One of the most requested product features that I have received from the community has been to add automated ownership verification to Afternic.

Up until now, verifying ownership of a domain name in order to move outdated listings into your account involved contacting Afternic’s customer service team.

In April 2023, Afternic released a new automated ownership verification system that replaces the customer service-led method for a faster and simpler experience. 

You’ll encounter the automated ownership verification flow when attempting to add a domain name to your Afternic portfolio that is already listed in the Afternic system.
