This afternoon Afternic’s Domain Listing Service (DLS) issued its report for the 1st half of 2011 and announced a 94% jump in year-over-year sales volume for the first half of 2011, marking the strongest growth in its history.
Afternic DLS service works with registrars to allow customer to buy owned domain names through “Instant Transfer Enabled” partners including: eNom.com, Network Solutions.com, Moniker.com Register.com, Name.com, and BulkRegister.com
Tucows.com will be coming on board in the fall.
“Instant Domain Transfer” makes the aftermarket domain purchase akin to that of registering a new domain as buyers gain immediate control of the purchased name, allowing them to launch their online venture without delays.
“We are delighted to offer domain investors a superior choice for domain sales and parking. This is an exciting time for Afternic. As we build momentum toward a unified aftermarket we believe that we will see even stronger growth in the future, benefitting both domain sellers and domain buyers,” said Jason Miner, Senior Vice President at NameMedia and General Manager of Afternic.
