    Multiple redirects do appear with many default server or control panel setups imo... This can be fixed as far as I remember (had similar config somewhere once, was able to fix myself with no major headaches). Epik appears to be using nginx for redirects. On a spot view:

    https://serverfault.com/questions/802961/avoid-double-redirect-nginx
    https://serverfault.com/questions/258378/remove-www-and-redirect-to-https-with-nginx

    Registrar-based redirects do basically work. But, for advanced redirect rules, with better stats etc. - an own server is a must... Even a small LAMP Stack on vps makes you a God :) Multiple robots.txt files by subdomain or protocol? GeoIP-based redirects? Redirecting httpS? Sky is the limit... And, for registrars it is just a headache since the customers are asking but not paying for this particular service...

    I also use 1and1 for redirects - and no such chains there.
    Just 1 external redirect as expected.

    And not just Epik forwarding...
    The same abnormal chains using Epik parking...
    To see - open httpstatus.io ("Canonical domain check" must be enabled) and submit any Epik parked domain...

    Is there (and if so, where can I find) a format for excel/csv that I can upload my domains in that includes pricing and all the other info fields? Would like to update all my domains on Epik.

    I like many things about Epik,
    therefore I am transferring more domains there.


    Anyway, two things could be improved:

    1. The marketplace search function

    Let's say you have the domain name HotelSearch.com (example, not my domain).

    If "hotel" is entered, then probably all (2000) domains with "hotel" are listed, but yours will not be seen.

    If "search" is entered, then all domains with "search" are (probably randomly) listed, and yours will most probably not be shown (without long browsing).

    If both keywords ("hotel" and "search") are entered, then no domain is shown. HotelSearch.com would have been the perfect result of this search.

    It means that only one keyword can be entered. And then it is a lottery.

    2. Categories of a domain in the marketplace cannot be edited (and are randomly selected)

    e.g.:

    American Lawsuit .com is in the category "FOOD".

    @dombastic

    Thank you for the feedback.

    We will share the comments with the development team and will resolve these issues. Especially the multiple keyword searches.

    Currently, we are in the process of updating the marketplace as @Rob Monster shared.

    Some of the features and improvements that are coming:
    • Mobile view enhancements
    • Better Navigation and browsing experience
    • Layout fixes on the Marketplace domain detail page
    • You will be able to manage your domain's settings from the Marketplace front-end side when you are logged in.
    • Global enhancements to the User Interface and User Experience
    • and More

    Not sure if this link error has been reporter earlier but here is something I wanna share.

    After one approves Afternic Fast Transfer email - the success message shown has an incorrect hyperlink.
    See screenshot for more details.

    The "Terms and Conditions" text is linking to https://registrar.epik.com/ instead of https://www.afternic.com/legal#terms_of_use

    I see that only parked domains registered at epik show a P indicating it's parked

    I think all parked domains should show a P if parked

    Quick question regarding the NL venue. If you put in a bid it states you will need to have enough account credit to cover the bid + renewal. Does it really have to be account credit?

    What I you have an attached CC or PayPal agreement, or masterbucks even? I'm not a big fan of having a lot of money as account credit with each and every registrar I deal with.

    It works as long as there is a valid payment method on deposit. The system will try account balance first because it is the fastest to process but then it will process using other methods that are on the account.

    Thank you. That was very fast. From your POV I understand account credit is the fastest and easiest to work with. Have a great weekend!

    Sure, people who use our API or "Express checkout" feature for hand-reg during the drop do best when they use in store credit as the payment method since it saves time when a second is an eternity.

    Very good point and solid advice for those who handreg on the drop!

    Every microseconds count if that's your gameplay, on the drop, that's where a lot of money is being made imo.

    Just updated my portfolio on Epik with marketplace prices. Was surprised to come back to an email for each domain I updated.

    Also, I can't add my .ci domain on Epik :(

    Dynadot shows "MakeOffer" domains from Sedo... In other words - MLS works in full.
    At Epik - only BIN domains.

    P is displayed for other registrars as well, but only Verisign TLDs.

    Sedo just agreed to give us the full MLS inventory. It should be imported shortly.

    Since yesterday I don't receive any email notifications from Epik...
    When I list my domains on Epik marketplace, when I update nameservers, even lack of expiration warnings (1 day prior ED)...
    Nothing.

    The reason of undelivered (or delivered to spam) emails may be epik.com domain itself. A very common antispam plugin, spamassassin, shows the following:

    X-Spam-Report:
    * 9.0 KAM_BODY_URIBL_PCCC Body contains URI listed in PCCC URIBL
    * (https://raptor.pccc.com/RBL)
    * [URIs: epik.com]
    * 3.0 KAM_FROM_URIBL_PCCC RBL: From address listed in PCCC URIBL
    * (https://raptor.pccc.com/RBL)
    * [listed in epik.com.wild.pccc.com. IN]

    9+3=12 negative points --> instant spam.

    This raptor pccc might have blacklisted epik because of an old spamming activity
    ( https://www.namepros.com/threads/inquiry-from-epik-gd-expiration.976383/ ) which no more happens, thank goodness. It still affects e-mails from Epik, including marketplace emails to new buyers or to potential buyers. Epik should either use some other domain for outgoing emails, making sure that no epik.com urls are included into the message bodies, or try to exclude epik from this blacklist. In the meantime, anybody who needs to receive emails from epik systems should better proactively whitelist them imho. I have posted the above spamassassin diagnostics right here @ np 1 ot 2 times earlier, but nothing was changed :(

    Who is the best guy to get domain locks removed? My account is ID verified yet again chat needed to escalate to management and I don't want to bugger Rob when not necessary.

    Sent an email to the guy who's supposed to handle these things nearly a week ago.

    Edit: solved.
