    Exactly, so far its not been urgent but what if it is a sale and a condition of the sale is to get the name to Epik (and it happens with other winning registrars too BTW)? GoDaddy is holding up a sale because, as you said - they're of the opinion that their valuation tool actually means something. I totally agree!

    And then its the whole "we're doing this in the name of security" lie. If it was actually in the name of security then ALL domains would receive this 5 day wait not just domains perceived to be worth 2K or more to them. I do know that other registrars are 5 days no matter, and that is fine. They're not lying to my face telling me that out of 12 domains, ONE of them is being held back in the name of fraud prevention when the other 11 they could care less about and let go.

    I am not saying anyone is lying to me on purpose, the nature of business seems to be based on lying, stretching truths, etc... I get that, and one needs to always be prepared to deal with it or stop engaging in business transactions.

    IMO business doesnt have to be shady and Epik is a clear example of that! :)

    Hey @Rob Monster, can Epik.com allow people to personally loan money using domain name(s) as collateral?

    Is this the idea behind DomainEquity.com? :)

    Question about mass updates. I have 29 domains in the Epik Marketplace and I want to mass-update my Google Analytics code across all of them for tracking visitors. Anyone know how to do this?

    @Rob Monster I think Epik Marketplace needs Keyword placement filter (starts with, ends with, contains). When there are few thousand domains listed, this filter can be very helpful.

    Yup, agreed.

    Also, working on language-specific dictionaries so you can filter names based on match to dictionary words including Chinese pinyin. Working on this one.

    @AGAME - Good idea.

    Send it to support and we'll take care of it, but I agree that it should be a menu item here:

    We'll get that implemented asap.

    Suggestion: it would be helpful be for us to be able to add the Google gode to our account somewhere and when we list names in the marketplace the google code gets added automatically to each listing.

    Can you use Voodoo templates without any images like on Bodis/ParkingCrew?
    Very often these images are completely irrelevant + they decrease CTR...

    I'm working on a little write-up to share lateron on NP and needed a quick WordPress install. Have wanted to try it b4 so a nice opportunity.

    Any issues with the platform? It's extremely slow and am getting a lot of origin server offline messages (bitmitigate). It's a nice feature but basically unusable at this point.

    If I have a buyer, what are the fees involved with payment plans?

    9% flat on those, if we do Escrow the fees can be lowered a bit depending on payment method.


    I haven't personally installed WP using the free blog feature (is that what you mean?) but I know that Bitmitigate can cache in your local computer for a few hours if you visit it right away.

    Yes, that's it. I never expected too much as it's a nice but free feature.

    The install works like a charm. Gave it half an hour or so for bitmitigate to process the domain but what worked was extremely slow, plus a lot of the errors I mentioned. I switched to another device in between to bypass cached stuff in my browser.

    I will give it another look later today and report back.

    It can be set in your Voodoo account settings...
    Default template without images.

    Thanks.

    So... I promised to report back on the free WordPress setup.

    Tried logging on to the admin area. Looks like it timed out or something and threw me another 'origin server offline' error. On reload it loaded. Trying to navigate around was ultra slow.

    WP is one resource hungry bitch. Pardon my french. I'd replace it with another blogging platform or drop this feature altogether if this is the general experience.

    Not that I'm complaining about some add-on that's provided for free at a domain registrar but the experience doesn't match the stellar performance of everything else Epik has to offer, in my experience and opinion.

    It was indeed quite kind of us to introduce a free Wordpress option. This was before we had SSL landers with a WYSIWYG editor and before we had a decent drag and drop sitebuilder. Wordpress might have peaked -- it's possible -- but the good news is that we are making it easy to upgrade free Wordpress to full paid hosting, and now also adding migration tools to scalable cloud via CloudChase.com.

    So many things to test. So little time :) I like cloudchase is hourly based. Will be checking that out! The cloud is where the money is at anyway. Though competition though.

    You run a lot of 'philanthropic' projects so it'd be nice to support some moneymakers.

    I don't think WP peaked btw. A fair % of the web runs on WordPress but it wasn't designed as a CMS which it is basically used for most of the time. It's bloated. Functional though and does do the job. It was just out of curiosity I tried it on your platform.

    In it's current state, let's put this bluntly, I'd kill the option and put resources where they matter. Have yet to hear from other people's experience so can just go by my own but it's a waste of resources, power, energy ;)

    Here is what is cooking at CloudChase.

    We are adding pre-made images to make it as easy to install any software like wordpress, drupal, cpanel, etc as the click of a button.

    The game plan is to make it super easy to help people with existing sites to migrate into the cloud and host in a scalable cloud without the AWS price tag.

    However, where that concept really makes money is in helping people who build sites to sell those websites. That is the end-game -- selling, leasing and financing digital real estate.

    The thesis here is that the people with money are short on time. So, we need to make it easy for people with money to buy sites from people with time. To do that, we have to streamline the sequence:

    - Create
    - Grow
    - Maintain
    - Sell

    If you know what a typical site sale looks like on Flippa, it is what I call a "yard sale" -- the assets are everywhere and not all compatible. So, we are fixing THAT.
