    Nothing today. We are waiting for another big whale to decide that it is time to come to Epik and then we'll offer the same bulk deal for everyone. Folks with 500+ .COM domains to bulk transfer can get the party started for everyone!

    @Sufyan Alani is organizing one. It will be a flash sale but not as good as the ridiculous $0.99 deal we did with Neustar twice during July as part of their anniversary sale.

    I own GoldRefinery.com. I expect a very nice payday from it eventually, but hoping the domain market heats up.

    Well I went a little overboard "saving" money and snagged 25 nice names I've been saving up - Ouch!

    Anyone else experiencing it holding up on search and never yielding if domain available?

    Happy Hour went a little longer than planned, but we'll do another later in the week when the next whale shows up with a bulk .com transfer order.

    All systems normal tonight. We continue to make speed improvements to the search/register process. Marketplace and escrow updates are coming soon.

    And broad multi-language and multi-currency version of the Domain Manager is right after that. I am sure there are a few folks here that will appreciate that.

    As soon as someone has a large load of .COM to transfer we'll open the $6.99 COM transfer again for a few hours. We normally open up the Happy Hour for folks moving or bulk buying 500+ .com domains at a time, however, if any NP member has 100+ .com to bulk transfer, just PM @Sufyan Alani or I and we'll open up the happy hour for everyone.

    I don't have a large portfolio, but I am just curious as to how the big portfolio transfers like 5000 or 10000 or even 50000 domains to Epik are handled as far as handling all the Auth Codes and approving all the emails by the portfolio owner. (just curious)

    Fair question. Bulk transfers are done here:

    https://www.epik.com/transfer

    FOA verification emails are no longer required as GDPR trashed all of that when registrants had their WHOIS emails hidden.

    As a result, the bulk transfer process is quick these days and relatively painless for most registrars. The DNS is inherited by default.

    WHOIS privacy is also free and enabled by default though you can set custom domain profiles if you like. See here:

    https://www.epik.com/support/knowledgebase/how-to-create-and-apply-domain-profiles-to-domains/

    For some registrars, notably NetSol, the only real pain is in retrieving the auth codes. We provide a free transfer concierge service to manage that task.

    Now, there is a clever idea -- an API for checking domain prices and then running queued batches when the happy hour starts.

    If you do code that, perhaps put it in Github as open source

    Some big API upgrades are coming soon -- marketplace and escrow API commands.

    Also, a nice preview of the new marketplace here:

    https://stagingmarket.epik.com
    https://stagingmarket.epik.com/officetarget.com
    https://stagingmarket.epik.com/premium

    Might go live today actually.

    It looks good :)
    Just a few things to update
    - The contact owner text is going out of the button (1)
    - On mobile, It would be great if the Make an offer box was just under "own this domain today" (2)
    (For domains with a payment plan, It looks really good)
