    That is their downfall, unknown extensions, unrealistic renewals ... no control if the registrar raise the renewals = FAIL

    Rod.Tv currently redirects to Fred Hollows, unsure of fake bids regarding .Tv I would not argue that the Namepros thread lived on hype for a long time though

    Now I realise what you are referring to, the 365/Tv auction was bid on multiple times by First at Namejet. But here's the thing, First is apparently a conglomerate of chinese investors. They may have been bidding against each other?

    Wasn't think of that, just .tv generally, e.g. england.tv.

    Not sure on 365.tv, it sure is a very odd sale though. Probably fake.

    It is far more common with with new and alt tlds because of the poor market in those extensions.

    First official ntld failure - .wed. ICANN emergency procedures invoked.

    "The key thing keeping registrars and registrants away in droves has been its policy that domains could be registered (for about $50 a year) for a maximum period of two years before a $30,000 renewal fee kicked in."

    I thought this article was a classic example of how things go for those using new tlds,

    "Blockchain Company Swarm Fund Acquired Swarm.com"


    https://www.namepros.com/blog/blockchain-company-swarm-fund-acquired-swarm-com.1066480/

    What an absolute mess, where 2 companies just go through multiple extensions because they are just on the the wrong tld.

    One has eventually bought the .com thankfully, but you can see the other company swarm.me/swarm.co has exactly the same issue. Seems to be many cases of companies starting on the wrong tld and buying more wrong tlds to try and fix it.

    If swarm.me is ever successful they are probably going to have to rebrand completely with the .com now used by a well funded company.
