    Not sure the exacts on that.

    But they do sell "partner premium domains"...

    ...

    and comparing the sale price for ExampleTest.com on Sav VS GoDaddy VS HugeDomains... it appears to be cheaper to checkout at Sav.

    ...

    Checking the WHOIS, or better yet, following the URL and typing in ExampleTest.com

    Yeah, that for me is a deal breaker. Afternic fast transfer is able to add 0.5%-1% sell through without landers. Losing that cannot be justified by saving couple of bucks on reg.

    Have just tried this registrar. Looks nice so far - easy sign up, neat uncluttered interface, adequate .com renewal price. Would be nice to see it getting more traction further and their rep joining to NamePros community. Thanks for sharing!

    Sav.com owner is Emerge Media inc.

    EmergeMedia.com is offline.

    Domaintools says EmergeMedia.com reg’d with GD

    You can sell domains there too, the landers are a sharp and precise 100% copies of DAN, I notified @DAN.COM long ago.
    That cheap .com registration was already there in september when people were going crazy over epik's 6.99$ 300 likes.

    If a domain is not worth paying $8.47 to renew or to transfer then it probably shouldn't be transfered, renewed or hand-reg even if you can at $6

    Hello Everyone! Nick from the Sav team here. We appreciate all the great feedback in this thread and look forward to be an active participant on namePros moving forward. Let me see if I can add some clarity to a few points in this thread:

    Payment Methods:
    We currently work credit card processor called Braintree which is actually owned by PayPal. We use their Drop-In credit card integration which means your card details are sent directly to Braintree and never once hit our own servers. Because your card is tokenized and securely stored at Braintree, we are able to automatically process payments for your won auctions and caught backorders without having to ask for an authorization every time like we would with PayPal. Expanding our payment methods is something this is on our roadmap though.

    NameKing:
    We did acquire the NameKing ICANN accreditation about a year ago and have been working to re-brand it as Sav. We will continue to add new features and expand the number of TLDs we offer.

    URL Redirects & DNS:
    We just launched this feature a few hours ago! You can now set free redirects and free DNS from your Sav.com account by going to the domain’s settings page.

    Welcome!

    Are you guys planning to join the Fast Transfer network with Godaddy any time soon?

    And, what is the secret of all those landers I see with SAV for domains priced at $295?

    You might want to consider joining afternic and sedo.... As fast transfer partners. And further develop the registrar-based marketplace. As a matter of fact, it would be competition to Dynadot, Epik and NameSilo ...
    Competition is always good :)

    Thanks! There are some investors like me for whom this is a must, regardless of promos. Let me know when this is done.

    And what about those $295 domains? Are you guys buying the names from drops and setting the low bin?

    $295, or $280?
    All the ones I stumbled upon in the past months were $280.
    Whoever has been doing that has great taste in buying the right domains from drops.

    Could be 280. I think this could be strategy by them.

    They might be buying and selling cheap for aftermarket.

    They can grow fast by buying for themselves instead of just focusing on discounts. At this price they might be selling 4% of names. If they register 10000 names, that is 400 sold for about 112000 minus 80k to renew, 32k profit.

    Not bad for 80k investment, the names won't transfer out, they will get end users. The only negative is they try to lure investors while competing with them at very low price point.

    This thread was enough to get me to sign up and check it out. But the 2 factor auth doesn't work for me. Has anyone set it up yet. I like to set up 2 factor before I do anything in an account. Even if its just a few hundred dollars. Get it fixed and I'll give it a try
