    I had noticed that article early on, but couldn't connect the dots until now...

    The article cites:

    But I wasn't sure if that Elite Domains was the same Elite Domains as the $280 seller until I cross matched the $280 WHOIS phone number with the UBG.com WHOIS phone number; and they are a match.

    So taking some comments from the 2016 DotWeekly article

    Was the previous Elite Domains business plan to stuff some high quality domains with thousands of mediocre domains to score a huge portfolio sale?

    Here are a few .coms I have found that are currently sold via SAV lander for USD 280, some with an additional price for a 1-year-extension. I hope it's OK to post these, otherwise just let me know.

    PrimeCop “Cop” like Cannibus, not the police.

    But then,iffy at best. —Colloquial informal term

    DNHive, i’m biased to “DN” names, even then few make the cut. Not sure how feel this one.

    PrimeCop, maybe? Even then, Agree on all.

    Did someone notice, a lot of times Sav auctions have only 1 bid and that goes high with no competition or other bidder.
    Is it the seller bidding on self name or bid from other account or shill bidding?
    I mean if there are no bids, I'll start with lowest and not with 100.
    What I could think of- The seller may himself or herself win the auction as only bid and end up paying $4 commission for own $100 bid. If someone really wants the name, the bid will be higher then $100 ending up a good deal for the seller.
    This way one can bypass the "Auction starts at $1" rule.

    One such example.

    This is a Reg premium name from the backorder.
    m_n and someone esle also backordered it, and m_n backordered it first so his bid is there by default. The other person who BOed it either forgot to change his mind.
    Reg Premium will be priced high. There are names that start at 999 as well

    The one dollar no reserve auction is when you put a name for Auction.
    The above example is a Backorder Auction

    nope, these are premium names people caught. The high price is the renewal cost*

    Thanks. That's a learning. Is there an identifier how to bifurcate except single high bid?

    So I ended up buying one of these $280 Elite Domains...

    WHOIS update date reflected immediately. But the domain still appears to be registered at:

    Hosting Concepts B.V. d/b/a Registrar.eu
    IANA ID: 1647

    upload_2021-4-14_10-57-37.png


    The purchase price was $280 flat, so I'm wondering if the domain will be transferred to Sav.com IANA ID: 609 automatically, or if the domain is going to remain at <Hosting Concepts B.V. d/b/a Registrar.eu IANA ID: 1647> until I renew, and that pays for the transfer into sav.com + one year renewal... or?

    Additionally.. EliteDomains (which appears to be previously or still connected to Sav.com CEO @AnthosChrysnathou) needs to do a better job vetting domains priced with a $280 BIN...

    Sav CEO needs to do better job; be present.
    The most seen about him in DNJournal piece, but yet to see him publicly comment anything.

    He leaves it all up to Nick R.

    why think Sav CEO is “Batman” ^^ Still hoping.

    It this context, it seems more likely @Simpsonrocket was referring to ExpiredDomains.net.

    I wonder if pricing domains at $280 helps with marketing Sav.com and customer acquisition...

    upload_2021-4-15_10-12-39.png

    Is it the landing pages allegedly converting 218% better, or is it their $280 BIN pricing model?
