Register.com to Join NameMedia’s Domain Listing Service as a Premium Promotion Registrar
NEW YORK, NY —April 6, 2010 — Register.com, a leading provider of web services and domain registration, today announced that it has signed an agreement to join NameMedia’s Domain Listing Service (DLS). Under the terms of the deal, Register.com’s customers will have access to more than two million domain names currently offered for sale through the DLS service located at AfternicDLS.com.
Similar to the MLS network for physical real estate, the DLS network provides a source of liquidity for digital real estate, or domain names, that are currently registered but are available for purchase. By listing their domain on DLS, domain owners expose their property to the largest source of potential buyers through a global distribution network, now including Register.com.
“We are excited to provide our customers with an additional opportunity to buy and sell premium domains,” said Register.com CEO Larry Kutscher. “This strategic partnership allows Register.com to couple our award winning customer service with expanded access to the Domain Reseller Marketplace.”
“Register.com is one of the industry’s leading registrars and its addition as a premium promotion partner for DLS will add significant value to Register.com and AfternicDLS customers,” said NameMedia CEO Kelly Conlin. “Through its global distribution network, AfternicDLS now receives more than 35 million requests each month by consumers looking for a domain name, making it the most productive platform for connecting domain sellers with domain buyers.”
