Why does Federated Identity make me so leery? (1 Viewing)

I have been using epik for a few years now. I have yet to have a problem with them. Their Escrow service is also top notch.

Is MyId the only Canadian Registrar that does Escrow? I used them about 10 years ago or more for one so I’m not even sure if they still do it.
 
Technically DAN.com is a Canadian Registrar now that they are part of GoDaddy

So pushing a sale to dan at 5% is one of my goto options.

Would be nice to deal in CAD though, I think only Escrow does that.
 
Might be a question for @FM to bring up at his next meeting at head office.
I've been taking a bit of a look at this, but this is not on our immediate roadmap at this point. I'm sure we'll revisit it though at one point.
 
Epik Escrow was great before they shut it down for "Upgrade / Maintenance" for like 2 months. And now the fees have gone up and it's not worth it anymore because of payment hassle. Domain investors are still waiting for payments and are told they'll get paid but are not given any time on when they'll be paid.
alert - The fund can't be withdrawal from Epik.com via Masterbucks wallet

When I used them on a few occasions, I had no issues but to be honest, I haven’t used them since PayPal was no longer an option for withdrawals. It’s unfortunate they raised their fees. If I recall, it was one of the best in the industry.
 
So now we need to know what is! :)
Next to be released is our new client area, but that is not in testing yet, so it's still out a bit. We've made a bunch of enhancements to transfer status and transfer handling amongst other things over the last weeks and with regards to domain synchronization.
 
@FM Any chance on making a push of a domain from one WHC account to another more automatic? I did a push last week and it’s far from automatic.

Not directly planned at the moment, but on my list of nice to have/want to have features, for sure.
 
Someone posted this on NamePros -

Epik must be really short on cash. At least they are treating everyone's renewals the same, ie waiting till the last minute before they spend the money at the registry on the renewal.
Their domain federatedidentity (that they used to use for logins) expired on 4-13, but they didn't renew it until yesterday 5-24 (41 days after expiry).


Then we went on to mock them about not being able to afford $10.

Masterbucks.com is up for renewal in October.

They have under (5) months to raise the $10 to renew it.

Then they need to raise another $10 by December when NameLiquidate.com expires.

Man, that one didn't age well in retrospect.

It was in May 2022 when they allegedly took a $327,000 "escrow" payment and didn't deliver the domain or refund resulting in the current RICO lawsuit.

A lawsuit was filed against Epik - OnlineDomain.com

Then it was in late September 2022 when they scammed Kathleen out of $100K. They kept the real money and gave her magic beans (Masterbucks) that could not be withdrawn.

That sounds like me.
