Today is the last day domains listed on DomainNameSales.com will show up for searches on GoDaddy.
It turns out it’s also the last day for DomainNameSales.com listings on the site. [Update: while March 31 was supposed to be the last day for DNS syndication on GoDaddy, GoDaddy has kept the listings up while it finishes a transition for Afternic listings in the registration path.]
That means that after today, the only way for the typical domain owner to get domain names in the registration path at GoDaddy is to list them on Afternic or directly through GoDaddy.
Until now customers searching on GoDaddy.com could fill out a lead form if they were interested in a domain that was on DomainNameSales.com. DNS charged a 20% commission to clients if it resulted in a sale. The average sales price for a DNS domain sold through GoDaddy was over $15,000.
