    This is what happens when bouncing between three monitors. Yep, took a look at the page as others show above. I should have said 'took a look at my marketplace offers'. So, for clarification:

    'I took a look at my marketplace offers and it is about 50/50 verified vs. non verified buyer.'

    For me 80%+ of Epik inquiries are NON-verified.
    Without checkmark icon.

    To stop this NON-verified parade - I applied Minimum Offer for all my MakeOffer domains, $321 or higher.
    Because too hard task for Epik to verify them.

    I have a question about Epik backorders. Well, actually it applies to any backorder at any registrar. (Note: I'm not one of the lazy people who just ask and put in no effort... I have done extensive searches here and elsewhere but not found a definitive answer.)

    For expiring domains registered at Epik, does an Epik backorder have "priority" over those at other registrars? That is, will the domain be held/caught at Epik before being dropped and available to others?

    Of course this same question applies to any other registrar: do they hold/catch expiring domains for their own customers first before being released? I have heard that the current registrar effectively "keeps" the domain for themselves or their backorders but can't confirm.

    Thanks.

    No, it's put back in the pool for anyone to register on day 6. Once in pending delete, it cannot be recovered or renewed by the registrant or the registrar..

    Thanks for that.

    How about when it's in Redemption Period?

    I'm looking at one which just went through the Daily Diamonds with no bids and the status just changed to Redemption Period afterwards. While in DD it was Active or ClientTransferProhibited status. It reached its official expiry about the end of May. So it went about 6 weeks after expiry (don't know what happened in the middle), got to DD and only then did it change to redemption status. I think I saw somewhere the expected drop date is early August, so that's now another 4 weeks approx.

    In Redemption the domain can be restored by its losing registrant only... and with penalty up to $1xx.

    And again lack of any email notifications...
    Traditional issue, repeats again and again from time to time...

    I test my domains periodically, and very often I see 10-20 seconds delays - and only then your parking lander loads...
    What you do during this delay, you scan my PC or what???

    Minor issue, but still... This is what the payment method badges look like on smartphones. Payment badges_Epik.jpg

    @Rob Monster Could you implement payment plans for the domains that are not registered at Epik?

    Such plans are impossible - if they don't control your domains.
    They must reside in Epik hands/escrow.

    This is what happens when the web devs get too lazy and enabled the so-called "responsive design" instead of manually configuring the image parameters separately for each device type (desktop/tablet/mobile).

    I did a little web building some time ago and the "responsive design" caused a horrible experience on mobile. Once I disabled it and did the manual work everything went back to normal.

    I just disabled these badges for all my parked domains in a bulk.
    Thanks.

    @Rob Monster One more suggestion regarding landing pages. It would be great if you allow the opportunity to manually choose the multiple currencies which display depending on the country. E.g. I'd like only USD, EUR, GBP, and maybe a few more currencies to display on my landers, since in some countries the numbers are insane. In the screenshot, you can see the amount of $9 800 in UZS.

    Usually it happens on my 1st attempt...
    Next visits in the same browser and on the same day - it loads without this abnormal pause, immediately.
    So like some scan process... at least for visitors from Ukraine.

    I guess it is probably cached for you already when you check the second time around...

    Maybe, but issue is in 1st attempt, such delays up to ~20s...
    Most visitors will close this empty tab, where nothing happens.
    So loss of sales and inquiries.

    We do not do any scans to any visitors of anywhere. We also can't replicate the behavior you're describing. These were non-cached results of 2 domains parked @ Epik:
    https://check-host.net/check-report/1e3f8b0kea1
    https://check-host.net/check-report/1e3f979kad7

    As you can see, it loads within one second on most locations, including 2 places in Ukraine.

    We'll be happy to investigate further if you start a support ticket.

    Thank you!

    When parking, you have the option to force the default currency. See here: [​IMG]

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for your report, I've verified this as well. I've alerted our design team to make the appropriate changes.

    EDIT: This has now been changed. Could you please have a look and see how it looks like now?

    Yes, today it works...
    But yesterday was this delay, and it happens/repeats from time to time, like on Epik's black days.

    + fix this traditional issue with your mailserver.
    It doesn't work on your black days as well, so we lose all notifications (including Marketplace offers).

    Why purchase this domain with Epik?
    Please translate it on your landers - this phrase is displayed in English regardless of language.
