Godaddy NameMatch Recommends Aftermarket Name to Buy

Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home1/theman37/public_html/ on line 103

Late yesterday night I received an email from godaddy that said is available. Buy it now before it's taken.

I am the owner of By the subject of the email it seems like the name is available to purchase and I have see godaddy recommend owning the .net and other extensions of the same domain while I have been cheeking out before. That name godaddy was trying to sell is a premium domain listed for $100.  Here is exactly what was said in the email.

Go Daddy® NameMatch found that FARMINGTONHILLSATTORNEY.NET* is available as of January 20, 2011 9:00 AM MT. Don't miss your opportunity to get this premium version of FARMINGTONHILLSATTORNEY.COM for $100.00.

Go Daddy does not own these names, but is one of the few registrars offering them on behalf of their third-party owners. Premium Domain Names are more valuable than typical domain names because they are based on common words and phrases.

To purchase this Premium Domain Name through Go Daddy without the hassle of negotiating, simply click BUY IT NOW. Ownership will be transferred right to you. Act now before it's too late.

Thanks as always for being a Go Daddy customer.

My favorite line is when they say get your premium version of when a .net would never be considered premium to a .com. It seems that the name is just not for sale at godaddy and may be part of some larger sales network, but I could not find the name listed anywhere else.

If I owned the .net of a domain and godaddy sent this email to the owner of the .com I would be very happy. I think it carries much more weight than a typical end user email because it is from Godaddy, a huge brand who people trust. I am guessing that to get them to send the email all you have to do is list a domain for sale as a premium domain name in the godaddy marketplace. The owner of another extension then must have their domain name registered at godaddy so that they have their email on file. But all of this is speculation as my google search about namematch turned up nothing.

Has anyone had any other experience with these emails, I have gotten two of them and wanted to know if anyone has sold a name or if there is a way to manually send them out.

    30% commission plus a creation of a new customer is in it for Godaddy.

    In this instance, it would be worth a 3 to 4 year reg fee to them.

    It is good that they are starting to work on behalf on domain property owners.

    People are familiar with them and I think it would lead to an increase in sales in the sub 5,000 dollar range.

    I received a few on some of my domains recently so it looks like a new marketing tactic… albeit a pretty good one imo.
