    @bhartzer and I have agreed to work on a new venture that is designed to protect end-users from buying damaged domains. Some of the risk factors that can be mitigated include:

    Prior Fraudulent Conveyance
    Domain Theft post purchase
    Negative SEO
    UDRP Complaint
    Civil Trademark Claims
    DDoS attack
    Copyright / DMCA complaint
    RBL/Spamhaus whitelisting
    DNS Hijack protection

    The product can be sold as a one-off risk assessment report for a fixed fee of $149 per domain. There will also be free API-based risk scoring estimate available to qualified partners, e.g. Estibot, etc.

    The product upsell is an insurance product with target pricing of either:

    (1) 1% of face value per year
    (2) 4% of face value for duration of ownership

    Sample domains all of which are taken:

    nameprotect.com
    nameprotector.com
    namedefender.com
    namecheck.com
    namefacts.com
    namefax.com
    domainfax.com
    domaincheck.com
    nameverify.com
    nameinspector.com
    namedetective.com

    Preferred domain:

    - .COM
    - Up to 12 characters
    - No hyphen
    - Should convey name protection or inspection as implied promise
    - Passes Radio test for word of mouth

    Decision on name selection to be made within 7 days.

    @DNWon had a good idea.

    He came up with NameSurety.com and I did register it just now.

    If someone has an idea for a hand-reg, I recommend registering it at Epik -- .COM is just $5.49. Also, if we end up buying it, the pain is much less.

    Alternatively, you can PM me and we'll buy it. If we end up choosing it, the person who suggested it gets a bounty. If we don't choose it, we'll gift you the domain. Zero risk. All upside.

    We spent way more than budget for Toki.com. So, it depends. Upper budget probably $25K.
