Ready to move out of Uniregistry?

Uniregistry has had a great run spanning almost a decade. The company was acquired by GoDaddy three years ago, as a bridge to founder Frank Schilling’s portfolio of domain names.

While GoDaddy kept Uniregistry and the Uni Market alive, the latter will shut down on April 18th, marking the end of an era for the once-thriving domain marketplace.

Last year, Uniregistry began transitioning accounts of small domain investor value to GoDaddy and its management portal. Not everyone was transitioned, however: large investor accounts with hundreds or thousands of domains remained at Uniregistry.

This will all change, most likely in May. There is no set date yet and it might happen in June, but it’s happening: Uniregistry won’t survive past 2023 as an independent domain registrar.

We contacted Uniregistry with one question related to the eventual transition: Will the move lock down domains with a 60 day lock?

The short answer: No.

The long answer:

If you have already received the email regarding the migration of your account from Uniregistry to Go Daddy, this will involve the registrar side of your account.

The domains will not be locked for 60 days, however, after the migration, you will manage your domains directly with Go Daddy and once completed, you won’t be able to access the Uniregistry account anymore.

Be on the lookout for the email documenting the migration from Uniregistry to GoDaddy and complete the move of your domains under GoDaddy management.

You can then make an educated decision if you want to keep your domains at GoDaddy, where all discounts and perks existing at Uniregistry will no longer apply.
