    Afternic parking service has lot of problems last time with "an error occured" which apear on old and domain without any reason. Support says that they have global problem with that but it takes more than month and nothing changes. I want know how much people from this forum have same problem ? Maybe we should show how big is this problem.

    I have the same problem too. I moved 3 domains into my Afternic account a few days ago and changed the nameservers to the NS1 & 2 Afternic servers. All that happened was that the 3 domains resolved to a blank page with the helpful (not) message "An error has occured". I have now moved these 3 domains back onto the standard GD servers. At least the GD page resolves to something...

    I also checked all my other Afternic listed domains, which previously had resolved to parking pages. After selecting images and keywords, they looked relatively attractive to land on. Checking today, I find all my Afternic parking pages have been knocked out, to be replaced with a dark grey page with a few seemingly unrelated links, with a neon green strip at the top saying For Sale on Afternic.

    I never authorised these utterly awful, dismal, landing pages. What happened to my Afternic (Smartname) parking pages? What the bleep is going on with Afternic?!

    It's been long I visited Afternic, haven't made any sell there or even received any inquiry. The platform isn't just working for me for now.

    Yeah, still not fixed. Thought I would park some newly registered names there, checked to see how they resolved, and all I get is a blank page with "an error occurred".

    I did a search on NPs and here I am.

    This is awful. So will they ever resolve? It's ridicolous.

    Moving on...

    And they have same error for domains which they banned (that said support) so idk how they recognise them or maybe its random. So You can get cash or ban aswell. And this support is awsome waiting time 2-5 days than they tell You that they need to contact parking provider or anyone else it tooks 2-4 days again and than You will find out that maybe they will fix Your domain manually or not so i'm really disapointed about this parking becouse it was really good before this error.

    I don't have time for that. I expect a company of that scale to provide a platform that works.

    To have a flaw such as this is just unbelievable imho.

    I changed my nameservers to Undeveloped, and they all resolve like they should within minutes.

    Afternic "An error Occured"

    Possible reasons
    1) Your domain is not properly added in to afternic system. But showing domain in your afternicaccount. ( They have some bug). You have to contact support and add by support manually.

    2) If already AD displayed domain having issues, then the domain is removed from parking. So contact them to confirm.

    Why am i still parking with Afternic?
    Some domains extremely performing well at afternic despite of their poor stats
