A very promising new system with a few bugs to work out.
Uniregistry finally unveiled Uniregistry Market today. The upgraded sales and parking system will eventually replace DomainNameSales.com.
My initial reaction is that Uniregistry Market delivers on what the company promised at NamesCon this year. It’s a clean, easy-to-use system with a nice stats dashboard for each domain. I know that Frank Schilling strives for an Apple-like experience, and this is very close.
Migrating from Domain Name Sales to Uniregistry Market was a cinch.
It’s much easier to see domains at a glance and to clean up your portfolio than with Domain Name Sales. I was able to easily go through and delete names I no longer own, since domains are sortable by owner.
There are a few bugs to be worked out, for sure. But most are minor, such as “Avg Daily Traffic” being reported in dollars, not visits, in the grid view (e.g $16.20 instead of 16.2 views). It also took a long time for the system to process the removal of domains from my account. Perhaps the servers are overloaded today.
Tooltips would be a big help. I can’t make sense of the data in the “15x PPC” column, for example. What does 6.9 for 15x PPC mean?
I’m curious about privacy settings, too. Each domain has an option to “Share Market Data”, which indicates it will share inquiries, quotes and sales prices. Turning this option off notes “Hide When Sold.” Does this mean it’s all public until the domain is sold? I reached out to Uniregistry for comment on this.
In general, I think Uniregistry Market is going to be a great tool for domain name sellers. It still has some kinks to work out, though.
