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

Welcome to Identity


The idea of a centralized login makes sense but with the track record Epik has on security the thought of this federated identity makes me overly cautious to use Epik services.

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.
