Logan Flatt noticed what appears to be a new GoDaddy / Afternic inquiry landing page, which he shared on Twitter today:

When I visited the domain name and a few others I know are for sale and parked on Afternic nameservers, I saw the standard landing pages that GoDaddy has been using for quite some time.
The landing page that Logan shared shares the new look of GoDaddy’s search pages. The teal green background and the cartoon graphic are very similar to the page a person would encounter when searching for a domain name on GoDaddy’s website. You will notice the prominent GoDaddy logo at the top and a small “Powered by Afternic” at the bottom of the landing page.
What has not changed much is the call to actions on the landing page. GoDaddy continued to encourage visitors to call a domain broker or provide their contact information so a broker can get in touch.
I will reach out to GoDaddy to see if this is a test or if these landing pages are rolling out across the board.
