Understand Your Exposure w/ Domain Services

I extensively use assorted major domain services such as Escrow.com, Afternic, Uniregistry, and Sedo. They provide important sales services, often without up-front costs. You typically need pay them only when your product is sold. Their costs are not unreasonable, and their published services are dependable. I am happy with them generally.

There are a few problems however.

Some of these services deliberately keep buyer & seller apart, and maintain a measure of secrecy.

They promote fixed prices, Buy-it-Now (BIN), which can be difficult or impossible to edit quickly.

A possible big problem is that they have insider access to your unpublished data & information as well as that of others throughout the industry. And their employees (or the services themselves) can take advantage of their insider market position. Might they directly buy your under-priced domain?

This is most perverse when one or more newly-made big sales leaves your domain or portfolio suddenly under-priced. Others can act before you hear anything.

These markets are largely unregulated -- Watch out for yourself!




Single-character .com EMOJI = 29

Four single-character .com emoji dropped in January 2019, and after dropping they cannot be renewed. This is due to ICANN and IDNA2008, which "prohibits graphic symbols and similar devices that have code points but are not used as basic elements of any writing system."

Lost were:

xn--m3h.com ☂.com umbrella emoji
xn--tci.com ✡.com Star of David emoji
xn--n4h.com ☦.com Orthodox Cross emoji
xn--e6h.com ♣.com Black Club Suit emoji

That leaves only 29 single-character .com emoji domains in the wild. They are grandfathered, and can be re-registered and transferred, but if they drop they follow their four cousins into oblivion. Those that are for sale seem very reasonably-priced considering their rarity and wide visual appeal beyond written language.

ʘ.com

Clever marketing hook of Target stores: Appears like a Target, with .com:



















The target and .com are only shorthand, a kind of suggestion.
Target does not own such an address. But they could do.

They could own generic symbol ʘ.com
ʘ.com
Character name = Latin Letter Bilabial
can also input as xn--lpa.com

Effective Guerrilla marketing could use this ʘ symbol,
perhaps as a key to unlock sale prices, to gain a password for
special entry to their stores, or to win limited-edition prizes.
(the symbol is somewhat arcane, how to input is unclear, so mystery deepens)

ʘ.com is just now for sale. The website is active.
It looks like an eye / bullseye, so the site markets vision aids.
Who could make better use of the symbol and its website?
