    The "make offer" is more useful on domains with higher asking prices IMO. In those cases the negotiation does matter.

    I have a lot of domains on Afternic as BIN with make offer. 50% range is normally my min offer, and 10%-20% discount on floor price.

    It is hardly ever that a domain receives an offer, or sells between the floor price and BIN. If the domain is priced in a normal end user range like $500 - $5,000 the majority of interested buyers just pull the trigger from my experience, if the domain is easy to buy.

    Thank you all for the useful feedback in this early stage, keep it coming. I will decide when all is stable. There will be a new Dan.com soon as well, and I think I'll give them a try first.

    Glad to see these are now available! Going to put some names priced at $850 and $2500 on there and see how they do.

    I guess for me DAN still have one additional huge advantage, domain financing/leasing.

    You might be right. I am not even trying ns5. until they provide firm data that it would improve sales (I might do my own A/B test if I have time. With thousands of domains I could get a good feel which one works better).

    For now, though, not trying to fix something that ain't broken.

    What I really would like GD to implement is providing traffic stats or ability to add GA.

    I switched a bunch of domains to the new landers over 14 hours back. None of them seem to resolve at least on my end.

    Anyone else facing such issue? All domains are actively listed at Afternic with a BIN.

    In those cases I like to run a propagation check, you can easily do this by searching for
    dns propagation check
    in your favorite search engine.
    • Enter one of your domains into the check form,
    • select the NS option to run a nameserver check
    • Look at the results from several test servers worldwide: If all (or nearly all) of them show the new nameservers (in that case ns5 and ns6.afternic.com), the change seems to have propagated well.
    In addition, you can also try setting your computer's DNS servers to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 (Google's nameservers) or 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 (CloudFlare's nameservers) and try accessing one of your domains in your browser.
    Hope this helps.

    If you are accessing from an Indian IP address, it may not work! Try visiting from other countries IP address!

    or

    I don't see any problem redirecting to godaddy.com/forsale/yourdomain.com

    What if an indian buyer would like to buy it? They just see an error page. NS5 and NS6 DNS should be resolved.

    Hi @DNGear and others,

    What error page do you get exactly?

    If you see an error page on a Godaddy.com URL, DNS resolving worked pretty well, but the Godaddy backend is sending you to a wrong URL, or some other thing is messed up. Or the backend is sending you to local geo-servers that are not correctly configured for your domain. At least, that is what I think is happening here, reading some of the postings and looking at the screenshots in this thread.

    So, I'd invite all testers to be more precise about what they're experiencing:

    1. DNS errors

    Browser says that the site is down, or that there is no Internet connection, etc.​
    -or-

    2. Errors after you have arrived on a Godaddy URL

    It could be that Godaddy nameservers cannot be reached in certain countries. Or that the Godaddy website is blocked on a higher level. All this information is interesting to know as well, and I am a bit surprised that Godaddy did not find these errors in an earlier stage. Blocking can happen on a lot of different levels (IP based, ASN based, URL based, etc.)​

    The browser throws a message that THE SITE CANNOT BE REACHED.

    The issue is not just mine alone. I have checked with many other indian investors. All of our domains are being accessed from other countries perfectly fine, except India. Hence not sure what's going on here.

    This same error message is coming up even after 48 hours of NS propagation.

    Would appreciate if anybody can throw some light here.

    Based on your screenshot, it's a DNS issue. You either cannot reach ns5/ns6, or you can reach ns5/ns6 but those nameservers provide no A record for the website (or simply just wrong info).

    Based on the screenshot posted by @olcayto - there was some DNS resolving, but there were other problems further on, on the Godaddy website. This is another issue.

    Anyway, lots of problems, it seems.

    I switched some from my namecheap app yesterday. They are resolving. No more CamelCase no more google analytics
    Wait and see, hope for some success stories.
    I see merit—xyz domain lander as shown above

    This is related to the IPv4 address that is received/receiving a bad risk score. For example Why is Akamai blocking me? Akamai client lookup tool

    You can try to Flush and Reset the DNS Cache

    Windows
    Run Command Prompt / cmd (Run as Administrator)
    Type:

    ipconfig /flushdns

    then press “Enter“ key

    ---

    Mac
    For Sierra and later
    Run terminal and type in (or copy / paste):

    sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder;sudo killall mDNSResponderHelper;sudo dscacheutil -flushcache

    For El Capitan & OS X 12 (Sierra)
    Run terminal and type in (or copy / paste):

    sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder

    ---

    Linux

    type following command in a terminal:

    sudo service nscd restart

    ------

    + Restart your modem / router (turn off power for +/- 60 sec / cable out)

    Hi Lox,

    Flushing your DNS cache will not solve IP address reputation scores (if that is indeed the problem here, I'm not sure it is).

    This is in case if some ppl have an issue w dns cache .

    Mostly, related to the RIS routing information not visible as exact match. But that's for backend to fix , not the user end.

    You can check on RIPE stats about the IP visibility

    No, this is not cache/browser/IP flushing/DNS issues, rather the problem is from Afternic/Godaddy side...

    I changed nameserver, approx. 36 hours before, I can't see the landing page from any Indian IP address....... I am using dynamic IP address.
    So, within 36 hours, 5/6 times the IP address is changed, same problem......... however, I am able to see the landing page from other countries' IP address.

    Hello namepros friends,
    I want to report about my experience with the new afternic BIN landers. 24 hours ago I have changed the nameservers of 103 domains to the new Afternic ns5 and ns6 nameservers. All domains are listed in my Afternic account with BIN prices. However from the 103 domains only 76 domains are resolving with the new BIN lander like this:
    upload_2021-4-30_20-3-11.png

    For the remaining 27 domains you get this one:
    upload_2021-4-30_20-4-32.png

    Yesterday I tried to figure out where the catch is but I was not able to find any clear indicator for it.

    Today I hit the BIN button on the lander and I got this:
    upload_2021-4-30_20-12-5.png

    It says: AUCTIONS DOMAIN PURCHASE

    This was interesting for me because I realized that it must somehow be related to Godaddy Domain Auctions. Therefor I checked all 103 domains if they are listed in the Godaddy domain auction platform - and surprise surprise:
    The 27 domains that don't resolve with the BIN lander:
    - 25 are not listed in the auction platform
    - 2 are listed but are not mine
    The 76 domains that are resolving with the BIN lander:
    73 are listed in the auction platform
    3 I can't find.

    Conclusion:
    It seems that the domain must be listed in the Godaddy auctions platform if you want that the BIN lander resolves.

    It would be nice if someone could check their domains and give some feedback!

    I wish you all the best!
    Darko

    DNS propagation can take up to 48 hours. You can check the status - for example here / or use any of dns propagation checker tools.

    Thanks for the valuable feedback @1Darko

    So these fresh new domain landers build on a system that no one can fathom anymore. It doesn't seem like the entire chain has been redesigned, just the outer marketing shell...

    Thanks for confirming this. Looks like it is a problem from Afternic/Godaddy end.
