    Epik's new landing pages and even the new default landing page look good, but there is no visit tracking.
    So it is very difficult to know whether outbound efforts are working, because people don't like replying emails
    (although my emails are never boring).

    Sedo has partial visit tracking. Afternic has none as far as I know. Epik has offer tacking but no visit tracking. Dan has both?

    The thread might be either Dan or Epik promo, it is hard to decide which one.
    Though it may be just a "curious" domainer who wants to know which one is the best lander.
    That's the irony of it, we will never know for sure :laugh:

    Hi Rob,
    It may just be my experience, but it seems to me that there is not quite as universally fast loading (at least from here in western Canada) compared to the situation say a month or more ago. This is only the case during 'peak' North American hours, i.e. middle off night still run fast. It is still pretty fast, but have your tech people noticed any slowing. I presume if I am right, and maybe I am not, it is due to many more people using your great landers and more interest in names listed for sale on your site.
    Bob

    Curious that no one has mentioned Uniregistry? I don't use them (mix of Epik and Dan for me) but they have a good pipeline of sales coming through....

    Can we use Epik landers for the domains that are not registered at Epik?
    If yes, how?

    The problem was traffic to Vancouver was routing over Switzerland rather than through the US Border Gateway Protocol (BGP).

    Pretty bad-ass that we can fix that on our own network, right?

    Also, our Asia ping times should get a lot better in the next 24 hours. A new Japan CDN node is coming online today thanks to @Miao.

    TrustRatings.com :xf.wink: - Very clever indeed.

    Why use TrustPilot.com when you can make your own rating site?

    Later this week you will be able to drill down on the visit number and see the visit activity detail.

    Hello,

    Yes it's possible.
    Import your domains to your portfolio.
    Change your nameservers to ns3.epik.com and ns4.epik.com
    Then go to Build > Park this domain :)

    Gube,

    Not a problem @Rob Monster Epik's network is growing fast, we control 100% of the routes and traffic that goes through our network, any optimization needed we can do it on our side. Epik has a live Network Weather map for anyone interested. https://as34962.net/

    Just PM @epik and we'll approve you for that. You can add domains under Domains --> Add domains:

    https://registrar.epik.com/portfolio-import

    And then just activate landers and marketplace:

    https://www.epik.com/support/knowledgebase/selling-and-leasing-domains-on-epik/

    https://www.epik.com/support/knowledgebase/enable-a-coming-soon-or-domain-parking-page/

    We don't approve it for everyone but NP members pretty much always get approved. It is by approval to prevent scammers from listing inventory they don't own.

    For the record, we don't even know the OP of this thread. I am not even sure he/she is an Epik client.

    Great thread. I just followed him/her now.

    This is not a dig - I love Epik and use them but this thread has gone off topic.....less promotion and more peoples opinions on their choice of the best lander would be appreciated......a lot these posts could be made in the Epik thread......

    Is Epik planning on allowing logos to be uploaded for names and also for display in custom marketplace ?

    The feature will be useful especially for clients selling brandable -type domains. Nice logo or concept helps to sell such type names better .

    Regards

    Yes, good idea. Would you replace the Epik logo in upper left? Fine with that, by the way. @Ala Dadan will make that happen here shortly. I suggest:

    1. Default logo as account-wide preference

    2. Domain-specific logo as optional override.

    Would you ever need more than one logo?

    Upper left is OK?

    Thanks for rapid response. I don't claim to understand the technical details, and frankly I had always thought that Switzerland was between Washington State and British Columbia - you are telling me that is not right? :xf.grin:

    I have to say - I'm very impressed with @Rob Monster interaction with customers. This is the only way to truly build an amazing product.

    Loads of big companies could learn a very valuable lesson from this. DAN also do this well, but it's a rarity.

    In regards to best Lander. Test the ones that work for you but I'd say DAN and Epik are definitely the leaders right now.

    A vendor is pitching the idea of using Push Notifications inside of SSL landers:

    upload_2019-9-23_10-44-15.png

    Yes, the image is hideous, but set that aside. Would this be useful for automated re-targeting of people who visit your landers to hit them about price changes, or invite offers?

    TrustRatings.com will be quite legit. We are still scouting for a Product Manager for the business unit and may spin it out into its own NewCo just to keep things firewalled. Right now we are incubating it. I believe it will be a winner. The competition is capable but they are overcharging big-time.

    Is the OP referring to the appearance of the lander or the best lander to get sales? If the latter, the best of the three is Uniregistry hands down. Uni may be ugly but behind Uni's lander is a professional, dedicated sales team committed to following up with buyers and brokering your sale.

    This is a huge added value.

    Many buyers don't want to deal directly with domain owners. They prefer having a reputable third-party broker the transaction, both for trust and for perceived fairness in pricing.

    Of the three, I'd take Uniregstry all day.

    I wish we could have closed that deal. Reza and I have agreed to not discuss it. I would do that deal again today if I could. I saw great potential there and still see it. That is all I will say about that.
