DAN changes invoice/transaction/VAT process
Shocking new changes at Dan.com, with the company becoming a middle party in all sales. As a Dutch company based in the EU, Undeveloped BV will also collect VAT whenever end-user buyers are involved, or when businesses in the same country transact. Best of luck understanding the fine details that can be reviewed and discussed in this thread.

There is no final decision yet but it's definitely disappointing to thousands of holders of .in domain names, in India and worldwide.

GoDaddy Expired Auctions can be tricked
Expired domain auctions at GoDaddy appear to be vulnerable to shill bidding, allowing a bidder with ill intentions to utilize alternate accounts and manipulate an auction. Using a low bid and a high bid that won't be paid, the auction awards the domain to the low bidder automatically. Read what other say about this claim.

This sounds great until one realizes that although the sale occurs on Afternic, the LTO process completes on Dan.com. Who thought of this? Find out by reading the rest of the discussion.
