Afternic adds another registrar in its fastest growing market, China.
Domain name sales platform Afternic announced today that Xinnet has joined its fast transfer distribution network for selling domain names.
Xinnet is China’s second largest domain name registrar behind HiChina. HiChina joined Afternic’s network in 2012. Based on sales data I monitor, I believe HiChina quickly became one of Afternic’s larger distribution partners. China is Afternic’s fastest growing market.
As far as .com registrations are concerned, Xinnet is only slightly smaller than HiChina. As of the end of September, Xinnet had 1.17 million .com registrations while HiChina had 1.44 million.
Afternic now counts 18 of the top 20 domain name registrars in its distribution market. GoDaddy acquired Afternic last September.
