    The news this week about GoDaddy acquiring Uniregistry's portfolio, aftermarket and registrar brought a lot of comments both positive and negative. In the same vein as this post on domainnamewire, what do you guys think could be potential benefits of these two products working together? I'm not a domain investor, but on the surface it seems like it could lead to some new tools and opportunity for the industry.

    What new tools would you like to see as domain investors?

    Currently, we can see parking stats for each domain (how many visit that particular domain received).
    We can also see all traffic for all domains in one's account, but on that page it doesn't say which particular domain is receiving traffic.

    Example it shows 10 visits today, 10 visits for all 3 domains in my account.
    Doesn't say this domainA got 5 visits, domainB 3 visits, and domainC 2 visits, totalling 10.
    That information is only available on individual domain settings page.
    We want it on the global traffic page (parking performance).

    There, the parking performance page.
    We only have total traffic for all domains by day, week, month.
    Doesn't say which domain is receiving traffic.
    You can find that info on a particular domain's setting page though, under parking data.
    Since the information is already available, it should be easy to implement.

    I have x domain in my account.
    Being able to allocate x% for example 30% of sales price of this domain to another person (using his email address or seller ID (a number) ). Accessible from individual domain settings page.
    All other standard brokerage and payment fees still in effect.

    I guess. Here is the idea.
    I access one domain marketplace's setting, allocate x% of sales price to this seller, and that's it.
    Nothing more.
    So that when it sells through a Uni broker for example, same old 15% uni commission + x% which I have selected for the seller.

    So that it doesn't bother anyone on Uni/Godaddy's side.

    Not as complicated as fractional ownership.
    Just a marketplace setting.

    Hopefully the brokers from godaddy, afternic and uniregistry will sit down together and share experiences and skills/tools/techniques. I've had sub par 'broker' inquires with no/0/zip follow up after the standard 500 opening godaddy offer (I countered of course). More than once the person paying for the 'broker' found me later through type in and bought the name(s)...nothing huge, a few low xxxx and a couple mid xxxx. Maybe the commissions to be earned did not warrant sending another email in response to my counter. No worries as I put that commission money in my pocket.

    As an investor I want low reg and renewal fees...with a no or low ($1) charge for privacy. I've moved many hundreds of domains away from godaddy because of this. If an investor/domainer regs a certain amount of names a year and/or they have paid the 'club' dues to get lower pricing, the privacy should be free. Keep on charging the general public for their one, two or ten package of names, but give those of us that spend thousands a year a break. After all, those of us that are addicted will put that money into acquiring more/better names.

    The issue is they are losing those sales, and data of the payment plans to Dan, Epik, and Namesilo. So why not offer it in house, the platform has the ability built in already, but it just hasn't been turned on outside of broker assisted transactions only.

    You can do it with the brokers now, the commission is 15%, plus $40 a month domain holding fee, all commissions are taken up front, and deducted from the first payment.

    I would say let the sellers pick a down payment amount, and then terms of 1-60 months.
