    domaininvesting:

    Previously, the only BIN landing page option for investors was an Afternic-branded landing page with a less prominent GoDaddy logo. Obviously, the GoDaddy branding is much stronger than Afternic, and having the GoDaddy logo as the anchor should provide a lift. In fact, GoDaddy has been testing its branded landing pages, and I presume the general availability means there was a lift in results.

    Joe also shared how investors will be able to implement the GoDaddy BIN landing page. Importantly, domain names must be listed for sale via Afternic / GoDaddy, and they must also have a buy it now purchase price listed.

    For investors with domain names that meet these two requirements, Joe said they can change the nameservers

    Thank you for posting this @Lox

    I changed the nameservers on one of my domains to see if the new BIN pages were up yet and, lo and behold, they were!

    The landers are up, however your domain has to be fast transfer enabled otherwise BIN price won't appear. There are a handful of fast transfer extensions that are approved on Afternic, so not all domains will get the BIN box on ns5&6.

    All my .com domains with a BIN show there just right with or without fast transfer. The issue is with certain extensions as well as with the regisry-premium .co domains.

    You don't need to bother with nameservers, you can just forward to https://www.godaddy.com/forsale/mydomain.com as well as test your domains with that URL.

    Having Uniregistry(!) broker names and photos shown for fixed priced domains, which are not supposed to be negotiable, is illogical. Imo... Yeah it must be inspired by DAN landers, but DAN is referring to their staff members as "Domain Experts", not brokers. Also, there is no contact support form, not all buyers are willing to call or prefer phone calls. The last but not the least, the system is not yet multiligual it seems, and httpS traffic is not served/forwarded.
    So: a good news, better late than never, but still beta release.

    I agree with the broker thing. It looks a bit odd for BIN listings. But apart from that the landers look good, and I think it is good they forward to godaddy.com to create further trust.

    Don't like it that when you place the domain in your cart it is called "Auctions Domain Purchase". What auctions? Its a BIN, such wording may confuse and scare away the buyer.

    Tagging @Joe Styler in case wishes to comment on any of points raised above by people.

    I am delighted that we now have BIN button landers that are GoDaddy branded.

    Thanks. It is not my project so I wont take the thanks. I am working on Auctions and we have a lot of things planned this year. Like we will support premium .co domains for sale as someone mentioned above we do not now.
    The broker picture is in line with the branding the company started a few years ago by putting real customers and employees on the site. I think it helps people to know there is someone real on the other side, and there is a phone number where they are going to be able to call and talk with a broker if they have questions right under where it says Buy Now.
    I'd stick to using the Nameservers as it is designed because if the company decides to change the URL the form goes to in the future the Nameservers will continue to work even if the URL changes.
    I don't think auctions domain purchase will scare anyone away and depending on how you list the domain on Afternic and how it is listed on GoDaddy it may or may not be an auction listing. Afternic feeds your names to around 100 partners one of which is GoDaddy Auctions.

    All my domains are now "Premium domain" when in the cart. Thanks for the improvement, GoDaddy.
