    Quick question.

    Is Namefind part of Godaddy or Afternic or both? Their 1-877 number sounds just like the automated recording for Godaddy.

    I have my reasons for asking. Thanks in advance.

    So that means if a domain is being sold by Namefind then it is Godaddy making the profit? and Afternic is part of godaddy too right?

    GoDaddy is the company that provides registrar services and a whole host of other services for small businesses. They also have the auction platform.

    Afternic is an aftermarket site that was purchased by GoDaddy https://techcrunch.com/2013/09/19/godaddy-buys-afternic-to-beef-up-its-domain-registry-marketplace/

    NameFind is their portfolio investment arm it was also acquired from NameMedia. when they bought Mike Berkens portfolio for $35 million and Marchex's portfolio, this was the division that handled those acquistions.
