    Just to give you some examples: register.it, amen, ipage, dotster, domain.com(the last two of them didnt used them for the last year or so, but probably nothing changed in a year).
     
    The views expressed on this page by users and staff are their own, not those of NamePros.

    I didn't compared them one by one, but you are right, most of them are the same one's, except godaddy. So an easy fix will be a standard listing through afternic,(your domains will be listed at godaddy as well) and list them at sedo, through MLS and you will cover 99% of the registrars(sedo has also 650 registrars , most of the main one's the same one's from afternic list.

    I just confirmed with Afternic that the list is up to date and these are participating registrars.

    [update: Boker was right here -- some participating registrars only show domains in the network, they can't add domains from their registrar]

    Yes, participating registrars in promoting your names, as in if you list your domain in afternic FT network and somebody will do a search through register.it, they will show your domain as available , with the premium price. But if you register your domain through register.it, you can't list it in the afternic FT network.

    More controversy with Epik? Seems like it never ends. You know that friend who always has an issue with EVERYONE, yeah, it's getting to be like that. When the problem is everyone else, maybe time to look inward.

    How can you say such a thing lol

    https://www.afternic.com/domain-reseller-network

    Domain names exposed through the Premium Network are required to be enabled for fast-transfer. Domain names get exposure through the Standard Network resellers, plus promotion on 8 of the top 10 domain registrars in the world. This amounts to over 75 million monthly search queries from the largest domain reseller network in the world.

    Domain.com
    Netsol
    Name.com
    Register.com
    Namecheap
    Tucows
    enom
    All are fast transfer

    +
    Main domainer registrars
    Namesilo
    Dynadot
    Sav
    All are fast transfer.

    Sure dude domaining is not a numbers game lets just lose 35% and apply band aids.

    Just for the record, why would I do that?

    I have used domain.com for a few years( had around 400 domains with them at one point) and they were never in the FT network, but I'm not using them for the last couple of years, so if they changed that, good for them. Namecheap is in the network in the last year or so, so recent change and I never knew that network solutions are part of the FT network, if somebody else can confirm this, will be great( I wonder how can they do fast transfers, when it takes ages for them to do a regular transfer).

    So, are you saying that if you own a domain with: tucows, hichina, enom, google, 1&1, pdr, gmo you can list your domain through afternic FT network? It's easy to believe marketing lines from 10 years ago.

    It was a plan, only a plan.
    Also you might know that end users love paypal.
    All that heat and press was supposed to bring promotion but in the end, epik sounds like a dangerous place for end users. What prevailed is the bad press, not the epik is the digital hero narrative.
    I dont want to build a website on epik only to have my domain or hosting account disapear because the government ordered so.

    Who told you that end users love paypal? How many end users sales have you had through paypal? How many buyers requested to pay by paypal? https://www.trustpilot.com/review/www.paypal.com With one star out of five on trustpilot, sometimes sounds like we are not watching the same movie.

    Dude. End users as people using for 35$ .com and hosting accounts etc...
    Same people who buy shoes online.
    They love paypal.

    Truth is, domainers are not going bring end users to epik because domainers are going to leave.
    End users wont be tasting epik's tools.
    Bad press is around, deterrent.

    I'd take the new regs business through private domaining cheap .coms.

    In light of this and your employment, I find it a bit odd that GoDaddy is your preferred registrar:

    Just check the reviews on trustpilot, they are just end users, buying everything from shoes to cleaners, to everything and 85% of them are saying that paypal is poor or bad, so for you that means that they love it. Have you tried to sell domains to end users, getting payed through paypal? I've done an experiment for a year, for half of my portofolio and trust me, they don't love paypal. They will choose to pay directly into your bank account, than to pay through paypal.

    I've mentioned this a few times in the past. GoDaddy, Escrow.com, Paypal all over the site. Referred to as Trusted Service Providers. Had plenty of time to switch all that out to Epik, Epik "Escrow" etc. The old actions speak louder than words.

    A little basketball reference. James Harden of the Rockets used to wear Nike gear all the time then signed a 4 year, $171 million contract with Adidas. People were noticing he kept wearing Nike shoes after that contract was signed and Adidas handled that with the swiftness. They pay you that much money, you wear Adidas.

    -----------
    "Unused yachts, broken hookers," and a sudden trend for changes in citizenship “just in case”, as a tool to avoid unwanted extradition processes that might now be right down the road."

    ?

    "The difficulty here is that even with past city takeovers, buildings set on fire, assassinations, brutal attacks, mass service deplatforming, hospitals barricaded, stay-at-home orders to quash rebellions, tactical insertions of COVID testing to raise numbers for control, and atrocities too many to list - people do not want to hear the truth."

    I mentioned conspiracy stuff in my prior post. At least Hunter Biden caught a break this time.

    I like both Epik and Godaddy and although I have a very small portfolio of mostly hand registered domains and haven't done any sales for a long time now, but I like the seamless process that now exists between Afternic and Godaddy and I am somewhat sad that the same is not going to exist for Epik anymore.

    But I believe that this has nothing to do with all the Epik's rants and rebellious behaviors of the past which some people here might have found to be as inappropriate marketing tactics for their brand and services. In my opinion this has to do more with Epik claiming to be the "Swiss Bank for Domains" which was proudly being displayed on their website till not too long ago. But now that the political landscape is changing perhaps the financial models that were being promoted by Epik which in a way was actually domainer friendly as it would allow those who sold a domain to keep the proceeds inhouse can no longer be acceptable to companies such as Paypal and Godaddy which are not comfortable to be used in such ways and in a way you can't blame them considering that millions of dollars are changing hands through domain sales every month.

    At this time my recommendation to Epik is to change their financial models so that they can be in good standing with all the laws and rules that their business associates such as Paypal and Godaddy expect them to abide with and as such I expect Epik to be given a chance for redemption before it is permanently cut of by Godaddy and Paypal.

    IMO

    What is this? I couldn't even read through it all.

    In simple terms, What was the stated reason for termination from Afternic?

    Fast Transfer is a good thing. Last month I had a sale that happened through Afternic FT with a domain that was at Epik. It was super quick and I am sure the buyer was happy because I was since I didnt have to deal with transfers and such. Looking where the buyer bought the name or where he is from, there is no way he searched Godaddy or Afternic for the name. It was on his preferred registrar. Anyways, FT is good and I wish all registrars had it.

    FT is a very good feature for added exposure. While most of my sales are via Afternic/GoDaddy directly, there is still a substantial amount of FT sales via other registrars.

    Many of these FT sales are people that would have not been likely to even find the domain otherwise.
    I just sold one today for low 5 figures via Afternic FT.

    I have a lot of domains at Epik and have been happy with everything except for the backwards policy that if you sell an external domain in the Epik marketplace the seller has to pay for the transfer, that should be more like nameliquidate where the buyer pays.

    Due to the flexibility of their payment plans I was able to cashflow and was creating a plan based just on those options. I have also been pleased with the fast transfer from Afternic and was pretty miffed with this news of separation.

    But I am extremely upset at the crap I just read in that rant. I am a professional nurse, and although I now work as a nurse educator, I have taken care of sick and dying clients on vents etc. I am well connected with nurses taking care of patients with Covid-19. I have a graduate level education including courses related to public health & epidemiology. Covid-19 is no conspiracy and no joke, when I read that someone is tying there business troubles into a conspiracy theory that suggest best practices to break the chain of transmission of a virus on track to kill over 300,000 people on the USA is a plan to keep people from rioting, all I can say is, Why the hell would I do business with that company?

    I try to stay out of personal controversies and deal with my own plans and goals, but these conspiracy theories are killing a lot of people and if you want to believe them go a head, but don’t tell me that is why Godaddy is cutting you off.
