Afternic is an auction house, listing service, and parking service all wrapped up into one. AfternicDLS Expanded Promotion (their extended selling service that includes a sales representative and additional listing with Afternic partners) currently costs $20 for an annual membership, plus 20% of each sale.
The company claims on their homepage to list over 3 million ‘premium’ domain names and to have sold 3 times as many domain names as their nearest competitor – we have not verified this.
Afternic focuses on end user sales as opposed to the domainer-to-domainer sales that are most frequent on other auction and listing sites. According to Afternic, their highest recorded sale so far is greenhouse.com, which sold for $500,000 in July 2007.
Afternic is a massive player in the domain industry with lots of sales to show for it.
