gTLDs at Park.io

gTLDs in the mix at Park.io auctions

Looks like Park.io is moving beyond just ccTLD auctions. Seeing quite a few gTLDs in the mix lately. Could be they’ve always been there, and I didn’t notice, but I don’t see a “.com” or “.net” tab at the top of the page. You have to manually enter “https://park.io/domains/index/com” or “https://park.io/domains/index/net” to view upcoming drops. This leads me to believe that this is something newish that they’re gradually introducing (testing the waters?).

For now there seems to be a rather limited pool of .com drops to choose from. Could be they’re only letting you backorder stuff they know they’ve got a decent chance of grabbing. Anyway. Just a random observation. It’d be interesting if they started allowing general backorders. If you could backorder anything you want, then DropCatch & co might have some competition on their hands.
