On February 15, SnapNames will raise the starting bid for backorders for all deleting domain names from $59 to $69. This starting bid increase applies only to orders for names that are deleted from their respective registries (not the expiring or privately held names listed from registrar partners or sellers).

This change applies exclusively to new orders—any previously placed deleting domain name backorders will be grandfathered in and remain at a starting bid amount of $59; thus, $59 will be the opening bid if the name enters our system. (Note, if you are the only bidder in this scenario, like today you will be the buyer at $59. If another party backorders the same name after February 15, that party’s opening bid will be at $69 and the system will alert you to raise your bid if you so elect.)

As is the case today, all non-deleting domain names will enter our system at the starting bid price specified by the listing party. Opening bids for those names will stay at the amounts originally set.

There is no change to auction procedures. If there is only one bidder for a name at the time of its availability, the name will be awarded to that bidder. For names with more than one interested party, the names will go to auction and the highest bid at or above the starting bid amount will prevail.

Questions can be directed to the SnapNames support team:

GoDaddy Servers were down at 10 AM GMT.  None could access their Website or any hosted websites. 

I read quite a bit about the perils of GoDaddy, and I know their support team at time sucks :P, but their offers are good.  Okay now 1and1 offers are good, the major difference is GoDaddy’s MySql DB space is the limit of the hosting space and 1and1 offers only 100MB per DB.  Take that into consideration of photo galleries as such.  Oh 1and1 gives 2GB of Email and GoDaddy gives 10MB, now that sucks.

DOT COM (.com) prices are bound to increase by 7% every four ears. This means as the world is paying lower prices for internet telephony and where the prices are dropping .com is going to increase. hmmm.. let me see so in 12 years time it would cost way too much to buy a domain than to make a 20 hour internet phone call across the world.
