IREIT Selects Afternic for Domain Name Brokerage Services


I wrote an article over a year ago entitled “Dear IREIT, Is Anybody Home? Does Anyone Work There Any More?” and it still receives traffic and the occasional comment. While Internet REIT still owns some solid domain names, apparently, it takes some time to hear back from the company on offers and deals.

This slow response time may be a thing of the past. According to a press release this morning, Internet REIT has selected Afternic as the exclusive broker for over 1,000 domain names. Buyers dealing with Afternic should see much quicker response times, assuming Afternic has pricing for the domain names the company represents.

Hopefully this move will help close more deals. If you are interested in buying domain names owned by IREIT, contact Afternic’s Patrick Calvoni at 781-839-2856.

“With the quality of the iREIT names and the breadth of our distribution network, we are confident that Afternic’s platform can deliver outstanding results for iREIT,” said Jason Miner, Senior Vice President of NameMedia and General Manager of Afternic. “More and more domain sellers are recognizing that our partner network aggregates potential buyer demand better than any other platform.”

AfternicDLS is the world’s largest domain distribution network, with more than 70 partners, including six of the top ten global registrars. Those partners display the inventory of names listed for sale through Afternic directly on their site, facilitating the awareness and sale of names in the domain aftermarket. Many of the partners have adopted Afternic’s Instant Transfer(TM) technology, allowing domain buyers the opportunity to purchase a premium domain name as easily as registering a new name on the partner’s site.
