“The use of premium domain names to drive traffic and rank well through SEO is becoming more mainstream and is being used by small and big businesses alike.” said Bill Mushkin, CEO and Founder of Name.com. “Joining Afternic’s DLS allows us to connect more sellers and potential buyers through the industry’s largest reseller network, giving sellers the best chance to sell their domain and buyers the best chance to find the perfect domain for their project or business.”

Afternic’s DLS offers an unmatched platform of premium domains available for sale to tens of millions of retail domain buyers through its network of more than 40 partners.

“We are excited to be including new partners such as Name.com in DLS. Through these partnerships we are realizing the vision of a unified aftermarket–bringing together domain buyers and sellers in a more efficient marketplace,” said Jason Miner, senior vice president of sales and business development of Afternic. “With a monthly reach of more than 35 million prospective domain buyers seeking quality domains, we expect that domain sellers will enjoy unprecedented sales success. The Domain Listing Service is functioning much as the Multiple Listing Service has for real estate transactions—becoming a hub of activity that meets the needs of both buyers and sellers.”

Afternic’s successful DLS sales model also enables domain owners to use Afternic’s parking service, which is powered by SmartName Technology, to have a “This Domain for Sale” link placed on parked pages. Leads from this link are sent directly to an experienced sales team for immediate follow-up.
