I want to share an update about new gTLD domain name auctions and listings on GoDaddy and Afternic. The company has made it easier for people to list their new gTLD domain names for sale on the company’s auction platform as well as Afternic’s marketplace.
Listed below are the updates that have been made to both platforms, as shared by GoDaddy’s Nick Fuller and the domain sales team. If you have any questions about selling or listing new gTLD domain names on GoDaddy or Afternic, you are welcome to post them here or direct them to Nick or Paul Nicks, GM of GoDaddy’s Aftermarket.
Adds over 400 additional tlds to the platform
– This includes many previously unoffered cctlds and almost all of the available new GTLDs.
– Afternic will also be rolling out an update, which will allow for almost 200 new tlds to be offered for sale on the platform
Premium fast transfer ability will follow at some point in the future.
The new names will show up in the GoDaddy purchase path, GoDaddy auctions website.
If the name was listed by Afternic, it will show up on GoDaddy, in the GoDaddy purchase path andAfternic.com.
– We are exploring ways to make the names available across the full Afternic Network and will do so in the future.
At first only non-premium renewal priced domains will be available to sell on the Aftermarket.
Support for variable pricing on renewals is coming in the future.
From our estimation this gives access to 95 percent of the domains available in the new tlds.
As new tlds are added to the G.A. phase the ability to list them for sale will be added to GoDaddy Auctions and Afternic Regularly.
To list a name for sale:
– You can add them in your Afternic account or from the GoDaddy auctions interface.
– To check for the most current list of what names we have available to list for sale check the tld list inside the “advanced search” on the GoDaddy Auctions home page.
