Recent $540,000 Sale Highlights Afternic’s Advantages
Premium Domain Sale Within Three Weeks of DLS Listing
WALTHAM, MA–August 22, 2011– The recent $540,000 sale of a domain within three weeks of listing through Afternic’s Domain Listing Service (DLS) highlights the distribution and sales advantages offered to domain sellers, and has earned Afternic the exclusive listing of a new portfolio of premium domains.
The sold domain was exclusively listed on Domain Listing Service (DLS) and sold within three weeks of listing.
“My experience with Afternic DLS was incredible. I had my domain listed at a competitor’s marketplace for nearly a year and never had a viable offer,” said Craig Pollack, who represents the domain owner. “Within weeks of moving the name to Afternic it was sold for more than a half million dollars. If you are a domain owner I’d urge you to call Afternic—their sales team is professional, responsive and they deliver results.”
Sales of names listed on the DLS network have grown dramatically—up 94% year-over-year for the first half of 2011. The network now comprises more than 70 global partners, and DLS offers an unmatched roster of “Instant Transfer” enabled resellers. The exposure provided DLS-listed domains, with more than 35 million network visitors each month, has made Afternic the world’s largest and fastest-growing domain marketplace.
“We recognize that the only way to significantly and sustainably expand the market for premium domain names is to move beyond the traditional sales approach of legacy domain marketplaces, and instead place premium domain inventory in front of business buyers by syndicating all available inventory to the registrars that capture the majority of domain buyers,” said Jason Miner, General Manager at Afternic and Senior Vice President at NameMedia. “With the distribution network we have now built at DLS, Afternic stands alone at giving domain sellers the broadest exposure for their domains, and the recent six-figure domain sale within weeks of listing on Afternic is just one example of that.”
Said Bill Sweetman of YummyNames: “Afternic’s Domain Listing Service has earned our business by generating a ton of offers and very high sales volume. With such broad distribution and an aggressive, professional sales force they have produced exceptional results for us.”
The growing success of Afternic DLS is attracting a roster of premium domain listings. Below is a sampling of inventory newly available for purchase exclusively at Afternic:
In addition to individual domain name exclusives, there are themed domain collections available, including a collection of dog breeds such as: retrievers.com, beagles.com, dalmation.com and others. For an established business seeking keyword-rich domains, the purchase of such a list can have significant positive impact on search optimization efforts.
