Estibot Gives Praise to BuyDomains/Afternic

Estibot just posted an article here about their positive buying experience on BuyDomains. When the company was looking for two domains for new projects, they visited several domain aftermarket sites, and were very pleased with the search and purchase experience on BuyDomains, which exceeded their expectations.

Estibot appreciated that there was a “Buy it Now” option for the two names on BuyDomains, but the two domains were a bit over their agreed-upon budget. They reached out to BuyDomains to negotiate the price on a Sunday, heard back within 30 minutes, and finalized the transaction the same day.

Estibot also expected the transaction to take several weeks, so were pleasantly surprised when they received access to both domains within 3 days, along with a confirmation from the BuyDomains account rep that they were able to access the domains.

Estibot says: “Throughout the entire process the BuyDomains/Afternic team has been EXTREMELY professional, fast and accommodating. Their professional conduct should serve as an example to all domain industry service providers.”

Largest Russian Registrar Joins Afternic as Reseller

RU-CENTER, Russia’s first and largest domain registrar and hosting company, has joined Afternic’s Premium Reseller Network. Through the partnership RU-CENTER will add Afternic’s premium domains to search results on its own website, giving Afternic DLS members an even larger audience to sell domains to.

RU-CENTER will also utilize Afternic’s Instant Transfer technology on these listings, giving buyers instant access to their purchased premium domains – a significant improvement over the lengthy escrow process used by legacy domain marketplaces.

Afternic’s integration with RU-CENTER will be completed by the end of March 2012, when premium listings will start appearing on nic.ru. RU-CENTER has been the gateway for the Russian public to the .ru aftermarket and auction experience. This partnership with Afternic will take RU-CENTER to the next level, introducing their customers to more premium domain names in general TLDs (.com/.org/.net /.biz / .info), and turning it into a truly global marketplace.
