Nice touch.You also pointed out sour sales deals… We have tools that will keep you happy and safe. “Linked Accounts” Simply find a buyer, sign a contract with that buyer and that contract says he will pay you in 6 months. You then give him linked account access to one domain (the domain you are selling) and give him all permissions except to unlock, transfer out, delete or push the domain. So the domain remains "secure". During this contract you have 100% full control over the domain, but the buyer does not have "full" control". If the sale does not complete, you remove his linked account access and the domain is yours again. If pending the legal contract goes full through - you can now transfer the domain to him. Best part is you don't have to deal with credit cards and 60 to 90 day chargebacks!
I'm sure you can understand that when people hear your name, they think expired domains since those who work the drops see your name every day. I must say I am quite impressed and envious of what you have achieved and how far you've come since i first noticed you getting a number of names in 2009 however in the process you've made it next to impossible for the average domainer to get a half decent expired domain without going though snapnames, namejet ect. and even then you beat them out sometimes. Like equity said, its all business and of course you can't be faulted for being successful. I think you can understand why people might think namebright could be used as another avenue for expired domains though since you are the king of the drops these days.Jasonn - expiring domain names is not the intention in building NameBright. We built a great piece of software that I am EXTREMELY proud of. This has been a very large project over the last few years and I want to share the tools we have access to ourselves with domainers, to help them be more successful. I believe that bringing domainers in eventually brings in more end users. Domainers sell domains, push them to the buyers and that becomes a driving force for our registrar and creates growth.
