  • eNom (a/k/a Demand Media) sent me an email yesterday advising that my eNom "ClubDrop account" is now at NameJet, and provided login details.

  • Taryn Naidu, past president of Pool.com, joined eNom eleven months ago.

    i got an enom email with the announcement but it didn't provide login info .. i had to signup brand new

    noted too that when you go to enom's club drop section it indicates that eNom has moved its auctions to NameJet.comô

    for netsol domains, the safe bet going forward will prob be to backorder using both namejet and snapnames and see who's able to grab what

    The minimum price has gone up, natch; Snap's $59 to NJ's $70. Another change that will definitely not benefit the buyer. Personally I'll see how things turn out at Snap for the next few months before encouraging a pricier competitor.
