The people over at .Club are looking to bring .com and other extensions into their Names.Club marketplace.
Jeff Sass said, “We’re very excited to make a much wider range of brandable and keyword domains available with 60-month Easy Payments, as we are confident paying monthly is an attractive way for businesses, startups, and entrepreneurs to build a brand on a great premium domain.”
I think it’s kind of smart, open the door to other extensions and find more ways to create revenue.

Names.club Opens its Marketplace
to .Com and All Top-Level Domains
Creates Game Changing Opportunity for All Domain Investors
FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA (January 24, 2019) – .CLUB Domains announced today that at NamesCon Global 2019 in Las Vegas the Names.club marketplace will begin allowing premium names with any extension, including .COM names, to be listed for sale. Domains offered at Names.club must be priced at $5,000 or more and must have standard renewal fees. All names accepted for listing at Names.club will be offered with 60-month Easy Payments (after a 15% down payment) with no interest and the ability to cancel any time, just like a magazine subscription. In addition, domains listed for sale on Names.club will also be listed for sale at a growing number of registrars such as Namecheap, who offer Easy Payments Powered by Names.club.
Names.club, launched at Namescon last year, features .CLUB names as well as names from other registries including GMO (.Shop), MMX (.Fit, .Wedding, .Miami and more), and Radix (.Online, .Tech, .Space and more). Now individual domain owners and domain portfolio owners can also list their names for aftermarket sale at Names.club. All premium names offered at Names.club will be available with 60-month Easy Payments (after down payment), making high value, brandable, and keyword domains more affordable for small businesses and entrepreneurs.
“Since its inception, Names.club has demonstrated that monthly payments are an attractive, affordable way for startups and entrepreneurs to build a great brand with a high value premium domain,” stated .CLUB CEO Colin Campbell. “Now we’re applying this philosophy to all domain extensions and all sellers of domains, from registries to individual domain investors,” Campbell continued.
The network of more than 100 domain brokers and affiliates with Names.club accounts will now be able to earn commission on all names sold by Names.club, including .COM names and all listed aftermarket names. The Easy Payment plan at Names.club minimizes the upfront expense for the buyer and maximizes their flexibility and opportunity to use a great, brandable domain. After a 15% deposit the remaining 85% is paid in 60 monthly installments, with no interest and no long-term obligation. For example, a name priced at $5,000 would be $750 down and $70.83 per month for 60-months.

The press release and website don’t explain the sellers experience. Brokers make 15%, which is the the down payment, and a purchase via a broker give “buyer” an 10% discount. What does the seller get?
Well most of the best GTLD’s have premium renewals, so most of those are out. .COM RULES ALL
What is the house %?
Desperate is being an old time domainer who is no longer relevant, posting his bullcrap on blogs each day.

ANY ONE: DO YOU HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR IP HOSTING ADDRESS ON DOMAIN NAMES. I AM RUNNING MY WEBSITE, I DONT WANT TO CHNAGE THE HOST/IP ADDRESS UNTIL I SELL THE NAME.
NAEEM AHMED RANA says
IS IT TRUE THAT OWNER OF THE NAME WILL STILL OWN THE NAME. HE/SHE IS JUST SELLING/LEASING THE NAME ON MONTHLY PAYMENTS? AFTER THEY (BUYER) STOP PAYING, THE CONTRACT IS CANCELED?
NAEEM AHMED RANA says
I OPENED THE ACCOUNT, BUT I CAN LIST THE NAMES FOR SALE. HOW DO I DO THAT?
Wow, I just intuitively typed in NamesClub.com after reading the post and it is a parked page.
I wonder how much traffic Names.Club loses to the .com version? (I know I just mistakenly typed it on my browser).
Regardless, it sounds like a smart move by Names.Cluband an interesting additional third party marketplace for domainers!
