Welcome to December & the 2022 Holidays! It's time for this week's Top Topics column here at NamePros:

Super domainer Swetha's sales record came under scrutiny and the "shocking" results are in. Epik and its new CEO are trying to make amends but its Escrow services and Masterbucks token are not operating as expected. Which registrar would you trust your most valuable domain names with? Domain investors discuss their exit strategy from the industry. What can you do when a domain's operator and registrant does not seem to respond to abuse reports?

Swetha’s Sales – The Truth May Shock You!
Swetha's prolific record of exceptional .XYZ domain sales made some wonder about the legitimacy of these transactions on Afternic and Dan. Michael Sumner, CEO of NameBio, logged into Swetha's account, with her permission; the records look legitimate and her name should be cleared. Or is it? Some people cannot get convinced no matter what.

What is your exit strategy from domain investing?
We all joined the domain investing industry with plenty of hopes, expectations, and dreams, energized by the success of our peers. Sometimes things don't go as planned and market conditions, along with personal challenges, lead us to make a hard decision: exit the game. Domain investors discuss their exit strategy and how to survive the sales slump.

What to do when a registrant is unresponsive to abuse reports
The internet's open nature can lead to the listing of personal or derogatory information on web sites, outside the control of those involved. When such a web site operator does not respond to abuse reports, it's time for the person affected to reach out to the domain's registrar. Find out additional options by joining the discussion.
