Domain name marketplace Afternic announced an enhanced partnership with Godaddy that will make available Afternic's "Request Price" domain names to Godaddy customers - presumably within the registrar's auction environment.
Godaddy, which is currently one of more than 90 other Afternic resellers, already displays Afternic's domains with set "Buy Now" prices. The new arrangement will add additional inventory and likely benefit both buyers and sellers. Afternic's DLS (Domain Listing Service) is considered by many to be one of the premier domain name aftermarkets.
“Go Daddy is always looking for more ways to provide the best possible experience for our customers and the addition of Afternic’s ‘Request Price’ domains will do just that,” said Paul Nicks, Director of Product Development for the Domain Aftermarket at Go Daddy. “By putting more quality domain names in customer search results, it gives them the option to pay a little more for the domain name they want and gives a domain name seller a quick and fair transaction … it’s a win-win for everyone.”
