October .COM Mega Promo at Epik We want to be the favorite place for professional domain investors to sell, lease and park/lander their domains. We are building the most complete suite of tools and assembling the most exceptional team our industry has ever seen. Our most recent acquisitions of Bitmitigate.com, Sibyl.Li and now DomainFlippa.com/NameBrokers.com/NamInvestors.com are all part of a comprehensive roadmap to bring forward a new Golden Age for domains, and specifically for .COM. When it comes to .COM, the reality is that most of the best inventory is taken. Once more people realize that .COM is back stronger than ever, I suspect we'll see fewer .com drops. The after-market is rapidly becoming the primary market. After all, it’s better for a domain investor to sell a domain for $10 than to drop a domain and get nothing. We are thinking about these issues and are committed to helping as many people as possible become successful domain investors. There is plenty of upside for everyone. So, with the goal of becoming the #1 place to hold your "keeper" .COM domains, we want to make it a win-win when more folks move their .COM to Epik. By all means, take full advantage of the various .COM cheap registration promos that are sometimes being offered out there, e.g. $1 .COM from Network Solutions if you can figure out how to manage a ton of unique accounts there. However, for your keepers, I would just move them to Epik and leverage our free tools. Now, not everyone has a lot of .COM domains to transfer to Epik. We get that. However, if a "domain whale" comes along and wants to move 10,000 .COM domains to Epik, we'll want to give them a great price. However, in the spirit of “Rising tides raise all boats,” we also want to give everyone else a great price. Why not spread the wealth, and have the domain whale, be a domain hero? When someone transfers into Epik the following number of domains, both they, and you will receive this pricing within the associated time frame. We have been calling these Happy Hours. For October, depending on who wants to do a bulk transfer, we'll make both creates and transfers dirt cheap based on the size of the incoming Domain Whale. Our every day price for .COM is now set to $7.49 for creates and transfers -- full-service, all-inclusive, with any payment method. When the whales show up, here is what you can expect: 500+ .COM Transfers: $6.99 for 3 hours for both Creates and Transfers. 2500+ .COM Transfers: $6.49 for 6 hours for both Creates and Transfers. 5000+ .COM Transfers: $5.99 for 12 hours for both Creates and Transfers. 10,000+ .COM Transfers: $5.49 for 24 hours for both Creates and Transfers. (WOW!) As for .COM backorders, they will remain at just $8.49 for all of October. It is first come first serve, so forget about hand-registering your dropcatches. For $8.49, if you are first in line at Epik, you will blow away just about anyone hand-registering or using APIs to dropcatch. @Gube has been hard at work with the engineers to introduce dropcatching upgrades that should allow Epik backorders to be fast but cheap. There are no auctions -- just first come first serve. Let the October season of DOMAINER WHALE WATCHING BEGIN!
