DomainReport.ca - Yesterday's .ca TBR release held more domains than normal, in fact a total of 4,388 domains were released. What stood out in this TBR compared to TBRs of past months was that there was a high number of top quality domains.
Unfortunately, I think most of the good names must have come as a result of someone losing their portfolio, either due to being ineligible to own .ca domains, or somehow missing the renewals.
Also, it seems that Pool had a problem with their TBR service this week and missed out on most of the releases. Anyone who had pre-registered names with them likely missed out on all or most of their domains. A representative from Pool stated in dnforum that the problem is now fixed, but what bad timing to go down on a week like this.
Here is a partial list of some of the names that were released:
... and I could go on but I think that gives a good idea of the quality that was available. Many of these domains have gone to auction and were going for hundreds to thousands of dollars.
