    This is actually on our to-do list, and I think we can improve on.
    I mentioned in a different thread that we will introduce new templates for the (sales) landers, so it makes sense to differentiate between the two types.

    Can you share a couple of links you created using the sales landers if you dont mind?

    if parking is separated from sales landers, then each one can have its own subsections for different options.

    I have made a sales lander for Mortgage.Link domain that I recently registered, although its more of a coming soon announcement site than a for sale site as I like to develop this domain someday if my health allows. (meanwhile its open to offers $$$$$$$$$ :) )

    Edited to add couple of more $ signs :)

    Good idea. I want it too.
    I feel the SSL Lander will become very popular among domain investors, so should be prominently displayed and all related functions consolidated into just one location, preferably just one page.

    We all like to brag about developing a million dollar website, but in reality I might have to wait a while for the Artificial Intelligence technology to become advanced enough to the point that AI can build and run such a website in a fully autonomous mode, I guess it doesn't hurt to dream about it now and wait for better days ahead in the future.

    As you know the evolution of making a website has come a long way, compare to 10 or 15 years ago it has become much easier to make a website as you can drag and drop what you want and in most cases have a fully functional website in less than an hour, but we still have a ways to go to see fully autonomous websites that are built and run by AI.

    I assume that when that day gets here it will be a plus to own a few high caliber domains. IMO

    Just in case some did not realize, if you use the NPs Watch Thread for this thread, and choose the option with email notification, you will get an email message every time there is a new post here.

    If we coupled that with the thread mainly being posts from Epik staff re new promotions (as opposed to me saying this :xf.sick: so the rest of us only commented rarely as @Ategy.com urged) it would achieve what many want, i.e. an email notification of new promotions. Of course, other people commenting has the effect of bumping the thread so it is more apt to be noticed on NPs, so I am a bit of two minds. The best solution would be a separate sign up email list for announcements of promotions (in addition to this thread).

    Thanks for all the great promotions of late Epik.

    Bob

    Thanks Jess. You and I have actually spoken in the past (email) and I am glad to see you here at namepros. It is comforting to know you and the others from the Epik team can be reached here for questions, comments and suggestions.

    (btw, one of the names I moved is/one of my favorites and I feel better having it at Epik now)

    The payment was successful, but in transfer status, it shows transfer failed and also got same in email.

    I assume it is normal till we add Auth codes...? I will add it afterwards...

    Confirmed -- you will need to add the auth codes for the transfers to actually start.

    We don't do them every day -- it is sometimes prompted by some NamePros member who wants to do transfer a few hundred .COM and then we open it to everyone.

    Soon you'll be flooded with domains from NPers if you continue such crazy deals! Ha ha! Seriously, I'd like to see such deal once every month so that I can transfer my domains in batches as they expire.

    As long as they are profitable, It's ok.
    But here, they will need a lot of landing page sales

    Thanks Kassey.

    We'll do aggressive happy hours for .COM from time to time, especially when large domain investors decide they want to make a move. We can then budget for it with the folks at Verisign since they require these money-losing promos to be funded up front.

    As for other TLDs, our policy is to work with the registries to provide domain investors with a one year window to achieve exceptional returns through arbitraging cheap domains into end-user sales and leases. I believe our SSL landers are key there.

    And by the way, I did note your thoughtful LinkedIn article here:

    Thanks to Frank Meester for bringing it to my attention. I don't actually think he is active on NamePros but he is another nice guy in this industry and who apparently does not miss much when it comes to domain industry news.
