Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I usually do domain renewals once a quarter and get them in bulk. Unfortunately this new OpenSRS does not allow for that type of bulk purchasing. I've already submitted tickets on the challenges and it has been confirmed that you cannot effectively do bulk renewals in the new interface.
Well, that would be a major challenge for many of us who are doing any sort of bulk domain investments. Anyone else here part of that transition? What are your thoughts? Has anyone left the OpenSRS system and gone elsewhere? Where did you end up?
I just went through the process described to me on the ticket about bulk renewals and it takes about 1 minute per domain renewal (there is no Add to Cart function for multiples). And get this, they try sneaking those prechecked checkboxes in on you at the checkout phase, arrrggghhh!
Who can I go to these days for effective domain portfolio management? Someone that isn't going to get purchased in the next few years. Ha!
From what I've read over the years I'd say that the reasons folks with larger portfolios choose one registrar over another are as personal and as varied as the reasons the same folks have for driving a specific car.
Of course YMMV. :p

I would say that most registrars that I have dealt with are below par in their bulk management area though.
- Are their policies domainer friendly?
- Are they likely to take the name from you for frivolous reasons?
- Will they help if a name gets hijacked?
- If there's a problem do you have an account manager that you can speak with?
