April’s top domain name stories

GoDaddy auctions, WooCommerce and Uzi Nissan made news last month.

The words "Top 5" written on a purple background
These were the most popular stories on Domain Name Wire last month, ranked by number of views.

1. West Virginia airport tries to reverse hijack a domain name – Air travel can make the news for hijackings, but this airport is in focus for a different kind of hijacking.

2. GoDaddy to nix customer listings on GoDaddy Auctions – GoDaddy will no longer allow customers to start auctions on its auction platform. I didn’t know people still did this, but a couple of people reached out after the news to say they did — and one said it’s his entire business model.

3. Changing domains is hard. Just ask WordPress – If one of the most influential web companies can have a hard time, imagine what smaller businesses are up against.

4. Judge orders Nissan.com transferred back to estate of Uzi Nissan – It’s one of the most famed domain names on the internet. And the heirs of Uzi Nissan are getting it back after it was stolen.

5. Man gets $486k judgment against Rob Monster and Epik Inc over stolen domain – The man’s stolen domain ended up being owned by Epik, and Epik passed it on to an unsuspecting domain investor.
