There was some news out today about Above.com and TheDomains.com specified the announcement as Above.com being the first registrar to share profits with their customers. Above.com is planning to give 60 % of the proceeds from expired domains that are auctioned on their Above.com marketplace. This is certainly cool but they are not the first. Back in the day Network Solutions actually shared some profits and then Fabulous.com rolled out their program.
I let zztv.org on Fabulous and it was purchased at NameJet which is where Fabulous expired inventory goes. The name was picked up with just one bid of $69. I received 60 %
On 5/27/11 I received an email:
