    I read an article this morning that was an interview by Raymond Hackney at tldinvestors.com. He interviewed @bmugford of datacube. (By the way, I really enjoyed it).

    What I found interesting in the interview is that Brad doesn't invest in cctlds, except .us!

    He mentions having around 800-1000 .us domains and that he feels good .us names are undervalued.

    Here's the excerpt from the interview...

    "4) Have you delved into any of the country codes that have been hot since last we spoke, like .ai, .co or .io?

    The only ccTLD I really invest in is .US. I own a portfolio of around 800-1000 mostly top quality keywords, brands, and GEO.

    I just see the extension as undervalued in general. My inquiries and sales are solid.
    I have sold terms like Tech, Cloud, and others for serious prices.

    As far as secondary extensions go in general, I would only be willing to invest in the top tier terms. Basically the lower quality the extension, the higher quality the term needs to be."

    Here's a link to the entire interview:

    Thanks Raymond and Brad.

    Had the same thing happen to me. Dynadot is one of my favorite registrars, but imo they need to rethink how they handle these situations.

    ok, both offers are back and now ready to pay what i was asking for 1) €1,200 and 2) €1,100
    current scenario is countered 1100 one offer with 2400 and 1200 one with whopping €4,000 lol.

    if i lose this deal that be super duper stupid of me. its technically free money. 3 LLL are being sold under xxx and getting xxxx for this one seems seriously good offers.

    @Team Hexonet did a very bad job with this. I had a BO and they did not alert me of the auction start time. Poor service!

    I think they did because was in total 6 bidders . maybe not see email or what ever or even that they not sent a email should watch to see on Premiumsale i think this can be do by you and eventually send you a email to them.
    Auction was a legit one and i am doubt that you will pay 1005 USD for Transport.us end auction
    Most of all want cheap | Sorry not possible i am still here ( alive ) ..fight in a auction if you are a man a domainer or other
    Fight for Retail.us is in acution right now 515 USD on DynaDot
    And "After war a lot of warriors show up" is just a quote

    I actually would’ve paid more. They simply did not send notification. This would have went nice with drive.us

    I will not use Hexonet again.

    Dear Keith,

    thank you for your email. Yes our system got the domain transport.us. There were several applications for this backorder so you will get an email about the auction process https://wiki.hexonet.net/wiki/Backorder#Auctioning_of_multiple_backordered_domains .

    Best regards,
    Marco Bachmann

    They never sent an email. Also, this email was 8 days after they caught the domain. Shitty platform.

    I got the same email. The auction did not start on July 12, that was the day they caught it. In fact, it hadn’t even started on July 20 when they emailed. It started later that day. So yes, I was aware it was going to auction but when?

    They stated in the email on July 20 that I would get a notification of the auction start time. That didn’t happen! Tired of platforms getting away with this bullshit.

    It's been a while since I have made a post in this thread, I am glad to see that .US is now becoming so popular.

    @Kieth , maybe the notification came from Premium Sale instead of Hexonet and perhaps you didn't notice it or that it might have been filtered as spam,

    Things have changed a lot, I remember when GoDaddy had exclusive backorders for about $11 dollars on a first come first serve bases and who ever placed the backorder first was the one that got the domain when it was dropped.

    I caught a lot of nice .US domains this way, but I couldn't keep up with the renewal charges for year after year and had to let many of them go. Also I came to the conclusion that it was better to keep a handful of premium domains rather than having to renew hundreds of average domains.

    IMO

    Yes notification come from PremiumSale where PS is the platform for private auction for names that are caught by 1Api.net where 1Api.net is part from Hexonet where users request backorders
    Like on Snapnames - you request backorder there but is caught by udomain or what ever and if win the auction they moved names to your NetoworkSolutions account
    Yeh agree to focus on premium names rather than less value names
