Last week I placed a back order using Name.com's Domain Nabber, the domain I wanted was not caught by Name.com but rather BatDomains.com. I had never heard of BatDomains.com and did a little research and now it seems as if the registrar is actually for sale.
The registrar is listed for sale on Flippa.com. The listing is not filled out too well but here is what it says:
is an ICANN accredited registrar for .com and .net that is available
for sale. The owner is leaving the sector and is selling the registrar. Batdomains.com is operated as a private registrar that is owned by a European company.
Many of the domains that were once in the registrar have been moved
and is virtually clean for one to takeover. All documentation including
billing with ICANN and Verisign is up-to-date.
This is a fantastic opportunity to enter into the domain registrar
business with the imminent explosion of new gTLDs coming on board
(1200+), registries of these new gTLDs will be looking to registrars to
promote and sell. A great time to enter this industry sector.
The buy it now is $50,000 with a starting offer of $30,000 listed on the site. The auction will run for another 26 days.
