Conflicts Between Uniregistry and Afternic

Earlier this month, I wrote about how domain names added to Uniregistry were being listed for sale via Afternic. This served as a bit of a warning to people who may have priced a name for a prospective buyer at Uniregistry and now that price could possibly be listed as a BIN price at Afternic. It could be problematic for someone who doesn’t regularly update prices at Uniregistry.

Although I do not price my names at Uniregistry, I have run into an issue where domain names I own and add to my Uniregistry parking account then conflict when I try to add them to Afternic. I will share an example with you.

In September, I bought at In addition to listing the domain name for sale at DAN, I also added it to my Uniregistry account in the event I opt to park it with PPC on Uniregistry instead of simply listing it for sale. I did not list it for sale at Afternic.

After turning down an offer via DAN, I decided to list the domain name in my Afternic account so it becomes visible across the GoDaddy network. Rejected – “Already listed at Afternic” is the message I see. A search on the Afternic home page shows the domain name is available with a minimum offer of $10,000:

Interestingly, Finlead mentioned the $10,000 minimum offer on Afternic for Uniregistry-listed domain names in a tweet this morning:

As a customer of Uniregistry, Afternic, and GoDaddy, I find this frustrating. I can’t simply list for sale via Afternic because I had added it first to my Uniregistry parking account. The fix is relatively simple for me – I can simply email my Afternic account representative and ask him to remove the domain name from Afternic so I can re-add it. The other fix is to add names to my Afternic account before adding to Uniregistry so I can better manage sales listings and prices.

I would imagine GoDaddy is working on integrating all of its brands to make it easier for customers to manage their listings in one place. In the meantime, the integrations are causing conflicts.
