Afternic Expands Further into Asian Domain Market with Dnbiz Partnership
WALTHAM, Mass – July 17, 2012 – Afternic, the world’s leading premium domain marketplace, announced today that Chinese registrar Dnbiz will join the Afternic network as a Premium Reseller. Dnbiz will now list Afternic’s Instant Transfer domain names for sale on Dnbiz.com, adding millions of high quality premium domains to its marketplace.
Afternic’s industry-leading Instant Transfer technology gives buyers of domains from the secondary market immediate access to the domains they purchase. This technology sets Afternic apart as a leader in the domain aftermarket; legacy marketplaces still impose a significant wait for domain ownership transfers. Premium resellers, like Dnbiz, cite this advantage, along with the high quality of Afternic’s inventory of premium domains, as an important reason to partner with Afternic.
“We are proud to offer our customers access to the largest portfolio of Instant Transfer domains in the world. This will enrich the buying experience on our site and improve our user experience.” said Mr. Charlie Wang, COO of Dnbiz. “Our customers are thrilled with the breadth of domains available from Afternic, and the speed in which they are moved into their accounts.”
With the addition of Dnbiz, Afternic continues to grow its presence in Asia and solidify its position as the only truly global domain aftermarket.
“We have seen consistent growth in the Chinese domain market over the past few years,” said Jason Miner, Chief Operating Officer of Afternic. “We are excited to offer our customers the opportunity to have their names presented to this growing market and for the Chinese domain buyers to have access to the high quality domains in the Afternic network.”
Afternic’s Domain Listing Service (DLS) is the world’s largest domain marketplace, offering millions of currently registered domains for sale through leading registrars worldwide. Through DLS, domains are promoted for sale to millions of active domain buyers worldwide.
