Company offers free membership through the end of April.
AfternicDLS is offering free sellers memberships — but the offer ends April 30.
Afternic usually charges $19.95 to become a seller on its platform, and $1.00 for a buyer-only membership. Its chief competitor Sedo doesn’t charge for accounts.
However, given Afternic’s historic focus on sales instead of domain parking, the fee makes sense. The seller fee limits the amount of users who merely flood the system with low value domains. The buyer fee validates the identity of buyers.
To take advantage of the deal, you can email PremiumPromotion (at) Afternic.com or call the company’s service center at 1-866-830-6451 (US), +1 339-222-5139 (Worldwide).
I highly recommend people list their domains for sale on both Afternic and Sedo, as they each have different reach. Afternic, through its parent NameMedia and the BuyDomains site, focuses on end users. Sedo leans more toward the domain investor market, although it also has a number of end user clients.
