Here are some of the new features I like and an upcoming feature I’m looking forward to.
Dan.com rolled out a new user interface last week. Many of the changes are small (but nice) usability adjustments. But there are also new and updated features, and a big one is coming in a couple of weeks.
Here are some of the new features:
Sort by extension – This is helpful if you want to update your pricing for a particular extension, such as .xyz. Or, if you let a bunch of domains in an extension expire, sorting by extension can make it easier to remove them from your Dan.com account.
Bulk actions – Change pricing information, sales page settings, etc., for multiple domains at once.
New verification nameserver – Dan.com provides two ways to verify your ownership of domains previously added to Dan.com by another user. One is to add a DNS TXT record, and the other is to add a third nameserver. Unfortunately, its previous .hosting nameserver didn’t work with some registrars. So it added another nameserver that users can add to their domains that all registrars accept.
There’s also a forthcoming feature that should be very helpful. The company tells me that categories will be added in the coming weeks, allowing you to put domains into groups and apply different settings to them. A couple of weeks ago, on the DNW Podcast, I mentioned how you can’t use a different pricing strategy for domains at Dan.com. Right now, I have my default set to BIN, but I can’t change a high-priced domain to BIN + Make Offer. The category feature will allow you to put a group of domains into its own category and apply a different sales page type (such as BIN + Make Offer) to domains in that category.
