Fixed price Afternic listings to be featured on Go Daddy registration path.
Customers who sell domain names through Afternic are about to get a lot more exposure.
Afternic has struck a deal with Go Daddy to start showing its fixed price listings in the Go Daddy registration path. The listings will show up whenever someone searches for the exact domain name that is offered for sale.
The integration, which will go live later tonight or on Monday, will provide added exposure to domains sold through Afternic’s Expanded or Premium level that have a fixed price.
Go Daddy customers who wish to purchase the domains will be sent to GoDaddy Auctions to complete the purchase. The deal does not provide for instant transfer; domains sold will go through Afternic’s escrow process.
The exposure is similar to domains already listed with GoDaddy auctions, but domain owners will be able to just list on Afternic and manage all of their domains from one interface rather than listing through two systems and still get the exposure.
Afternic’s minimum commission is 15%. Customers who park their domain names with Afternic receive a 5% rebate on the commission.
